What are you listening to right now?

This morning, I switched on the TV, and a scruffy looking guy and a really hot girl were being interviewed on the BBC Breakfast news about a film they were in. I was just about to turn over, when the girl started talking, and she had a very broad Irish accent. Obviously, I was curious to know who she was, and so stayed on BBC1 for the rest of the interview. But, although they put a name graphic up for the guy (James Purefoy), they didn't for her. Fortunately, at the end of the interview, the presenter told us who they were when saying goodbye.

Turns out it was Imelda May! 😲

She looks so different without her quiff! I would never have recognised her! :drama:

So, here is the song of her's that I probably know best:

Imedla May - "Kentish Town Waltz"

And here are a couple of songs from the film they were talking about:

The Fisherman's Friends featuring Imelda May - "Cornwall My Home"

The Fisherman's Friends featuring Imelda May - "Hi Ho Silver Lining"

Then, about half an hour later, I flicked back onto BBC1, and this time my first singing crush, Sonia Evans, was on. And I swear, she has barely aged at all in the past 30 years! :love: :love: :love:

She was on talking about Eurovision, because she is a former UK entry (1993 Runner-Up) and her home city (Liverpool) was one of the places waiting to find out if it had made the short list for hosting the 2023 contest (it did).

And by sheer coincidence, she was also a pointless answer for one of the questions in the final round of tonight's episode of "Pointless"! They were looking for acts which had a UK Top 40 single with either "stop", "look" or "listen" in the title, and Sonia was a pointless answer for the word "listen".

So, here is the song that earned her that honour:

Sonia - "Listen To Your Heart"

Suffice to say, I had picked Sonia as my answer. :biggrin:

@elektra blue - this post should be right up your street. Imelda AND a redhead!

when you think some things can't improve... :LOL: :LOL: :LOL: :LOL:
