Dollar were David Van Day (who appeared on Coach Trip in 2010 and I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here in 2008) and Theresa Bazar. The duo had ten Top 40 singles (mostly lightweight pop) between 1978 and 1988.
In 2002 the duo appeared on a reality show called Reborn In The USA,
in which old pop acts attempted to rejuvenate their careers by touring
the USA. Each week they faced a public vote-off. On the show they
infamously had a blazing row with 80s pop star Sonia - I remember it well!
Dollar also appeared on Pop Goes The Band in 2008, which was also another attempt to rejuvenate their ailing musical career.
Released in 1978, Shooting Star was Dollar's debut single, reaching #14 in the UK.
Released in November 1981, Mirror Mirror was a big hit over the Christmas period, reaching #4 in the UK and #5 in Ireland. The track was produced by the legendary Trevor Horn and was the second single to be released from Dollar's third studio album The Dollar Album. The B-side, Radio, had previously featured on the duo's second album The Paris Collection.
The original Erasure version which was released in April 1986, only reached #85 in the UK singles chart. Dollar's three biggest hit singles all reached #4 and these were Loves Gotta Hold On Me (1979), Mirror, Mirror (1981) and Give Me Back My Heart (1982).
Oh L'amour reached #7 in the UK and was the duo's last Top 40 hit single.
