Daily Boom 80's Throwback: Bananarama - 'I Heard A Rumour'

Bananarama

"Who needs friends who never show
I'll tell you what you want to know
I could have saved a broken heart
If I'd found out long ago

I'm just thinking about
Those lonely nights
When I waited for your call
'Til I found out
All my friends were right, ooh, ooh
I didn't know you at all

I heard a rumour
Ooh, ooh, I heard a rumour
They say you got a broken heart"

How can you not love Bananarama? If you go back and watch their earliest videos you'll quickly realize that this trio never really took themselves very seriously. Sure, they were invested in their version of pop but they were silly. They had real fun, the kind that you just don't see in videos these days. Fifth Harmony is too busy sexing it up to even consider sharing a silly moment on camera. That's kind of sad because women that are friends and that have a real connection, are goofballs at times. That's real life.

So, Sara Dallin, Siobhan Fahey and Keren Woodward not only were friends thirty years ago, but they remain connected to this day. A few months back the ladies announced a return to touring and performing together as Bananarama. They have dates scheduled in the U.K. through the end of 2017 and (fingers crossed) hopefully they'll be hitting the states next year. 

"I Heard a Rumour" was released in June of 1987 and hit number 4 on Billboard's Hot 100. It was part of the Disorderlies soundtrack and one of my very favorite songs by Bananarama. Check out the video below!
