Dollar were a pop vocal duo from the UK, consisting of David Van Day and Canadian-born Thereza Bazar. The duo were successful in the late 1970s and 1980s, achieving ten UK top 40 singles.

Dollar’s first single, “Shooting Star”, was released in late 1978 and reached number 14 in the UK Singles Chart. Their self-penned ballad “Love’s Gotta Hold on Me” was sung by Bazar and climbed to number 4 in the UK chart.


The group released their debut album, Shooting Stars, which made the top 40.


In 1980, the duo decided to write and produce all the songs for their second album. The album, along with its singles, failed to sell well. It is said that, in a bid to generate sales, Van Day and Bazar announced their engagement, but this was later revealed to be a publicity stunt.

In 1981 the duo began a collaboration with producer Trevor Horn. This partnership gave them another two Top 10 singles (“Mirror Mirror” and “Give Me Back My Heart”) and two more Top 20 hits (“Videotheque” and “Hand Held in Black and White”).

Dollar decided to part company in 1983 with them both citing a desire to pursue solo careers. Neither member of the duo enjoyed the same kind of success as solo artists as they had had as Dollar, and by 1986, they had reformed and released more music. After tensions in the recording studio escalated, the couple retired the band in 1988.
