80's and 90's 12 Inch Mixes

Bananarama – Only Your Love (Remix) (UK 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on June 3rd, 2011

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1990

REQUEST

“Only Your Love” is a song recorded by English girl group Bananarama. It was released as the first single from the group’s fifth studio album Pop Life and was issued several months prior to the release of the album. The Pop Life album marked a break for Bananarama from their long-standing relationship with the Stock Aitken Waterman (SAW) production trio. “Only Your Love” was co-written and produced by Youth. The album version of the song was remixed for its single release.

The song’s primary rhythm, complete with ‘Woo Woo’ hoots, directly references “Sympathy for the Devil”. This led Jonathon Ross to jokingly thank ‘The Rolling Stones’ after Bananarama had performed the song on his TV show. The song also contains samples of “Loaded” by Primal Scream and “Fool’s Gold” by The Stone Roses, two songs that had been recent pop and dance hits in the UK. Upon its release “Only Your Love” received positive critical reviews. The song was not released as a single in the United States.

“Only Your Love” peaked at number twenty-seven in the UK singles chart, which the group considered to be a disappointment. The single did not fare much better in other countries, hitting number forty-nine in New Zealand and fifty-one in Australia.

    Great post, DJPaulT – I’ve been a huge fan of the Nanas for years and these remixes are a difficult to find rarity. One thing that is always mentioned about the Nanas is their ‘long-standing’ relationship with S/A/W, largely due to the fact that they had their biggest international hits working with them. However, the Nanas only worked with S/A/W on 2 cuts on ‘True Confessions’ (their last Jolley-Swain collaboration), one full album ‘WOW’, and 2 tracks on ‘Pop Life’, and I’ve always felt that the success of their work with S/A/W tends to overshadow some of their other great output, particularly some of the tracks on ‘True Confessions’ and ‘Pop Life’. Just thought I’d mention it. Keep up the awesome work, and thanks again for all the great music.

    I love the ‘nana’s work with Jolley & Swain. Always thought there is this fun innocent spontaneous quality to the Pop Music they produced together.
    Having said that, I do adore the SAW phase of the Nana’s. I Heard A Rumour is pure moment in Pop. And that Wow album is simply just that.
    The irony is the behind the scenes relationship didn’t go down so well, especially between Siobhan and Pete.

    I used to think ‘I Heard a Rumor’ is the most awesome Nana track ever, and it’s still a huge favorite – but I do think ‘Love, Truth & Honesty’ has some kind of weird hold over me. It’s not fantastic, but oddly compelling, at least to me. They are particularly strong, lyrically.

    Yes – the behind the scenes relationship with S/A/W was famously fractious!

    Hi BTGfan

    Bananarama also worked with SAW on their PLEASE YOURSELF album. I think that was their last full album with them.

    Paul, you are my hero once again. I always thought “Only Your Love” was their finest post-Siobhan single, period, and was stunned that they didn’t even try it (as a single) in the States – they might have even gotten onto poppier-alternative leaning stations had London put some muscle behind it. Great video too – though it does play to their ‘fiercest’ fan base 🙂
