Sam Brown (Sam Brown - Stop! - 1988)

"All I want is to sit down and write new songs, not copy Stop endlessly..."

Sam Brown - Stop! A little about the favorite hit of the 80s ...

Today, recalling the music of the bright and radiant 1980s, the charming voice of Sam Brown immediately comes to mind ... "Ooh you'd better stop!" - the fans liked the composition so much that in one of her interviews the singer even said:

“All I want is to sit down and write new songs, not copy Stop endlessly…”

Song history

Released in June 1988, "Stop!" from the singer's debut album of the same name and to this day remains her biggest hit! At one time, this melodic thing was heard from every receiver, and later it was sold in huge circulation all over the world!

The most surprising thing about all this is that Samantha Brown herself is very biased towards this song ... The artist does not consider the popular track to be her best creation, and in no way connects its idea with her own life. Although ... the soulful, very emotional performance of the singer made the listeners think differently!

"Song Stop! - nothing more than a figment of my imagination! You know, sometimes the image appears in the head by itself ... That's exactly what happened with this song. My record company sent me to California for a couple of months to write new tracks. I remember writing it while driving on the Pacific Highway near Los Angeles... I'm 19 years old, covered in pimples, but wearing dungaree pants and Doctor Martens boots... I hardly looked like a typical beach beauty from Southern California! But it was a special feeling, and they inspired me!”

“In fact, this song does not reflect that period of my life in any way .... Yes, it is really very sad and deep, very emotional… But there is nothing autobiographical about it! It just popped into my head and I decided to let it be heard…”

The composition became a major hit in Iceland, Belgium, Norway and several other countries, making Sam Brown famous far beyond the borders of his homeland! But the singer herself does not consider the commercial success of the song the pinnacle of her musical career. Furthermore:

"Ask anyone who listens to my music, 'What's your favorite Sam Browne album?' All of them will answer 43 Minutes. No one will remember about Stop, because the record did not reflect the excitement that I experienced at that moment in my life ... "
