“Killer” is a song by Adamski and Seal. Written by Adam Tinley (Adamski) and Seal and produced by Adamski, “Killer” was Adamski’s breakthrough single, but is now more notable for introducing Seal as a vocalist. A major hit in the UK, it reached number one, spending four weeks at the top of the chart in May 1990. In total, the single sold over 400,000 copies in the UK, earning it a BPI Gold certification.
Lyrically, the title of the song comes from the line “It’s the loneliness that’s the killer,” which occurs only once in the introduction to the Seal version and not at all in the Adamski version. The distinctive opening bassline and keyboard melody during the chorus, however, are preserved in almost every version of the song in some form.
The song also contains the lyrics “Racism in among future kings can only lead to no good, besides, all our sons and daughters already know how that feels”, these were recycled and used in Seal’s song “Future Love Paradise” featured on his debut album…
