I only want to be with you - The Tourists

'I only want to be with you' was written by Mike Hawker and Ivor Raymonde. It was the first solo single released by British singer Dusty Springfield. Recorded while she was still a member of The Springfields, the song was released in November 1963, three weeks after The Springfields' final concert.

The Tourists, a British pop band consisting of Peet Coombes, David A. Stewart, Annie Lennox, Eddie Chin and Jim Toorney, recorded their version of the song in 1979. The single peaked at number 4 in the UK at the end of 1979. When the group disbanded the next year, Stewart and Lennox went on to form the Eurythmics. The rest, as they say, is history...
