If Only I Could by Sydney Youngblood
The Texan-born singer Sydney Youngblood had three Top 40 hits in the UK in 1989, which were "Sit and Wait", "I'd Rather Go Blind" and this debut from the album "Feeling Free" - "If Only I Could" - which reached No.3 in 1989.

This song used the bassline and drumbeat from the Raze house music track, "Break For Love", and was also a massive hit in the clubs.

I remember only too well dancing to this one - in my bargain suit from Burton's - at the local nightclubs. Yes, you had to wear a shirt and tie to get into a club in the late 80s. Well, in my part of England you did, at least.
