Sleeping with the Past is the 22nd studio album by the English singer-songwriter Elton John, released on 29 August 1989. It is his best-selling album in Denmark (where it was recorded) and is dedicated to his longtime writing partner Bernie Taupin. The album features his first solo number-one single, "Sacrifice", in his home country of the UK, which helped the album also hit number one there, his first since 1974's Elton John's Greatest Hits

However, longtime fans of Elton John loved the album and deem it to be one of his best from the 1980s, often vying with 1983's Too Low for Zero as John's strongest album of the decade. After peaking at in October 1989 on the UK Albums Chart, the re-release of "Sacrifice" as a double A-side with "Healing Hands" in June 1990, and that single's rise to the spot, Sleeping with the Past was propelled back up the position on the UK Albums Chart shortly afterwards.

Album Sleeping with the Past. Sleeping With The Past Lyrics. Like a thief he's come, like a thief he's gone He's stolen your tears one by one You're proud to love him, it's a foolish sign You're a broken heart at the scene of the crime And the night drags on, and the fever burns Come to your senses, everybody learns You sleep in sweet fire.

The title track from Elton John's 1989 album "Sleeping with the Past. The liner notes to the album state: "These songs were inspired by the Soul Pioneers of the Sixties and Seventies, whose music meant so much to us. EJ and B. The songs were written and recorded at Puk Studios in Denmark, Taupin listening to R & B music for inspiration while he wrote. Influences included Sam Cooke, Jackie Wilson, The Drifters, Aretha Franklin, Marvin Gaye, Otis Redding, Stevie Wonder, Percy Sledge, and Ray Charles

Sleeping With the Past has been added to your Cart. First you had Elton John Greatest Hits in 1974, Greatest Hits in 1976 and then Greatest Hits in 1987 so you would think the next logical step would be to release Greatest Hits right? Wrong. All of Elton's 1980s albums had some good cuts, some albums better than others and this one even though it's a sleepy little album does seem like he's trimmed down some of the unnecessary glossy production and laid down some real tunes. Let's just call this one of Elton's essential albums of the 1980s.
