INFO > To promote the 1999 best of collection, “Only Yazoo”, Mute Records remixed and reissued “Only You”, “Don’t Go”, and “Situation.” The newer reworks of “Situation” by Peter Rauhofer, Richard Vission, and Dave Ralph & company aren’t terribly memorable; however, the release also features mixes from 1990 that were previously unavailable on CD. Nine years later, we finally got the full-length remixes by François Kevorkian, Paul Dakeyne, and Miller & Saunders, along with the 1982 dub.

The enhanced CD also includes the promo video for “Only You.”

INFO > In between Depeche Mode and Erasure, Vince Clarke forged a brief but successful partnership with Alison Moyet as Yazoo (Yaz in the US). “Situation” first appeared as the B-side to Yazoo’s 1982 debut single, “Only You.” François Kevorkian remixed the track for a 12″ release in the US, and created an enduring dance classic. The tune was revisited in 1990 with new mixes from Kevorkian, Youth, and Mute main man Daniel Miller with Mark Saunders. Also, Paul Dakeyne updated “State Farm,” originally the B-side to “Nobody’s Diary.” The second CD single features Kevorkian’s 1982 remix and the original versions of both “Situation” and “State Farm.”

Yaz “Situation” (1982 US 12″)

This was the first cover of the US 12″, before the artist name was changed to Yaz due to a legal complaint from US based Yazoo Records. The Sire Records release features François Kevorkian’s 12″ Remix and 12″ Dub Mix.

The official video for the 1990 remix is rather pointless:
