Ahlan! Loves: The Rick Resurgence
Rick Astley

Why? In the words of one of the 80s great poets and philosophisers, "We're no strangers to love, you know the rules, and so do I..." And I think that's all we need to say about that.

And it would be, if Rick Astley hadn't recently been the recipient of soooo much Internet love - 14.5 million hits for his classic hit Never Gonna Give You Up! - that he's almost considering a relaunch.

Computer geeks recently sent out a scandalous headline, which, when readers clicked on the link, were directed to Rick's classic track on youtube. And the formerly bouffanted singer said, "It's a bit strange to have videos of when you were a young guy out on the Internet. It makes me laugh - I'm sure it annoys a lot of other people."

Not us, Rick! We're practising the twitchy hands dance already...
