Kim Wilde has released many songs during her career. Some of them have been covered by other artists. On Cover Friday, Wilde Life presents cover versions of Kim Wilde songs. This week: Lucie Vondrácková.

As far as we know, there's only one cover of Kim Wilde's 'Never trust a stranger' in a different language, and that's Lucie Vondrácková's 'Stuj'. Born as Lucie Plekancová Vondrácková in Prague (Czechoslovakia), she is a popular singer and respected theatre and film actress in that country, now the Czech Republic. She studied music and drama at the Prague Conservatory, and completed the course of Cultural studies, with a Master of Arts degree. She earned the degree of Doctor of Philosophy in 2006 at Charles University in Prague.

Her debut album 'Marmeláda' was released in 1993. In the next two decades, nine more albums followed. In 2013, she released 'Ohen', which contains the song 'Stuj'. The song actually came with a music video, which you can see below.
