In 1988, English synthpop group Art of Noise released a cover of the song, featuring Tom Jones on vocals. The song became the band's biggest hit to that point, reaching number eighteen on the U.S. dance charts[6] and number five on the UK Singles Chart, higher than the original in that country. The guitar and horns break in the middle of this cover musically references the themes to Dragnet and Peter Gunn (two songs the Art of Noise covered with much commercial success) as well as their own breakthrough hit, "Close (To the Edit)" and "Paranoimia", their 1986 collaboration with Max Headroom[disambiguation needed]. This cover was later included as part of an episode of the series Listed on MuchMoreMusic, which was on the Top 20 cover songs. It can also be heard during the main title sequence of the movie My Stepmother Is an Alien. Tom Jones later recorded a version of the song for his 2003 Reloaded: Greatest Hits album.

LyricsEdit

Art Of Noise featuring Tom Jones:

You don't have to be beautiful
To turn me on
I just need your body baby
From dusk till dawn
You don't need experience
To turn me out
You just leave it all up to me
I'll show you what it's all about

Chorus:

You don't have to be rich
To be my girl
You don't have to be cool
To rule my world
Aint no particular sign
I'm more compatible with
I just want your extra time
And you kiss
You gotta not talk dirty baby
If you wanna impress me (ah ah ah)
You can't be too flirty mama
I know how to undress me
Let me be your fantasy
And maybe (baby) you could be mine
You just leave it all up to me
We can have a good time
(REPEAT CHORUS)
Think I'd better dance now
(La la la)
Women and girls rule my world
I say they rule my world
Act your age mama (not your shoe size)
Not your shoe size
Maybe we could do the twirl
You don't have to watch Dynasty
To have an attitude
You gotta leave it all up to me
My love will be your food
(REPEAT CHORUS)
