|Robin Denselow on Just What I Always Wanted|
|"With 'Just What I Always Wanted' Mari Wilson found the perfect song to fit her image - emotional, slightly camp & sounding as if it might have been a Pop hit back in the early 60s. It was tongue-in-cheek but performed with deadpan panache, treated the same way Mari treats her stage uniform with her long gloves, jewellery & enormous beehive hairdo."|
As Wilson's fifth single release, "Just What I Always Wanted" was her first UK top 40 hit, reaching No. 8 in October 1982.
