TaraElla Original 2014 - Not That Kind of Retro

The inspiration for this came from several things. One of which was a discussion with a friend several months ago about one of my favourite pop artists, who was a more traditionally inclined person.

This song is now available at the TaraElla Google Play shop.

Cause there's something better for us

Sounds too good to be true,
But when you look closer you'll see the reality,
