Amerikaanse soulzangeres, pianist, geboren op 4 mei 1962 in Seattle, Washington, als jongste dochter van een dominee. Doet haar eerste muzikale ervaring op in het kerkkoor van haar vader. Groeit op in Yakima, Washington.



Eind jaren tachtig wordt Oleta Adams ontdekt door Roland Orzabal en Curt Smith van de Britse popband Tears for Fears wanneer ze een concert geeft in de Hyatt Regency Lounge in Kansas City, Missouri.



Adams speelt een belangrijke rol op hun album The Seeds of Love. Ze doet de vrouwelijke vocalen van Woman in Chains [Fontana 876 248-7] in 1989.



Op de albumtrack Badman’s Song neemt ze de piano en zang voor haar rekening, maar ook op de Standing on the Corner of the Third World neemt Oleta plaats achter de piano en gaat mee op The Seeds of Love wereldtournee in 1990.

Songtekst

I can't light no more of your darkness
All my pictures seem to fade to black and white
I'm growing tired, time stands still before me
Frozen here on the ladder of my life

Too late to save myself from falling
I took a chance and changed your way of life
But you misread my meaning when I met you
Closed the door and left me blinded by the light

Don't let the sun go down on me
(Don't let the sun)
Although I search myself, it's always someone else I see
I'd just allow a fragment of your life to wander free
(Don't let the sun)
But losing everything is like the sun going down on me

I can't find, oh, the right romantic line
But see me once, see the way I feel
Don't discard me just because you think I mean you harm
But these cuts I have, oh, they need love, help them heal

Don't let the sun go down on me
(Don't let the sun)
Although I search myself, it's always someone else I see
I'd just allow a fragment of your life to wander free
(Don't let the sun)
But losing everything is like the sun going down on me

Don't let the sun go down on me
Although I searched myself, it's always someone else I see
I'd just allow a fragment of your life to wander free
Losing everything is like the sun going down on me

Losing everything is like the sun going down on me
