'Kids In America' got in my Breakers but I didn't like that she sung "we're the kids in America" when she was from Hertfordshire. When looking up the sales chart positions recently I saw her at number 4 with a song called 'Chequered Love' which I don't remember at all.

30th May 1981 [date errors in previous weeks have been corrected).

Hope you enjoyed the trip, but you weren't so much near my living town/place.
flying distance between Belgrade (and approx. same for Dubrovnik) and Zagreb is 400 km (250 miles),
comparable to distance between Newcastle (upon Tyne) and London.
Travel by train between Bg and Bar (Montenegro) must have been adventurous, the scenery is really spectacular, but as far as i heard lately nothing has changed there from the time i traveled that route (for the first and the last time (for now)) some thirty years ago.
Dubrovnik is also spectacular but overcrowded, (even in may), July and August are completely traffic mess over there.

(Belatedly...) It was the hastily-released follow-up - and received a lot of airplay at the time. CL wasn't as good as the debut (with which I recall having the same reservations as you!), nor indeed the third single Water On Glass, which is probably my favourite of hers.

No sign of Human League's Sound of the Crowd? I recall that being briefly number one on my chart at the time.

'Water On Glass' might edge into the chart but I wasn't a fan of Kim Wilde. As for 'The Sound Of The Crowd', I hadn't realised this was missing. I can't understand why it didn't make some sort of appearance, given that The Human League had four previous hits.

Thought that seemed strange!

On a similar subject, good to see The Freshies on your chart (I Can't Get... peaked around #14 on mine), but no sign of Teardrop Explodes themselves? Perhaps not your cuppa.
