When situations never change
Tomorrow looks unsure
Don't leave your destiny to chance
What are you waiting for
The time has come to make your break
Breakout

Don't stop to ask
And now you've found a break to make it last
You've got to find a way
Say what you want to say
Breakout...

Even the lyrics just fit the music so well. Also, that moderation in the end of the chorus is just heavenly.

"Breakout" was such a fun song then and it still is now. It hit #1 on the US Adult Contemporary chart.

"Am I The Same Girl" is just as fun. Even Martha Stewart used it for a while for her then-new show post-prison stint. It also hit #1 on the same chart.

Both songs would be their only two #1 songs, and the latter was the last time they even hit the top 20 with anything. They continued to release music but failed to ever chart.

There's something about some of these EuroPop groups. They have that one (or two) really popular catchy songs, and the rest is just trash. EuroPop has always had a different vibe and feel to it. It never hits in the US the same. Robbie Williams is a great example. The two big songs here, "Rock DJ" and (very minimally) "Let Me Entertain You." He's huge in the UK, but I can't listen to his other music. It's just horrible. I wanted to like him, but it's shit music.

Not saying Swing Out Sister is shit. But not saying they've done anything attention worthy outside of these two songs either. lol

"Breakout" is a stone-cold bop, though.

You people saying they were one hit wonders must not have lived in NYC in 1988 because "Surrender" was also a fairly big hit, albeit probably only on black radio. I fucking adore the shit out of that record - classy sophisticated adult black jazz/pop that never even thinks - not for one second - about looking down on its audience.

"Surrender" is a 1987 single released by British pop act Swing Out Sister from their debut album, It's Better to Travel. It was issued as the follow-up to the successful single, "Breakout". The song peaked at #7 on the UK Singles Chart in January 1987 and logged four weeks in the top ten.[1]

Over a year after its initial release, remixes of "Surrender" reached the U.S. Billboard Hot Dance Club Play chart, peaking at #22 in May 1988.[2]

The song features a trumpet solo performed by John Thirkell and features Drewery laughing at the beginning of the song.

"Surrender" was the next single after "Break Out" in succession from the same album, It's Better To Travel. But have you heard "Waiting Game" from the succeeding album, Kaleidoscope World?

Yeah, here neither, but the group was popular with club deejays and they had good enough music videos.
