    That surprises me. It doesn't sound instantly recognizable...and I thought I knew my "seventies".

    Edit: it was in the Tipparade, but never entered the Dutch Top 40.

    Gabrielle

    bannergabrielle.jpg

    Louise Gabrielle Bobb (born 16 April 1970), known simply as Gabrielle, is a multi-platinum selling, BRIT Award winning English singer and songwriter.

    [​IMG]

    Her debut single "Dreams" topped the UK Singles Chart in June 1993. Other singles include "Going Nowhere", "Give Me a Little More Time", "Walk On By" and "If You Ever" – a duet with East 17. After a few quiescent years Gabrielle made a comeback with "Rise", which became Gabrielle's second UK number one in 2000. The album of the same name also reached the top spot in the UK Albums Chart, where it stayed for three weeks. "Out of Reach" from the soundtrack to the film Bridget Jones's Diary reached number four in the UK Singles Chart. Gabrielle's greatest hits collection, Dreams Can Come True, Greatest Hits Vol. 1 was released in 2001.

    [​IMG]

    Gabrielle has won two BRIT Awards, the first in 1994 for British Breakthrough Act, and the second in 1997 for Best British Female.


    Gabrielle is currently recording a brand new album (2017) which will be her first studio album in 10 years.

    Spandau Ballet

    Spandau-Ballet.jpg

    Spandau Ballet is an English band formed in London in 1979. The band were inspired by, and an integral part of, the electro movement. They became one of the most successful groups to emerge during the New Romantic era.

    [​IMG]

    At the height of their popularity in 1984, they received the Brit Award for technical excellence. The band split in 1990 and the members pursued solo careers, with both Kemp brothers winning acting roles. Since their reformation in 2009, the band have been recognised at the Q Awards and Gary Kemp's songwriting has been honoured by the Ivor Novello Awards.

    It reminded me Blondie's "Atomic", it has that same energetic thing going on.

    p.s. I'm glad I could finally vote for To Cut A Long Story Short (because it wasn't a Duran Duran song and it also wasn't a Depeche Mode song)
