But it does surprise me that Glenda Jackson's [italic]Women in Love[/italic] co-star has had a singing career. (No answer with that one.)
"Magic"...so hypnotic and the best thing about the movie it came from.
I loved Magic - particularly when she ponies around on the stage.
She was 1980 perfection. Gorgeous girl before plastic surgery.
No one back then ever would have guessed she was Jewish because of her look.
The correct answer is: "The Rumour," by Elton John and Bernie Taupin.
It should have been a huge hit, but just before she was about to promote it she got the breast cancer diagnosis and had to have surgery.
R45 - People were tired of Olivia's sexy image by that point. And since Madonna was red hot at the time Soul Kiss came out, she amped up the sex even more. Plus she was pregnant at the time so there wasn't much promotion. I don't think it would've helped as the album as a whole is a clunker anyways.
Soul Kiss is actually one of my favorite tracks of hers. I wish it would have done better. I read somewhere that it was originally offered to Tina Turner, but she passed on it.
Maybe not quite my favorite and certainly one of the most unknown in her discography but at least it was written by none other by Olivia herself and is such a soothing ballad: the Promise (the Dolphin Song)
She was absolutely in her full bloom as a woman, pregnant or not, in that Soul Kiss video. I think it was the best she ever looked. That slight added baby weight filled out her face nicely.
What I really liked about her was she wasn't afraid to change her style. A lot of female singers of her time stuck with the haircut they had when they first became famous. Olivia rarely had the same style from one year to the next. She was always changing it up.
It was really her video special for Soul Kiss that did her in. Specifically the video for Toughen Up. I remember watching it in Jr. High. It was actually on the news the next morning that Olivia went topless. Of course it was topless from behind but they were still aghast. They didn't want her to be a full grown sexy woman in her early 40s. Maybe late 30s? Not sure.
Here's the image that did it.
Actually, I don't like most of her post Grease work.
I think her best song is "The Right Moment" from the "Soul Kiss" album. In fact, I think that whole album was overlooked and it was one of her best.
[quote]Did "Soul Kiss" kill her career?
No. The "Soul Kiss" album reached the Top 30 and the title track reached the Top 20 (her last Top 20 hit to date). While not as big as past albums, it certainly didn't kill her career. What killed her career was not recording or doing any kind of touring for the next three years. By the time she released "The Rumour", she was old and her sound was dated since New Jack Swing & Freestyle was popular by the late 80's.
"O Come, All Ye Faithful" - her duet with Elvis
A YouTube search indicates some of you are REALLLLLLYYYYY O-L-D.
I spelled that last bit since you're also prolly hard of hearing. In which case, that too explains your fascination with awful singers. No! Put down that Madonna CD Gramps!
There are too many to choose from. XANADU, SAM, DEEPER THAN THE NIGHT.... And I really like her version of JOLENE.
She nailed Don't Cry for Me Argentina. Madonna's version pales in comparison. A Little More Love and Deeper Than the Night as well as You're the One that I Want are highlights of her career as well.
ONJ? Whew! Talk about the BRONZE AGE!! And horrible musical tastes to boot!
I Honestly Love You ... it takes me back to my high school days
R59, A search of the English language shows that prolly is not an actual word.
