'The Other Side Of Love' is a song by the English duo Yazoo (Yaz) released in 1982 as their third single. The single peaked at #13 on the UK Singles Charts making it the band's least successful release and the only one of their four singles to not crack the Top 10. The track was written by Vince Clarke and Alison Moyet and was not included on the 1982 release of 'Upstairs At Eric's'. It was included on a  later released CD reissue.

The track 'Ode To Boy' appeared on Yaz's second LP 'You And Me Both' in 1983 The cover of this 12 inch features the original artwork from Alison  Moyet.

Track 1 was taken from the 2012 Dbl. CD release 'The Collection'
Track 2 was pulled from the 2008 2CD/1DVD Remastered Box Set (from 'B-Sides & Rarities')

12 Inch Front, Back, Side 1 & Side 2 were photographed & reset for this blog post.

    This is nice and rare!!!

    Thank you!!!

    I have been looking for 5 years now for the 2009 Yazoo Tribute "Nobody's Diary - A Tribute To Yazoo" as it has some killer versions of some of their songs but I cannot find it anywhere! It's about the only thing missing in my extensive Vince Clarke collection!

  2. Thanks for the comment. I know of the 2002 Tribute that's titled the same as what you're looking for. Is this it

    I can do some looking about too.

  3. Link is sadly dead. Care to re-up?

    1. I'll put up a new link. Check back again!
