L.O.S.E...Y.O.U.R...L.O.V.E

Running Time: 10:02

While this track may be considered a flop compared to the other singles released by this great synthpop band, this is still my favorite Blancmange song. Well, it had a lot to do with the music video which featured Neil Arthur and Stephen Luscombe trashing just about every furniture or thing they could get their hands on in the house. Also, there's the twirling foot of Neil and the funny "raised eyebrow" look on Stephen's face. Humor was injected into this break-up song and while it may seem cathartic in dealing with the anger and regret for a love lost, it's also a tad violent for the little tykes (Wouldn't want to see them smashing things left and right, do you?). The song's chorus lingered in my mind for days after watching the video from a local show called "Eurorock" (in the mid-80's) that I went to the music store a week after to buy the single or album. The store clerk didn't have a clue about the artist or song even after I sang it to her... errr, maybe I didn't sing it right... OK, I was out of tune... and annoying, perhaps...but I was really desperate to have it. Kinda pathetic, huh? After months of searching, a friend gave me a cassette copy recorded from vinyl. Come to think of it, I believe I still have that tape.

Here's my take on "Lose Your Love". Enjoy!!!

Then, if you're interested, here's the music video uploaded on YouTube by UltimaThule8888:
