Day 6 - White Lion Radio's Favourite Vinyl 12 Inch Singles From The 80s

Day 6.....

Yazoo - Nobody's Diary (12 Inch Version)

Vince Clarke the master of Synthpop! Vince has achieved incredible success over a long period with Depeche Mode, Yazoo and Erasure. When he formed Yazoo with Alison Moyet it looked like the perfect partnership, however, the band lasted for just 2 albums “Upstairs At Erics” and “You And Me Both”, that said, they are 2 fantastic albums packed with Synthpop nuggets, including of course “Nobody’s Diary”, which appeared on “You And Me Both”.

The 12 inch version is synthpop heaven, the extended arrangement is just perfect and runs for around 6 minutes, the only other track on the 12 inch vinyl is an extended version of the original B side “State Farm”, which has a running time of 6 ½ minutes.

This is definitely my favourite Yazoo 12 Inch Vinyl single.

The single was released in May 1983 and reached number 3 in the UK Singles Chart.

The track was written by Alison Moyet.
