Based on poll results we’ll be singing the classic, ‘Only You’ by Yazoo.
Your $5 will cover Daood’s painstaking arrangements and a wee slice to Nik Wever and Bilay Badoe at Dstrct for opening the 2nd floor of the bar just for us.
“…A track which had been offered as Clarke’s parting gift to Depeche Mode but rejected. That song was ‘Only You’…Over the years, ‘Only You’s reach has been wide and diverse. Flying Pickets took to the Christmas Number One in 1982, whilst Enrique Iglesias took it to the summit of the Billboard Latin charts in 1997. It was also used to Richard Curtis-style effect in the final episode of The Office. But ‘Only You”s power is the melding of Clarke and Moyet’s opposites into pure pop majesty.”
