I thought I knew how to handle my emotions
Till you lit the fuse that triggered the explosion
You turn me on with the power of electric love
Now I can't get enough, turn the voltage up

Chorus:
The slightest touch and I go crazy with desire,
The slightest touch could bring me to my knees
Oh watcha watcha touch cos I'm a real live wire
Your slightest touch is heavy on me

You turn me into a raving maniac
Till loco locomotive you keep me on the right track
You got my senses turned to your remote control
You put a spark in my soul now I'm too hot to hold

Chorus:
The slightest touch and I go crazy with desire,
The slightest touch could bring me to my knees
Oh watcha watcha touch cos I'm a real live wire
Your slightest touch is heavy on me

(Spoken) There's one thing that you should know
I'm about to lose my self control
So come a little closer no closer than that
Touch me that's where it's at

Chorus:
The slightest touch and I go crazy with desire,
The slightest touch could bring me to my knees
Oh watcha watcha touch cos I'm a real live wire
Your slightest touch is heavy on me

PERSONAL REVIEW:

This is one of those songs which bring back the best memories of the '80's. I remember back in '87 when I saw the video for the first time on TV that I was very overwhelmed by the freshed up remix-sound (by Shep Pettibone) and tight dance-routines of it.  I was convinced this had to be there first #1 hit worldwide. Well, as many know by now it hitted
top 5 (UK #4), but I was disappointed (spoiled by Five Star's extreme chartsucces in that time ofcorse!).
Strangely, now 14 years later I still share the same opinion. The single version still sounds strong and powerful, and really not that out-dated at all. I always thought it was a good idea of Five Star to re-release this track for another comeback and remix it for the dance-scene nowadays (like they did with "I Give You Give" in 1995).
But they didn't unfortunately. It seems Five Star isn't that keen on restyling there oldschool success-singles afterall, as they also made some late '90's remixes of "Let Me Be The One" & "Rain Or Shine (reggae mix)" and never released it..

So now the time has come for other artists, who grew up with Five Star, to give there own creative touch to those unforgettable Five Star songs. Like young Louise (ex-Eternal). Her management admitted this song was one of her all-time-faves, so that's why she re-recorded it for her Greatest Hits album. Always an honor...
But wouldn't it be nice if Five Star did the same thing for a change?
