What a hauntingly beautiful ballad this is! Yazoo's 1982 debut album Upstairs At Eric's featured the two fabulous hit singles "Don't Go" and "Only You", both written by Vince Clarke, but the Alison Moyet composition "Winter Kills" is almost just as good. And how she sings it, going deep and deeper still, to a seemingly very dark place. The stripped down and hollow arrangement works incredibly well alongside her ghostlike vocals to make it one perfect piece of music.
