"Rush Rush" was the first single released from Paula Abdul's second album, Spellbound. Written by Peter Lord, and produced by Peter Lord and V. Jeffrey Smith (both members of The Family Stand), the song achieved success in the U.S. where it topped the Billboard Hot 100.
The song ranked #60 on Billboard's Greatest Songs of all time.[

"Rush Rush" was a departure for Abdul stylistically, as it was her first ballad released as a single, following as it did the five uptempo singles from her debut LP, and was viewed by all observers as a rather risky strategy in kicking off her second album of new material Spellbound. But the decision was vindicated, as it was very well received at retail.
Abdul laid down a scratch vocal for the track, which was never intended to make it to the song's final mix. But the producers felt that its unpolished sound was what was needed to give the song its ingenuous tone, to match its subject matter and accompanying promotional video clip; it ended up on the final cut.

The video features a street race and co-stars Keanu Reeves, drawing stylistic inspiration from the 1955 James Dean/Natalie Wood film Rebel Without A Cause, and as such, has a period theme. A 90-second dramatic prelude to the song rather mirrors the characters from "Rebel." The video was directed by Stefan Würnitzer[1], and produced by Karen Rohrbacher for Lucasfilm Commercial Productions. [info courtesy: wikipedia.org]
