Ooberfuse have released their excellent cover of Yazoo‘s 1982 hit ‘Only You.
Written by English musician Vince Clarke. He wrote it while with Depeche Mode, but recorded it in 1982 after forming the duo Yazoo with Alison Moyet.
We asked Hal St John what inspired Ooberfuse to record ‘ONLY YOU‘. He gave us a neat list of reasons…
1. People who don’t know us are able to position us genre wise, band set up wise etc etc. ‘Only You’ is a melodic electronic track that nevertheless carries warmth of genuine emotions. That’s a good description of our own material combining modern music technologies with genuine heartfelt emotions.
2. ‘Only You’ also allows us to demonstrate the close vocal harmonies that feature on our own tracks.
3. One final reason is that I believe Vince Clark was inspired by Mozart when he wrote this track. The last DNA test I did showed I have Austrian/German/Swedish ancestry so I have a genetic affinity with ‘Only You’!
