Tears On The Ballroom Floor - Bucks Fizz - Composed by Ant!

  • Well I never knew this!


    Tears On The Ballroom Floor - Bucks Fizz - Anthony Phillips Composer:


    Tears on the Ballroom Floor


    "She looks at me and gently smiles, as if she knew I'd ask her all the time..."

  • Tears On the Ballroom Floor was one of a number of songs that Ant co-wrote with Roy Hill in the mid-eighties. Another song that they co-wrote called Distant Heart was due to be recorded by Roger Daltrey but the recording of the album that it was potentially to be included on was cancelled.


    Incidentally, keen-eyed viewers of the Cry No More video for the song may spot Nick Magnus on keyboards.

  • Thanks for the extra info Sir Ralph and Jonathan.


    Who knows, the track could have been Ant's 'In The Air Tonight' with mega worldwide success!


    What an untapped plethora of talent the members of Genesis past and present possess!

    "She looks at me and gently smiles, as if she knew I'd ask her all the time..."

  • Well they've had Peter Sinfield write lyrics for them - where would Bucks Fizz be without prog rock, eh?

    Pete Sinfield also wrote the lyrics for Celine Dion's "Think Twice"

    There is a church bell

    That rings on the hour

    Filling the streets

    Stopping the world awhile
