MANDY MOORE : I Wanna Be With You
Lifted from the soundtrack to the movie ‘Center Stage’ (American spelling of ‘centre’), ‘I Wanna Be With You’ was Mandy Moore’s most successful US hit, peaking inside the top 30 Stateside back in 2000. It was also one of only two songs that charted there.
Here in Australia, however, we were in love with Mandy Moore. Her debut single ‘Candy’ hit the Aussie top five back in the late ’90s, with future successes including the forward-thinking smash ‘In My Pocket’.
Although small on a global scale, Australia was Mandy’s most successful market – and her tender ballad ‘I Wanna Be With You’ gifted her another top 20 smash. A fresh, summery ballad that we still love 11 years on.
