There is always that song that you hear on the radio, you start tapping your feet and singing along and then at the end of the track they announce who it is....and that it's Bananarama. Well I was not expecting to hear that and not expecting to like the new single as much as I did.
'Stuff Like That' is the new offering from the girls and is taken from the forthcoming album 'In Stereo' to be released next month. It's alright, a nice pop tune, very catchy and totally Bananarama. They also have a tour coming up this year plus they have always been on the bill of many an 80's festival and there are a few of those this year too. Yes, although they have gone through a few changes regarding the band members Sara Dallin and Keren Woodward have always been the original two banana gals and celebrate 36 years of success.
Dad from the Brew will be chuffed, in fact that new album will be whisking its way on to his Amazon wish list as soon as he reads this. He is 88 years young and loves Bananarama, he listens to all the oldies and I'm thinking these girls are keeping him very young. We just have to watch him when he's disco dancing but hey just goes to show there is no age limit to the fans of Bananarama.
I'm having a bit of a deja vu moment which isn't strange at the moment my lovely brewsters, There are a few to be honest, purely down to hormones and my age but I'm sure I have mentioned the return of Bananarama before. I do apologise, I have written so many posts now but could I find anything looking back? No, so I figured if I have written about them before it wouldn't do any harm to mention them again.
If you would like to catch up on news about Bananarama then you can go to their website here at www.bananarama.co.uk
There is everything on there, the tour dates, the video for the new single and a biography to catch up on their history, in case you need to brush up your memories of the 80's. They've become the old days now eh? I remember thinking the 60's were the old days but now kids are thinking it's the 80's which now makes me feel old.
I'll go and put some Bananarama on the music box and shake some moves, I'll be back to my teens in no time.....ahhh the memories.
Thanks for reading today, I will be back tomorrow for Teapot Tuesday but for now.......
Today is about anything to do with my love of music, whether it be reviews of concerts and gigs or shouting out my favourite tunes and my experiences at Rock Choir!
