Bucks Fizz - When We Were Young

"Love has gone, tears are here, nothing left"

1983: Most of my UK readers are probably familiar with Bucks Fizz. They were pretty successful in the 80's (including a win at Eurovision) and have often been called the UK's Abba. The comparison is particularly apt given the make up of the group (two guys, two girls - all pleasantly chirpy) and while they're nowhere near as great as Abba, they've got a surprising amount of fantastic singles. One of my favorites is When We Were Young, a cover of the Warren Bacall song. It's completely over the top and that's why I love it so much. Plus, don't you think that in the verses the singing sounds kind of like Lil' Chris?? Just a thought.

Ahh, that's what the Blogosphere needs - more of the Fizz! They were indeed pretty big here in the UK for a few years, albeit considered deeply uncool by the majority of the record-buying public. Having said that, their three UK #1 singles in the space of twelve months in 1981-82 means that loads of people must have secretly liked them!

Yeah, they're completely uncool but therein lies there charm :)
