    As a community, we all need to take some alone time.


    Take a bottle of red, or maybe too and turn up the volume and sing along as bitterly as you possibly can.





    You drink your coffee,
    I sip my tea,
    And we're sitting here, playing so cool,
    Thinking, 'What will be, will be.'
    And it's getting kind of late now,
    Oh, I wonder if you'll stay now,
    Stay now, stay now, stay now,
    Or will you just politely say 'Goodnight'?
    I move a little closer to you,
    Not knowing quite what to do and I'm
    Feeling all fingers and thumbs,
    I spill my tea, oh silly me,
    It's getting kind of late now,
    I wonder if you'll stay now,
    Stay now, stay now, stay now,
    Or will you just politely say 'Goodnight'?
    And then we touch, much too much,
    This moment has been waiting for a long, long time,
    Makes me shiver,
    Makes me quiver,

    That idea never entered my head at first.



    Then I found the full ad poster and it mentions some duets.

    My head is spinning with what the duets would be.

    They both have enough music to fill up the night, but if they do go for a cover, I wonder if this song would appear, or maybe as a duet.

    Both are very different versions.

    Thats a good call :D they could easily sing that song between them.

    I've been trying to think of some other duets and my mind is completely blank, I can't think of anything. I did see a clip the other day of Toyah singing SWEET CHILD OF MINE and Justin Hawkins was playing the guitar, I suppose there is a chance that he might make an appearance too.

    I also recently discovered that Hazel O'Connor was briefly in the video for WHO'S THAT GIRL by The Eurythmics. I am probably the last person in the world to know this :lol:

    I would be really curious to hear a duet from each of their greatest hits. Say they both do Eighth Day and then both do I Want to Be Free., kinda like Brandon sung a Pet Shop Boys song and they then sang Human.

    But realistically, I'll be blown over by any song, the fact it's a duet of these two is enough.

    Well, he was revealed as one of the masked singers on last Saturday's show.

    I remember the video having various women in it, but only recall Bananarama appearing, so off to YT I go...

    :roll:

    I've just watched it again after all these years and I can not remember if I knew she was in the video. I did get a little more excited when I saw the female from Haysi Fantayzee, she's another one of my secret loves (I was such a whore back then)

    My Spotify has taken a Hazel battering this past couple of weeks and my one obsession this week is Rebecca.


    Such an emotional tune

    Yes, the possibilities are endless :dance:



    Oh was he? at least he will be available now.


    :Clol:




    :haha:




    That sounds so sad and she sings it beautifully. I wonder if Rebecca was a real person? either way its a lovely song about friendship.


    I keep meaning to ask - did you watch I'M A CELEBRITY GET ME OUT when Toyah was in the show?

    Oh my, Hazel sings it beautifully live, that was very moving as I listened to the song again.. It must be emotional for her singing those words filled with memories, what a beautiful tribute to Rebecca. From what Hazel said both she and Rebecca were ripped off by someone, sorry to hear this.


    I missed seeing that series, but I did see her on Celebrity Mastermind and she won :D her special subject was Boudica

    I remember first hearing the song and not knowing it was about a friend. I think I found that out on YT many years later. I love her croaky voice, it oozes with emotion. I'm so excited to see her live, I've seen Toyah before so as much as I'm excited at seeing her again, I'm a tad more excited for Hazel.


    Ho wow! I hadn't heard of this, I did catch her once on The Chase and was surprised by how good she was.



    She's my hero
