To refresh your memory, here is the song/video.

Fast Forward 30 Years

Recently, Jimmy Somerville, the lead singer of Bronski Beat, re-recorded an acoustic snippet of “Smalltown Boy” Listen below and I think you’ll be just as impressed as I was. Damn, that man can still sing. Talk about not losing your vocal abilities over the years.

And for an added surprise, here’s Jimmy joining a street performer last year, during a rendition of “Smalltown Boy”
