Tears Run Rings – Marc Almond


Marc Almond

Year: 1988
Artist: Marc Almond
Hit Song: Bitter Sweet
Album: Stars We Are

I have high respect for singers who just don’t sing but also write and conceive melody for their songs as well, for me that’s pure talent. Having a great voice is a dime a dozen but for performers who achieved multiplatinum status for formulating their own sound is a real class act.

Peter Mark Sinclair Almond or Marc Almond, shot to fame as the other half of the synth duo Soft Cell and produced the UK #1 hit ‘Tainted Love’. For band with high commercial success there’s always this pattern for the most talented individual to go astray and test the waters so in 1983 he went solo and delivered his best songs ever- Tears Run Ring and Bitter Sweet.

“For me it always comes down to what is a good song and I’m very old fashioned in the way that I like to make songs that have something classic about them whether you can play them with an orchestra or an electro synthesizer or an acoustic guitar.”- Marc Almond
