10. Tanita Tikaram – “The Sweet Keeper”

EASTWEST – charted at #3 on February 4th 1990

“Ancient Heart” was my first cassette album. I got it with a Walkman for Christmas and so I listened to it over and over again.

The smoky deep voice is there, the Argent/Van Hooke influence is there and the songs are nice enough, with lead single “We Almost Got It Together” the best thing on it but I remember he as much more dour than this album shows.

She’s now 50 and still performing and recording but she’s also one of the greatest Twitter users because she shares some utterly beautiful art on a nearly daily basis @tanita_tikaram

FACT : Her great uncle was the world’s longest serving ombudsman!

65 – Alexei Sayle didn’t like her, but I did.
