is the second solo album by Ingénue k.d. lang, released in 1992. It has more of a cabaret flavor than Lang's previous work, and was her most successful album on the pop charts both in her native Canada and internationally. [9 ]
The samba-inspired "Miss Chatelaine" was ironic;
is a Canadian women's magazine which once chose lang as its "Woman of the Year", and the song's video depicted lang — who was usually best known for a fairly Chatelaine androgynous appearance — in an exaggeratedly feminine manner, surrounded by bright pastel colours and a profusion of bubbles reminiscent of a performance on the Lawrence Welk show, complete with an accordion in the instrumentation.
The multi-format hit single "
Constant Craving" inspired (albeit subconsciously) The Rolling Stones' 1997 single " Anybody Seen My Baby?", from their album, with the result that the Stones gave writing credits on that song to lang and her collaborator Bridges to Babylon Ben Mink.
Both "Save Me" and "Still Thrives This Love" were used in the 2003
Showtime film . Soldier's Girl
