    Default Jimmy Somerville and The Communards

    What a Singer and what a group Jimmy and The Communards were - no doubts!

    Their version of "Don't Leave Me This Way" was totally brilliant indeed I think - in how it becomes very high notes and how they held in particular

    This must easily be one of the stand-out songs of the 1980s without question I feel

    Don't check out Jimmy's last version of Don't Leave Me This Way from a year or so back, Richard

    It really is terrible ... he truly has wrecked the song I feel/think!

    I feel he wrecked it the first time he did it, devoid of any emotion and soul, an empty pop cover.

    Small town boy is a superb track and way ahead of its time in its content and meaning

    Yeah. That's a great group, but the keyboard player died from cancer either late last year or a few months ago. The 80's was the best. I honestly feel sorry somewhat for the kids today who aren't being 'exposed' to the same level of quality pop songs that we appreciate from yesteryear.
