Kim is leader of the pack!

Watch out, fellas… the girls are taking the charts by storm. Just listen to Kim Wilde, who has shot up to No. 2 with You Keep Me Hangin’ On. She says: ‘There are several girl singers making a name for themselves in a big way. And it’s not before time. The competition is really great, and keeps us all on our toes.’

Keeping Kim company are stunning singer Terri Nunn topping the charts with Berlin, all-girl group The Bangles celebrating their fourth chart hit with Walk Like An Egyptian, and sisters Mel and Kim, who are Showing Out at No. 4.

Kate Bush is at No. 23 with her own single Experiment IV and at No. 9 with Peter Gabriel. Cyndi Lauper is back in the charts with True Colors, and Corinne Drewery is fronting Swing Out Sister at No. 5 with Breakout.
