Incredible lyrics, moving music. And THAT voice. Timeless masterpiece.
Diego Diaz
Oh man . Those were the days. What a decade.
MultiMrMiles
in the 80s people had talent and dared to be different...it was the BEST BEST...new times are truly pissy
Kevin Byrne / Anders van Moog / Techtonik
What a song! Those synths in the chorus plus the chorus itself is a killer

This song is the entire 80s in under 6 minutes.
David Lee
Songs like this need to be kept and remembered, so much better than half the crap out nowadays...
Damian Peace
I am 50 now and still can recite most words. A classic in my opinion
Graeme Ewing
The emotions in this song make the hairs on the back of my neck stand on end. Anger, sarcasm, flippant, sad & reflective .. A work of absolute genius. 🥀
WillieWagglestick
One of these songs you'll always remember....

I love Marc Almond and this song is the best 😁 I'm only twenty so obviously wasn't in the 80's my mum and dad used to like soft cell and I appreciate they showed me who he was 😍 I know great music when I hear it 😁
Brendon McMorrow
An iconic song of the early 80s which never stops giving me goosebumps.

AMAN BAJPAI
Standing in the door of the Pink Flamingo, crying in the rain It was a kind of so-so love and I'm gonna make sure it never happens again You and I, it had to be the standing joke of the year You were a sleep around, a lost-and-found, and not for me I fear I tried to make it work, you in a cocktail skirt, and me in a suit, well it just wasn't me You're used to wearing less and now your life's a mess, so insecure you see I put up with all the scenes and this is one scene that's going to be played my way Take your hands off me I don't belong to you, you see Take a look at my face for the last time I never knew you, you never knew me Say hello, goodbye Say hello, wave goodbye Under the deep red light, I can see the make-up sliding down Hey little girl, you will always make-up, so take off that unbecoming frown What about me? Well, I'll find someone that's not going cheap in the sales A nice little housewife, who'll give me a steady life and won't keep going off the rails Take your hands off me I don't belong to you, you see Take a look at my face for the last time I never knew you, you never knew me Say hello, goodbye Say hello, wave goodbye We've been involved for quite a while now, and to keep you a secret, has been hell We're strangers meeting for the first time, ok? Just smile and say hello... Say hello, then wave goodbye Say hello, then wave goodbye Say hello, then wave goodbye Say hello, then wave goodbye Say hello, wave goodbye Say hello, then wave goodbye Say hello, say goodbye Goodbye...

This remains such a sensational song - Marc Almond, brilliant showman, vocalist and songwriter, one of the best of the 80s SynthPop era.
Richard Maysundo
Master of none

I can't believe this was only uploaded two weeks ago!! One of the greatest songs of all time.
blackgargamel
It should have been a bigger hit than Tainted Love imo
Lorna Douglas
Love it, one of my all time favourites of the 80s loved Soft Cell.
Paul Gallagher
An 80's perfect pop tune.
jan wilson
Heard this song at preston train station for first time in 84
Dave Ridge
lived it and loved it
Jori Haanpää
Simply: one of the decade's best songs.
Tom C
Well what about me? Ill find someone WHOS NOT GOING CHEAP IN THE SALES KO FROM ALMOND
Emiliano Severoni
When he starts singing "take my hands off me", that synth always takes my breath away.
Gwendoline P.
im 15 years old again 💗
Priscila
Missing my childhood , so much!
Laurence von Winkenburger
Why is this SO good ? It's practically God level.
Ian Smith
Masterpiece.
Nick Wyatt
He is most extraordinarily pretty. After all these years, Marc still does it for me.
Brian Likings
Voice like silk. Love all his songs. Brilliant showman live.
joosie poole
What a classic it takes you right back when being young and life was simple with no pressures. When you grow up you don't know what's coming
Titanic Jones
I just love Marc Almonds songs , but this has to be one of his best , even though their is quiet a lot, what a voice
Sarah Trivuncic
Probably the song I've heard more times in my life than any other... Why SHWG (and Torch) don't get played on the radio more mystifies me!
Alistair Smith
I'm a dull and hardened music nerd. 80s synth pop isn't really my thing but this is just one of the most glorious songs ever written.
Ian Javes
one of the best pop songs ever written
ORGANHANDEL Music OFFICIAL

tom o'conner
Based on Pink flamingo Blackpool an iconic gay club but video made as if man and women in a straight club.. grt tune...
Nick O'Las
Marc Almond and the 80's at their absolute best !!
Sherlock Bones
The epitome of 80's pop. Genius.
funkmasterjee
I was 17 when this was a hit. I'm now 54 Great music triggers something deep inside....and this certainly does and did
TheBigJon36
pure 80s, brings back happy memories of that time👍
Official Regina George
Marc is so gorgeous and charming! Such a unique guy and wasn't afraid to be himself especially in a time where it was so hard for gay people
Aiknaath Jain
Anyone else brought here by Master of None?
PinkSmarties72
The chorus gives me goosebumps
Nikki Holland
Absolutely awesome song from the 1980’s. Wish I was back there now. Marc had such amazing eyes too.
Martin Peacock
One person is very sad. An anthem song and one for my youth.
RasputinWatchSite
Reached no.3 in UK single chart when released in 1982.
mazzymuso
The chorus is spine tingling every time. Timeless. 1991 version excellent too and better vocals as young Marc had learned how to hold the notes by then :-)
Amanda Leonard
I'M really love this video of soft cell I really like this song from Amanda
thesnoopmeisterer
I like this song. 1st heard it on TalkSPORT, some manager got sacked so presenter popped this on 👍
Don Kiddick
Looks like the son of Edmund Blackadder (series 1) and Liza Minnelli...
Gatcha_ Studios
A classic tune!! That really takes you back!! Brilliant lyrics and a brilliantly underrated song!
Elijah Blackmore

Epic 80s 🌷 🎶.. love this song ❤️
Thomas Dege
Great synths, I mean epic; but never knew a human had so many teeth.
Grover Bennington
Marc Almond and Soft Cell are one of the most iconic voices ever. Stunning.
gaywest4298

Maciek Trybuszewski
Marc looks like a good witch in this video.
sarah holland
I don't belong to you you see
Steve Gordon
The 80's. Music from better times, of that there is no doubt!
Heinrich Heuer
best decade ever!
Stephen Saunders
He understands that it is 'You and I', not 'You and me'. The man should have a knighthood. The best song from 1982 and there was some considerable competition.
oldmacisback
Brilliance. Even Marc Almond says it's slightly off-key
Rupert D. Bayer
Takes me right back to 1981 - my first year of University in London, having left my small provincial town. Such memories in music.
G1myster
Easily their best song. Beats Tainted Love hands down. (I know Tainted Love isn't THEIR song, but u get my drift)
Rocky Sullivan
Marc Almond - always reminded me of a young Kenneth Williams
Charley Says
Coronation Street brought me here... Playing on the Juke Box... You in a cocktail skirt and me in a suit, well it just wasn't me...
velsatis1971
One of the best songs from my youth and great to see all the new fans here from MON. This song exactly fitted the last scene. Marc still performs this song every now and then and it still sounds amazing.
john leto
One of the great voices, I'm old enough to remember the vicious tabloid attacks on him because of his sexuality. He's kind-of an icon now.
Katharine Carlisle
Absolutely love this song. Heard Marc Almond sing this live a while ago and oh my the goosebumps. Fabulous song
Katharine Carlisle
Still is and always be in my top 10 of the 80’s. Absolutely love this song. Especially when Marc sings live
Why am I here
The keyboard magic starts at 1:18
Phil Jarvis
An absolute classic. Soft Cell at their very best.
Ian Harty
2018 And still makes me go funny inside!.

...Tire suas mão de mim, eu não pertenço a você...
Pippistrelle72
Sorry but Masters of None whatever it is, has nothing to do with why I'm listening to this. I just love this song. Marc Almond is so captivating and has such a soulful gorgeous voice!
Tony Lee
Thanks for this. One of the greatest songs ever.
