Deborah Harry ‎– Strike Me Pink (Picture Disc 12″)

Picked this up the other day, saw Anne Dudley’s (Art Of Noise) name on the back and didn’t even know it was Deborah Harry (Well I’m sure she had blonde hair last time I looked!)

From 1993 and definitely in the category of faded 80’s star trying to rekindle a career.This was the second and final single from her 1993 album “Debravation”. A slow burner and very like Cyndi Lauper’s “Time After Time” and a slower Pet Shop Boys tracks in terms of mood and probably her best solo work that the record buying public ignored. Two more solo tracks are here; the Chris Stein produced instrumental cover of Nino Rota’s, “8 1/2 Rhumba” Cha-Cha-Cha but a bit of a weird choice. A previous minor hit from 1989, “Sweet and Low” is here, pure synthpop and remixed by Arthur Baker!
