Top singles from the past…
31 December 2020
Of all classic crackers that celebrated a birthday this year, and were featured here,
Turn The Volume picked STEP ON by HAPPY MONDAYS, released 30 years ago
this year, as the cracking cracker of all 2020 crackers.
Why? This is the dance floor killer I moved to in mysterious ways
for years now and will do so tonight (New Year’s Eve).
Shaun Ryder about the track: “It was fluke. We thought, this is the last thing we need! They sent over a tape with lots of songs from the back catalogue of Elektra. So we stuck the tape on and Step On was either first or second on the tape. We said, right – that’ll do!”

Rowetta‘s voice fills the studio)
