What’s that sexy Scotswoman formerly known as Sheena Shirley Orr up to? First, our Top 5 fondest Sheena memories (feel free to sing along!):
SNAKKLE FLASHBACK 1: Â 1980 HELLO, SHEENA!
Easton first appears on Great Britian’s The Big Time, a reality-type show about emerging artists.

SNAKKLE FLASHBACK 2: Â 1981 THE WORKING LIFE
“Morning Train” hits #1 on the U.S. Billboard chart. Called “9 to 5″ when first released in the U.K., it’s renamed â€śMorning Train (Nine to Five)â€ť so as not to be confused with Dolly Partonâ€™s hit.

SNAKKLE FLASHBACK 3: Â 1982 BOND GIRL
Easton’s Oscar-nominated James Bond theme song “For Your Eyes Only” is one of the most infectiously catchy in the history of the franchise. (Sorry, Madonna.) That same year, Easton wins a Grammy for Best New Artist.

SNAKKLE FLASHBACK 4: Â 1985 SHEâ€™S BAD?
“Sugar Walls” (written by Prince under the pseudonym Alexander Nevermind) reaches #1 on the U.S. Billboard hot dance chart, makes Tipper Gore’s “filthy fifteen” list of objectionable songs, and greatly upsets televangelist Jimmy Swaggart, who spends a lot of time criticizing the song on his TV show.

SNAKKLE FLASHBACK 5: Â 1987-1988 ON PRIME-TIME TV
Easton earns good reviews as Don Johnson’s love interest and then wife on Miami Vice, and ratings climb during her five-episode tenure on the show.

Sheena Easton’s balancing motherhood and performing. In the mid-’90s, between the second and third of her four marriages, she adopted a son, then a daughter. Her 2001 holiday letter announced her plan to leave L.A.: “You know that since my kids came along I have been trying to find ways to meld my two loves together and Las Vegas is one of the few places on earth that I can work and raise a family,” she wrote. Easton still lives outside Vegas with her now-teenaged children, taking on the occasional concert gig and voice-over job. In 2009 she did a guest turn singing “Happy Evil Love Song” on Disneyâ€™s fabulous Phineas and Ferb. She told The Arizona Republic, “Really, Iâ€™m the same as most parents. The difference is, two or three times a month Iâ€™ll be up onstage in the fancy dress and the high heels belting out my hits.”
