Seal “Kiss From A Rose”

“Kiss from a Rose” was written in 1987, several years prior to the release of Seal’s eponymous debut album from 1991. After writing the song, Seal felt “embarrassed by it” and “threw the tape in the corner.” Seal did not present it to producer Trevor Horn until the recording sessions for Seal II.

In 2015, Seal said of the song: “To be honest, I was never really that proud of it, though I like what Trevor did with the recording. He turned that tape from my corner into another 8 million record sales and my name became a household name.”

“Kiss from a Rose” was the second single taken from the Batman Forever film soundtrack, and topped the US Billboard Hot 100 for one week in August 1995. It also went to number four on the UK Singles Chart, where it had originally reached number 20 in 1994. It also was nominated for the MTV Movie Award for Best Song from a Movie in the 1996 edition.

    1. Seal is classy, he has style and an amazing voice. What a nice promotional package he is. Definitely, he sees the rewards of his efforts in opportunities and fan responses. Thanks kindly for your feedback USFMAN! 👌☕️☕️

    1. Yep! It was very scary. The ANTIFA and BLM “protesters” burned flags, spit in people’s faces and attempted to thrown them off the balcony, and pummeled an undercover police officer, but of course, the media portrayed it as a “mostly peaceful protest”, and even that, they barely covered at all. These are the SCARIEST times I have ever experienced.

    2. Movie theaters, concerts or political events or controversial events are not as they used to be. Nope! These are strange times. But how nice it is that we have the capacities to hold onto good memories thru books, music, movies and wonderful foods as yours. But one day the cyber balloon is going to burst and we will land back on earth. What a big reality that’s going to be.

    1. Hi there DC! You sure have a big music and dance background. I only ballroom danced on special occasions. But I did! I remember those great days. There were ballrooms at every urban locale. Then came the decline (the late 1970s/1980). One of the big comeback was Dancing With the Stars. Some how remember Seal dancing but facts prove that he was a singing talent only! Seal is awesome really! I enjoy his singing!❤️💕❤️
