I love 80’s Dance Pop music. Listening to Janet Jackson’s “Control” Album followed by Madonna’s single “Cherish” and some Paula Abdul brightens up my day. Now I have come across an 80’s Pop Duo from across the pond, Mel and Kim. If you don’t know, Mel and Kim (a.k.a. Melanie Appleby and Kim Appleby) was a sister-superstar pop duo in the U.K. during the late 80’s. They’re famous for their hit singles: “Respectable” , “F.L.M” and “Showing Out (Get Fresh At The Weekend)” off the debut album, F.L.M. . Sadly, Mel passed away in 1990 due of spine cancer, five years before she was also diagnosed with cancer and had a tumor removed from her liver. Kim had a successful solo career during the early 1990’s with her debut album, Kim Appleby.
