7 April 2012 - T'Pau - Heart and Soul

T'Pau was a Vulcan who turned down her position on the Federation Council.  That's about all the Star Trek you're going to get out of me.

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!
