"Feel What You Want" is a 1994 single by American club music singer Kristine W. The song appears on the album Land of the Living.

Background[edit]

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:

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

Critical reception[edit]

Billboard wrote about the song: "After being the center of a fierce major-label bidding war, this European dance/pop smash is finally available domestically—and the odds are mighty good that it will meet with similar success here both on dancefloors and over radio airwaves. Kristine has a striking voice, and she turns in an urgent performance that transforms the house-rooted song into an anthem to be reckoned with. Will sound great on boom-boxes on the beach."[2]

Music & Media wrote: "A keyboard and a voice alone usually lead to a ballad. Dance has its own rules though. If there was a prize for the most sparsely arranged pop dance record, this track would win."[3]

Network 40 said that the song were "displaying a unique Dance groove" in their review of "Feel What You Want" .[4]

Chart performances[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.[5] 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.

Music video[edit]

The music video of "Feel What You Want" was directed by Lindy Heymann.[6]

Impact and legacy[edit]

DJ Magazine ranked it number 91 in their list of Top 100 Club Tunes in 1998.[7]
