Being a teenage girl growing up in the bowels of WV was not always easy. We were not exposed to much culture so when boy bands like "New Kids on the Block" and "Bacstreet Boys" popped up on the scene one could easily fall into the hormonal traps that backwoodsy gals fall easily into. However, Tiffany, my best gal pal, and I were not easily swayed. We preferred Beach Boys to Backstreet and Connie Francis dominated our after school listening hours.
However, when Tiffany came to my house one day clutching a cd from a British boy band called "Take That" - we were goners.
No sooner had I picked out Robbie Williams as my own personal lustmuffin did they break up.
Robbie had a few hits in the US as a solo artist but did much better back in the UK - here is an example of a much more tame duet with Nicole Kidman that had me drooling onto my slightly dusty keyboard:
However, I have just learned that even though Mr. Williams did not have a breakaway American hit, he did manage to make it here for his Rehab!
