Kim Wilde on 'Now Yearbook 86'

- Now That's What I Call Music started in the early 1980's as a great series of compilation albums featuring the biggest hits of that time. In 2021, they started releasing 'Yearbook' editions. They have released versions for the first half of the Eighties, and now they are releasing a 1986-themed edition. As you would expect, Kim's American number 1 hit 'You Keep Me Hangin' On' makes an appearance on this edition. Coupled with 79 other big hits (and a selection of 42 on the 3 LP version), this is a great collection of hits from a big year in pop. The 4CD set is available as a hardcover casebound book set, and as a slightly cheaper non-deluxe set. A three LP version on purple translucent vinyl is also available.

Kim Wilde newsletter is back

- In 2021 and 2022, Wilde Life had a weekly newsletter via the Twitter-related service Revue. Now that Revue is ceasing operations later this month, the newsletter was in danger. Thankfully, a new and improved host service has been found in the guise of Substack. You can read the first issue of the new Wilde Life: Kim Wilde Newsletter online. This is also where you can subscribe to receive regular newsletters in your mailbox. What's more, you can also read the newsletters in the handy Substack app, which is available for Android and Apple. It's the quickest way to keep up-to-date with all things Wilde, on this website and on other websites.

New on Wilde Life: Kim Wilde's London

- Today sees the launch of 'Kim Wilde's London', an interactive map of London with important landmarks associated with Kim Wilde. Starting with her birth in Chiswick, via the RAK studios and the places where she recorded TV performances and videos, to her gardening exploits: all of the important places in the capital of the UK are marked and illustrated with photos and videos. The map will continue to grow as we add more points of interest throughout this year. Of course, you can get involved too: if you are missing any locations on the map, you can contact us and we will add these locations as quickly as possible.

Happy 2023 from Wilde Life!

- As we look back, we realize that 2020, 2021 and 2022 were marked by the Covid-19 pandemic. That seems to be part of the past in most of the world, and for most of 2022 we have been lucky to witness a slow revival of the "old world", with live performances back in our lives.
