Revisiting The Hard Line

On the way to Girl Scouts tonight, I introduced the my girls to Terence Trent D’Arby’s fantastic first album “Introducing the Hard Line According to Terence Trent D’Arby.”  The ride is short so all they got was an intro to five or so songs…the three big hits, Sign Your Name (Top 10 on Billboard’s Hot 100), Wishing Well (Number 1 on Billboard’s Hot 100), and Dance Little Sister (Top 40 on Billboard’s Hot 100), as well as a couple of the others that I really like:  As Yet Untitled, If You All Get To Heaven.  Both of these last two are moving, emotion-filled songs that hearken back to the days of Negro SpiritualsAs Yet Untitled is a raw, a capella style while If You All Get To Heaven has a more modern, rock sound.  In truth, there’s not a song on the album that I don’t like.

Enjoy videos of his three biggest hits…
