Artiestinformatie

Land   Engeland

Newwaveband uit Sheffield, South Yorkshire, Engeland, opgericht in 1980, nadat zanger Martin Fry voor zijn eigen fanzine Modern Drugs gitarist/toetsenist Mark White en saxofonist Stephen Singleton had geïnterviewd over de band Vice Versa. Fry wordt gevraagd of hij de groep wil komen versterken als leadzanger.



Ze dopen hun naam om in ABC, tezamen met basgitarist Mark Lickley en drummer David Robinson. Lickley verlaat de groep in 1981. Nog vóór de debuutalbumsessie The Lexicon of Love (1982) draagt Robinson de drumstokjes over aan David Palmer. Palmer en Singleton stappen op in 1983.



Fry en White verhuizen naar New York in 1984. David Yarrith (toetsen) en Eden (geboren als Fiona Russell-Powell; percussie) worden aan de band toegevoegd. Na 1987 blijven Fry en White alleen over.



Songtekst

Once upon a time when we were friends
I gave you my heart, the story ends
No happy ever after, now we're friends

Wish upon a star if that might help
The stars collide if you decide
Wish upon a star if that might help

What's it like to have loved and to lose her touch
What's it like to have loved and to lose that much

Well, I hope and I pray that maybe someday
You'll walk in the room with my heart
Add and subtract, but as a matter of fact
Now that you're gone, I still want you back
Remembering, surrendering, remembering that part
All of my heart

Spilling up in silk and coffee lace
You hook me up a rendezvous at your place
Your lipstick and your lipgloss seals my fate

Sentimental powers might help you now
But skip the hearts and flowers, skip the ivory towers
You'll be disappointed, and I'll lose a friend

No, I won't be told there's a crock of gold
At the end of the rainbow
Or that pleasure and pain, sunshine and rain
Might make this love grow

But I hope and I pray that maybe someday
You'll walk in the room with my heart
Add and subtract, but as a matter of fact
Now that you're gone, I still want you back
Remembering, surrendering
The kindest cut's the cruellest part
All of my heart

Yes, I hope and I pray that maybe someday
You'll walk in the room with my heart
And I shrug and I say that maybe today
You'll come home soon
Surrendering, remembering, surrendering that heart
All of my heart
