Remember this song? It's coming back on CD



Kim Wilde's Kids in America appears on one of the most under-rated and sadly forgotten soundtracks of the '80s? Can you remember it? (Answer at the bottom.) But here's the good news: Wilde has just re-released her first two albums -- Kim Wilde and Select -- in expanded CD editions.

Her debut album reached No.3 on the U.K. charts when originally issued in 1981 with the hit singles Kids In America (No. 2 in the U.K., No. 3 in Australia, No. 25 in the U.S.), Chequered Love and Water On Glass. Both re-releases have bonus tracks, the original LP artwork and liner notes approved by her official fan club and Wilde herself.

If all this news has you aching to see her live in concert, you better hope you live in the U.K. or have the coin to buy a plane ticket. Her latest tour dates keep our British cutie -- yeah, she looks hotter than ever -- very close to home. Maybe we can snag her for a future Regeneration Tour to the U.S.

(And the answer to what movie soundtrack that Kids in America appears on: 1984's Reckless, starring Daryl Hannah and Aidan Quinn. The soundtrack also features INXS, Romeo Void and Bob Seger.)
