After he left Depeche Mode but before he started Erasure, the synthpop mastermind Vince Clarke formed Yaz, a duo with the singer Alison Moyet. They only recorded one album, 1982’s Upstairs At Eric’s, but that album is absolutely loaded with classics. And one of those classics is “Only You,” a heartsick ballad that still kicks you right in the gut. For the new Netflix show 13 Reasons Why, the pop force Selena Gomez has covered “Only You,” turning its longing into something remote and atmospheric. It’s a good look for everyone involved. Listen to the Gomez version below.
13 Reasons Why streams on Netflix tomorrow. The soundtrack is out now on Interscope.
