Raffish was een Nederlandse meidengroep die ontstond in het RTL4-programma Popstars: The Rivals, dat Idols opvolgde. De leden waren Sharon Doorson, Esri Dijkstra, Eva Simons, Lianne van Groen en Nora Dalal.


In de finale nam Raffish het op tegen de boyband Men2, met als uiteindelijke doel op nummer 1 staan met Kerst in 2004. Op 25 december komen de jongens op 1 binnen in de Top 40 met Bigger Than That, terwijl Raffish met Plaything debuteert op nummer 3.



De jongens winnen daarmee het programma, maar meteen de week erop verdringt Raffish Men2B van de eerste plaats en Plaything zou uiteindelijk een grotere hit worden.

Eva Simons en Sharon Doorson scoorden later solo verschillende hits. Lianne van Groen werd als Li-Ann de vrouwelijke helft van de jarennegentigformatie Twenty 4 Seven.



Songtekst

Johnny was a girl Everybody Knew,
Didn't give a damn just passing trough
Had a kind of dream back when she was 12
Knew that she belong somewhere else

Wasn't into drugs, wasn't into much
Guess she was blessed with a special touch
Kept it to herself, Hid it all away
Bag already packed ready for today yeah

She is on a place
Counting days
And it won't be long now

Down by the station there's you
See what a ticket can do
Big dreams and nobody knows
Thursday's Child so far to go
You wanna fly with the stars
Find out who you really are
Hang out with someone who knows
Thursday's Child got far to go

Now she's got a place even got a few
Made a little home she can run back to

Working for a dime Working all the time
But she wouldn't changed a single thing

She's nearly there
She's not scared
Cause It Won't Be Long Now

Down by the station there's you
See what a ticket can do
Big dreams and nobody knows
Thursday's Child so far to go
You wanna fly with the stars
Find out who you really are
Hang out with someone who knows
Thursday's Child got far to go

Don't ever let nobody step you do it
Whatever it is you wanna do
Be a little braver a little crazy
Do what you feel
Cause It Wont Be Long

She's Leaving
Thursday's Child so far to go
( yes you, yes you, yes you)
You wanna fly with the stars
Find out who you really are
Hang out with someone who knows
(you wanna fly with the stars, nobody knows)
Thursday's Child got far to go
Thursday's Child got far to go

Johnny was a girl Everybody Knew,
Didn't give a damn just passing trough
Johnny was a girl Everybody Knew,
Didn't give a damn just passing trough
Johnny was a girl.
