Who sang the song Toy Soldiers
GUILTY PLEASURE: MARTIKA
In 1991 "Love ... thy will be done" by Martika was released and the song continues to fascinate with its backline and its unusual meditative rhythm: No wonder, it was written by none other than Prince and he used a sample of the song for it "Fifty-Fifty Clown" by the Shoegaze hero COCTEAU TWINS, which is cleverly woven into the background. The leitmotif of the song is the title, repeated like a prayer wheel, which does not praise a god, but an eternal feeling - "Love, your will be done". All the aspects make the hit, sung by Martika, who actually wrote down the opening lyrics as a prayer, into a little hymn. Prince later added his own lines of text and sent her the finished song on cassette - how romantic actually. "Love ... thy will be done" was not Martika's biggest hit, but the melodramatic "Toy Soldiers" - a song about a friend's cocaine addiction. And on the subject of samples: Eminem sampled this song on his track "Like Toy Soldiers". The special song structure and the gospel-like singing in "Love ... thy will be done" also has something of a spoken song and develops an unbelievable pull:
"Thy will love be done
Love, thy will be mine "
