The Beautiful South
Top 15

BSA.jpg


The Beautiful South were an English pop group formed in 1988 by Paul Heaton and Dave Hemingway, two former members of the Hull group the Housemartins, both of whom performed lead and backing vocals.

After the band's first album (recorded as a quintet), they were joined by a succession of female vocalists, all of whom performed lead and backing vocals alongside Heaton and Hemingway – Briana Corrigan for albums two and three after appearing as a guest vocalist on one, followed by Jacqui Abbott for the fourth to seventh albums, and finally Alison Wheeler for the final three Beautiful South albums

The group broke up in January 2007, claiming the split was due to "musical similarities", and has sold around 15 million records worldwide.

That's so true of this band, they created the perfect pop song in every hit and it was hard to limit it to 15 songs for me too.

Great idea!

1. Starman - Milky Edwards & The Chamberlings
A fake 60's soul version, created by the uploader himself - but the music is real, and I think it's the most creative Bowie cover I've ever heard.

2. Rock 'N' Roll Suicide - Black Box Recorder
Perfect tune for a romantic slow-dance.

3. Heroes - U-Traxx
Seriously pumped up, the way I like it.

4. The Man Who Sold The World - Boys Of A New Age
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8SkTsikFM0c
I don't care if people hate it, I love it.

5. Let's Dance - E-Male
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0b1gMB-bgD0

7. Rebel Rebel - International Chrysis
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BeFoIcedHKs

7. Kooks - Danny Wilson
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rILCBWI0kTk

8. Teenage Wildlife - Ash
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AqyhaAbMXMs

9. Star Medley With Starman - Claudio Mingardi
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e5-xilr-HM4

10. China Girl - Moogue

These are the same. The CD single (International Chrysis) was released in 1994 and in 1995 Dead Or Alive put in on their Nukleopatra album.


Oh... I have that album, but I also have some rather strange but vague memory of discussing this, was it with you?
