Roberto Di Matteo's Waiting

Hi kidz, do you like Venus? Wanna see me stick a middle finger up to the rap internet with Banana clips? Wanna copy me and do exactly like I did? Try poptimism and drop a top 5 Bananarama Top Of The Pops performances list?

Highlight: everything! The TOTP equivalent of Mary J. Blige & Grand Puba on Yo! MTV Raps.

Highlight: 4 years into their career, Bananarama finally bothered to learn some proper choreography.

Highlight: making dungarees sexy after Dexy's Midnight Runners did the complete opposite.

Highlight: Fun Boy Three stealing the show with their proto-Guitar Hero battle.

Highlight: ILX ppl once called Girls Aloud the new Bananarama LMFAO.

Not sure this new Bananarama reunion is a good idea, tbh. Last comeback around they ruined an Italo Disco banger by Auto-Tuneing their vocals on there, and like Baton Rouge rappers, Bananarama should never use Auto-Tune - it makes them sound like everybody else when the whole point is that they're great because they sound like nobody else innit.

This new comeback also means that all the usual suspects from Pitchfork/The Guardian/Jezebel might start churning out ‘Bananarama Are The Outsider Artist Adult Pop Group 2017 Needs’ thinkpieces, and Lord knows nobody in the real world wants to read that shite.

I had no idea Keren was married to Andrew Ridgeley until I saw the story about their separation the other day. Always assumed both him and George Michael were bennies (no Chris Ott.)

Bananarama's best of is bonkers levels of consistent.

Intentional blunder or not, "that" Dexys performance on TotP is a classic, imo.
