Happy Birthday Stephen Duffy.

Stephen Duffy is a British songwriter, vocalist and guitarist. He has recorded as a solo act under several different names, and is the lead singer for the group The Lilac Time. He has also co-written many songs with Steven Page of Barenaked Ladies.

While attending Birmingham Polytechnic school, he and school friend John Taylor formed an obscure, arty new romantic group called Duran Duran, along with Taylor's non-student friend Nick Rhodes. Duffy was the lyricist and vocalist but left both the school and the band in 1979, well before their 1980 signing with EMI.

In 1982, he created the band Tin Tin who signed with WEA Records in the UK and released the song "Kiss Me," which went to #155 on the UK chart.

The song was re-released on Feb. 25, 1985. It debuted at Number 22, peaked at Number 3, and stayed in the UK top 10 for three months. It was the last song played on the medium wave service of Radio 1 before it became an FM only station on Jul. 1, 1994.
