Thicke - When I Get You Alone  

Will fans will know Robin Thicke as the writer of the excellent Very Kind and you may have spotted the video for this track on MTV Hits or TMF in early 2003. Despite being a big hit in Europe and doing reasonably well in the US, it never took off here, which is a huge shame in my opinion cos it's a massive, brilliant track which deserves to be a hit. Robin's soulful vocals mixed with a classical sample, an urban outlook and great lyrics work surprisingly well together. It's just a shame there wasn't much to equal this on the album that followed, but Brand New Jones is worth a listen. An interesting fact which probably means more to Americans is that he's the son of 'Growing Pains' actor Alan Thicke.
