The Heart of Rock and Soul # 752 Terrence Trent D'Arby

'Sign Your Name was the deepest soul track on D'Arby's brash debut LP. D'Arby's music is classic black pop in a tradition that owes a lot to gospel and Motown, but also, like any post-disco pop music, pays close attention to current dance fashion. Still, his heart remains in his singing. 'Sign your name across my heart' serves as both invitation and warning; like Orbison, D'Arby knows love hurts but refuses to budge.'
