Lyrics for Birthday :

(Ricky Wilde/Scarlett Wilde/Shane Lee)

Monday begins,
Before you know it Friday’s ending,
Your feeling that your life is passing you by, wo oh..
What is there for you, aside from all the things that haunt you?
You’re feeling that you’re running out of time.. your time.
So dance like it’s your Birthday,
You gotta dance and we will follow,
It’s your night take the spotlight,
Scream like the world is yours.
You gotta jump like it’s your Birthday,
You gotta shout like there’s no tomorrow,
This is now,
Gotta show ‘em how to party the night is yours,
It’s your Birthday now wow wow wow..
So let the celebrations begin,
Feel the liberation within,
It’s your time to shine..
‘Cos if you let the rhythm take you,
To the place they’ll never break you,
You’ll learn to love the life living in the fast lane, once again.
Use this time to figure out,
What this life’s all about,
Make tonight a night to remember..
It’s your Birthday now…
Oooh yeah the night is yours..
It’s your Birthday!!

“Louder than war” Interview (UK-Tuesday 1st may 2018) :

Kim Wilde: “Here Come The Aliens”

(by Eileen Shapiro)

louderwar

Kim Wilde, who holds the record for being the most charted solo female act of the 80’s, with seventeen UK Top 40 hit singles including her debut single, “Kids In America” has recently released her newest smash hit album, “Here Come The Aliens”. The release was inspired after having an encounter with a UFO in 2009, while sitting in her garden. She noticed a huge bright light behind a cloud, followed its source, and realized that the light was moving swiftly back and forth. She thought about it every day and it gave her the inspiration for the album.

 

The album is causing a massive worldwide buzz with hits including her fabulous single, “Kandy Krush”, an energetic dance tune that is taking over the planet. Aside from all of her prior hits including: “Kids In America”, You Keep Me Hangin’ On” and “Cambodia”, Kim has won numerous awards, such as the Brit Awards, has written books on gardening, and is a TV presenter. She has sold over 10 million albums, and 20 million singles. She has just completed a massive UK tour and will be doing a number of festivals before she embarks on an enormous European tour in October. I shared questions and answers with her about her new release and was thrilled that she talked about Adam Ant during the interview….

Louder than War: Congrats on Kandy Krush it’s a fabulous new single…is it inspired by the game? The title was a phrase that was everywhere on the tour bus when I was working on the song. A lot of the band were busy with their heads in their phones playing the game, so we thought it was a great way to tap into that phrase and flip it into something else.

You’ve done everything from music to TV, to DJing to gardening. Is there anything that you haven’t done that you still wish to accomplish? I’ve written books about gardening, but I reckon there’s another book in me…maybe about the music business – we’ll have to wait and see. I’m probably going to be too busy for a while to do anything about it.

Was there an instance that changed the trajectory of your entire life? Yes! In 2009 my husband and a friend of mine witnessed 2 incredible lights in the sky over Welwyn Garden City. There were many other witnesses locally and it made the Hatfield and Welwyn Times. It inspired the artwork of my new album ‘Here Come The Aliens’ as well as the first track on the album called ‘1969’ – you could also say that it changed the trajectory of my life as without that event, the new album, tour and radio play wouldn’t have happened!

If you could have your ultimate stage fantasy what would you need to happen? It’s happening right now! I’ve always wanted to have 2 drummers in my band since I saw Adam & The Ants have 2 drummers back in the eighties. Combined with my new found love of ‘space-age’ stage wear, I can honestly say that I’m living out my stage fantasies in 2018!

Is there a song on your new release that you’re most proud of, or that you like performing best? I’m proud of the whole album and I love performing all of the new songs live, but 1969 is a real moment in the show that sums up the tour. That said, seeing the audience’s reaction to ‘Pop Don’t Stop’ live is truly humbling – it’s so amazing to have a new song get the kind of reaction we’re used to seeing for the older hits.

Is there any advice that you would give to your younger self-knowing everything you know now? Always trust your instincts and don’t throw away your Doc Martin boots.

What’s the proudest moment in your career? There have been many, but hearing my new songs on the radio again this year has been very special. It’s a tough industry and audiences often have short memories, but to discover there’s still people who want to buy my records has made me very proud and thankful.

What’s next for you? We’ve just finished a big UK Tour – the first for 30 years, but there’s no rest just yet… we’re doing a number of festivals over the summer before setting off on our European Tour at the beginning of October.
