Eighth Wonder was a somewhat short-lived but no less fabulous group from the late 80s, fronted by Patsy Kensit. Their biggest hit was the wonderfully seductive “I’m Not Scared”, written and produced for them by the Pet Shop Boys.
The Pet Shop Boys went on to record and release their own version but I must say that I prefer the Eighth Wonder version. Something about Patsy’s vocals, maybe. Swedish group, West End Girls also included a version on their debut album.
Browsing YouTube today, I found a video clip for “I’m Not Scared” which I hadn’t actually seen before so here it is.
Some good news is that Eighth Wonder’s album “Fearless” has been remastered and is being released in a couple of weeks. There are bonus tracks including an extended version of “I’m Not Scared” as well as the elusive French language version. Can’t wait for that one. I already have my pre-order in with Amazon UK. 🙂
