Clemencedane from ArizonaLove the gritty vocals and beautiful harmonies. Also love the sort of Caribbean sounding percussion - is that a marimba? In general I'm not down with the message if you're in a relationship with someone, but if it's about recovering from heartbreak I'm all for it.

Bill from Liverpool, EnglandStephen Stills was at a party in London and feeling lonesome as his g/f was back in the States. Doris Troy, UK-based soul singer (tremendous voice), got talking to him and said "Love the one you're with, Sugar!". Stills loved the expression and asked if she minded if he used it in a song. She readily agreed. (Source: interview with Doris Troy on Spencer Leigh's 'On the Beat' radio show.)
New Order took the title for "Blue Monday" from an illustration, which read "Goodbye Blue Monday," in the Kurt Vonnegut book Breakfast Of Champions. The image referred to the invention of the washing machine improving housewives' lives.
