Wow, that was sad. Really awkward. Look at those dudes' faces.

The fact she sounded like a farking drunkard slurring those words and not-hitting those notes didn't help. At all.

Man, time is an asshole. Doesn't forgive.

The other passengers didn't seem too happy but screw 'em. If that doesn't make you smile you're no fun.

She's got Bette Davis eyes.

Some of her recent (recorded) music is quite good. She did a covers album a couple of years ago with a great version of my girl Kirsty MacColl's "They Don't Know".

That said, maybe she should lay off the impromtu live performances until further notice.

She's actually now a well-respected horticulturalist. No, really

Stantz: She's actually now a well-respected horticulturalist. No, really


Guess this goes to show, you can lead a horticulture, but you can't make her think.

/not obscure

Echoing the 'sad' sentiment. Even if she weren't drunk and on a subway car, she's older than I am, and that's just not a song for an post-middle-age woman to be singing. Hope she's doing better than she appears to be doing - I liked the song many, many moons ago, and still do.

/Would've joined in on the chorus anyway, 'cause I'm on the subway with Kim Wilde and fark those haters.

Somebody probably told her, "Hey, this is how you make a viral video. Sing a song in a public place, make sure the audience can't go anywhere."

I think the super heavy blue eye shadow pic, and the last pic, are the only really bad ones.

Never do this.

Speaking as a Londoner, I can tell you that there are many simple unwritten rules when riding public transport. Things you can and can not do. Drunk and loud is quite high on the not do list.

In fact, aside from quietly and politely asking someone to pass you a stray newspaper, quietly and politely asking if anyone could translate the garbled noises the driver just mumbled over the tannoy or quietly and politely asking directions if you are very lost and worried, it's best to stay completely silent.

How about eye contact? On the NYC subway making eye contact on the subway is a sign of aggression.

1) A bit past her prime.
2) Who cares? She had fun. It would have been a bit better if it was in a Pub.

So I guess Dahnkster's message is he hopes he dies before he gets old. Proceed as planned, Dahnkster?

Don't make eye contact. It probably won't be seen as aggression but it will be at best invasive and quite likely creepy. I expect that most very large cities will be much the same. People live in the midst of constant crowds so we all learn to give each other as much personal space and semblance of privacy as possible.

I loved Kim Wilde in the 80s and early 90s, but this was bad.

She's on the German version of the "The Voice" casting show which seems to run permanently whenever I'm in the gym, and she looks borderline anorexic. But hey, at least she seems to shave nowadays.

Kim Wilde was absolutely fap-tastic in the 80's. Much of the Whipping-seed was spilt because of her.
Let's see how she's holding up now...

Oh dear.
 
2012-12-15 11:54:14 AM  
Nice to see she restored the lyrics about suburbia sprawling that had been removed from later versions of the song because it wasn't considered marketable to say anything negative about the suburbs.

/You keep me hanging on... because otherwise I'll fall down when the train comes to a sudden stop

Why do women think it's okay once again to wear blue eyeshadow?

If she has any acting ability, she could go the Jessica Lange route.

Starts out at "Fist of God" , slowing segueing into "Meh" and then winding up at "Do...Not...Want."

Time really is a biatch, isn't it? (as the Boobieser noted..)

Off by a few years.

She recorded this version with Wilde in 2002 and it was released in 2003.
