Ahhh...how many afternoons did I spend singing my heart out: "Been around the world and I-eye-yiii, I can't find my babehhh, I don't know and I don't know whyyyyy, why he's gone away..." A lot of folks were shocked when Lisa Stansfield showed up on the scene with a sultry voice like a female Barry White, but with the looks of the Iowa girl next door. Well, maybe not Iowa - maybe more like a NYC Village gal. I definitely wouldn't have guessed she was British. Stansfield has also delved from time to time into recording a few jazz tracks.
Have I said yet how interesting it is that so many blue-eyed soul artists are from the UK? Does anyone have an opinion as to why?
Anyways, below is a fave track, "All Woman" and "Change". I started to include the MTV videos, but went the live route so you can see this woman holding her own (over 20 years) without auto-tune. Also, the classic 90s outfit made me laugh.
