[Jane Child] -- I recently heard a song that probably has not crossed my ears in a good decade: "I Don't Wanna Fall in Love" by Jane Child. This upbeat bit of dance pop hit the charts in February of 1990. But it came from Child's self-titled debut album which was released in September of 1989. The single peaked at #2 on the Billboard Hot 100, and also did well around the world. Jane Child was also rather photogenic: Her hair was spiked on top, and she had ankle-length braids, and she also wore a chain connecting her nose ring and earring. Jane Child released two more studio albums -- Here Not There (1993) and Surge (2001) -- but has not been actively recording or performing since 2004.
Flashback: "I don't wanna fall in love | Love cuts just like a knife."
