Todays 12"

I was looking through my vinyl-cases and looking for good 80s music. And I found this. So good song, one of the top 50 of the 80s. 
I missed this one the last time i was DJing at a 80-90s party. But next time it will go with me... I promise!
Heres Erasure with Sometimes...

Erasure are an English synthpop duo, consisting of songwriter and keyboardist Vince Clarke and singer Andy Bell. Erasure entered the music scene in 1985 with their debut single "Who Needs Love Like That". Following the release of their fourth single "Sometimes", the duo established itself on the UK Singles Chart and became one of the most successful artists of the mid-to-late-1980s and early-1990s.
From 1986 to 1997, Erasure achieved twenty-four consecutive Top 20 hits in the UK, while they only had 3 Top 20 hits in the USA (on the Billboard Hot 100) : "A Little Respect", "Chains of Love" and "Always". By 2009, 34 of their 45 singles & EPs (of which 8 out of the 45 were not chart eligible in the UK) had made the UK Top 40, with 17 climbing into the Top 10.
Labelled "the definitive synthpop superstars", the duo are most popular in their native UK and Mainland Europe (especially Germany, Denmark and Sweden) and also in South America (especially in Argentina, Brazil, Chile and Peru). To date, Erasure have sold over 25 million albums worldwide.
The band is also popular within the LGBT community for which the openly gay singer Andy Bell has become a gay icon.
