Bananarama are an English girl group who have had success on the pop and dance charts since 1982. Although there have been line-up changes during the years, the group enjoyed its most popular success as a trio, made up of lifelong friends Siobhan Fahey, Keren Woodward andSara Dallin.The group was founded in London in September 1979 by Fahey, Woodward and Dallin. Dallin and Woodward had been childhood friends in Bristol since the age of 4 and attended St. George's School for Girls together. The pair became a trio when Dallin met Fahey while studying fashion journalism.
"I Heard a Rumour" was their strongest performing international hit from this album. In the US the song was featured in the motion picture Disorderlies starring The Fat Boys and Ralph Bellamy. "Love in the First Degree" was one of their biggest UK hitsand the disco-oriented "I Can't Help It" (which boasted a semi-controversial video featuring the group in a milk bath filled with fruit and half-naked men) was a minor hit.
