  1. Well Belegenda Carslayle totally slayed The Gays at a packed out RVT tonight.

    Looking and sounding amazing, Belinda did a set at the end of a birthday fundraiser for the Animal People Alliance (including Live Your Life Be Free, (We Want) The Same Thing, Runaway Horses, Leave a Light On, I Get Weak, Heaven Is A Place On Earth)

    Over £40k was raised - somebody bid £3,800 to sing Summer Rain on stage with Belinda.

    Lady Colin Campbell was also there!
  2. Sounds like quite a night! That setlist is pop perfection.

  3. I saw her at the Let’s Rock event here and she was very good. Same set list except for she did Circle In The Sand instead of Runaway Horses.

  4. I always wish I could like Circle In The Sand more than I could. It's one my of least favourites of from the classic era of 87-91 of hers.

  5. The event I was at, other than Heaven, it had the loudest singalong and reception.

  6. Same, and it's my mother's favorite so I heard it a lot growing up. Definitely weaker than the entirety of Runaway Horses, and probably just outside my Top 5 from Heaven.

  7. Talking of mums mine’s top 3 would be Leave A Light On, Circle In The Sand and La Luna. I heard these a lot in the house growing up.

  8. I think La Luna is quite underrated.
  9. 100%

    It's exceptional. That chorus is incredible.
  10. What? Nooo. It was always my favourite as a kid. The album was my first album I owned on cassette and I adored it.
  11. Circle In The Sand is in my Top 5 Belinda. Everything about it is so evocative of time and place.

    Love La Luna as well, which is such a bittersweetly romantic song.

  12. La Luna was massive in Greece luckily. Whenever we have a full moon people post the song or sing it.

  13. I've grown to love Circle in the Sand. All the Heaven singles are perfection, as are the Runaway Horses singles.

  14. Yep, sorry but for me it just goes nowhere.
  15. I can't even look at you right now...

  17. I'm always surprised by the disfavour 'Circle in the Sand' is shown on here. It's a brilliant song. That Heaven is a Place on Earth/I Get Weak/Circle in the Sand run of singles was just perfect - each great but offering something slightly different from the others.

    By contrast, Runaway Horses seems very over-rated to me. Of the singles, the title track is the only one that really clicked with me, and the only two big UK hits (Leave a Light On and We Want the Same Thing) lacked the charm of the Heaven on Earth singles. If anything, I preferred Live Your Life Be Free and its singles.
  18. Circle In the Sand is one of my all time favourite go-to 80s summer songs, especially with a walk on the beach.
  19. Circle in the Sand is gorgeous.

  20. I agree.

    Still think ''Love Never Dies'' should've been left as an album track & ''Nobody Owns Me'' released as the final single instead.
