T' Pau's Heart and Soul: Ode to a Spectacular Perm

by Gary Pini

Today's oldie-but-goodie video, "Heart & Soul," became the UK band's biggest hit after Pepe Jeans used the track in a commercial back in 1987. It made it up to #4 on the pop chart, but that was about it for the group, at least here in the USA. Fronted by the amazingly permed singer Carol Decker, they did have a couple more hits overseas and actually re-united last year for a 25th anniversary tour. So, WTF is a T'Pau? Sci-fi fans know that the name came from a character on Star Trek.
