She enjoyed a second Number 1 dance hit in 2000 with a new version of her 1970s club hit song "Don't You Want My Love" (as Debbie Jacobs-Rock), produced by Rosabel. A track which is still being played in clubs and remixed to this day.  Other famous disco tracks performed by Debbie Jacobs include "Doctor Music" and "Maybe This Time", the latter of which is now a rare record and has been known to fetch high asking prices.
