Rick Astley - Hold me in your arms

It was "Hold Me In Your Arms" (UK #10)

...Or so it seemed. With his second album, Hold Me in Your Arms, it's hard not to wonder if steroids, not genuine muscle power, were the secret to Astley's debut. Sure, each chorus is relentlessly melodic, while the beat remains as belligerent as ever, but somehow the magic is missing.

As is usually the case with dance music, most of the blame lies with the producers. The Stock-Aitken-Waterman team... [continue on]

Hold Me In Your Arms (Rick Astley)

Weve been trying for a long time
To say what we want to say
But feelings dont come easy
To express in a simple way

But we all have feelings
We all need loving
And who would be the fool to say, that if you

Hold me in your arms
I wont feel better
If you hold me in your arms
We can brave this storm together

We both know theres a problem
A problem that weve got to face
So put your trust in me, lover
No-ones ever gonna take your place

cos we all have a problem
We all have fears
But theres always got to be a way
Yes we all have feelings
We all need loving
And you would be a fool to say, that if you

Hold me in your arms
I wont feel better
If you hold me in your arms
We can brave this storm together


You only have to hold me
Touch me to make me feel so good
You only have to hold me
Feel me
To make me feel the way you know I should

Hold me in your arms
Hold me in your arms
Hold me in your arms
Hold me in your arms
When you gonna hold me in your arms
Hold me in your arms
Hold me in your arms
Hold me in your arms
Hold me in your arms
Hold me in your arms
Hold me in your arms
Hold me in your arms
Hold me in your arms

The Sheila's - (I'm So) Happy Happy/Love In The First Degree

I love Sheilas. I think they are great and their song produced by S.A.W. is simply a pure Pop S.A.W. songs and the last songs the trio produced together. I really enjoyed it. Unfortunately the girls didn't reach high positions in the Uk charts. I think one of the reasons is the video shot inside a room and not outside. I'd prefer, sun, sky, sea, and so on for a song happy, happy, happy like that!

Showbuzz meets the Sheilas

Ultimate Kaos - Casanova

24 - Ultimate Kaos Casanova Mar 1997
29 - Ultimate Kaos Casanova (re-issue) Jul 1998

This hit produced by Stock-Aitken reached only #24 and #29 positions on Uk Charts.

I think Ultimate Kaos were absolutely great. They look like great Jackson 5

Lolly's songs

She was Lolly. She wasn't produced by Stock-Aitken-Waterman but from the Dufflebag Boys. She was one of the artist I prefer and also Rose & Foster were huge PWL and S.A.W. fans and also workerd with them. A nice step back in the past.

Lolly - Viva La Radio

Lolly - Big Boys Don't Cry

Unlike many of their contemporaries on this tour, Bananarama aren't reuniting - they've never really stopped working together. Well, two of them - Sara Dallin and Keren Woodward - anyway.

Siobhan Fahey hasn't been part of the set-up since 1989 and while her departure coincided with the beginning of the end of the hits, Dallin and Woodward carried on.

Thus far they have resisted jumping aboard the lucrative nostalgia wagon. So what's changed?

"It's quite difficult to get a whole tour together on our own," says Dallin, with refreshing honesty....

The devil you don't know

Scotland on Sunday - Edinburgh,Scotland,UK
...Take the X-Factor final for example. There was Kylie Minogue dressed in a lace bodysuit and singing 'Better The Devil You Know' with Leon Jackson. And there was Donovan singing 'Any Dream Will Do' with Stepford siblings Same Difference. It wouldn't have taken a genius to work out whose credibility would get a bigger boost from those performances....

Lee Evans about Steps

Lee Evans about Steps: “You shouldn’t rule out a Steps comeback,” said Lee, currently working on his band The Latch. “I know Four, I mean 5ive, are doing it, and we were the biggest pop act in the UK at the time, so why not."


“I’m not sure about a new career and new albums, but as for a tour or whatever, why not? I don’t think any of us would rule it out but it’d have to be right time. I’d love to do some of it as Steps was then and some of it as Steps moving on. Like an acoustic version of Steps or whatever.”
