I am so happy to see this. I have been trying to find this for the longest. Thanks I-tunes! "She won't be home" is one of my favorite x-mas songs.
Awesome! I had the tape cassette for this album when I was a kid and totally forgot about it since its a short one. I love it just like all of their albums!!!! iTunes needs to get all of Erasure albums (not just the hits that were on the radio) to help me replace my cassettes since old time Erasure fans probably missing them in their iTunes collection! All of Erasure's songs are great and you are missing out if you only buy their greatest hits because a lot of their b-sides that never got radio play are some of my favorites!
This was Erasure's Christmas single in the UK in 1988, and made it all the way to #2, led by the driving force of one of their most irresistible songs, "Stop." But the other three tracks are great as well--"The Hardest Part" is a lovely ballad, "Knocking on Your Door" is a great hi-nrg track, and "She Won't Be Home" is Erasure's one stab at writing a Christmas song. The "Stop" remix was heavily played in clubs in the US in the Spring of 1989, and made it to #5 on the Billboard Dance Chart.
Im so happy!
Just last week I was looking for she wont be home. A must for any Erasure fan. I have not heard these songs since the 80's. enjoy.
