  • Sweet Secrets
    It was 1985 and my sister and I had 2 Sweet Secrets between us: a panda with a yellow gem and a girl with a purple or blue gem. I remember, I forced the gem out of my panda and was so disappointed to find that it wasn't a real jewel after all: just a piece of plastic with a shiny piece of coloured foil behind it to give it its "sparkle!" I treated a lot of my toys badly when I was a kid, hence my nostalgia-driven collecting now!!!
  • Charles and Eddie
    You have to be an Aussie chick to know this, but Southern Sons had more and LONGER hair than Eddie! "Would I Lie to You" is a great little song, very upbeat and playful.
  • Bryan Adams
    My sister had a real thing for this guy after watching Kevin Costner's "Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves" and especially after watching the music video for "Everything I Do (I Do It For You)." I have to admit, he wasn't all that bad on the album, "Waking up the Neighbors," though there were some songs (ie "Vanishing") during which you'd want to give the guy a throat lozenge or something: his voice was SO raspy and grating, like he was going to lose it before the end of the song!
  • Boyz II Men
    'End of the Road' was the worst break-up song of my youth! 'Coolyhighharmony' was a good album, even though I really only got it for that one song! It took me some time (and a lot of perseverance!) to appreciate that tape ... but only because by then, I'd listened to everything in my small collection about a 100 times over.
  • Bell Biv Devoe
    My favourite BBD song is "Gangsta Boogie." I still listen to this occasionally on my iPod Shuffle! I remember, the music video for this song was pretty cool!
  • Belinda Carlisle
    I thought Belinda Carlisle was the most beautiful redhead I'd ever seen on a tape cassette cover (and I only had Tiffany to compare her to!)! 'Runaway Horses' is a beautiful, uplifting album that featured Bryan Adams on one song ('We Want the Same Thing') and Belinda's own song-writing on another ('Shades of Michaelangelo'). I don't have a very good voice, but for some reason I could sing along to Belinda, Tiffany, Bangles, Paula Adbul and Kylie Minogue - ie singers with very "thin" voices layered over with that 80s electronic sheen!
  • Bananarama
    I listen to WOW! and instantly, I'm 12 again, sitting in my old bedroom with my old pink double-deck tape recorder / player!
