Liquid Gold - "What's She Got"

What's She Got (Radio Mix) - What's She Got? / Coming Down

(Debuted September 3, 1983, Peaked #86, 4 Weeks on the Chart)

Liquid Gold had been a One-Hit Wonder in the disco era when they took the song "My Baby's Baby" to # 45 on the Hot 100 in 1979. When disco fell from grace that year, most acts associated with the genre were barely heard from again, especially those that were merely made up of studio musicians working under a producer's direction (as Adrian Baker did for Liquid Gold). "Disco," on the other hand, didn't really die out as much as it went "underground" and evolved into the dance/club music of the 1980s. While Liquid Gold remained on the charts in their native Great Britain, they wouldn't return to the U.S. pop chart until four years later.

"What's She Got" was a great 1980s dance song that should have been given a better chance than it did. After four short weeks, the song was gone from the pop chart. Soon after that, so was Liquid Gold. The group splintered apart and never got a chance to return.
