Song of the Day: Swing Out Sister, “Am I The Same Girl”

Today’s assignment is to find a love song from 1992, so I’ve chosen Swing Out Sister’s 1992 cover of "Am I The Same Girl." It was written by Eugene Record and Sonny Sanders and originally recorded by Barbara Acklin in 1968, Young-Holt Unlimited recorded an instrumental version of the song called "Soulful Strut" by stripping Barbara’s vocals and replacing them with a piano solo. Swing Out Sister’s cover reached #1 on the Adult Contemporary chart and #45 on the Hot 100, #5 in Canada, and #1 on the Euro Dance chart.

  1. I enjoyed listening to this and can’t believe it came out in 1992 because there is an actual orchestra with horns and everything! Her outfit..Holy Emma Peel, Batman!


    1. Corinne Drewery, the singer, is very fashion-oriented. In fact, her description on Wikipedia is singer-songwriter and fashion designer. They do use synthesizers as well, but it’s not all her singing and him playing a synthesizer.


  2. I haven’t herd this one before that I know of, but it does seem to be a little like one of those songs I would hear on the radio but not really listen to, just background music.
