A little time - Beautiful South

Kim Wilde has been presenting her radio show 'Secret songs' for two years now, and being a regular listener, this is one of the songs I picked up on recently. It was apparently a number 1 hit in the UK, when it was released as a single from their 1990 album 'Choke'.

The song features lead vocals by Paul Heaton and Irish vocalist Briana Corrigan. It is described as a 'subversive duet'.

My collection: 7" single no. 4975
Found: Empire Records, Den Haag, December 3, 2010
Cost: 0,5 euro
Tracks: 'A little time' / 'In other words I hate you'

Song for whoever - The Beautiful South

The Beautiful South formed in 1989 when Paul Heaton and Dave Hemingway left their band the Housemartins. They were joined by Sean Welch, Dave Stead and Dave Rotheray. On the band's debut album 'Welcome to the Beautiful South', Briana Corrigan was featured as a background vocalist.

Their debut single 'Song for whoever' was sung from the point of view of a cynical songwriter who romances women solely to get material for his love songs. The single reached number 2 in the UK singles chart and number 17 in the Dutch Top 40.

My collection: 7" single no. 968
Found: Free Record Shop, Den Haag, August 19, 1989
Cost: 6 guilders
Tracks: 'Song for whoever' / 'Straight in at 37'
