  • Originally released in 1990, SOME PEOPLE'S LIVES continues Bette Midler's move away from campy diva and toward sincere adult-contemporary crooner. As usual with Midler, the ballads are standouts, and the album's single "From a Distance" and the stirring title track are cases in point. The repertoire is varied, including uptempo groovers ("One More Round"), standards ("Miss Otis Regrets"), and contemporary fare (Diane Warren's "Moonlight Dancing"). The production is a bit overwrought at times, but Midler's vocal performances are powerful throughout.
Professional Reviews
Stereo Review (1/91) - "Her first non-soundtrack album in nearly eight years ...Midler returns to the kind of middle ground she inhabits best, a musical arena in which she can be free to be both emotional and campy without crossing the line into excessive sentimentality."
