Do Not Disturb (song)
"Do Not Disturb" is a song recorded by English girl group Bananarama. It was written and produced by the production duo of Steve Jolley and Tony Swain. Originally released as a stand-alone single in 1985, the track was later added to Bananarama's third album True Confessions which was issued by London Records a year later. "Do Not Disturb" was released in the UK, Australia, Germany and Japan but only charted in the UK.
Bananarama did not like the song. Group member Keren Woodward later said of the True Confessions album, "It is all our ideas, it is what we wanted to sound like and sing about. Except 'Do Not Disturb' which Swain and Jolley wrote and which we don't think is very good. Thats why there's eleven songs on the LP instead of ten". When released, "Do Not Disturb" was a mid-charting single, peaking at number thirty-one.
The song was also issued as 3 separate shaped picture discs, each featuring a member of the group, which came with a plinth to put them on display.
Famous quotes containing the word disturb:
“Yet once more, O ye laurels, and once more,
Ye myrtles brown, with ivy never-sere,
I come to pluck your berries harsh and crude,
And with forcd fingers rude
Shatter your leaves before the mellowing year.
Bitter constraint and sad occasion dear
Compels me to disturb your season due:
For Lycidas is dead, dead ere his prime”
—John Milton (16081674)
