HERITAGE: Daniel Bedingfield Gives An Energetic Performance Of His Chart-Topping Single "Gotta Get Thru This" (2001)


July 21, 2020

Daniel Bedingfield's 2001 single "Gotta Get Thru This" can stands as one of the most infectious tunes of all time, it's impossible to even hear the title without hearing the stuttered I-I-I-I gotta get through this and its cheery little melody spin round and round in your head ad infinitum. For that alone, he deserves at least a little credit.

Bedingfield proved to be a divisive character in UK garage — possibly due to his habit of singing his own name as an ad lib — but you can't deny his passion for the genre was sincere. His enthusiasm was always at 100 and regardless of what you thought of him, he really did love garage and bringing it to as wide an audience as possible.

Fun fact: the D'n'D team credited with production on this one counted none other Arthur 'Artwork' Smith as a member. So bear that in mind before you let your snobbery get the better of you.
