DOLLAR were a pop vocal duo from the UK, consisting of David Van Day and Canadian-born Thereza Bazar.
Thereza Bazar and David Van Day met at 17 when they successfully auditioned for the cabaret act ‘Guys 'n' Dolls’. The group enjoyed a number of hit singles in the mid-1970s and during this time David became romantically involved with Thereza. By 1977, the group was in decline and the pair complained about the choice of material and musical direction. Van Day decided to quit the band to embark on a solo career while Bazar would continue with ‘Guys n' Dolls’ to earn a living for them both. The group's management were unhappy with the situation and sacked Bazar with the reasoning that a six-piece group consisting of three couples would now look odd with five members. With the change in circumstances, the pair decided to begin a career as a duo. They were picked up by the French label Carrere Records, going under the name DOLLAR. Between 1978 and 1987 the duo were very successful, achieving ten UK top 40 singles, including the top ten hits "Love's Gotta Hold On Me" (1979), "I Wanna Hold Your Hand" (1979), "Mirror Mirror" (1981), "Give Me Back My Heart" and "Videotheque" (1982), and "O L'amour" (1987).
