Culture of Illusion – Hungry for Love.

Samantha Fox, the British pin-up girl of the 1980’s and, therefore, of my burgeoning sexuality, had a very short lived musical career.

She is mainly famous for this:


I have tried to make this picture family suitable. I apologize to all who have to witness this photograph but I wanted to show those who were not familiar with Sam Fox where her fame stemmed from.

It was not her love of rubber ducks.

Her biggest hit was this:

Once you have enjoyed that beautiful piece of pop I recommend that you then listen to this beautiful cover version by The Lost Fingers.

I am not not sure whether I created this post to show the weird picture of Sam Fox holding two rubber ducks or to introduce everyone to a lovely cover version of her one hit pop song.

That is all.

Goodnight all of the people.

  1. I believe so, yes. There was, and still is really, this very unusual aesthetic in the way that the female form is portrayed in mainstream British culture that seems to say “LOOK! A beautiful naked woman make sure you don’t find this attractive!” One of the many reasons that Britain is, quite rightly, looked upon as a very odd island.

    I remember reading a quote that was attributed to Salvador Dali, and I wish I could remember exactly where I saw it, but to paraphrase badly. “If I had grown up English I would never have been a surrealist because the English from the moment they awake in the morning exist in a reality entirely framed by surrealism.”

    Thus do I butcher the words of a genius, but I think the sentiment that I think I remember is buried in there somewhere.

    So, yes, ducks…
