Browsing through YouTube videos and I'd forgotten all about this incident where - bucks fizz were involved in an horrific bus crash - https://youtu.be/jCs3Y4GewUY way back in 1984,how any of them managed to survive that is anyone's guess!

Anyone else remember this?

OK there songs might have been a bit cheesy but they were fun!

I am not familiar with bucks fizz but my first thought when I saw your pic was, that looks like a Saturday Night Live skit. The guy on the right looks like Jimmy Fallon

LOL that PIC j2me,they were actually sometimes branded as a second rate - ABBA but i liked them and at the time they had a lot of hits and as cheesy as most of them were like I mentioned earlier the majority of them were very catchy and also a lot of fun!

Although i watched every Eurovision song contest when i was a kid, i can´t really remember hearing Bucks Fizz´ winning song Making Your Mind Up.

However, few years ago i heard their tune Run for Your Life and loved it! The high tech sound and the melodies in this one are simply awesome https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qA3sSviMkjg

I also bought their second and third albums (Are you Ready and Hand Cut) on lp.

They were put together by a management team, and didn't write or play on any of their songs. For that reason they had no credibility and were more or less targeted at the pre-teen (kid) market who only care about catchy tunes.

Having said that, I always rather liked them, and their team gave them some genuinely good songs.

Stone-cold camp 80's pop classic:

Odd choice for a single in '82:

Their version of a song that was a hit in the US for the Romantics:

'Maturing':

Their version of a song that later became a hit for Cher:

I love Bucks Fizz! My parents had the chance to see them in concert during the 1980's. My favorite's by them are, "The Land Of Make Believe" and "Making Your Mind Up" [Smile]
