____ Cathy Dennis has spent most of her musical career behind the shadows, primarily as a song-writer, but she made a huge splash in 1990 with Move to This, her debut solo album. This is one of the best dance albums of that decade, but it is much more than just another dance album.
During the four years that went into this album's production, Dennis worked with D Mob to record the song C'mon and Get My Love, and this served as the introduction of her voice to the public. Some have called this song a dance anthem, and there can be no doubt that it gets the body moving with its intense energy and unflagging beat. More great dance songs were to come, significant hits in the form of Just Another Dream, All Night Long (Touch Me), and Move to This. Dancin' Danny D of D Mob backs Dennis up on Just Another Dream (although he sounds a little too much like Rick Astley here for my comfort); this is the song that made me a fan, although Dennis' most memorable hit is probably All Night Long (Touch Me). The dance songs that didn't see release are really just as good as any on the album: Everybody Move bursts with energy, Got to Get Your Love takes a backseat to no track, and Taste Your Love finishes the album off with great pep and emotion.
Some critics were never won over by Cathy Dennis' voice, but I cannot agree with their oftentimes negative assessment of the few stray ballads on this CD. Too Many Walls paints a poignant picture of a love that could have been, and its run up the singles charts was none too shabby. My Beating Heart makes for a second ballad that does much to disprove Dennis' lack of range. You won't find any poetic musings to philosophize over in these lyrics, but Dennis' soulful delivery is a far cry indeed from throwaway pop. The only weak track on the CD, as far as I am concerned, is Tell Me - this song basically just lies there giving few signs of life. The other nine tracks more than make up for this one lackluster effort, however.
Cathy Dennis remains a force in music today, writing such hits as Can't Get You Out of My Head for Kylie Minogue. While her solo career faded in the mid-1990s, Move to This stands as a lasting testament to her talent. She co-wrote nine of the album's ten songs, was heavily involved in the mixing and production of the album, and created something that holds up remarkably well all these years later.

___A former dance diva with slick, soulful vocals, Cathy Dennis enjoyed a handful of pop hits during the early '90s before transforming herself into one of the U.K.'s most successful songwriters. Born in Norwich, U.K., Dennis started publicly performing at the age of 13 with her father's big band. Several years later, the burgeoning musician was singing with a cover band when she was spotted by Simon Fuller, a British artist manager who, at the time, was working with Dancin' Danny D and his club act, D-Mob. Fuller brokered a deal with Polydor Records where Dancin' Danny D would produce an album for Dennis. Three years later, however, an album had yet to materialize, and Dennis took a break to record vocals for D-Mob's "C'mon and Get My Love." The dance track proved to be her first taste of stardom as it ascended the charts on both sides of the Atlantic; the song also appeared on D-Mob's Little Bit of This, Little Bit of That, as well as Dennis' debut album, 1990's Move to This.
Co-writing much of her own material, Cathy Dennis remained on the charts with a combination of dance singles ("All Night Long (Touch Me)," "Just Another Dream") and ballads ("Too Many Walls".) The successful dance producer Shep Pettibone signed up to work on Dennis' 1992 sophomore album, Into the Skyline, but the record yielded no significant hits and quickly fell off the charts. Dennis recorded a more soul-based third album, Inspiration, yet the singer was quickly becoming disenchanted with performing and the album was ultimately scrapped, with only the track "S.O.S." seeing a release on the Beverly Hills 90210: College Years soundtrack.
As she grew increasingly interested in the music of Paul Weller and the Kinks, Dennis took a singer/songwriter approach to her earthy 1996 effort, Am I the Kinda Girl? It made even less of an impact than Into the Skyline, however, despite receiving some chart recognition for its emotional cover of the Kinks' "Waterloo Sunset." Having such a personal album tank was enough to convince Dennis to focus on songwriting and production for 19 Productions, a company that Simon Fuller was about to turn into a gold mine. One of Fuller's most promising acts, The Spice Girls, went on to sell millions of copies of "Wannabe," the group's infectious debut single that featured "Bumper to Bumper," a song written by Dennis, on Side B. Suddenly, Dennis found herself knee-deep in royalty checks. Successful songwriting work for S Club 7 followed, but the crowning achievement arrived when Kylie Minogue took another Dennis composition, "Can't Get You Out of My Head," to number one in multiple countries. Dennis and her co-writer — Rob Davis, former member of the glam band Mud — had a worldwide hit on their hands, for which they received an Ivor Novello songwriting award in 2002.
During the 2000s, Fuller found worldwide success as the producer for two singing-based talent shows: Pop Idol in the U.K. and American Idol in the U.S. Dennis penned and performed the franchise's theme song, and her music appeared on several albums by the shows' most promising alumni (including Clay Aiken and Kelly Clarkson). By the end of 2002, four different publications had named her as one of the highest-paid women in the U.K., and she continued earning accolades (not to mention additional royalty checks) by penning such chart-topping songs as Britney Spears' "Toxic" and Katy Perry's "I Kissed a Girl."
