1985: You and Your Heart So Blue By Bucks Fizz

Composed by Andy Hill and Peter Sinfield. Recorded by British pop group Bucks Fizz for their final studio album, Writing On The Wall. The release of the single came at a traumatic time for the group. Having only just got over a coach crash, which had incapacitated the group for several months, the release date collided with member Jay Aston walking out of the band amid much publicity. Halfway through promoting the single, the group recruited a new female singer, Shelley Preston. As well as this, Bucks Fizz (with Jay Aston) had recently filmed a TV special in Mauritius, but it went un-screened as the production company had gone bankrupt midway through filming. The single became overshadowed in all the publicity and failed to reach the Top 40 in the United Kingdom, peaking at No.43. Despite the fact that Jay Aston was still with the group at the time of release, the promotional video for the song only featured three members, probably because the group’s management knew she was leaving and decided to leave her out of the video. Bucks Fizz’ new line-up, with Shelley Preston, first appeared on the popular British television talk-show Wogan, and chose to perform You and Your Heart So Blue.
