BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1990
“Use It Up and Wear It Out” is a song by Odyssey that was released as a single in 1980. It spent two weeks at No. 1 in the UK Singles Chart in August that year, but failed to make commercial success in the United States.
In 1990 British vocal duo Pat & Mick, consisting of popular radio personalities Pat Sharp (born 25 October 1961) and Mick Brown (born 28 November 1962), both of whom are from London released a cover version of the song produced by Stock Aitken & Waterman reaching #22 on the UK singles chart. The song also received club play in America where it reached #81 on the Billboard dance chart.
The royalties from their record sales were donated to Capital FM’s ‘Help A London Child’ charity.
