Yazoo - Only You


On this date in 1982, Yazoo released their debut single "Only You". The B side was "Situation". Both were on their debut album, Upstairs At Eric's. The single reached the #2 on the U.K. singles chart. The A side would be released in the U.S. in May, 1982 under the name Yaz. There was already a band named Yazoo in the U.S. They would also separately release "Situation" as a U.S.-only single later in the year. The Essex, England new wave band disbanded in 1983 after two albums. Vince Clarke, formerly of Depeche Mode, went on to form Erasure. The band has recently reunited to tour.
