In 1989, Liza Minnelli covered the song for her album Visible Results
, which was produced by The Pet Shop Boys. Tanita told us that she is "deeply honored that Liza Minnelli sang that." She admitted that when Minnelli recorded her version, she was younger and didn't "really appreciated who she was." But now she's "a huge fan."
Tanita added that she thinks that Minnelli, "understood the song in an American way," as "sobriety has a very specific meaning in America, about recovery... and alcohol." However as a Brit, the word had a different connotation to her, meaning "just to be very serious and sober in your behavior." (See our interview with Tanita Tikaram
