I’m not sure what made me download the best of Terence Trent D’Arby recently, perhaps it was his song “Wishing Well” that was on 702 Classics. Either way, it brought back memories of 1987, when this song was big on the radio. Even today, it oozes coolness, and the stylish music video, filmed partly in black and white, with Terence singing into an old school microphone, is apt for this song.
D’Arby’s debut solo album, Introducing the Hardline According to Terence Trent D’Arby, released in July 1987, is his best-known commercial work. The album produced the hits “If you let me stay”, Wishing Well”, “Dance little sister” and “Sign your name.”
