1991





Dennis achieved her first success as a vocalist with D Mob, when their single "C'mon and Get My Love" reached #15 in the UK Singles Chart and #10 in the Billboard Hot 100 in 1990. Originally, it had only reached #93 (UK). It is regarded as an underground classic in the dance music field, and a second collaboration with D Mob, "That's the Way of the World," was also a major dance hit. It was followed by Dennis' debut album, Move to This.

She subsequently scored three solo UK Top 20 / U.S. Top 10 hits, and had considerable success in Japan, in the early 1990s, with "Just Another Dream" (UK #13, U.S. #9, Australia #14), which featured Dancin' Danny D on backing vocals, "Touch Me (All Night Long)" (UK #5, U.S. #2, Australia #16), which is probably her most remembered hit to date, and "Too Many Walls" (UK #17, U.S. #8, Australia #57).

Subsequent releases were only minor hits. Her final Top 40 hit in the U.S. was "You Lied to Me" in 1992, taken from her second album Into the Skyline, and her final Top 40 hit in the UK was "Waterloo Sunset", which made #11 during 1997. That same year, her last solo single "When Your Dreams Turn to Dust", peaked in the UK at #43. These two latter singles were both taken from her third and last solo album, Am I the Kinda Girl?, also including a third single, "West End Pad", the album opening track (UK #23).

"Touch Me (All Night Long)" stayed at #2 on the Billboard Hot 100 for two weeks, and was kept out of the #1 spot by Hi-Five's "I Like the Way (The Kissing Game)" the first week, and Mariah Carey's "I Don't Wanna Cry" the second week. The song was a cover and lyrical reworking of a 1984 single by Wish featuring Fonda Rae, which had hit #70 on the U.S. R&B chart that year. "Touch Me (All Night Long)" did reach #1 on the U.S. Hot Dance Club Play chart, and its follow-up, "Too Many Walls", which Dennis co-wrote with Anne Dudley of Art of Noise (and which bears a striking similarity in part to the ABC track "All of My Heart", which was also co-written with Anne Dudley), was a #1 Adult Contemporary hit in the United States. It was around this time Dennis agreed to join MTV Club's first tour, booked for six weeks. She dropped out on the third date, later publicly accusing one of Milli Vanilli's members (the tour's headline act) of sexual harassment. During this period, she recorded a song called "Find the Key to Your Life" with David Morales, for the soundtrack to the movie "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze".
