Yeah, I know just last week I highlighted a female 80s girl group, The Bangles, but I realized that we're a few weeks into summer and not once have I heard "Cruel Summer" on the radio. Criminal! Believe it or not, Bananarama is still active today - as a duo. Two of the original members, Keren Woodward and Sara Dallin, still perform. But the group enjoyed its greatest success in the 80s when a third member, Siobhan Fahey, was with them. One of these cute ladies was married to Dave Stewart of The Eurythmics, I believe - although I don't remember which one.
I loved this comment about them that I saw on YouTube: "Young people will notice how the girls are all fully clothed- this is because back then the music was better and we didn't need to be distracted with bare flesh. Oh yeah - these 3 girls are all cuter than the sluts around now as well"
Ha ha! So true...I agree. Here's the fun "Cruel Summer" video, and another lost hit, "I Heard A Rumor":
