From the get-go, I've been wild about Kim, despite her being slagged off as a Blondie knockoff by none other than Debbie Harry. I'd always thought Kim was a superstar in her native Britain, but only recently did I review the charts and learn that after her smash eponymous debut, most of her releases had fared pretty poorly. (Just four more Top 10 hits in the ensuing 30 years, and zero No. 1's.) On the Continent, however, Kim remained a force to be reckoned with for years -- and even today she is the female David Hasselhoff of Germany.(In fact, her last two LPs were released by Sony Music Germany.) "View From a Bridge" is from her sorely underrated sophomore album, "Select," which never even got released in the U.S. The first single was the haunting "Cambodia," which stalled at No. 12 in the U.K. but topped the charts all over Europe. Its follow-up, "View From a Bridge," hit No. 16 in her homeland, but was a Top 10 hit in Switzerland, Belgium, Sweden, Netherlands, Germany, Australia and Austria. Not too shabby for a song about suicide!
