Stock Aitken Waterman, sometimes known as SAW, were a UK songwriting and record producing trio consisting of Mike Stock, Matt Aitken and Pete Waterman. They had great success during the mid to late 1980s and early 1990s. The three are considered to be one of the most successful songwriting and producing partnerships of all time, scoring more than 100 UK top 40 hits, selling more than 40 million records from 1984 to 1993 in the Uk and probably more than 500 million records globally worldwide.
SAW started producing Hi-NRG underground club hits, but earned worldwide success with a mix of Hi-NRG-influenced sound and romantic lyrics and referred to themselves as the British Motown. During 1987-1989, their music style was labelled "Eurobeat" in Europe.
