Andy Bell

The soaring falsetto of Andy Bell combined with the infectious electronic melodies of Vince Clarke to position Erasure among the most commercially successful techno-pop acts of their era. Born April 25, 1964, in Peterborough, England, Bell was among over 40 applicants who in 1985 responded to a blind ad in a British music weekly seeking a singer; at the audition, he discovered the advertisement was placed by synth pop pioneer Clarke, famed for his previous stints as a member of Depeche Mode and Yazoo. Bell's powerful rendition of "Who Needs Love Like That?" so impressed Clarke that Erasure was formed on the spot, and months later the same song became the duo's debut single. One of the first openly gay stars in pop, Bell's gender-bending flamboyance and high-pitched vocals proved the perfect complement to Clarke's moody persona and buoyant popcraft. Although their 1986 debut LP Wonderland was a commercial and critical disappointment, with 1988's The Innocents Erasure scored a pair of American pop hits, "Chains of Love" and "A Little Respect." While both 1989's Wild! and 1991's Chorus topped the British charts, the advent of grunge minimized dance-pop's immediate appeal, however, and subsequent outings appeared to little notice outside of their core audience. In 2005, Bell made the announcement that he'd been HIV positive since 1998. Two albums appeared that year, Erasure's Nightbird and his first solo album Electric Blue. Five active years for the band kept Bell away from his solo career until 2010 when his club-oriented album Non-Stop arrived. ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi

Amazing
I fell in Love with Erasure in the early 90's. And, I still love them, especially Andy Bell!
Luv this song !!!!!
I am a straight man in my early 40's that grew up in the 80's. I have always appreciated Andy's music. I went to see him in concert at the Britt Festival in in Jacksonville Oregon. His show was amazing. I knew he was gay and that he was flamboyant, but I had no idea of HOW theatrical his show was. The fembots were funny and added to the show. Andy's started in a sequin dress and high heels -- ended up in a sequin pantsuit still in the high heels. You dot have to be gay to enjoy his show.

Love Andy's voice. I listen to his 80's hits as I grew up with him. Nobody hits the high notes, then back down to the low notes like him! You're Great Andy!!
