I've Never Been To Me... Again!

When CHARLENE recorded "I've Never Been To Me" in 1976 she never dreamed that the song would still have a life today. It is one of those rare moments in pop music history where the song just keeps coming back around. Motown/Prodigal released it in 1977, it was a flop. It was later revived by Florida DJ Scott Shannon and went on to become a #1 hit all over the world. It came back around again in 1994 as the opening track in the indie film "The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert". When "Priscilla" was adapted into an Australian stage musical in 2006, CHARLENE performed the classic at the launch party ans all over Aussie TV. The song is also included in the production. Now with talks of the musical coming to the London stage and possibly the US soon after, CHARLENE has recorded a new version which will be released in the UK soon. The new track is a more upbeat take on the classic and features a mega worldwide superstar on the instrumental track. The track and superstar duet partner will be announced soon. Until then... here is a dance version that CHARLENE recorded a few years ago. ENJOY!
