As someone who grew up in the UK, I have to admit that I had never heard of Sandra until after the millennium (once we got the internet!).

It's really weird, her songs are totally catchy but it seems she was given virtually zero exposure in the UK.

I see her first few singles were actually released in the UK, but honestly I don't remember hearing any of them. No Top Of The Pops either, that I can recall.

She seems to be the exact kinda thing that the UK would of lapped up in the middle of Madonna hysteria, and even up to the late 80's when Kylie broke into the charts.

Just seems weird to me that such a popular act (who sang in English) never broke out in the UK.
