Vince Clarke, by his real name Vincent John Martin, was born on the 3rd of July, 1960, and is an English musician and songwriter. He is known for being the musician of the band Erasure since its inception in 1985 and previously, the songwriter of many groups, including Depeche Mode or Yazoo.
Looking into the composition of the free Only You piano sheet music, we can find elements like arpeggio and chord, being composed in the key of A major. Its composition is easy, "everyman song", like Moyet said.
Yazoo was an English duo, consisting of former Depeche Mode member Vince Clarke and Alison Moyet. They were active during 1981-1983, 2008, and 2011.
They had worldwide success, reaching the top of the charts in their country but not only.
Only You is a song written by Vince for Yazoo band, released on the 15th of March 1982, and being part of their album named Upstairs at Eric’s.
Only You, with a length of 3 minutes and 11 seconds, became instantly successful worldwide, reaching the charts, peaking at number 2 in the UK, 6 in Australia, and 5 in Irish Singles Chart.
It came out as a remix also, in 1999, reaching again the tops and having also a new version of the music video, created with the Houdini 3D animation SW package.
The song was used also in Christmas adverts, in 2017, was performed by Moet in 2016 at the Burberry Woman’s Spring/Summer 2016 Collection Fashion Show in London.
Only You was originally written as a sentimental ballad and Clarke wrote the music for it on a guitar and transposed the riff intro synthesizer notes.
Because of the romantic vibe, he wanted a vocalist who could sing it with passion and emotion. Moyet was reluctant at first because she never felt like singing pop songs, but she eventually agreed, mainly because she needed the money.
Only You is a great romantic song that you can try playing at your piano at home, with the help of the free Only You piano sheets from our website.
