NHT047: TANITA TIKARAM – Love Story
Welcome to this weeks NEVER HEARD THAT.
When a 19-year-old TANITA TIKARAM released her debut album, ANCIENT HEART in 1988, it was a stunning success throughout the world. Its curious mix of commercial and alternative tracks resulted in millions of sales.
Making her a bona-fide star, it must have been difficult to work out what next.
What I most admire is that she stayed true to original vision and did not play it safe. Her second record THE SWEET KEEPER continued to push what was acceptable in the commercial realm.
When I listen to this song Love Story, I just can’t see any contemporary pop starlet ever being so brave.
Have a listen and see what you think.
I hope that you enjoy this weeks NEVER HEARD THAT.
Cheers, Andrew Muecke
