A classic. I was still playing this in parties in 1992 -- 10 years after its release. A staple of the New Wave era. Love the percussions at the 2:55 break and the echoing effect from Moyet's laughing.
I've just given this a spin for the first time in many years. Listen to the 40-second break on the original mix, starting at about 2:55 - that's surely one of the earliest recorded blueprints for the classic Chicago house sound that I've ever heard. Don't believe me? Speed it up to 120 bpm and you'll definitely see what I mean.
I have 2 copys of this song that i stumbled upon at a shop, 1 has the "YAZ" on the top left corner, the other identical copy has the Band name spelled "Yazoo".....#2: 1 record has a "MUTE" Printed Stamp on the left of the label, the other doesn't. Kinda rare i guess for the misprinted Band name as "YAZOO" anyone care to share their knowledge on this version, i'd like to know more....thanks
In the UK the band is called Yazoo, on Mute. In the US it's Yaz, on Sire.
band name was originally yazoo, but a uk band? also had that name so this band shortened to yaz, some lps had a sticker covering the "oo"
