“Stop!” is a song by the English singer-songwriter Sam Brown, written by Brown, Gregg Sutton, and Bruce Brody. It appears on her debut album of the same name.
“Stop!” only reached number 42 in the UK charts when it was first released. The follow-up single from the same album “This Feeling”, faired even worse peaking at 91. However, “Stop!” was re-released in 1989 and reached number 4, becoming Brown’s biggest hit to date, and spending 12 weeks on charts. It was also subsequently a hit in eleven other countries and was responsible for bringing Brown to greater public attention. The song peaked at number 1 in Belgium, Iceland, and Norway. Additionally, it was the 35th best-selling single of 1989 in the UK. The song was featured in the soundtrack of the 1992 film Bitter Moon.
It was covered by blues rocker Joe Bonamassa in 2009, who recorded a seven-minute version of the song for inclusion on his album The Ballad of John Henry.
