Not sure if the version of Eastenders theme that was sung by Anita Dobbs would could or not, but it doesn't hurt to take every chance I can to remind ER about that depressing program.  BounceGiggle

don't think I actually saw a single episode of FAME when I was a kid, but it's clearly one of the most fondly remembered tv shows of its era.

There was one episode of Fame which made me cry: I can't remember the name of it but the kids at the school were saying goodbye to one of their teachers who was being forced to retire and the song they sang was called "Star Maker".

The sad thing is that Michael Thoma who played the teacher was dying and the song was a farewell to him.  Bluesad
