You keep me hangin’on N°1 in the US charts (USA-Saturday 6th June 1987) :

keepme

At 6th June of 1987, Kim Wilde went to No.1 on the US singles chart with ‘You Keep Me Hanging On’. The song had been a 1966 hit for The Supremes.

The daughter of ’50s British pop singer Marty Wilde, Kim Wilde had several pop hits during the ’80s. Initially, her synth-driven pop fit in with the new wave movement, but as the decade progressed, it became clear that her strength was mainstream pop.

In 1980, Kim Wilde signed with producer Mickie Most’s Rak Records, releasing her first single, Kids in America, early in 1981. Kids in America climbed to number two on the British charts that spring, while her second single, Chequered Love made it into the Top Ten ; her self-titled debut album performed as well as her singles.

The following year, Kids in America became a Top 40 hit in America, while Select kept her in the British charts. However, Wilde wasn’t able to keep her momentum going and it wasn’t until late 1986 that she had another hit with a dance cover of the Supremes’ You Keep Me Hangin’ On which charted in the Top Ten on both sides of the Atlantic.

Kim Wilde never had another hit in America, yet she was back in the charts in the summer of 1987 with Another Step (Closer to You) a duet with Junior Giscombe. After the single’s success, she began changing her image, becoming sexier.

The approach didn’t entirely pay off, though she had a handful of hit singles from her 1988 album Close, including You Came, Never Trust a Stranger, and Four Letter Word. Kim Wilde continued to record in the ’90s, scoring the occasional hit, either in the dance or adult contemporary field. Read more : OldSchoolforlife

Kim Wilde’s 80s Top 10 : (comments by Kim wilde)

1)Spandau Ballet – To Cut a Long Story Short

Spandau-Ballet-To-Cut-A-Long-Sto-170595

“Spandau’s first release and my personal fave. I remember dancing to this at a local New Romantic Club called ‘Club For Heroes’ which was run by a couple of friends of mine and being inspired by its hypnotic energy and Tony’s epic vocals”.

2)Ultravox – Vienna

vienna

“Hands down one of the best records made during the 80’s. I have toured with Midge often, and always swoon when I hear this amazing song, it takes me straight back to that wonderful decade !”

3)Altered Images – I Could be Happy

altered

“I always loved this thoroughly British post punk/new wave band, especially the charismatic and very lovely Clare Grogan. This single was produced by the brilliant Martin Rushent (of Dare), and I still have it on vinyl”.

4)Visage – Fade to Grey

visage

“Released in late 1980, this record made a big impact on so many, inspiring other producers and artistes alike in sound and presentation. Steve is synonymous with the 80’s and I’m glad to say we became good friends”.

5)AC/DC – Back in Black

ACDC

“AC/DC; reminding us all that the 80’s weren’t all synths and shoulder pads. The mighty Rockers penned a Rock Anthem at the very beginning of the decade, and one that has never been beaten in my opinion”.

6)Human League – Love Action

humanleague

“This single from the iconic ‘Dare’ album came out shortly after ‘Kids in America’ in 1981. My brother, Ricky Wilde, was heavily influenced by their sound, which permeated through our own recordings as a result. I’m proud to say I’ve toured with them several times”.

7)The Smiths – How Soon is Now

smiths

“Released in 1985, at the time the legendary Sire Records chief, Seymour Stein, called it ‘the “Stairway to Heaven” of the 80’s’ ….and for good reason”.

8)Michael Jackson – Another Part of Me

MJ

“This was the 6th single to be released from ‘Bad’, and my fave from that album. Every time I hear it I’m reminded of touring with him in ’88 – an incredible 34 dates over 4 months. Life changing”.

9)New Order – Blue Monday

neworder

“Released in 1983, this incredibly influential record still sounds as cool and contemporary today as it did then”.

10)Pretenders – Brass in Pocket

pretenders

“This record came out in 1980 while I was at Art College, I still have the 45 vinyl. Chrissie Hynde is the coolest rock chick on the planet, and has written some outstanding songs throughout her career. She remains one of my biggest influences and inspirations”.
