Singer of "I Touch Myself" dead
Chrissie Amphlett, Australian singer who led band the Divinyls for nearly a decade, is dead of breast cancer at 53.
She looks a bit like Garland in the photo..?
And she also played Russell Crowe's mother (!) in Blood Brothers...hmmm.....
I love that song, still, and their version of "Human," later covered by another Chrissie - Chrissie Hynde of the Pretenders.
Whoops, I got my Chrissies - or the spelling of them, mixed up.
It's CHRISSY AMPHLETT. My apologies.
She didn't touch herself enough for the self-exam?
I loved their first single, 'Boys in Town'. RIP.
She was wonderful as Judy Garland in The Boy from Oz in Australia.
Favorite Divinyls song: "Ring Me Up."
Best song of all those used in "Sixteen Candles."
Eternal rest, Chrissie. You suffered enough here these past few years.
R2 she actually pushed for that song to be used to promote self exams.
Man, she was young. I had no idea she was sick. RIP.
She made an excellent "naughty schoolgirl" - RIP, honey.
This really saddened me. They had some great tracks. Loved their remake of "I Ain't Gonna Eat Out My Heart Anymore" for the Buffy the Vampire Slayer soundtrack.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GBKsQcJL0kQ I thought it only made you go blind.
She never claimed it was the Midas touch.
I've seen The Divinyls live! She could rock as hard as any dude!
I love their song " Back To The Wall" that was used for the Nightmare on Elm Street 4 soundtrack...Rest in Peace.
That's uncanny, I've been listening to "I Touch Myself" repeatedly these last few days. Now it's gonna feel weird doing it. Oh well, RIP Chrissie.
RIP to an amazing performer and artist.
I actually didn't realize how much more the Divinyls did before I Touch Myself.
Anyone have suggestions for songs I should check out?
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bbGMC6goH18 I'll miss her!When I think about her I touch myself too.I always wanted to touch her so she could relax her hands.
Another for R16
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_aYzQb6cc5E Sad. 'Sleeping Beauty' was another great Divinyls track.
She was a fucking force of nature on stage. Divinyls have an amazing catalogue of songs. RIP Chrissy
She was amazing as Judy Garland in The Boy from Oz.
Pleasure and Pain is one of the greatest songs of the 80's...I used to have the 45.
Waaaaa, I just found out about her today.
