four letter word: tops!

KIM WILDE - SUBURBS OF MOSCOW
marvellous 1984 album track.

Difficult to believe she is now advertising high street vitamin pill stores in a tacky TV advert!!

love some of kim's early songs - she's so well-travelled too!

Often times I look at your blog and think - this guy is **me**!

Seriously, this is the apex of your freaky tastes mirroring mine. Am I in some kind of strange 'Being John Malkovich' type movie? And that is a great photo of Kim, by the way. You are my new hero. Peace out!

Lovely to see Kim Wilde there. Her early singles where unbeatable pop records in my humble opinion. I mean has there ever been a better run of singles from "kids in
America" all the way through to "love blonde" (I even love "child come away, which strangely was her first flop record, although it is very much in the vein of the very great "Cambodia"). And she looked sooo cool at the time.

After that it all went a bit pearshaped ("you keep me hanging on" anyone or that duet with Junior, I mean what was she thinking of), but I will always have a soft spot for "our" Kim.

And the albumsleeve to the debut album, is one of the coolest ever.

moogaboo- what a great comment!!!

vintage kim is brilliant- even with a few blips (another step /hey mr heartache /keep me hanging on)- she still managed to come back and blow me away with 'you came' and the amazing 'never trust a stranger'.

but when all is said and done- can she ever top cambodia?

cambodia is also my favourite single sleeve EVER!

As Laurent might say, the nights without Kim Wilde are a lot less beautiful.
