Pat Wilson is 67 today.  Happy birthday Pat.

Pat exploded on to our radio stations and televisions back in 1983 with Bop Girl.pat wilson

Bop Girl was written by Pat’s then husband Ross Wilson who provides backing vocals and appears in the extraordinary video.

I’ll tell you who else appears in the video. Look out for 15 year old Nicole Kidman.

The song was written in the last 70’s and Ross put up a demo for his band Mondo Rock to consider. They liked it at the time, but figured it wasn’t a Mondo Rock song. He hung on to it for 4 years before rolling it out for his wife.
