Only when you leave - Spandau Ballet

'Only when you leave' was the first single from Spandau Ballet's fourth album 'Parade'. The previous album, 'True', had brought the band a lot of success, and so the new album explored the territory of smooth and commercial pop songs a little further, without taking too many chances.

The strategy paid off: without much trouble the single reached its peak position of number 3 in the UK singles chart and number 2 in the Dutch Top 40. It was all downhill from there.

My collection: 7" single no. 1033
Found: Record Exchange, London, October 17, 1989
Cost: 10p
Tracks: 'Only when you leave' / 'Paint me down (live)'
