BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1989
“Blue Savannah” is a song by Erasure which was issued as a single from the duo’s fourth studio album Wild! in 1990. Mute Records released it in Europe as the album’s third single, and Sire Records released it in the United States as the album’s second single.
It is a classic Erasure synthpop song written by members Vince Clarke and Andy Bell. One of the band’s signature songs, the duo still perform it regularly in concert. An uplifting love song, the instrumentation is crisp and heavily synthesized, accented with sweeping, programmed piano.
“Blue Savannah” became one of Erasure’s most successful singles, peaking at number three on the UK singles chart. It also returned the band to the Top 20 in Germany, where the song hit number thirteen. The release of the single brought about the usual array of remixes and B-sides. Although several club mixes of “Blue Savannah” were issued commercially, the US promo only Shep Pettibone “Out of the Blue” mix proved to be most popular in dance clubs.
In the US “Blue Savannah” peaked at #44 on the Billboard Hot Dance/Club Play Chart.
