Song of the Day, February 22: It Won’t Be Long by Alison Moyet

MoyetIWBLToday’s song is It Won’t Be Long by Alison Moyet. After leaving Yazoo, the singer had a few very successful years on the British charts, but began to chafe under label pressure to keep churning out similar-sounding hits. She took four years to craft her third album, Hoodoo, and the result was powerful, but too somber for the Sony. Most of the tracks were written with Pete Glenister, who also worked with Kirsty MacColl. The standout track was the lead single, It Won’t Be Long. It’s a powerful song of invisible forces and emotional turmoil. Moyet’s voice is finer than ever, and the musical setting is darkly danceable.

Enjoy this great song today.
