"I'm Gonna Get You" is a 1992 song by Bizarre Inc featuring Angie Brown from their second album Energique. It contains a replayed sample of the "why waste your time, you know you're gonna be mine" line from "Love's Gonna Get You" by Jocelyn Brown and "Brass Disk" by Dupree.
Top of the Pops
The song was also performed on Top of the Pops in 1992. Previously, in 1991, they had performed "Playing with Knives" and "Such a Feeling" on the show and the following year they performed "Took My Love".
The Voice UK
Brown sung the song for a The Voice UK audition. Even though it brought many audience members to their feet, none of the judges turned around even though will.i.am noted that the song had inspired part of the Black Eyed Peas song "Boom Boom Pow". He said it was "one of [his] favourite songs and [he] never thought [he] would get to meet the person who sung it". He elaborated:
Why is that important to me? Because we were recording Boom Boom Pow and we were coming up with a bridge part and I was like "Fergie, have you heard this song? You have to do it like this!" I played your song for the power on that section. I never thought I was going to meet you one day.
The fact that Brown had not been selected made the audience and TV viewers furious, with one viewer branding it a "disgrace".
The song charted at #1 on the Hot Dance Club Songs and #47 on the Billboard Hot 100. In addition, the song made #99 on 1993's MTV Year End Countdowns. It also charted at #1 on the Canadian dance chart. In the UK, the song first entered the UK Singles Chart in 1992 at #17, eventually peaking at #3 on the UK Singles Chart.
Ned Raggett of AllMusic called the song a "noted smash, with great diva vocals from Angie Brown (one of her earliest star turns) and a simple but still sweeping string section reminiscent of disco's orchestrations at their best".
