Cover Friday: Oi Banner

- 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: Oi Banner.

This edition's cover is one of those: 'Kids de France' is entirely sung in French by Oi Banner. Released on October 6, 2016, it is featured on a split EP with another French punk band, You Stupid Woman.

Wilde World: Noël Cognac

- Kim Wilde's first records were written and produced by her father and brother, Marty and Ricky. The three of them have had a great influence on the music world, as this regular series 'Wilde World' shows. Since this series of blogs started, there have been many discoveries of songs written by Marty Wilde and Ronnie Scott. Together they were a very prolific songwriting team, with their songs ending up in all corners of the world. This song, 'La fille que j'attends' ('The girl I'm waiting for') was recorded by Noël Cognac.
