Throughout the '90s the U.K. music scene was filled with nerdy cockney types sporting messy threads and even messier hair. Fresh-faced Sophie Ellis-Bextor was among the first Brit-pop stars to break with this trend. Ellis-Bextor, former singer for U.K. new wave revival outfit Theaudience, found greater success as a disco/house diva, with the late-2000 single "Groovejet (If This Ain't Love)" alongside Italian DJ/producer Spiller. A year on, Ellis-Bextor was making waves with the pop single "Take Me Home," which hit the number one spot on the U.K. singles chart. That same year, she served up another chart-topper in the ultra-cool disco tune "Murder on the Dancefloor." ~ David Peter Wesolowski
