Although All Over the Place was well regarded by critics, it was not a chart success. Like her bandmates, Steele only achieved popular success and fame with the 1986 release of Different Light and its hit singles “Manic Monday” (#2) and “Walk Like An Egyptian” (#1). In addition to playing melodic and often intricate basslines, Steele sings lead on two songs: a cover of Big Star's “September Gurls”, later credited for belatedly bringing songwriter Alex Chilton a large income from royalties, and the self-penned “Following”, a stark and introspective ballad far from the glossy sound and more standard lyrical themes of Different Light's other tracks. Rolling Stone magazine praised “Following” upon the album's release as its standout song, a dark composition that pointed the band in new jazz and folk directions, only some of which would be explored. Steele also sings lead on the second verse of “Walk Like An Egyptian”. As often discussed in later interviews, Different Light was also the product of significant contention and tension between the band and producer David Kahne—much of this contention surrounding the use of musicians outside the band on some songs. Despite lingering controversy surrounding the precise extent to which session musicians were employed on the album, Steele is the only band member confirmed to have not been overdubbed, an achievement she later joked was only because Kahne “ran out of money”.
