This is the 87th post in a weekly series. Read about it here and see the list of songs here. A new post about a different song is posted each Monday.

She was hoping to attract blues musiciansbut she only got one response: Clarke. Moyet and Clarke had never met, but they had some acquaintances in common.
She and Clarke recorded the demo, and not long after, they learned the label not only wanted to release it as a single, but to have Moyet and Clarke record an album. In the US, it only reached Clarke and Moyet parted ways soon after its release. They have each said that they felt overwhelmed by the quick progression from the Melody Maker ad to recording the album.
They never gave themselves the chance to get to know each other, such that they had no way to handle the tensions that arose in their professional relationship. In a interview with The Independent, Moyet said :. We never spoke about anything other than recording — nothing. It was really weird — almost like an arranged marriage.

But as weird of a choice as that might have been for Gomez, her version resonated with at least one fan. It also made sense to me that a smaller of the covers came from American artists, as neither the song nor the band had as big an Only you depeche mode in the US.
But just is notable is the fact that there were covers modeled after the versions by Gomez and Radin. That any of these covers would appear on Christmas albums still baffles me, because the song has nothing to do with Christmas.
