The song was released in the UK on Mute Records in 1985 as a prelude to their debut album Wonderland. At the time it was considered a failure, especially when compared to Vince Clarke’s success with his previous groups Depeche Mode and Yazoo.

Who Needs Love Like That” is an uptempo pop song written by Vince Clarke. The lyrics are a cast-off to a destructive love relationship, in which the protagonist asks “who needs love like that?” The music video takes place in a mock Western, with Clarke, Andy Bell and various extras dressed as cowboys. Bell appears in a dual role, the other being woman’s drag.

  2. Had a shit day at work, felt ill, was depressed about the news around the world, so I put this on the stereo and….was magically transported away from all my troubles. Thanks Erasure!
