SHREM'S LIST OBSESSION: Top 10 Best Neneh Cherry Tracks

It's 18 year that we've been waiting for Neneh Cherry's new studio album for!!! Now that "Blank Project" is finally out and just 4 days before her most anticipated come-back gig here in Twisted Pepper, Dublin courtesy of the ever so reliable Bodytonic crew, it's a rather fitting opportunity to go over the Swedish singer's vibrant and versatile back catalogue once more... Here's my personal very subjective (as always!) selection of her best tracks to date. The rumour says she does not perform any of her old stuff during this tour but if she did, any of the songs below would be a massive treat for a long-term fans like myself.

10 "Together Now" - with Tricky, originally taken from Tricky's "Nearly God" concept album (1996) then included on Neneh's 3rd studio album "Man"

09 "Trout" - with Michael Stipe, taken from "Homebrew" (1992)

08 "Inna City Mamma" - 5th single taken from "Raw Like Sushi" (1989)

07 "Peace Of Mind" - taken from "Homebrew" (1992)

06 "Move With Me" - taken from "Homebrew" (1992)

05 "Buffalo Stance" - debut single, taken from "Raw Like Sushi" (1988)

04 "Somedays" - written and produced by Portishead's Geoff Barrow, taken from "Homebrew" (1992)

03 "I Ain't Gone Under Yet" - produced by Gang Starr, taken from "Homebrew" (1992)

02 "I've Got U Under My Skin" - Cherry's interpretation of Cole Porter's 1936 classic, taken from "Red, Hot + Blue" compilation (1990)

01 "Manchild" - 2nd single taken from "Raw Like Sushi" (1989)
