The English female pop vocal duo Bananarama originally formed as a trio in London in 1981.
The founding members Sarah Dallin, Karen Woodward, and Siobhan Fahey were roommates before forming their singing trio but Woodward met Bananarama co-founder Dallin when they were 5 years old. They remain best friends and use FaceTime to drink wine together and chat.
Their success on both pop and dance charts has them listed in the Guinness World Records as the all-female group with the most chart entries in the WORLD! Between 1982 and 2009, they had 28 singles reach the Top 50 of the UK Singles Chart.
By 2002, Bananarama had sold 40 million records worldwide
The song “Venus” had been a part of Bananarama’s repertoire for several years before they actually recorded it.
Originally written by Dutch musician Robbie van Leeuwen in 1969, the group had the idea of turning the song into a dance music tune.
The song went on to reach number one in 7 countries!
