At heart...

Lilium 'Stargazer' in the gardens at Dolores Delargo Towers #3

As the lilies fill the air with perfume, the heatwave continues here in the UK, and with August (birthday month for my sister and moi) just around the corner, it's time for another timeslip moment. As we take the TARDIS once again back to the heady days of 1984, from thirty years ago this week here's another (appropriate) jolly number to sing along to...

Featuring cameo appearances from the lovely Clare Grogan [she lives near us, you know!], Stratford Johns and Molly Weir, it's one-hit-wonders The Bluebells and the extremely cheerful Young At Heart!



  1. I have no re-collection of this song from the 80s, not even the original by Bananarama which I didn't hear until much, much later. The re-issue in the early 90s is quite a different story and I remember I quite liked it, despite not being exactly the kind of music I was into at the time.

    As for the weather, there has officially been no summer at all over here (so far I think there have been a grand total of two days of sunshine). Not that I mind really - I don't care much for sunshine, but there has been a lot of rain which has been a bit tiresome. I am currently on a holiday and it feels a little strange since I wake up in the morning and start the day by turning on all the lights! But hey, a time off is always very welcomed, no matter the weather!

    1. I learn something new every day - I had absolutely no idea this was a Bananarama song!


      PS Holidays are A GOOD THING - regardless of the weather. Enjoy!

  2. "Young At Heart" is from their debut album and written by the girls as well as Robert Hodgens from The Bluebells. That version is quite different.
