90's Guilty Pleasures #36: Seal "Kiss From A Rose" (1995)

The guilt:: Apparently, Seal's first album is supposed to be really good, but I've never heard it. So I'm in that group who have only heard "Crazy" and "Kiss From A Rose" and a bunch of shitty covers that were released as singles (like "Fly Like An Eagle" from the Space Jam soundtrack). So as far as I can tell, this is the type of stuff that falls into the same category as 90's Sting and 90's Peter Gabriel, a.k.a. "very boring made-for-parents soft-rock."

The pleasure:: This song is fucking hilarious. And the "Batman" version of the video was directed by Joel Schumacher himself, increasing lol potential. It's not a bad song by any means (aside from the horrible oboe... GOD I hate those things..) and it's fun as shit for singing along. Anyone for karaoke?
