#ThrowbackThursday! Today we remember the gravely-voiced English singer Alison Moyet. Starting out as one half of the British synthpop duo Yazoo in the early 80’s (their biggest hit was “Don’t Go”), she moved on to a very successful solo career later in the decade. Songs such as “All Cried Out” and “Love Resurrection” cemented her both a place in the charts and as an important name in pop music. The 90’s were quieter, but Moyet did lend her unique vocals to trip-hop paragon Tricky and DJ King Britt, amongst others. Since the early 2000s, she has made a comeback, with her first studio album in eight years being released in 2002, produced by The Insects, who also produced tracks on Massive Attack’s outstanding Protection album. Moyet’s latest album, The Minutes, was released in May last year. But it is Moyet’s tracks from the 80’s that she is most known and loved for.
Thanks to my buddy Yianni Giovanoglou for reminding me! I almost forgot about Moyet but really enjoyed her stuff while I was growing up. Here are my top five Moyet tracks:
