The 1982 disco-esque hip-hop dance single Last Night A DJ Saved My Life was a one-hit wonder for New-York-based group Indeep. The international dance hit employed sound effects such as a ringing telephone and a toilet flushing. After an unsuccessful followup single, one of the female vocalists - Rejane Majloire - had better success with the Belguim techno-house group Technotronic, releasing hits like 1989's Pump Up The Jam. In 2001 Mariah Carey covered Last Night A DJ Saved My Life in her unsuccessful movie Glitter, and the song was featured on the movie's soundtrack. Following the poor reception of Glitter, Virgin Records dropped Carey from the label and rescinded their $100 million dollar five album contract after just the first record. Carey's film flop was also highlighted by her surprised promotional appearance and MTV's TRL with Carson Daley that ended in a psychotic striptease incident, which eventually lead to her two week hospitalization and lengthy disappearance from the public.
