Artiestinformatie

Land   Engeland

Newwaveband uit Sheffield, South Yorkshire, Engeland, opgericht in 1980, nadat zanger Martin Fry voor zijn eigen fanzine Modern Drugs gitarist/toetsenist Mark White en saxofonist Stephen Singleton had geïnterviewd over de band Vice Versa. Fry wordt gevraagd of hij de groep wil komen versterken als leadzanger.



Ze dopen hun naam om in ABC, tezamen met basgitarist Mark Lickley en drummer David Robinson. Lickley verlaat de groep in 1981. Nog vóór de debuutalbumsessie The Lexicon of Love (1982) draagt Robinson de drumstokjes over aan David Palmer. Palmer en Singleton stappen op in 1983.



Fry en White verhuizen naar New York in 1984. David Yarrith (toetsen) en Eden (geboren als Fiona Russell-Powell; percussie) worden aan de band toegevoegd. Na 1987 blijven Fry en White alleen over.



Songtekst

When your world is full of strange arrangements
And gravity won't pull you through
You know you're missing out on something
Well that something depends on you

All I'm saying, it takes a lot to love you
All I'm doing, you know it's true
All I mean now, there's one thing
Yes one thing that turns this grey sky to blue

That's the look, that's the look
The look of love

When your girl has left you out on the pavement (Goodbye)
Then your dreams fall apart at the seams
Your reason for living's your reason for leaving
Don't ask me what it means

Who's got the look? I don't know the answer to that question
Where's the look? If I knew I would tell you
What's the look? Look for your information
Yes there's one thing, the one thing that still holds true (What's that?)

That's the look, that's the look
The look of love

If you judge a book by the cover
Then you'd judge the look by the lover
I hope you'll soon recover
Me I go from one extreme to another

And though my friends just might ask me
They say "Martin maybe one day you'll find true love"
I say "Maybe, there must be a solution
To the one thing, the one thing, we can't find"

That's the look, that's the look
The look of love
That's the look, that's the look
The look of love
That's the look, that's the look
The Look of love
