The Nolans – The Artist/s
The Nolans are an Irish-born girl group who formed in Blackpool in 1974 as the Nolan Sisters, before changing their name in 1980. Often referred to as Ireland’s First Family of Music, they were the first Irish performing family to achieve international success, preceding the likes of the Fureys and the Corrs. Between 1979 and 1982, the group had seven international hits, including “I’m In the Mood for Dancing”, “Gotta Pull Myself Together”, “Who’s Gonna Rock You”, “Attention to Me” and “Chemistry”. They are one of the world’s biggest selling girl groups. They were particularly successful in Japan, becoming the first European act to win the Tokyo Music Festival with “Sexy Music” in 1981, and won a Japanese Grammy in 1992.
I’m In The Mood For Dancing – The Song
“I’m in the Mood for Dancing” is a single by the Irish pop group The Nolan Sisters (later to become The Nolans). Originally released in December 1979, the song became a top-three hit in the UK in February 1980. A blend of pop and disco, it has since become synonymous with the group and remains their biggest hit. It was also a hit in many countries around the world. In Japan and South Africa, it reached number one. The song was originally recorded as part of the Nolan Sisters’ first mainstream pop album, simply titled Nolan Sisters in 1979. It was written by Ben Findon, Mike Myers and Bob Puzey, and featured lead vocals by member Bernie Nolan. The group recorded a promotional video for the song, which featured youngest sister Coleen even though she was not an official member at the time and was not featured on the recording. Soon after the release of this song, the group changed their name to The Nolans and Coleen became a full-time member, replacing eldest sister Anne.
The Heart / Foot – The Shape
This record has been modelled into a pair of dancing feet shaped as a heart designed to convey the love of dancing. The heart shape and its meaning has evolved over hundreds of years. Nowadays it means love but before the 13th and 14th centuries it was generally drawn for decorative purposes. People at that time thought of our hearts as books of memory and believed feelings for the beloved were somehow written on your heart.
