Throwback: Peter Andre – Mysterious Girl (1995)

PeterAndre-MysteriousGirl

From time to time we all get a bit nostalgic, so here's a throwback to one of the songs that will forever play in the soundtrack to my life, and the lives of so many other islanders around the world: Peter Andre - Mysterious Girl.

I was only a kid when this song was released but I remember it being absolutely huge. The song was so catchy and it sounded like Michael Jackson singing reggae. Then of course there was the music video, starring Peter Andre's six-pack.

Looking back the song probably wasn’t quite as huge as I remember it being. The single reached #1 in only one country - New Zealand, which happened to be the country that I grew up in. But I swear, nearly two decades later and all you need to hear in the club is that opening Jamaican drum and bam! - dance floor is packed with islanders.
