It all sounds very interesting. I suppose it would be well worth the price of admission. More's the pity that I can't teleport to England.

Furthermore, do you intend to film any scenes and post the clips on the internet, such as YouTube?

It's a dead simple song. Without any cheating at all, my memory says:

When will I will I be famous?

Yes your suitably at one with your body and the sun
(yes you are)
You've read Karl Marx and you've taught yourself to dance
(You're the best by far)
But you keep asking the question
The one you're not supposed to mention

When will I will I be famous?
(I can't answer I can't answer that)
When will I see my picture in the papers?
(I can't answer I can't answer that)
And I can't tell you when
You'll see your name up in lights

You're a slave to fashion and your life is full of passion
(It's the way you are)
You suffered for your art with the jogging in the park
(You know you should go far)
But you keep asking the question
The one your not supposed to mention

When will I will I be famous?
(I can't answer I can't answer that)
When will I see my picture in the papers?
(I can't answer I can't answer that)
And I can't tell you when
You'll see your name up in lights

You won't suffer in silence
You're a talent you know that I noticed
You'd like to be a legend
A big star overnight
(Tell me when)
I can't answer your question
It's driving me insane
And your impossible impatience
Tearing at my brain

When will I will I be famous?

When will I will I be famous?
(I can't answer I can't answer that)
When will I see my picture in the papers?
(I can't answer I can't answer that)
And I can't tell you when
You'll see your name up in lights

Etc.

I did all of that from memory. I'm so ashamed. Somebody shoot me!

Hang on, you were around in the eighties, surely if at any time someone says to you "When will I... will I" the entire song autoplays in your brain? It's like a DISEASE! I've never forgotten it.

Pop trivia: The line "When Will I be Famous?" isn't sung by Bros. It's sung by a female vocalist.

I have been asked to write something for the programme..... this is what I came up with....

My memories of the 80’s


Turquoise, Pink, yellow, peach, day glo towelling socks (odd of course), Bermuda shorts, pixie boots, Fergie bows. Pretending to be Stephanie from Degrassi Junior High, by taking my spotty leggings and matching tie up t-shirt to school, to change in to in the loos. Wanting to be the ‘Famous 5’ and creating rubbish adventures with the twins down the road (we sometimes pretended to be triplets).
Watching ‘The box of delights’ on a cold winters evening. Making up dance routines to Kylie and Jason. Getting not one but TWO care bears for Christmas. The whole playground bouncing on LoLo balls. Wanting to look like Rosanna Arquette, in the poster for desperately seeking Susan and going in to ‘Woollies’ to look at the record cover for in to the groove, which sported the same picture. Getting ‘proper’ summers. Seeing the punks around town and making Mohawks using shampoo in the bath.
Eating golden syrup sandwiches on the front lawn before going roller booting. Telling everyone that you would ‘be their best friend’ if they did what you wanted. Skipping, playing elastic (laggy). Trying to be Mel and Kim. Learning to play the recorder. Thinking Allo Allo and Duty Free were hilarious. Becoming an Auntie at 8 years old. Thinking that Magnum P.I and Kevin Webster were handsome and wanting to marry a man with a moustache when I grew up (I don’t now).
Thinking that a £1 coin cello taped in your birthday card was loads of money. Loadsa money (wap your wad on the counter). Believing in Father Christmas and the tooth fairy. Thinking that if you ate ‘ready brek’ you would ACTUALLY get an orange glow. Wanting to be American or from London (so you could be in Grange Hill). Seeing Care Bears the movie at a cinema where there was an interval. Loving 5 star and Sonia. Trying to stay up as late as possible. Going to the discos at the Methodist Church hall (50p entry), Brownies, disco dancing, wanting to join Girls Brigade, and thinking that my big sister was the coolest.

These are just a few recollections I have from the 80’s. A decade, which holds so many amazing memories for me. A decade, which fills me with a glorious sense of nostalgia and childhood magic. I spent most of the 80’s playing outside when it was still safe for kids to do so, as long as you were home before it got dark. This was a time, where I didn’t have to worry about anything except whether my best friend was ‘going off with someone else’. It was a great time. I hope we have done a good job of recreating some of its wonder.

Very well, then. Thank you for answering my question.

Earth Angel, I'm going to have to slice up your lovely post...

quote:
Turquoise, Pink, yellow, peach, day glo towelling socks (odd of course)
Day-glo towelling socks and day-glo fingerless gloves! Ah, the memories!

quote:
Wanting to be the ‘Famous 5’ and creating rubbish adventures with the twins down the road (we sometimes pretended to be triplets).
The Famous Five, or as I like to call them 'The Goonies':

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZPkh0lxFOhE

quote:
Watching ‘The box of delights’ on a cold winters evening.
Yessssss! The effects look really really bad now, but at the time it was the best thing ever! Sooooo Christmassy!

quote:
Getting ‘proper’ summers.
That's our memories deceiving us!

quote:
Telling everyone that you would ‘be their best friend’ if they did what you wanted.
I'll be your best friend forever if you let me wear your pink and yellow fingerless gloves this lunchtime!

quote:
Learning to play the recorder.
In my case; not trying hard and giving up within days.

quote:
Thinking Allo Allo and Duty Free were hilarious.
'Allo Allo' was hilarious... for about two episodes, until the repetition wore thin. 'Duty Free' was never hilarious. Just strangely depressing.

quote:
Becoming an Auntie at 8 years old.
Uncle at 13 for me.

quote:
Thinking that Magnum P.I and Kevin Webster were handsome and wanting to marry a man with a moustache when I grew up (I don’t now).
Come on, if Tom Selleck in his prime made you an offer, you wouldn't try and love the 'tache?!

quote:
Thinking that a £1 coin cello taped in your birthday card was loads of money.
£1 notes! You could have £3 and feel like you were rich!

quote:
Believing in Father Christmas and the tooth fairy.
Never ever.

quote:
Thinking that if you ate ‘ready brek’ you would ACTUALLY get an orange glow.
You don't?!

quote:
Loving 5 star and Sonia.
I used to argue with my friend that 'Madonna' was better than 'Five Star'! As for PWL... I find it hard to openly embrace my memories of their stuff, because I would later come to regard them as the death of pop music in the UK with their 'Hit Factory' mentality, which resulted in an overkill that created the space for all the awful faceless dance music that took over in the early 90's. Rant rant moan moan.

quote:
Trying to stay up as late as possible.
Succeeding! For the last two years of school I was never in bed before two! As a result, I was always half asleep at school and did badly in exams! The reason? ITV's new late-night lineup (featuring a presenter)... 'Late Night Late'! It had the best shows on TV!

If it's half as good as this post you'll be onto a winner! I *demand* that you post this in the 'Memories of Growing Up' thread! Ok, I don't, I *request* that you post it there. But I do it while wearing a big 'tache - get the picture?

quote:
There WILL be crying. You are allowed to laugh.
This can go on forever...

There WILL be laughing. You are allowed to join in.

Haha...Tom Selleck NOW would still get a look in. Thanks Logan, I'm glad you liked it. I reckon yours would be the boy version of this....wanting castle grey skull for christmas, wanting to be the fall guy, playing top trumps on school trips, swapping stickers in the playground (got got got NEED). I bloody love the 80's.
