Kids in America

Story

Since I was a kid in America when this song hit our airwaves in 1982, I thought I'd make this my Independence Day offering. This song only made it to #25 here (her biggest US hit was her cover of The Supremes' You Keep Me Hanging On), but her own song has been covered numerous times, most notably (and recently) by The Foo Fighters. Kim Wilde had quite a career after her debut with Kids in America, especially in her homeland of the UK, so she's far from being a OHW. Fortunately, I have the freedom to bend my own rules here to fit a holiday...

Happy birthday, America! From one of your kids...
