I would like to mention someone who has created a fantastic site, for one of their personal idols. She has proved what can be achieved, if you show great devotion, for the one, who has touched your heart. Kristy (yes, that is Kristy, no Kirsty!) from the Netherlands, has created a homage to her idol, Michelle Heaton, from the band, Liberty X. I have added her site’s link to my links page, but I feel she deserves an ‘official’ plug, via my blog. Michelle Heaton Online or MHO as it is referred to is one of the best ‘fan’ sites I have seen out there on the web. I would like to wish her every success with the website, her dreams and aspirations. You will come to the UK one day and see Liberty X. Like many of the British population, yesterday evening, I settled down in front of the sofa to watch, Only Fools and Horses: Miami Twice. I needed a break. I needed some food. I know, I had seen the episode several times, since it’s original airing, in Christmas 1991. The scene that captured my attention and imagination, was when the brothers are about to enter the night club. It was not so much the comedy that was being played out on the screen, but rather the music. The music streaming from the club sounded yet again so familiar, but it was just beyond my memory, in terms of placing a name to those angelic words, sung by such a sweet voice. “Baby, Baby”, was all that I could remember as the comedy episode came to a close. I rushed onto my computer and opened up Google. I didn’t know what to search for, but attempting to complete a line of the song, proved unsuccessful. I then just entered in “Baby Baby”. Instant response. Amy Grant. The song had been number one in the US, and number 2 in the UK in April 1991. Downloading the song, and hearing that almost 80s electronic introduction, took me back those 12 years. How could such a classic 90s song be lost, for so long? I hadn’t heard it on the radio or seen it on any episodes of TOTP2. I will, of course, keep you posted with my progress. What makes things slightly stranger, is the fact that her better know hit, is the cover of the Joni Mitchell’s “Big Yellow Taxi”.
Baby, baby
I’m taken with the notion
To love you with the sweetest of devotion.
Baby, baby
My tender love will flow from
The bluest sky to the deepest ocean.
Stop for a minute
Baby, I’m so glad you’re mine, yeah
You’re mine.
