    For anyone out there that’s struggling to find something to play, here’s a short playlist of my past covers of Yazoo and Erasure songs that might be worth considering:

    And here’s a recent cover of one of Vince’s Depeche Mode songs:

    Season 388. Submission 1. "Love Letters" (Lyrics by Edward Heyman and music by Victor Young, 1945).

    This song appeared as an instrumental in the movie of the same name, and was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Original Song in 1945. Famous covers include those by Ketty Lester (1961) and Elvis Presley (1966).

    And, a magnificent release as a single by Alison Moyet in 1987 charted in six countries, including the UK where it rose as high as #4 and remained on the charts for 12 weeks. Here's a link to a fab performance by Alison: https://youtu.be/g6uATC-u9rw . (Elvis's recording is not too shabby either. )


    Thank you ever so much, Birdie and Del, for hosting and your terrific theme. I really look forward to hearing what everyone brings, as there's so so much fine music to choose from. (I'll spare you a cover of "Only You" [I've recorded it previously.], though it is one of my all-time faves.)

    Baritone uke tuned up a bit here.

    Good evening Seasonistas! Quality not quantity sums up the season so far. We’ve had some great contributions already, but I know many of you won’t be especially familiar with Vince’s and Alison’s work and may need some time to find something appropriate. The good news is that once you strip a lot of the songs on offer back to their component chords they shouldn’t take long to pick up. Some of the best and the catchiest pop songs are the simplest - songwriters like Vince Clarke and my co-host Lynda use insanely catchy vocal melodies over the top of relatively simple and repetitive chord progressions to create some fabulous music.

    I wasn’t going to jump in quite so quickly with something this week but as it’s been a rather slow start here’s one that some of you might want to have a go at yourselves. It contains only 3 chords and perfectly illustrates the point I made about songwriting above. After leaving Yazoo, Vince briefly started a project called The Assembly - the idea being that he would work with different guest vocalists on his songs. To the best of my knowledge this collaboration with Feargal Sharkey was The Assembly’s only offering before Vince abandoned the project and went on to form Erasure with vocalist Andy Bell.

    Not going to lie- I squealed when I saw the theme title, scanned for the finer points, and then figured out how to play this my way. Now to go back and see what we are supposed to do, and wether or not I can play ten more. I really like Vince Clark.
