Lost '80s Pop Classic Week: "Robert De Niro's Waiting" Bananarama (1983)

Robert De Niro is one of the COOLEST actors of all time. He's got it all, money, looks, the best of everything. But I never actually WISHED I was him until I saw this video with those Bananarama BABES singing about HIM.

Lucky dog!


  1. I had this as a kid- still do! KP Hula Hoops had an offer where you could send off 10 promotional packs (or whatever) and get any 7" single from the top 40 free. (#)

    This was the first time I'd heart of Robert De Niro; matter of fact this song was all I knew about him for years.

    Good song, still holds up well today.

    (#) FWIW, it was the first 7" I owned, though that had more to do with not owning my own record player; I already had quite a few cassettes and bought my music in that format.

  2. "Robert De Niro's Waiting;" "Shy Boy;" "It Ain't What You Do, It's The Way that You Do It" (w/ FB3); "Rough Justice;" "Really Saying Something" (w/ FB3); and "The Wild Life;" "Cruel Summer." I could listen to these tracks all day long and never tire of them.

    Some of Bananarama's best work was their early material from both the BANANARAMA and DEEP SEA SKIVING albums. I love Bananarama's work with Fun Boy Three (FB3).
