    I think "Land of Make Believe" is a fabulous song. I'm too young to remember this band when they came out, but I discovered this song recently on a compilation CD I bought. I loved it immediately.

    My mate is a sales rep and frequently rings me up from Northern show bar/hotels were the Brotherhood of Man and Bucks Fizz are performing! Bucks Fizz are now two seperate bands; one contains Bobby G and the other is Mike, Cheryl and Shelley. I always liked the song 'New Beginning' myself.

    yep! I was mad on Bucks Fizz! my fav being Bobby Gee, had all their records, posters, paper cuttings from when they won the Eurovision. My Friends and I used to do all their dance routines in the playground at school. Oh the days!!! Saw them in concert just the once when they came to Nottingham concert hall in 1984. Great memories. Still have some songs on my PC, which I always put on at partys/BBQ's.

    I bought My Camera never Lies and got a huge poster with it. It stayed on my wall for years! I loved Jay Aston! Bucks Fizz ended for me when she left in 1985. Glad to see shes making a come back!

    At 30 years of age, I am still more than happy to chill out listening to some Bucks Fizz. It had been a while since I'd listened to them until recently when 4 of their albums were released on CD. Saw them in concert twice (84,85, both with Shelley). Also have their video collection. Most people I know only remember Bucks Fizz for Making Your Mind Up & The Land of Make Believe, which for me are two of their worst. Fantastic group that should have been more appreciated. Pretty sure they're still going today (playing bingo halls etc...) but with only one original member (actually 2 bucks fizz's - one with bobby g and the other with mike nolan and Dollar's David Van Day), but as a fan of the original (and shelly)Fizz, I refuse to accept them as anything more than a tribute ban!

    I thought they were the best band that in the world, ever when i was 12!I brought every sort of Bucks Fizz merchendise, and brought all their records.I still have the Land of make believe single where you got a pull out poster and there was a piece of art work on it.I found it fairly recently, and it looks newer than it did when i brought it over 20 years ago!

    I went to see them in concert when they came to the Birchwood Arena many moons ago. That was before Jay left & the coach crash. I have some of their records. 'Cant stand the heat', 'Talking in your sleep','I hear talk.
