Making your mind up - Bucks Fizz

Bucks Fizz may have been the most memorable act to have won the Eurovision Song Contest for the UK. Their song 'Making your mind up' won in 1981, mostly thanks to the choreography which involved ripping off the skirts of the two female members (Jay Aston and Cheryl Baker) by the two male members of the group (Bobby G and Mike Nolan), revealing shorter skirts. Receiving a less favourable response was the group's vocal abilities, since they sang most of the song off-key during the night.

The single was a number 1 hit in the UK and the Netherlands. The lyrics of the song are largely meaningless, although it can be argued that they are about making the decision to commit to a serious relationship.

My collection: 7" single no. 2089
Found: Disco Market, Den Haag, March 30, 1994
Cost: 1 guilder
Tracks: 'Making your mind up' / 'Don't stop'

  1. Can I ask which country this version of Making Your Mind Up is from, as I have tried for years to get a UK version with a pic sleeve, but can't find one, so maybe it was never done with one in the UK.
