"Last Thing on My Mind" is a song written and recorded by English girl group Bananarama. The song is featured on their album Please Yourself and was released as the album's second single in the UK in 1992. It was produced by Mike Stock and Pete Waterman, two-thirds of the Stock Aitken Waterman (SAW) trio. Pete Waterman said in 2002 the song was influenced by Mozart. The single met with little success, peaking at number seventy-one in the UK singles chart.
"Last Thing on My Mind" was also covered by English pop group Steps in 1997. Produced by Pete Waterman and released as the second single from their album Step One, their version fared much better, hitting number six in the UK, number five in Australia and number one in Belgium.
The two main verses are performed by Faye and Claire, respectively, whilst Lisa performs the bridge, after the instrumental. The chorus is performed by the entire group, and the song features no solo male voice.
The music video, which was filmed in Cuba, features Lee picking up all the band members in his convertible. When they sing the chorus, each member is singing a scene is similar to ABBA's Mamma Mia.
