Love Or Money by Marilyn

Dear Poptastic Readers,

Do you remember Marilyn from the 80s? Well, Marilyn is back with a new single called "Love Or Money" and it is quite good.  

Who is Marilyn? Marilyn's real name is Peter Robinson. He was famous in the early 80s for being androynous! And he was one of Boy George's best friends. If you live in the UK or Australia, you might remember Marilyn's 1983 top-ten hit "Calling Your Name." In the US, Marilyn is probably best known for being part of the 1984 charity single "Do They Know It's Christmas?" by Band-Aid. Marilyn was wearing a sporty yellow and blue top, and standing next to Bananarama.

So onto the new song. It has a mid-tempo reggae beat and Marilyn's vocals are quite soulful. Boy George even sings backing vocals as he helped write the track with Marilyn. And Marilyn looks amazing in the video! Just have a look ...

Wasn't that lovely? Yes, it was!

I found out about this song because my friend Richard posted on Facebook a link to a new interview with Marilyn in The Guardian. I found the article fascinating and I was pleasantly surprised to like the song.

"Love Or Money" is available on digital outlets everywhere. It even comes with a nice remix package. Don't delay! Buy your copy today!

Cheers then,
