There is a Lee Scratch Perry remix of this track… oh yeah.

I always liked him. I Wikipediaed him and it turns out he has a new name now, Sananda Maitreya, and records under that these days. I’m going to have to look up his new stuff. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Terence_Trent_D’Arby

Link, please? Video? Soundcloud?

Me too. Bubblegum pop to be sure, but good in the way that “Stop the love you save” was good.


#7

“Squeeze” - plus even more soulful vocals…


#8

so, what happened? perfect singing, dancing, handsome as hell; why was he only a thing for a few years? industry bullshit or was he on that dope? certainly got the frame of a boy-addict.


#9

I think his work got more eccentric and less easily accessible.


#10

He may have been bigger than the Beatles tho.


#11

Oh yeah, I forgot. He did have a huge ego, didn’t he?

Seems like a guy who does not play well with others.
