THIS IS NOT A PWL RECORD! THE PWL LOGO IS USED JUST TO ILLUSTRATE THE STYLE OF THIS REMIX.
The author wanted to try and make this sound as much as a PWL record as he could.
"You're So Vain" written by Carly Simon, (1972)Elektra. Additional production and remix by Matt Pop. Drums by A. Linn. (Once again: thank you D. for the a capella!)

Solid HarmoniE (also SHE) were a British pop girl group formed in 1996. They weren't a Stock, Aitken & Waterman production, but I like very much their songs, especially "I'll Be There For You". It reached number #18 on Uk Single Charts and "To Love Once Again" (n°55 on Uk Single Charts). Initially the band was made up of Rebecca Onslow, Melissa Graham and Mariama Goodman, however Goodman left in 1997 to care for her mother. She was replaced by Elisa Cariera. Goodman rejoined the band later in the year, and the group became a four-piece.
The group was moderately successful, producing five singles and a self-titled album before disbanding in 1999. They had success in the Netherlands where their album went to #1 in the album charts and was certified gold. Also the single "I Want You To Want Me" peaked at #4 in the charts. Goodman joined R&B group Honeyz later that year.
You can see their chart positions on Wikipedia.

"ABCD", performed by Radiorama, is a 1988 dance track which is NOT a PWL remix but it's remixed as such. Some instrumental parts remind me of "Hot Girl" by Sabrina Salerno and "Love In The First Degree" by Bananarama, and some vocal parts remind me of "G.T.O." by Sinitta.
A really nice video I found on You Tube, a film
¡Hola a tod@s! Me llamo Francis Buiza y, en nombre de mi equipo de trabajo de clase, os presento el cortometraje Back to S.A.W., del que he sido guionista, editor, diseñador de sonido y director. ...
First aired in July 1991. Directed by Greg Masuak. Cathy is 22 years old in this video. Cathy's eye shadow changes color in this video. Purple when wearing the orange top, and green when wearing... this obviously wasn't a Stock, Aitken & Waterman production, the single wasn't so rich of instruments, etc.

They're Bananarama, but this video isn't a Stock, Aitken & Waterman production.
This is not a Stock, Aitken & Waterman production. She's Ivana Spagna, my favourite singer, she sings "Dedicated to the moon" a song from her 1° Album in 1987.

She's Taylor Dayne, I bought this record when I was young. It was an international hit, also famous here in Italy. Here you can see her debut single from the double platinum album "Tell It To My Heart" 1988. It wasn't a Stock, Aitken & Waterman production, the sound is different. But I liked it.

One True Voice were a British boyband created on the ITV television series Popstars: The Rivals, which also produced girl group Girls Aloud. The band was created by the public, who voted for their favourite hopefuls each week.
Their debut single, "Sacred Trust/After You're Gone", went head-to-head with Girls Aloud on December 16, 2002, for the Christmas number one spot. One True Voice lost out to the girls and had to settle for the #2 position. The group's manager, Pete Waterman, has speculated that the show was fixed against OTV, but has not said how.
