"When Samantha Fox pens a song she sure knows how to make you feel it. "Nothing You Do, Nothing You Say" is the best track here along with a few others, "Another Woman", "Just One Night", "Pleasure Zone", and "Spirit of America." Check out her I Wanna Have Some Fun cd she co-wrote another great song named "Confession.""
Some Great Tracks

"The hardest thing for a person to do is to make them eat their words. I might have to do that here.Samantha Fox's "Just One Night" does in fact have some songs that are a snooze, which I stated in a review for "21st Century Fox", but there are also some great highlights."Just One Night", the song, is an ok ballad with a few quircks at the end as her and her love intrest joke around about his "problems". Cute and sexy."Don't Cry Wolf" is a great upbeat dance number. Maybe the best on the set."What You See Is What You Get" is a good little rock number, which the Foxy one aims for few of here with duds like "Pleasure Zone". "Spirit Of America" is a track with guitars that rocks. Who knew the British Bombshell was red, white and blue?By far the best track is "Nothing You Can Do, Nothing You Can Say", the almost tearful ballad with pop and rock grooves not to mention background singers that are not being overused for once on the album (as they are in the awful rap version of "Another Woman (Too Many People)"). Awesome vocals and also cheers to Sam for cowriting the best track on the album, and the only one truly worht shelling out the dough for it."Hurt Me! Hurt Me!" is also a good track with a lots of potentail and a funny stroy with Sam in the club and Full Froce trying to get into her pants, "But The Pants Stay On".All and all a good listing of some songs and a few hard rocking duds and dance numbers that jsut don't click like "Saving It Up". But enjoyable for it's highlights.PS For a good version of "Another Woman", try on of the Greatest Hits Sets."
Samantha Fox "Just one night"

"Like that album, especially "Just one night" which is the definitely the most stimulating song I know (put it in when you get romantic with your partner). Also "Don't cry wolf"is good and really speedy. "Nothing you do nothing you say" is great (also written by Sam herself)."Spirit of America" gives a real- you can reach for the stars- feeling. Also "Another woman" is a smash. All other songs are very nice,too. Like it a lot!!"
The Fox's 'One Night' Stand

"Ah, Samantha Fox. She was an 80's pin-up queen, notorious for her days as a topless Page 3 model in the UK. She's also quite notorious for what could only be called 'sleazy cheese'. Campy pop songs with a naughty vibe in them sung by a naughty girl.
Naughty Miss Fox opens the album up with the thumping club cut 'Hurt Me! Hurt Me! (But The Pants Stay On)'. Silly and sleazy is the tune she's playing here, and she plays it so well. Fun continues on with a medley of the disco classics 'More More More' and 'Love To Love You Baby', done in true Fox style. A clubby pop cut 'Don't Wait Up', is a good track too, and is followed by the title cut, which is a funkier R&B attempt.
Sam's next track sort of reminds me of Janet Jackson's 'Escapade', and is called 'Pleasure Zone'. The rest of this album all falls along the same vein as these tracks, fun club pop from the early 90's. More good examples of this includes 'Don't Cry Wolf' and 'Saving It Up', the latter of which reminds me of the Pebbles single 'Giving You The Benefit'.
Now there is one chunk of rather stinky cheese wedged in this fun little collection. The not necessarily bad 'Spirit Of America' is weak, in it's attempt at faux- patriotism. Sam's a Brit babe, why sing an ode to us? Very odd really. Not bad, but just, well, strange.
I think it'd be really fun if Samantha Fox made a comeback. Hey, crazier things have happened. Fun little pop effort."

"Back when "touch me" came out in 86 I really loved the song. I was living in Europe at the time and it was a huge hit over there. When I discovered the album by the same title I bought it right away in order to start my collection of Samantha fox. Browsing through the other albums I heard the samples for "Just one night" and thought, I have to get this one next. I didn't know about the album until I got onto the net and discovered Amazon.com (yes my life is nothing without Amazon.com) the samples hooked me so I ordered it. On the first listen, I thought, Give me a break, can't the woman do anything more then moan and groan her way through a song? I liked Hurt me Hurt me but knew right away it would not be a favorite of mine. "Love to love you" is much better though she goes overboard with the moaning. for me the best track on the album is "Another woman" "Spirit of America" grew on me and so did "pleasure zone." I can see however with this album why Samantha's career suddenly dried up. I mean you've done it once with the sex thing, move on; Madonna did. this is the kind of CD that you will play once in a while and only if you feel like listening to something different. It certainly is not going in my top CD rack. I do however like the spoken word aspects of the album and would love it if Samantha released such a CD for a laugh. She sounds like a really nice woman, funny and sexy but her problem from day one has been that she has put her sexuality above her music and it cost her in the end."
