Samantha Fox

Samantha Karen Fox was born on April 15, 1966 in Mile End, London, England. Born in a working class, traditionally of market traders, she showed interest in theater at a very early age. When she was only 3, she appeared in her first stage production and was later enrolled in the Anna Scher Theatre School from the age of 5. She did her first television appearance on BBC, at the age of 10 in a play called No Way Out. From here on, she enrolled at the Judi Dench Mountview Theatre School at the age of 11. When she was a child she also was skeptical whether she was gonna be a singer or a police woman. In the end, she chose the first one. When she was only 14 she formed her first band with Richard Smart on guitar and Bob Day on tambourine and Sam herself as the frontwoman. Her first record deal became a reality the following year with Lamborghini Records. However, both the theatre and music careers were put on hold as her next career took over her life: Modeling. When she was 16, her mother, Carole Fox, took pictures of her daughter in lingerie and submitted them to the Sunday People newspaper's "Face and Shape of 1983" amateur modeling contest. Her pictures were published, judges ranked them and she eventually got the chance to do her first photo shoot (though test shoot) in early 1983 for The Sun newspaper's Page 3 feature. She later had her breasts insured for a quarter of a million sterling pounds and soon became one of the most photographed women in the U.K. after Princess Diana of Wales and former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher. During her teenage years, she studied in a Catholic high school and once she and her classmates set up a contest of who looked more like Kim Wilde. Yes, Kim Wilde the other British pop starlette. Sam won.
In 1986, as a twist of fate and after becoming Britain's most sought after sex symbol of the era, she retired from the Page 3 topless modeling and started her recording career. She released in that same year her debut album, Touch Me. The album had really good sales and spawned successful singles, especially her signature hit, the ultra sensuous and horny Touch Me (I Want Your Body). She continued spawning more hits with her subsequent albums, including the hip-hop flavored Naughty Girls, the S/A/W-produced Nothing's Gonna Stop Me Now and she became a really famous and popular face all around the world. Whenever she toured, thousands of thousands of her fans received her at the airports. In her 1990 Pleasure Zone World Tour, for example, when she went to Colombia, 45000 people greeted her at the airport. And she toured other rare and exotic locations such as Costa Rica, India, among others. Fox's father, Patrick, a former carpenter, managed Sam's career until 1991. Then, Sam hired accountants to trace over 1 million sterling pounds that she believed her own father had embezzled from her accounts. She then sued her father, who by then was already divorced and later remarried, and in May 1995 she was awarded a 363, 500 sterling pounds court settlement. Patrick Fox died in 2000, at which time he and Sam had not spoken to each other for an entire decade.
In 1995, she did a one-off appearance to celebrate Page Three's 25th Anniversary and due to popular demand, she appeared in her photo spreads for the entire anniversary week. In this same year, she also recorded and cowrote the track Go for the Heart for the UK submission for the Eurovision song contest. She called herself SOX along with Cris Bonacci and Lorraine McKintosh and the song placed #4 and didn't go to the final rounds of the song that would represent the U.K. at the Eurovision song contest. In 2003, after strong suspicions, she finally came out of the closet and revealed that her partner was her manager Myra Stratton. In 2004, she rerecorded her signature hit Touch Me (I Want Your Body) with Swedish musician Günther. In late 2009 they talked about serious possibilities to plan a civil relationship with Myra, after a long time of dating and living together. She continued appearing reality shows such as I'm a Celebrity, Get Me Outta Here! and Celebrity Wife Swap. In 2009, she released a double disc Greatest Hits compilation, including Sam's own choice of tracklist. This compilation includes 3 unreleased S/A/W/ songs. Nowadays, there are strong rumors about a new studio album, her first one since 2005's Angel with an Attitude. Let's wait and see. For now, let's enjoy her classics. On June 1, 2010 Samantha along with Sabrina premiered in Youtube their video for their take on Blondie's classic hit, Call Me. This single will be released for radio stations on June 4, 2010.

I Wanna Have Some Fun (1988)


I Wanna Have Some Fun is Samantha Fox's third studio album, released in November 1988. Here Samantha used different producers in this album and there's more variety in this album, musically speaking.

Angel with an Attitude (2005)

This is Samantha Fox's 6th studio album, released on October 18, 2005. The sound this time around is --as described by Fox herself-- "a blend of rock with electronic sounds". She co-wrote each and every single one of the tracks and co-produced the album herself. The album was recorded in Montreal, Canada through LaChapelle Records, which suddenly became bankrupt and as a result the record had no promotion and was not re-stocked in stores. Fox subsequently released the record through her independent label Fox Records. Her objective for this album was to present herself as a mature woman and as open book and she based her life experiences to write all of this new material. According to Fox the lyrics "show my weakness, joy, moments of total euphoria, but also sadness. These words simply flowed from my heart." The songs reflect her despondency over past troubles as well as her ambition to overcome. Also, during the time that she was writing her autobiography she realized that she had crossed a very important path in her life and wanted to translate that into verse form. She also gained inspiration from her relationship with her manager Myra Stratton. The album was rereleased in 2007 in Australia and New Zealand with a remix of her signature hit Touch Me added as another bonus. This version was internationally available for download in February 2009.// Este es el sexto disco de estudio de Samantha Fox, lanzado el 18 de Octubre 2005. El sonido esta vez es --según Fox misma -- "una mezcla de rock con sonidos electrónicos." Ella co-escribió todas y cada una de las canciones que conforman el disco y co-produjo el disco ella misma. El disco fue grabado en Montreal, Canadá a través de La Chapelle Records, el cual de repente quedó en bancarrota y como consecuencia el disco no recibió ninguna promoción y no fue reabastecido en tiendas de discos. Fox consecuentemente lanzó el disco a través de su propia compañía disquera, Fox Records. El objetivo de este material era de presentarse a sí misma como una mujer madura y como un libro abierto y ella basó sus experiencias personales para escribir todo este nuevo material. Según Fox las letras "muestran mi debilidad, alegría, momentos de euforia total, pero también tristeza. Estas palabras simplemente fluyeron de mi corazón." Estas canciones reflejan su abatimiento con respecto a problemas que tuvo en el pasado como también su ambición de superar las mismas. También, durante el tiempo que estuvo escribiendo su autobiografía ella se dio cuenta que ella había cruzado un camino muy importante en su vida y quería traducir eso en forma de verso. Ella también ganó inspiración por su relación amorosa con su manager Myra Stratton. El álbum fue relanzado en el 2007 en Australia y Nueva Zelanda con un remix de su éxito más famoso Touch Me agregado como un bonus track. Esta versión fue internacionalmente lanzada para descargar en Febrero 2009.

Tracklist:

1-) Angel with an Attitude.
2-) To Be Heard.
3-) Destined to Be.
4-) I Give Myself to You.
