In praise of Martika (and Prince)

We run a cosy pub disco every month, and on Friday my colleague played Electric Youth by Debbie Gibson, which has aged much better than I ever would have thought. Hearing it made me think of all the now missing-in-action female singers from that time, like Taylor Dayne and Taja Sevelle. Then I remembered Martika, and in particular the single Love Thy Will Be Done, which is one of those Prince songs that he gifted to another artist (like Manic Monday and I Feel For You). I think it's every bit as good as Nothing Compares 2 U, without all the emotional showing off. I'm not sure that the video is holding up so well though.
