no lah, that's not him ... but who's Dawn Yip? as in what is she known for?
desireless
叶佩芬. She was the winner of the olden mandarin version of "Singapore Idol" locally.. Or should called it SuperStar Mark I? It was called "斗歌竞艺". After that she cut a few songs... then didn't become famous.... Now she's helping out at Jean Yip and officially the spokeswoman. And she was one of the judges for Super Star:

Hi David

Since you crave for Air Supply

Please sing this hit of theirs to the tune of Here I am which I have rewritten
Here I am playing with my organ again
And just when I thought yours had set them free
Those tits of yours keep taunting me

Holding yours, a feeling I never outgrew
Though each and every part of me has tried
Only mine can fill your hole inside……………

Hi cp

U should have tackled her then
By now you should be the CEO of the Lau-Yip Enterprise
producing money in the millions instead of reproducing cloney in the billions

I guess each day you can only hum to this tune made popular by Smokie

Twenty long years just waiting for a chance,
To tell her how I feel, and maybe get a second glance,
Now I've got to get used to not living next door to Pei Fern...

Every now and then there exists a solid masterpiece from a band out of nowhere and somehow they ended famous only for that piece.I call them "one hit wonders".
Here are some examples that I can recall,but there are many many more....


Amanda by ....??? (forgot the artistse)
The Model by Kraftwerk
99 Loveballoons by Nena
Desert Moon by Dennis De Young
Square room by Al Corey

Dennis Deyoung was more sucessful with Styxs.Remember the monster hit Babe?

Oh yeah... Square Rooms. Al Corley was an actor in a Gay show called "Dynasty"
... He had 2 other hits in Europe called "Cold Dresses" and "Land Of the Children" which of course didn't make it here to SG.

Kraftwerk... I only know this "Tour De France"

Nena made a comeback 2 years ago with a duet song "Anywhere" with KIM WILDE.. Woo how I love this chic. Kim Wilde did came back with this very much Madonna-styled song called "LOVED".
desireless
Talking about comebacks, these 3-4 years saw a lot of 80's artistes doing their comeback feats... but their campaign were rather unsuccessful cry.gif

a-ha - came back after 7 yr of silence.. but with rather weak result.
Duran Duran - came back good (in their original 5). But quite silent recently.
Kylie - wow.. totally mad over this gal. I believe her breast cancer slowed down down her pace.
Kim Wilde - one good song and that's it.
Bananarama - you'll be surprised with their hit "Move In My Direction" this July.. unexpectedly superb
Matt Goss - from BROS... one lousy album last yr
Modern Talking - came back in 1998 with their comeback album titled "Back For Good"... but just last yr they announced separation and are now "Gone For Good"
Debbie Gibson - came back (as "Deborah Gibson") with 1 album.. and went missing again from the pop scene. She's doing broadway now
Tommy Page - came back silently under another record company. Had an album but it was not officially released due to copyrights issues.
Rick Astley - last album released in 2001. After that, he released several "Best Hits" to cheat money.

Out of so many 80's artistes/bands.. the only one that I missed most is "Johnny Hates Jazz". Never another band had so many hits in just one album.
The Matrix
At least one still trying to come back now ... INXS ..

We built this city - starship
Putting on the Ritz - Taco
Shy shy - Kajagoogoo

dunno frankie goes to hollywood under the same category or not ...

They will never be the same without Michael Hutchence.Dang,life ended during kinky sex.Well, at least he died happy...........

"Never tear us apart" is my favourite track from the band.

Guess we can rename this "music" to "Reminiscent of the 80s". hahahaha ...

Interesting lyrics that not easy to forget ...

Oh yeah life goes on, long after the thrill of living is gone - ?
Workin' 9 to 5, what a way to make a livin' - ?
Close your eyes, give me your hand, darling - ?
You can do magic , you can have anything that you desire - ?

and during that period ... Sylvester Stallone make war shows more exciting. thousands of bullet also can't kill a good great American hero.

The Power of Love was the ultimate ballad...puts Celine Dion's song of the same name to shame.

And oh yes, who can forget the two geezers from Tears from Fears? Great anthemic, put your hands in the air, songs...especially when Adam Low puts in on during his set as Mambo.

I actually prefer the later albums, starting from Music of the Masses. The sound was mellower and had an edgier sound to it.

As for Soft Cell, I agree that most people would only have had heard of Tainted Love but the aqua man, aka Marc Almond, had a successful solo career and he is a brilliant song writer. good_very.gif

Baltimora died of AIDS in the 90's... silently until a fan pointed him out in the Orbituary.
FR David penned several hits made famous by other artistes. One of such was "Music". Not many knew it was written by him.
The Bangles are not one-hit wonder. They have hits like "Maniac Monday", "Walking Down your Street", "A Hazy Shade Of Winter", "Eternal Flame", "In Your Room", "If She Knew What She Wants", etc... until vocal Susanna Hoffs left them.
Village People.. I always wonder how they became GAY icon... lol.gif

And yes PP... Holly Johnson is Sero-Positive.. but he won't die yet. If you happen to have FGTH's 1st make of "Relax" video... it's set in a gay pub and it featured and old gay simulating an indecent act with banana and his mouth... yuk.gif ..
