      Scooter thought it would be wise to join forces with the legendary Status Quo for this release. It was on all the music channels a few months before Christmas and finally got a release in the week before Christmas. It flopped!

      Who are they:

      Scooter are a German dance act, comprising three members and Status Quo are a crusty English rock group, fronted by Francis Rossi.

      On this release:

      Re-working the Quo's 'Whatever You Want' could either be viewed as genius or career suicide. I am inclined to go with the latter. The production is fine, but the idea of putting the two acts together just does not work for me. Scooter deliver the dance side of things, while Status Quo sit totally out of place on the chorus section. The Quo are too old and too unfashionable to have been associated with Clubland style music. It results in the kind of track you would expect to be played when things are getting desperate at a dodgy cheesy party. Think DJ Otzi and Whigfield.

      The song is a far cry from Scooter's creative brilliance of 'Nessaja' and though they play on the jumpstyle trend well, it just sounds wrong.

      Remixes come from Jorg Schmid, who turns in a trancier mix, this slightly enhances the original but the song just does not lend itself to being remixed.

      Overall:

      I like Scooter, but this was a step in the wrong direction and a bad career move. Rewarded with a poor chart placing. Avoid
