‘Should I Let You In’ – Belinda Carlisle



 

Dear diary, life is fantastique and I have my Emma. 

 

It was great to see her again today.  I missed her so much.

 

Sorry I was a little off-ish, though, Emma – I’ve been tired.
 


 

OH AYE!  All of a sudden, since I saw Flash and we were both desperate for record money, I’ve come into a huge windfall!  AYE!  So I went mad…

 

Well, first off, I swapped a pile of old commix for a Sisters Of Mercy 7-inch bootleg called ‘Life’, which is basically a single of live versions of ‘Emma’ and ‘Ghost Rider’ in a book with all their lyrics in. 


It’s really nice and it’s Italian.

 

BUT WHAT DID I BUY WITH MY QUIDS?

 

The following singles…

 

‘The Race’ by Yello


 



 

‘Heart’ by Pet Shop Boys


 

‘Always On My Mind’ by Pet Shop Boys


 

‘The Dreaming’ by Kate Bush


 



 

The following 12-inch singles…

 

‘Wait!’ by Robert Howard & Kym Mazelle


 

‘Nothing Has Been Proved’ by Dusty Springfield

‘Fine Time’Yazz

‘That’s The Way Love Is’Ten City
