LISA STANSFIELD : All Around The World
While the rest of the pop world was stuck smack bang in the middle of the PWL and Italo House era, Lisa Stansfield was doing something rather different. She was belting out super-smooth soul classics like the timeless ‘All Around The World’.
A No.1 hit in her homeland, a top five hit in the US and a top ten success here in Australia, ‘All Around The World’ was way ahead of its time – a modern-day soul classic that spoke of a lost love and the hope of one day finding him.
The video is like a slice of the time – super-slicked hair pieces on Lisa’s pale face, super colourful lipstick and eye make-up and some black and white imagery thrown in for good measure.
As for Lisa in the noughties… well it’s been WAY too long since her last album.
