I was 18 when that song came to the US, the perfect age to be completely and utterly repulsed by it.

I have a greatest hits album of theirs ('The Psychedelic Sound Of...' or something) but since I wasn't around when people listened to them I honestly never distinguished between which ones were the hits and which ones weren't.I remember a few of the other ones too like Fire Eingine and Reverberation but I have no idea if those were even popular :o

Out of all of the Elevators' singles, "You're Gonna Miss Me" was the hit, but "Reverberation (Doubt)" Bubbled Under a little later on. The Easter Everywhere singles, "She Lives" and an edited version of "Slip Inside This House" had small followings of their own, especially in Texas while the second album had some impact in Texas, Detroit, and 'Frisco. Around my area of SE Michigan, they had a small following thanks to "You're Gonna Miss Me" being a big Top 10 hit on WKNR, which introduced the Metro area to a lot of great bands that had a tough time in many other areas as well as a lot of the area's Garage Punk bands long before CKLW turned into the hit station.

rick astley - never gonna give you up (HD) - YouTube
A classic case of a iconic debut hit turning into the only song anyone remembers. "Together Forever" was also a US #1...and I still feel the pain.

He had a little more success in The US after "Never Gonna Give You Up" SAW-ed into the Top 3, but then again who remembers "Cry for Help?" His first three albums were Top 40 in The States...then again I'm sure that most copies wound up in Salvation Army stores by 1995. His 1993 album Body and Soul had a few counted sales in The States when the rest of the world dumped him right out as "Hopelessly" turned into his last US hit. At best, you can say that he broke through after his SAW years, and that he did have a like of Soul music that saved his recordings from being totally 80's Bubble Music (A cover of "Ain't Too Proud to Beg" being a very small hit.)

As you can tell, my Post-High School years were already Rick Rolled.

Does anybody remember this song? For some odd reason I use to jam to this when it came out. It use to bass pretty hard in my truck, I think it was around 96 or 97? Whitetown "Your woman"

Of course, great song! If I remember correctly, that album was entirely self-recorded at that guy's house, always a cool thing to hear.

Not from me. Good choice that was a mark of the Mid-90's.

He's possibly still recording, but as far as Pop's concerned, this was the end all and be all. Taking off from "Land of 1,000 Dances" (where that catchy "Naaaaa-na-na-na-naaaaa" bit comes from) and building a mega hit from there. Possibly it turned too mega for the media.
