Paperdolls - Gonna Make You Blush

It's girl group time again, and this next band released their only single in 1998. Consisting of Lucy Pargeter, Debbie Cresswell and Hollie Johnson (!), "Gonna Make You Blush" was written by Steelworks (Eliot Kennedy, Mike Percy and Tim Lever) and the girls themselves, and is a pretty good slice of disco-pop. Unfortunately, the single flopped, peaking at #65 in September 1998. Such a shame, as of the 4 tracks I heard from them, they sounded quite promising. The girls had also toured as a support act for Boyzone, but it was to no avail and after a couple of years together, the band split.

I'm sure some of you have heard of the group before, but what a lot of you probably don't know is that apart from never having a top 40 hit, Paperdolls have something else in common with Milan, one of them later went on to become a soap star. Lucy from the band now plays Chastity Dingle in Emmerdale, and she has just had a baby girl!
