Sisters in art

But not just that! Mel and Kim were real sisters, even if one used to say her family name, Appleby, while the other just used her nickname.

He definitely was one of those performers whose impact was so much bigger than the quality of his songs, even though “Youthquake” was a great album.

Carly Simon – Coming around again

In all my romantic compilations (I might have reached a thousand) there’s always an ageless song. One of those songs that has always existed, it was always in our hearts. “Coming around again” really revamped Carly Simon’s career! I think this is a fantastic song,

There’s always someone there

In Wonderland. The first was of course Alice, with all of Lewis Carroll’s mad characters, then some othere characters; but exactly 30 years ago in Wonderland there was also the great Paul Young!
