Every time I hear the sound of
People dancing close together
Where the moonlight finds the crowd
And when you know there's
No place better

I love the way you move

There's a boy who throws his head back
To the rhythm when he's dancing
And I can see that every joy
And every sorrow flows
Right through him

If I could only change my ways
To move the way you move

If I could only change my ways
To move the way you move

When I think back to the nights
I lose myself among the shadows
When I think back to those nights
I almost lost myself to you

So show me now and tell me how
Cos I love the way you move

I love the way you move
I love the way you move
I love the way you move

Oh wow. I bought an album of hers, Twist in My Sobriety, in like 1989 or something like that. Haven't been aware of her since then, but I loved that album! Looking forward to exploring this newer one.

 
Thanks for posting - I remember that song and I didn't realize it was the same person.  Will explore for sure.
Haven't heard anything from her in ages, really glad to hear this now. Will check out the new CD.

  Try "Don't Turn Your Back On Me" from the same album, "Closer to the People".  It is wonderful also.


Such a rad song! Her voice is... wow! As others have mentioned, this one really grows on ya! Wicked segue into Santana there, COOL
Look and fell like Jem "They" from "Finaly Woken"

I agree! up graded to a 9.
I dig this one. I hear a similar melody from Sting "La Belle Dame Sans Regrets" (Sting, Dominic Miller) This one grows on you for sure.

Always welcome new music from Tanita.

Check the date. Can't get more fresh!

 
she said "more of her recent work," not "her more recent work."

the music at the end had a little Melancholy Hill from the Gorillaz feel to it.

Still a great voice, and a nice song.

Here some of the sax from "In these Shoes?" can't remember that female singers name.

 
Kirsty MacColl, who was tragically killed by a motor boat while scuba diving, in 2000.

The late great Kirsty MacColl.

Only her 2nd tune on RP.

This is actually rather good, I think.
Perfect Friday afternoon 

thank you! 
beautiful voice imo  : )
If moving from Munster to Basingstoke gets you this fine amalgam, count me in.

Wonderful, subtle nostalgic feel. Welcome to middle age Tanita.
