!Troping into the night:
* SomethingSomethingLeonardBernstein: Notably averted by her cover of the TropeNamer "It's The End Of The World As We Know It", delivered in sufficiently clear and measured fashion that you can actually tell what the words are, even if they still [[WordSaladLyrics don't make a lot of sense]].

She got her big break in 1985 by doing vocals for the Creator/DavidLynch film ''BlueVelvet'' with the song "Mysteries of Love". Used after Lynch's attempt to use Music/ThisMortalCoil's CoverVersion of "Song to the Siren" was thwarted by licensing costs, the song became a prominent part of the film and gained attention to Cruise's abilities. This led to the ''BlueVelvet'''s composer, Angelo Badalamenti, writing more songs for her to perform for future films. The resulting recordings ended up on her 1989 critically acclaimed album ''Floating Into The Night''.

It should also be noted that she was one of 3 major DreamPop solo artists, including LisaGermano and HeidiBerry. Compared to the former's AlternativeRock nature and the latter's FolkRock nature, Cruise takes her music from more NewAge and {{Jazz}} influences. Additionally, Cruise hasn't been somehow associated with the [[FourADRecords 4AD Records]] label. (Both Germano and Berry were signed to it in TheNineties; Berry also contributed to ThisMortalCoil's last album)

After working on more soundtrack songs, Cruise grew interested in writing and composing songs for herself. The resulting album, ''The Voice Of Love'' was released in 1992 once again to critical acclaim.

She spent the next few years working on soundtracks and taking breaks before going solo once again in 2002 titled ''The Art Of Being A Girl''. Although not as acclaimed as her other work, it was strongly received and even met some pretty good sales. She has since done some work acting and did some work as a backing vocalist for bands in ElectronicMusic.
