Kim Wilde (born Kim Smith, 18 November 1960) is an English pop singer, author and television presenter who burst onto the music scene in 1981 with the number 2 UK Singles Chart New Wave classic “Kids in America”. In 1983, Wilde received the Brit Award for Best British Female. In 1987 she had a major hit in the US when her version of The Supremes’ classic “You Keep Me Hangin’ On” topped the charts. Starting in 1998, while still active in music, she has branched into an alternative career as a landscape gardener.
In 1988, Wilde released her biggest selling album to date,Close, which returned her to the UK top 10 and spent almost eight months on the UK album chart. It produced four major European hits: “Hey Mr.Heartache”, “You Came”, “Never Trust a Stranger” and “Four Letter Word”, (the last 3 were Top 10 hits in the UK). The release of the album coincided with a tour of Europe, where she was the opening act for Michael Jackson’s Bad World Tour.
The Shep Pettibone remix of “You Came” is widely available on various 80’s 12″ compilations, notably Blank & Jones So80s 6 but the US 12″ single also added two dub versions which have so far never seen release on CD.
