Stock Aitken Waterman (abbreviated as SAW) was an English songwriting and record producing trio consisting of Mike Stock, Matt Aitken, and Pete Waterman. The trio had great success during the mid to late 1980s and early 1990s. SAW is considered to be one of the most successful songwriting and producing partnerships of all time, scoring more than 100 UK top 40 hits, selling 40 million records and earning an estimated £60 million (about $104 million).
SAW started producing underground club hits, but earned worldwide success with a mix of Hi-NRG-influenced sound, romantic Motown lyrics and Italian disco melodies. During 1984–1989, their musical style was labelled Eurobeat or Hi-NRG. They also put swing shuffle element to their songs.
