  • Londonbeat's career started in the Netherlands where "There's a Beat Going On" reached the Top 10, and then "9 A.M (The Comfort Zone)" which subsequently became a modest success in the United Kingdom. They are best known for their song "I've Been Thinking About You", which hit #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and the Hot Dance Music/Club Play charts in 1991, and for their close harmonies.
  • Band members include Americans Jimmy Helms (who also had a successful solo career and sang radio jingles) and George Chandler; with Jimmy Chambers (born 20 January 1946), Trinidad and multi-instrumentalist William Henshall (credited as Willy M). Their follow-up single "A Better Love" became a Billboard Hot 100 Top 20 hit, and they returned to #1 on the dance chart with "Come Back" (Hot 100 #62).
  • In 1995, Londonbeat entered the UK heats of the Eurovision Song Contest with "I'm Just Your Puppet on a ... (String)", however they were not selected to go to the main contest (losing out to rap group Love City Groove) and the single limped in at Number 55.
  • In 2003, Londonbeat re-grouped with a new line up and signed to German record label Coconut. An album called Back in the Hi-Life featured re-recordings of "A Better Love" and "I've Been Thinkin' About You" amongst the new tracks.
  • Marc Goldschmitz left the band in 2004, for his German indie-pop project, die Unerklärlichen.
