Oleta Adams – Get Here

“Get Here” is a pop ballad written by American singer/songwriter Brenda Russell: the title track of her 1988 album Get Here. It was while Oleta Adams was visiting Stockholm that she heard Russell’s song playing in a record store and was sufficiently impressed with the song to record it for her 1990 album Circle of One. Adams’ version of “Get Here” was issued as a single in early 1991. World events at this time gave the song a resonance as an anthem for the US troops in the Gulf War – underscored by the lyrics: “You can reach me by caravan/ Cross the desert like an Arab man” – which sent Adams’ single into the Top Ten of the Billboard Hot 100 in the spring of 1991.
