The Sweetest Illusion is the third solo studio album by Polish-born singer-songwriter Basia, released in May 1994 by Epic Records. The record spawned the hit "Drunk on Love". The album took two and a half years to make. It was primarily recorded at Whitfield Street Recording Studios in London, apart from piano parts, which were recorded at London's Westside Studios. The material was mastered at Sony Music Studios in New York.
Her tender yet powerful feelings take listeners' hearts to places with fascinating, sometimes surreal imagery. Basia and partner/producer Danny White's real gift is rhythmic diversity, and the tandem take the artsy route on a big, brassy tour through Brazil and Latin America, employing jazzy touches that keep even the most staid tune hopping. The ballads are sweet as well. Nobody in this crowded genre outclassed or outperformed Basia, but as welcome as this comeback after four years was, the singer never followed up with another full-length studio project.

Album: Basia: Superhits, 2004. Bread and butter tastes more like it could be cordon bleu Mona Lisa's smiling like a Cheshire cat Even Johnny rocker sounds today like Nat King Cole Every yellow taxi's like a Cadillac. And the cup that once appeared half empty Has become a cup that is half full Where there was a space there is now plenty You're a lucky sign ascending No one does for me what you do. Love is the sweetest illusion Love is the sweetest illusion.
