About the song[edit]

It was produced by British producer Rollo and became a huge number 1 club hit in both the US and United Kingdom. The song reached number 4 in the Netherlands and number 22 in Belgium.[1] It charted in the UK twice, first at number 33 when it was first released in 1994, then at number 40 with a 1997 remix by Peter Ries.

Kristine wrote "Feel What You Want" with Rollo and Rob Dougan. When asked in an interview about how she came up with this song, she said:

"My stepfather had died and I really was depressed over his sudden death. He was my mentor, really, and one of my heroes. And he died of an aneurysm really suddenly. So that was really feeling his loss. That song just made me think about everything from religion to pollution to the planet. I wove a lot of things that I was feeling into that song. 'Sun rises at 9, it departs at 5 again, ain't doing overtime no more. In this world of color the brightest pictures are plugged right into your wall,' in television, you know, it just seemed like everything on the news was depressing. So when you're depressed it even seems more depressing. I felt like I was numb from the death and I was not living anymore. I was just kind of existing."[2]

"Feel What You Want" was featured on the soundtrack of Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories on the Rise FM radio station.
