Brigitte Bardot of Rock


Titlul nu e ideea mea… 🙂


Kim Wilde (born Kim Smith, 18 November 1960 in Chiswick, West London) is an English pop singer.

Wilde burst onto the music scene in 1981 with the new wave classic „Kids in America”, which hit number two in the UK Singles Chart. Major U.S. success eluded her until 1987, when she topped the charts with her version of The Supremes’ hit „You Keep Me Hangin’ On”.

Since 1998, Wilde had an alternative career as a gardener, whilst still being active in music

Kim Smith was born in November 1960, the first child of 1950s rock ‘n’ roller Marty Wilde (real name Reginald Smith) and Joyce Baker, formerly of the British singing and dancing group The Vernons Girls.

As a child, she attended Oakfield Preparatory School, Dulwich. She moved with her family to Hertfordshire at the age of nine, where she was educated at Tewin School and later Presdales School, Ware, before completing a foundation course at St Albans College of Art & Design in 1980.


Wilde released her debut single „Kids in America” in January 1981. It was an instant success, reaching number two in the UK Singles Chart and scaling the Top 5 in other territories such as Germany, France and Australia.

Si inca un pic… sa va trezesc interesul despre ceva… „retro” 😀

Kim Wilde holds the record for being the most-charted British solo female act of the 1980s.

In France, she was known as the „Brigitte Bardot of Rock” and her song „Cambodia” sold over a million copies.

  1. PAULEEE! Ce mi-ai făcut, criminalule?! :mrgreen: Foarte mişto postarea ta, dar din cauza ta a trebuit să nu mai plec unde aveam de plecat, pentru că mi-ai blocat – mult timp – computerul, până s-a încărcat toată marfa. Noroc că nu era business, că te puneam să scoţi compensaţii. 🙂 De fapt, eu sunt de vină, iniţial mi-am propus să vin la tine după ce revin. Aşa-mi trebuie! 🙂
