She Moves - Just For Tonight

She Moves were a 3 piece American girl group from the late 90s consisting of Carla Duren, Danielle Flora and Diana Bologna. All three girls met while they were dancers for the New York Knicks basketball team. They had a fairly short career which saw the release of their only album "Breaking All The Rules" in November 1997, which spawned 3 singles, the title track "Breaking All The Rules", "Just For Tonight", and "It's Your Love" - a cover of an old country track which has also been covered on Jo O'Meara's recently released debut album "Relentless". The girls also covered Nik Kershaw's "Wouldn't It Be Good", and "Forever Young" (a Japanese and European bonus track) which was also released as a god-awful dance song by Interactive in both 1996 and 2003.

The whole album was written and produced by the German team The Berman Brothers, who also worked with The Real McCoy ("Run Away") and Amber ("This Is Our Night"), with the album having a diverse range of styles such as pop, ballads, drum and bass and unashamed Europop.

"Just For Tonight" is one of these Europop tracks, and was the third and final single to be lifted from the album. The track never fails to get me bopping along, especially with the dramatic synths in one part - and the girls have good voices for a dance track for a change! The 2 released singles also had Berman Brothers Dance Mixes, turning them into Europop tracks not unlike "Just For Tonight"!

After the album was released, the girls sadly disappeared but I'm sure they are out there somewhere, a short but sweet stay in showbiz!

She Moves ROCKED! They were highly underrated. 'Breaking All The Rules' is one of my favourite songs of all time.

So, I know this is lots to ask, but you don't by any chance have an MP# of Breaking all the rules, the single, do you?

I bought the single way back in 97 or so when it came out. I happened upon your site tonight and saw the post which made me remember the song - which I had forgotten. I have absolutely no idea where that cd single is today.

*Fingers crossed*
