"Do Ya Do Ya (Wanna Please Me)" was the second single from British singer Samantha Fox's 1986 debut album Touch Me.

Song information[edit]

The hard rock song was Fox's second consecutive number one in Sweden, supplanting Fox's "Touch Me (I Want Your Body)". It was also a top ten hit in the UK, Switzerland, and Germany. The lyrics taunt the listener with lines such as "Are you strong enough?" and "I could get you underneath my thumb." Fox performed the song on a 1986 episode of Top of the Pops, and to this day remains a recurring feature of her live repertoire.[1]

Music video[edit]

The music video begins with Samantha Fox emerging from a limousine in a ruffled shirt and studded black leather jacket. Her valet looking on, Fox performs the number with her band while pulling several pranks on them. The clip featured members of Hanoi Rocks; Nasty Suicide, Timo "Timppa" Kaltio, Terry Chimes and Dave Tregunna as Fox's band.
