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

It's cold outside, the night love died
On the night you murdered love
It's cold outside, the night love died
On the night you murdered love

From an early age
I was taught to respect
That a broken heart, girl
Aint a thing you collect

Close your eyes and say
Nothing lasts a day
Youre wasting my time
Yet I love to love you

Close your eyes and say
Honor love obey
Youre wasting my time
Yet I love to love you

It's cold outside, the night love died
On the night you murdered love
It's cold outside, the night love died
On the night you murdered love

January, February
March and April, May
June, July sees you go by
I see love walk away

Didnt use a blade
A bullet or a gun
You poisoned the moonlight
When you put out the sun

Close your eyes and say
Nothing lasts a day
Youre wasting my time
Yet I love to love you

Close your eyes and say
Honor love obey
Youre wasting my time
Yes, I love to love you

It's cold outside, the night love died
On the night you murdered love
It's cold outside, the night love died, baby
On the night you murdered

January, February
March and April, May
June, July sees you go by
I see love walk away

Love to love you

Close your eyes and say
Nothing lasts a day
Youre wasting my time
Yet I love to love you

It's cold outside, the night love died
On the night you murdered love
It's cold outside, the night love died
On the night you murdered love

It's cold outside, the night love died
On the night you murdered love

Yes, you murdered love
And you murdered love
Yes, you murdered love
And you murdered love
Yes, you murdered love
Yes, you murdered love
Yes, you murdered love
