    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 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
