Sugar Pie DeSanto


Riding on the back of Tommy Tucker's "High-Heeled Sneakers," "Slip-in Mules" described how sneakers hurt De Santo's feet, but not to worry: She'd be the hit of the dance anyway. Then the hits kept coming: "Use What You Got" and another song about clothing. "Soulful Dress" is probably Sugar Pie DeSanto's best-known song these days, not least because Texas singer Marcia Ball has had it in her set for years, but it also established DeSanto's persona: an assertive young woman who took no mess.
