The Other Side of Yuck

The Other Side of Love” by Yazoo, from (we think) the single, “The Other Side of Love
First week of December, 1982

Imagine the sweetly infectious synth beat of Depeche Mode’s “Just Can’t Get Enough”, except instead of Martin Gore’s evocative vocals you’ve got the annoying lady from Erasure hollering at you. Awful, right? Vince Clarke completely rips off his own melody here—the opening notes could really fool any Name That Tune player—and the longer the song goes on, the less your tolerance for Yaz(oo) will stand. It’s completely aurally offensive. Download only if you hate music.
