No more "I love you's" - The Lover Speaks

The Lover Speaks consisted of David Freeman and Joseph Hughes. They formed in 1985 after working in the punk band The Flys. They got a recording contract with A&M Records via Dave Stewart of Eurythmics fame. After releasing their debut album and this single, they toured with the Eurythmics in 1986. They returned to the studio in 1988 and recorded another album, The Big Lie with Iovine, Stewart and Daniel Lanois producing - only to face A&M Records not wanting to release it. The duo then split. Freeman went on to release a few solo albums in the 1990s.

'No more "I love you's"' got some belated praise when it was covered by Annie Lennox on her album 'Medusa' (1995). I liked that cover and went searching for the original version. I found it on the second to last day of the year!

My collection: 7" single no. 2589
Found: Grammofoonplatenwinkel, Utrecht, December 30, 1995
Cost: 2 guilders
Tracks: 'No more "I love you's"' / 'This can't go on'
