During recording, the Bee Gees played a prank on their manager Robert Stigwood, sending him a version with the line "backwards and forwards with my cock hanging out" to see if he was paying attention to their work. For the released version, the line is "backwards and forwards with my heart hanging out".
A lot of her follow-up albums after that initial debut release were heavy on remakes or outright covers, which I don't think helped her career too much either especially when she was trying to crossover in the midst of the huge teen market dominated by Christina/Britney/etc.Mandela Effect moment: I remembered the Grammys taking away Milli Vanilli's "Best New Artist" Grammy but in fact, Rob & Fab voluntarily gave them up and The Grammys just chose not to name a runner up. Neneh Cherry was probably livid.
LeAnn Rimes debut album is one of the rare albums I remember my mom buying. It's weird how career kind of petered out with no huge scandal or meltdown. She had an extramarital affair but was in the late '00s when she was starring in TV movies. I think her critical mistake was trying to cross over into pop when she should've just doubled down with country but Idk if anyone foresaw country becoming the big arena/stadium music of the '00s and on.
She still got that sweet sweet Coyote Ugly soundtrack money out of the Top 40 crossover attempt though, I guess.
I looked up her Wikipedia and apparently what did ruin her career was her record label putting out a bunch of compilations of unreleased early material and her getting into a legal dispute with them over such BS. By the time, she was able to do an album on her own terms it was 2002 and the ship had probably sailed by then.A lot of her follow-up albums after that initial debut release were heavy on remakes or outright covers, which I don't think helped her career too much either especially when she was trying to crossover in the midst of the huge teen market dominated by Christina/Britney/etc.
