Get Real (song)

"Get Real" is a song by English singer Paul Rutherford, released in 1988 as the lead single from his debut solo album Oh World. A collaboration with ABC, the song was written by Rutherford, Martin Fry, Mark White and David Clayton, produced by White and Fry. "Get Real" remained in the charts for four weeks. The song received an airplay ban by the BBC. A music video was filmed to promote the single. Speaking of the song to Melody Maker in 1989, Rutherford said: ""Get Real" was so off the wall with the whole Acid thing going on, there was something special about it. I knew no one would understand it, but Island said it was a definite Top 10 hit." Upon release, Wee Papa Girl Rappers guest reviewed the song for Number One, with Sandra Lawrence commenting: "I'm quite into that acid music, it's good dance music but this one's a bit mellow, a bit commercial." Melody Maker described the song as a "slab of Acid for the radical dance faction, all squiggly synths and slithery bass." In 2004, FutureMusic described the song as "kind of like Giorgio Moroder meets Kraftwerk with a 303".
