Remember Kim Wilde? Well, the aging pop star is still around and reminded everyone of her existence in a big way today, with an impromptu performance of Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree and Kids in America on the tube.
The amateur youtube video shows brother Ricky bursting into a guitar instrumental and Kim, perhaps having had one too many eggnogs, joining in not long after. According to the video info, the recording was made on the underground after the MagicFM Christmas Party. The improvised gig may have been far from a packed Wembley stadium, but in looks like a good time nevertheless. While the quality of the musical performance itself is dubious to say the least, it sure works in spreading some seasonal cheer. And really, what else could you ask for from an acoustic session on public transport? Maybe this will actually be good promotion for Kim, who is in the midst of working on a new album to be released in 2013. Who would have guessed, right? The musically inclined family includes Kim and Ricky, their sister Roxanne and father Marty Wilde and members of the Wilde clan have been on and off the stage since the late 50s. It’s no wonder then that music is just bursting out of them at this point.
