Here's a remarkable trio I would like my readers to meet. Jimmy Chng from The Decibels introduced me to this vocal group. They call themselves Fascinating Aida.
The three ladies joined forces in March 1983 after the years of disco lights and John Travolta. Always around and to my delight, British comedy - stand-ups, groups or otherwise - have always tickled my funny bones.
They come by the dozens, especially in the 60's and I find them as hilarious as the time when Harry Secombe, Peter Sellars, Stephen Fry and Rowan Atkinson were still around. The last two are still dishing it out, I think.
Fascinating Aida Musical Group (from left) Adele Anderson, Issy van Randwyck and Dillie Keane.
But this group is slightly different. They belong to a genre called Satirical Cabaret and consists of only ladies. The original group included Dillie Keane, Adele Anderson and Liza Pulman with changes here and there.
You don't need the lyrics because their articulation is perfect, the best English teachers. Enjoy. 😁 In case you do need the lyrics just key in the title song and you'll get a million sites to choose from.
Fascinating Aida should apply to teach the English Language in Singapore and put more fun into the local syllabus. They would make fascinating tutors. (Unless one is able to switch, speaking Singlish doesn't really help, especially when you need to speak publicly in the media or abroad.)
Click comment below. Lots of flavours recommended.
Founded in March 1983 Dillie Keane, along with Marilyn Cutts and Lizzie Richardson.
