165 – Seal – Kiss From A Rose (1994)
Written by Seal
Produced by Trevor Horn
Label – ZTT/Warner Bros
A wonderful change of pace from Seal, as he explores decadent English chamber pop and folk. The near acapella breakdown effectively heightens the drama, but the whole song has a that dramatic ebb and flow, expertly helmed by Trevor Horn, particularly the stunning vocal arrangement and soaring strings. Far too good for the film it soundtracked.
