About Oh l'Amour

"Oh L'amour" is a song by English synthpop duo Erasure, released in April 1986 as their third single. It was issued by Mute Records in the UK and Sire Records in the U. S. to herald the June release of Erasure's debut album Wonderland, but became the third consecutive commercial failure for the band in both territories. Despite its low chart placing, "Oh L'amour" has proven to be one of Erasure's signature songs, due to its popularity in dance clubs. It remains a favourite among fans, particularly when performed live. Written by Erasure members Vince Clarke and Andy Bell, "Oh L'amour" is a lament from someone experiencing unrequited love ("broke my heart / now I'm aching for you"). The song is an uptempo, synthpop dance track and its popularity was further fueled in dance clubs by the "Funky Sisters Remix", which appeared on the UK 12 inch single and as a bonus track on the U. S. edition of Wonderland. One of the B-sides is a cover version of "Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! (A Man After Midnight)", the first time Erasure covered a song from the ABBA songbook.

Oh l'amour
Broke my heart and now I'm aching for you
Mon amour
What's a boy in love supposed to do?

Looking for you,you were looking for me
Always reaching for you, you were too blind to see
Oh love of my heart why leave me alone?
I'm falling apart, no good on my own

Oh l'amour
Broke my heart and now I'm aching for you
Mon amour
What's a boy in love supposed to do?

Why throw it away? Why walk out on me?
I just live for the day, for the way it should be
There once was a time I had you here by my side
You said I wasn't your kind, only here for the ride

Oh l'amour
Broke my heart and now I'm aching for you
Mon amour
What's a boy in love supposed to do?

No emotional ties, you don't remember my name
I lay down and die, I'm only to blame
Oh love of my heart, it's up to you now
You tore me apart, I hurt inside-out

Oh l'amour
Broke my heart and now I'm aching for you
Mon amour
What's a boy in love supposed to do?
