Lost '80s Pop Classic Week: "Twist In My Sobriety" Tanita Tikaram (1988)

Tanita Tikaram was all of 19 years old when she recorded this song. But she had the voice and words of someone far beyond her age. This was from her apropos titled album Ancient Heart.

But being 19 and singing material this far advanced probably created a bit of an uncomfortable match. Her follow up albums reflected a more pop direction, which didn't sit well with American fans expecting another "Twist In My Sobriety".

She still performs and records and has a new album out, Can't Go Back. This is her new single "Dust On My Shoes".....

  1. Love, love, love this track! I had it on an album back in the 80s which also included "Mandinka" by Sinead O'Connor, "Luka" by Suzanne Vega, a track by Ofra Haza, and many more female alt rock tracks. The album began to skip after about 25 years of play, and I have never been able to find it on CD or cassette (or another LP copy for that matter). To be honest, I played that album religiously, but I cannot remember the name of it to save my soul.
