RAINDANCING - Alison Moyet
TRACK LISTING: Is This Love, Stay, Glorious Love, When I Say (No Giveaway), Blow Wind Blow, Weak in the Presence of Beauty, Ordinary Girl, You Got Me Wrong, Without You, Sleep Like Breathing
IMPRESSIONS: In 1987, I fell in love with this bit of pop perfection. It didn't hurt that Alison Moyet guest-starred on an entire episode of FRENCH & SAUNDERS where she not only performed "Ordinary Girl" but also acted throughout most of it (and she was quite funny). I believe I first got the album on vinyl and then promptly bought it on cassette which I played to death back in the day. Of course, when I finally got around to getting a cd player, I immediately bought it on compact disc as well. The only thing missing was 8-track. RAINDANCING is simply one of my favourite 80s albums.
MY FAVOURITE TRACKS: Is This Love, Stay, Glorious Love, Blow Wind Blow, Weak in the Presence of Beauty, Ordinary Girl, Sleep Like Breathing
GUEST ARTISTS: David Freeman (vocals on "Sleep Like Breathing")
FACT SHEET: RAINDANCING is Alison Moyet's second album. "Is This Love?" was co-written by Alison Moyet and Dave Stewart (under his Jean/Manu Guiot pseudonym). The original UK version of the album had the songs in a different running order. "Sleep Like Breathing" duet partner David Freeman is from the band "The Lover Speaks".
