In their charming kitchen sessions, Toyah Willcox and Robert Fripp, the co-founder of King Crimson, have just unveiled their latest creation in the Sunday Lunch cover catalog.
This time, they’ve infused their unique creativity into Bon Jovi’s iconic song, “You Give Love a Bad Name,” originally released in 1986 as the lead single from the album Slippery When Wet. The setting is delightfully casual yet filled with whimsy, as Fripp strums away on the guitar with a lighthearted arrow headpiece, and Willcox dances around in a red bow and a playful maid’s costume.
The duo injects their own delightful quirkiness into the classic lyrics, passionately singing “Shot through the heart/ And you’re to blame/ Darlin’, you give love a bad name,” before Willcox adds an extra touch of fun with a confetti cannon.
The Sunday Lunch musical sessions initially emerged during the challenging days of the COVID-19 pandemic and have since become a cherished Sunday afternoon tradition. Over the past few years, Fripp and Willcox have explored a diverse range of musical styles, covering artists as varied as Metallica and Radiohead. Their journey even took them to the prestigious Glastonbury stage earlier in 2023.
Following their Glastonbury appearance, the dynamic duo took the Sunday Lunch tour, treating audiences across the United Kingdom to their musical magic throughout October. The tour featured memorable stops at iconic venues such as London Shepherd’s Bush Empire and Manchester Salford Lowry.
Hints About Upcoming ‘Sunday Lunch’ Film
In an interview with Eonmusic, Willcox hinted at the possibility of a Sunday Lunch feature film. She shared:
“We have a documentary crew following us, and we have quite a big production company scripting an idea at the moment.”
Willcox clarified that while they wouldn’t be the stars of the film, as it’s designed for actors, the project is currently in the pre-production stages, stirring anticipation among fans and followers of their endearing Sunday tradition.
