Tiffany Worlds Away

FRESH: ‘Worlds Away’ – Tiffany

She’s back! 80’s teen superstar singer Tiffany returns with a new single and a new album

“And then you put your arms around me, and we tumble to the ground and then you say…” You all know the rest! That was 1987. Sixteen year old Tiffany Darwish donned a rather large jumper and went to sing in a shopping mall. It did the trick. She topped the US and UK singles chart and a star was born. Thirty years on and Tiffany is back with a new single “Worlds Away” (click the image above to hear it) and a new album.

Tiffany made her music debut in 1981 at the age of 10! She later appeared on Star Search, a US talent show, aged 15. She came second in the final of that year’s series. But it wasn’t until 1987 that she signed to MCA Records and began recording professionally. Her debut single “Danny” was released in the Spring of ’87 but failed to chart. It was her cover of Tommy James and The Shondells 1967 US No.4 hit “I Think We’re Alone Now” that would gain a far wider audience. The song would top the US singles chart later that year as well as in many other countries, eventually reaching No.1 in the UK in January 1988, selling millions the world over and making Tiffany the latest, hottest property.

She continued that success with “Could’ve Been” (US No.1, UK No.4) and her version of The Beatles “I Saw Him Standing There” (US No.7, UK No.8). Her debut album “Tiffany” topped the US charts and sold over four million copies and seven million globally. Her 1988 follow-up “Hold An Old Friends Hand” fared less well, reaching No.17 in the US and No.56 in the UK. It contained the singles “All This Time” (US No.6, UK No.47) and “Radio Romance” (US No.35, UK No.13). Since then Tiffany has continued to record but with hardly any commercial success. Her 1990 album “New Inside” failed to chart in her home country as did “Dreams Never Die” (1993), “The Colour Of Silence” (2000) and “Dust Off And Dance” (2005).

She went to Nashville in 2011 to record the album “Rose Tattoo” and released her last album “A Million Miles” in 2016. Away from music, Tiffany has appeared in a number of TV shows and films including voicing Judy Jetson in The Jetsons movie of 1990 and starring in the 2010 sci-fi/horror film ‘Mega Piranha’. “Worlds Away” is a superb soft rock anthem with power vocals and awash with a backdrop of electric guitars. It’s taken from her forthcoming tenth studio album “Pieces Of Me”, due out in September. To date Tiffany has sold over fifteen million albums worldwide, and it looks like that figure will be added to with this sensational (and welcome) return of an 80’s icon.

“Worlds Away” is out on August 31st, “Pieces Of Me” is available from September 21st

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
