OLD SKOOL VIDEO SPOTLITE - Terence Trent D'Arby - "Wishing Well"

Terence Trent D'Arby should have had more commercial success. He won a Grammy, a Soul Train award, and had his debut album, Introducing the Hardline According to Terence Trent D'Arby, sell millions of records here and overseas. But, the commercial success didn't last too long as his next two albums, Neither Fish Nor Flesh (A Soundtrack of Love, Faith, Hope & Destruction) and Symphony or Damn, both failed to make a statement on the charts. The good news is that those albums were recieved well by critics unlike his most recent albums. "Wishing Well" was one of the songs I used to love hearing on the radio when I was younger. In a way I feel like Terence paved the way for artists like Darius Rucker and Anthony David to do what they do today. Maybe like the male counterpart to Tracy Chapman? Maybe. Either way, there is always room for songs like these on the radio because they are funky, catchy, and don't sound like everything else you hear. Big ups to TTD'A.
