Get here - Oleta Adams

'Get here' was originally written and performed by Brenda Russell on her 1988 album of the same name.

The solo career of American singer Oleta Adams, who made a name for herself by working with the British band Tears for Fears, took off when she released her cover version of the song as a single in the autumn of 1990. It reached number 5 in the US Billboard Hot 100 chart, number 4 in the UK singles chart and number 27 in the Dutch Top 40.

Found: Melody Maker, Den Haag, November 10, 1990
Cost: 6 guilders
Tracks: 'Get here' / 'I've got to sing my song (live)'
