An amazing piece of music & their best song imo. My mum used to buy me reduced singles when she worked next door to John Menzies but bought this for me new on 7" when it came out (still has the £2.39 sticker on it) coz I liked it so much.
Bearing in mind I was only 7 at the time, even now, this is a pretty deep song.
Even sounds like they're talking about bondage at one point.
A real emotional journey, I especially love the instrumental bridge before the last chorus.
It's a kind of romantic but tragic Gothic-esque love song.
Remember seeing Cher Lloyd sing this on X Factor which made me dig it out again, she did a pretty good job and was nice to see someone so young sing this as it's a bit of a forgotten classic.
I can't watch the video without envisioning French & Saunders wonderful parody, which is equally worth watching.

I remember Stay being a big deal back in early 1992 but never really paid much attention to it until I was older. I was captivated by the music video though as I find Siobhan Fahey to be jaw-droppingly gorgeous. I really like the song but it's way too short, consisting of two verses and a chorus. It should have been much longer. I'd love to see a 4k remaster of the video but since that is unlikely the original single on vinyl will suffice.
