"Take Me To The Girl" was Associates' last great single, incredibly romantic-sounding and featuring sweeping synths, a discofied bassline and Billy Mackenzie's otherworldy voice, performing a distinctly European song. He's even tossing in a few words in German for good measure. It was released in 1985 when the band in reality had become a solo project for tortured singer Mackenzie, as co-founder Alan Rankine left after their 1982 masterpiece Sulk. Mackenzie soldiered on after "Take Me To The Girl", but without much success, and eventually commited suicide in 1997, aged 39.
