This T'Pau, however, was a British pop group from the mid-80's who had one hit in this country. In fact, only two of their three albums - not their 2nd! - were released in the States. Yes, I have the 2nd album, and yes, I had to go to Canada to get it. Their sound, thanks to lead vocalist Carol Decker, had the ability to be both soft and hard-edged. This particular song, their biggest (and only) US hit, reached #4 on both the US and UK charts.
And for some reason, I've always loved this song. So hopefully, you love it, too!
