Samantha Fox mp3
Samatha Karen Fox, known best by her stage name as Samantha Fox is an English dance-pop singer, actress and former glamour model. She was born on 15 April 1966. The eldest daughter with two younger sisters, Fox attended St. Thomas More RC School, Haringey and developed an interest in theatre at very young. Her first stage appearance was at the age of three. She attended the Anna Scher Theatre School from the age of five and made her first television appearance in 1976 at the age of 10 in the BBC’s play “No Way Out.” From age 11, she attended the Judi Dench Mountview Theatre School near her home of Haringey She developed an interest in music, formed her first band at the age of 14, and incredibly signed her first record deal a year later but both theatre and music went on the backburner when her modeling career took off.
Her mother photographed her 16-year-old daughter for The Sunday People newspaper’s “Face and Shape of 1983” amateur modeling contest and was a joint runner up. Shortly after her pictures were published, she was invited for a test shoot with The Sun newspaper’s Page Three feature and posed topless with her parent’s consent under the headline “Sam, 16, Quits A-Levels for Ooh-Levels.” She would go on to win The Sun’s Page Three “Girl of the Year Award” for three consecutive years (1984-1986) and apparently posed nude for several UK men’s magazines and Penthouse Pet.
In the late-1980s, Fox began a successful singing career with Jive Records. Working with producers of note including Stock Aitken Waterman and Full force, she produces three albums in three years. Her debut single “Touch Me (I Want your Body)” was released in March of 1986 when she was just 19 and it rose to number 3 in the UK and number 4 in the US and charted in many other countries including Canada, South Africa and Australia. Her second single “Do Ya Do Ya (Wanna Please Me)” was a Top 10 hit in the UK, followed by “Hold On Tight.” Her third single secured a Top 30 place, and her final single missed the UK Top 40, charting at number 41.
Jive Records released her self-titled second album in 1987. The first single, “Nothing's Gonna Stop Me Now” was her third and final Top 10 UK hit, and peaked at number 80 on the Billboard charts. “I Surrender (To the Spirit of the Night)” failed to match its predecessors success and peaked at number 25 in the UK, with the next two singles “I Promise You (Get Ready)” and “True Devotion” failed to make it in to the UK Top 40. The fifth and final single “”Naughty Girls (Need Love Too)” secured a Top 10 placing on the US Billboard and was her biggest US hit to date and was also a Top 40 Hit on the UK singles chart.
The album was a joint effort by British and American producers who sought to blend Euro-pop and American Hip-Hop. The first UK single was "Love House,” followed by “I Only Wanna Be with You.” The third single was “I Wanna Have Some Fun.” The singles success varied greatly and no further singles were relased from the album.
Fox took a three year break and returned in 1991 with her fourth album, “Just One Night,” and the first single “(Hurt Me! Hurt Me!) But the Pants Stay On" failed to make an impact on both American and British charts. The second single, “Another Woman” performed moderately well on some European Charts and the third single was the album’s title track, fared about as well as the second single.
In 1992, Jive released Samantha's first “Greatest Hits” official compilation that included three new tracks. She also co-wrote and performed “Go for the Heart,” representing the UK in the 1995 Eurovision Song Contest in 1995 and placed fourth in the preliminary public voting. While failing to make the cut as a representative track, it was a modest hit in some European Territories
In 1997, she launched her fifth album, “21st Century Fox” that performed moderately well throughout Europe and Scandinavia but lacking worldwide distribution and promotion undoubtedly hurt the album’s prospects. The albums four singles (“The Reason Is You,” “Deeper,” “Let Me Be Free,” and “Perhaps”) had little impact on the charts despite numerous television appearances by Fox to promote the album.
In 1998, Fox released a single together with DJ Milano: “Santa Maria” charted in the UK at number 31, and was a Top 10 hit in Austria and the Czech Republic. She returned to theatre, combing acting and music, cast in Tayla Goodman’s “Virus” but withdrew when the musical’s backer withdrew funding.
Undeterred by the setbacks, in 2004 Fox teamed up with Mats Söderlund (a.k.a Günther) and their remake of “Touch Me” peaked at the coveted number one in Sweeden and was a Top 10 hit across the Scandinavian countries. Her sixth album was a Canadian production with Joe Barrucco. After its initial release, “Angel with an Attitude” was reissued in Australia to coincide with her Countdown Tour, including a remake of “Touch Me.” She went on to release “Midnight Lover” in 2008, an Euro-dance collaboration with Zante Dilemma, a Greek production team. She performed at the Sopot Festival in Poland at a concert dedicated to 80s music. In 2009, Fox was a guest vocalist on the track “Tomorrow” by Marc Mysterio and saw her first three albums with bonus tracks reissued in America, followed by another Greatest Hits compilation available in single and double CD format.
Most recently in 2010, she joined forces with “4 Strings,” a trance superstar to release her latest single “Forever,” before releasing her duet with Italian Singer Sabrina Salerno, a cover of Blondie’s hit “Call me” which peaked at number 4 on the Italian Dance Singles Sales Charts that summer. Samantha Fox has had a roller coaster career spanning three decades, but it looks set to continue in to the next decade.
