With filmed commentaries on the songs by Tony Anstis, Coronation Street’s Lucy-Jo Hudson, Kim Wilde, David and Carrie Grant, Gareth Gates, Holly Willoughby, Leigh Francis as Keith Lemon, Lorraine Kelly, Pete Waterman, Toyah Wilcox and Konnie Huq.

Kim Wilde quotes:

‘Staying alive’ (Bee Gees)
…melodies that stick in your head…

‘Waiting for a star to fall’ (Boy meets girl)
I don’t mind what I sing now, because I never feel guilty about my guilty pleasures.

‘Yes sir I can boogie’ (Baccara)
It’s a totally different kind of boogie. It’s a sort of horizontal boogie.

‘Islands in the stream’ (Dolly Parton & Kenny Rogers)
Darling, we’re islands in the stream. Sort your head out.
