Bonus: #21 of 2017

Dear Poptastic Readers,

Today is the day that we feature the song that came in at #21 in our 2017 countdown. It has always been a tough choice for the one song that didn't make our Top 20. So that is why we give it a special feature.

#21 in our favourite songs of 2017 is "Thinking About..." by Slippry Feet. Click on the name of the song to see what we initially wrote about it.

"Thinking About" is actually a demo sung by the disco duo Slippry Feet. Slippry Feet are Jacquie O'Sullivan (formerly of Bananarama) and Paul Simper (formerly of No. 1 Magazine, and author of Pop Stars In My Panty). They performed and recorded from 1992 to 1996. However, this year they put on the new song because of Paul's new book.

Sadly, the song wasn't available anywhere for purchase or streaming. If it had been available, it sure would have made our Top 5 songs of the year. However, the song was available to be heard on YouTube with a video made up of images from their Slippry Feet days. Have a look ...

Wasn't that awesome? We think so! We hope Slippry Feet begin their second act for 2018.
