Biography

Three artists share this name: a Scottish group, an American rock band, and an American Doo Wop group.

1) The Chimes were a successful dance music trio from Scotland, featuring vocalist Pauline Henry (born 29 January 1961) with Mike Peden and James Locke. They are best known for their hits “Heaven” and a remake of U2’s “I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For,” which became a UK Top Ten hit. In the U.S. they reached the Billboard Hot 100 with the song “1-2-3,” at #86 in 1990. It spent two weeks at #1 on the Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart, and its follow-up, “Heaven,” was a #1 dance chart hit.

Bono from U2 famously commented that the Chimes’ cover of their hit “I Still Haven’t Found What Im Looking For” was the “only cover version he had heard that he enjoyed and did the original justice”, adding “at last someone’s come along to sing it properly”.

2) The Chimes were an 80s American rock band formed in Cleveland featured on the post-punk compilation ‘From The Eerie Shore’.

3) An American Doo Wop group that recorded in the 1950’s. They are best known for their song “Once In A While”.

    An album not recognised enough for the brilliance that it is. Bono apparently said that the version of 'I still haven't found what I'm looking for' was one of the best he's heard. Praise indeed.

    Heaven still sounds as fantastic as it did back in the day - Pauline Henry should've had wayyy more success than she did - a true soul diva voice, and a really nice person, too. *LOVE*
