Rachael Sage: Too Many Women (single)

~ Wednesday, 14 October 2009
Taken from her 2003 Public Record album, this song is featured in the soundtrack of the remake of the 80's film Fame, and hand picked by the director no less. Those of us still traumatised by the site of Leroy resplendent in lycra and leg warmers from the original film will be surprised to find that this mellow little ditty is not what we would expect to find on the movie's soundtrack.

The comparisons with Tori Amos are inevitable on this piano driven slice of art pop. Sage has a pleasant voice and great interpretation, but as her new album Chandelier proves, her music has moved on little since Too Many Women was recorded.

The exposure that she will gain from the film may push her into the public gaze, but she may struggle to stay there.
