Hi everyone! I hope your Tuesday is going well! Tuesdays are my day off from my day job so I’m very happy about that. I just have to buy groceries and work on a couple of freelance projects. I haven’t done a Romantic Tuesday post in awhile! Today I’m going with an old school song from 1978. Although many singers and bands have covered “Wishing on a Star,” it was originally sang by Rose Royce. The hit unfortunately wasn’t a big hit in the U.S. It peaked at number 52 on the R&B music charts. It reached number 3 on the U.K. music charts. “Wishing on a Star” is about a couple reuniting after breaking up.
After listening to different versions of the song, my favorite cover out of all of them is by Seal. He sang his version in 2011. Although I’m a big Jay-Z fan, I didn’t care for his version of the song at all. His wife Beyonce also sang her own version. I think it has a decent beat and sound to it but I still prefer Seal’s version. What do you think of this old school song? Which version do you prefer? Have a great day, everyone! I will be back Wednesday with a black and white photo challenge post.
