The opening track from Yaz's debut (and their second UK single, reaching #3 in the summer of 1982), "Don't Go" is as infectiously bubbly as "Just Can't Get Enough," songwriter Vince Clarke's hit with Depeche Mode from the previous year. However, the song betrays a new musical attitude on the part of Clarke and producer/co-conspirator E.C. Radcliffe, boosting the song's lower frequencies in the manner of Giorgio Moroder's Eurodisco singles of the late '70s (as opposed to the more trebly, post-punk sound of Depeche Mode's Speak and Spell album, which Clarke primarily wrote) and bringing the electronic drums more to the fore. On a Depeche Mode album, not even that would be enough to make the song genuinely danceable, thanks to David Gahan's pleasant but weedy voice, but Alison Moyet's far more assertive growl and purr suits the overtly sensual lyrics perfectly. As the rest of Upstairs at Eric's would go on to prove, "Don't Go" made it clear that Yaz were not simply a Depeche Mode retread.
