Hard to think how long ago this was! This week in 1981, Kim Wilde had a Number Two hit in the UK with Kids In America - which is as good an excuse as any for playing this video!
But why didn't she make Number One? Well, she was kept off first by Shaking Stevens (This Ole House) and then by Bucks Fizz (Making Your Mind Up). Heck, there was so many good pop songs back in those days!
