Bananarama - Really Saying Something


On this date in 1982, Bananarama released their second single, "Really Saying Something". It was backed by "Give Us Back Our Cheap Fares". The A side was fron their debut album, Deep Sea Skiving. The B side was a non-LP track that was added as a bonus on a later CD release. Fun Boy Three sang background on the A side (sort of a payback for Bananarama's backup vocals on Fun Boy Three's "T'aint What You Do (It's The Way That You Do It)" from earlier in 1982). The single reached the #5 spot on the U.K. singles chart. The London new wave band is still intact though one original member, Siobhan Fahey, left in 1988.
