A mysterious background and an exotic appeal have been the mainstays of the eclectic Amanda Lear’s career. She is also one of the few female artists to produce a concept album that rivals such fare as Alice Cooper’s From the Inside and the self-titled debut album from A Flock of Seagulls.
Lear’s second album, Sweet Revenge, detailed the adventures of a beauty who sells her soul to the devil for glitter and gold, but who eventually sacrifices all she has gained for love.
Done disco-style, the recording’s hit single, Follow Me, has become Lear’s signature number and details how the lord of darkness tempts the heroine of the piece into a life of sophisticated debauchery.
Until the next time – SWEET love and pink GRUE, Big Gay Horror Fan!
