Subject: Brenda K. Starr

Written By: george78 on 07/05/05 at 4:51 pm

For a short while, Brenda K. Starr was on the hottest female acts on the scene back in the late 80s. She had catchy dance tracks like "Breakfast In Bed" and "What You See Is What You Get", as well as the ballad with George Lamond, "No Matter What". Starr's biggest hit is "I Still Believe" which climbed into the Top 15 on the pop charts. I used to love that song when I was younger. I bought her Greatest Hits CD that compiled her best English and Spanish material. "I Still Believe" is one of the best break-up songs. It really just hits you when you're trying to get over someone. Trust me, I know.  :(  ;D

She's the one who discovered Mariah Carey.  Mariah had been working as a back-up singer for Brenda K Starr, who took her to this big excecutive party one night where she first met Tommy Mottola.  In 1999, Mariah covered 'I Still Believe'.  :)

Is she the singer who sang that 80's song 'Piano in the Dark'? I always loved that song, but I never knew who sang it.

I gotta say, Starr's original version is MUCH better than Mariah's. The way Brenda sings it, you can almost feel what a person is feeling after a break-up.  :\'(

I love "I still Believe"  too. I saw the music video for it in 2001 I think on MTV 2. The music video I think was set in a bed room of a house and Brenda was going around the room and singing. I like the music video as well as the song.

"What You See Is What You Get" is such a fantastic song. What Billboard Chart position did this reach?

Kareoke Queen, you have a serious problem. Who cares is someone makes a mistake or two while writing their post? As long as people can understand it, its ok. You must have really low self esteem, so you point out peoples' minor mistakes to make yourself feel better. What a loser. Usually it's just moderators on message board power trips, but you're the exception. I have some advice, and hopefully you'll take it: GET A LIFE!!
