T'Pau Soundboard

T'Pau is not a movie or television show, but rather a band that emerged in the 1980s in the United Kingdom. Best known for their hit song "China in Your Hand," T'Pau achieved significant success and gained a dedicated fanbase during the mid to late 1980s.

Formed in 1986, T'Pau was led by vocalist Carol Decker and guitarist Ron Rogers. The band's unique name was derived from the Vulcan high priestess T'Pau, who appeared in the popular television series Star Trek. The addition of Carol's powerful vocals and Ron's expert guitar skills created a distinctive sound that set T'Pau apart from their contemporaries.

In 1987, T'Pau released their debut album "Bridge of Spies," featuring their breakthrough single "Heart and Soul." The song quickly climbed the charts, reaching the top of the UK Singles Chart, and also achieved success in the United States. With its catchy melodies and energetic performance, "Heart and Soul" solidified T'Pau as a force to be reckoned with in the pop music scene.

However, it was their second single, "China in Your Hand," that became their biggest hit. This power ballad dominated the UK charts for an astonishing five consecutive weeks, firmly establishing T'Pau as one of the most successful acts of 1987. "China in Your Hand" showcased Carol Decker's impeccable range and emotive delivery, supported by the band's tight musicianship and richly layered production.

Following the success of their debut album, T'Pau went on to release several more albums throughout the late 1980s and early 1990s, including "Rage" (1988) and "The Promise" (1991). Though they never replicated the same level of commercial success as their early years, T'Pau continued to tour and release new music sporadically, keeping their devoted fanbase satisfied.

To this day, T'Pau's songs are considered classics of the 1980s pop music era. With their memorable hooks, soaring vocals, and infectious energy, T'Pau left an indelible mark on the music industry. Whether you are a fan from the past or discovering their music for the first time, you can play and download these timeless sounds to experience the magic of T'Pau.

So, turn up the volume, cue up "China in Your Hand," and let the nostalgia transport you back to the vibrant and melodious world of T'Pau. Their music continues to resonate with fans around the globe, providing a timeless soundtrack to cherish for generations to come.

A turn of the key, my blood runs cold
And don't you make me beg for more
And don't you make me beg for more
And don't you make me beg for more
But I lost your love, heart and soul
But love will never compromise
Can't give love, heart or soul
Can't you try to (oh won't you even try to)
Do you keep secret left untold
Everything you do convinces me more
Give a little bit of heart and soul
Give a little bit of heart and soul
Give a little bit of heart and soul
Give a little bit of love to grow
Give a little bit of love to grow
Give a sign, I need to know
I feel so low and your head is high
I turned to gold but he turned to dust
I used to have a lover with a Midas touch
I'm tied to the hope that you will somehow
Looking for a little bit of love to grow, so
On the bed, on the pillow, where the love has died
Please, give me love, give me heart and soul
Something in the moonlight catches my eye
The tear in my heart as you walk on by
Tired eyes, tears that dried
Tired eyes, tears that dried
You move in a way that I've known before
(a walk on the water)
(give a little bit of heart and soul)
(is all that I need)
(leaving you ain't easy now)
(must I beg you)
(now I've needed you right from the very start)
(you never want me for myself)
