The 24-year-old singer covered the Yazoo‘s 1982 hit “Only You” for the official soundtrack to her new show 13 Reasons Why. This contribution to the soundtrack is a heavy, smoky ballad that, in my opinion, was able to transform an old hit song into a current song, not always this kind of covers of old songs do justice to the original, but in this case I think the result is pretty good.
Originally, the song was written by musician Vince Clarke, he wrote it while with Depeche Mode, but recorded it in 1982 after forming the duo Yazoo with Alison Moyet.
13 Reasons Why is an American Netflix series based on the 2007 novel Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher and adapted by Brian Yorkey for Netflix. Selena Gomez is an executive producer on the series. I haven’t watched yet, but it’s on my list, the story seems to be quite interesting, covering important issues, I’m quite curious to watch it.
