Is Vince Clarke Banging The Saturdays Or What?

Why is no one pointing out the obvious—that synth wizard Vince Clarke is either a.) boning all five of The Saturdays, 3.) investing a lot of money in The Saturdays, or c.) one of The Saturdays in drag.

The Erasure knob-twiddler (ahem!) has had a hand in three out of four of the British girl group's singles so far:

1. "If This Is Love" (sample's Yaz(oo)'s "Situation")
2. "Issues" (remixed by Vince)
3. "Just Can't Get Enough" (cover of his Depeche Mode debut single)

As for the other Saturdays single, "Up," Clarke was probably up one of those broads when they came up with the title.

Oh, I kid, I kid. Vince is happily married with children. Anyway, "Just Can't Get Enough" is this year's British Comic Relief charity single, out March 2. Below is the vid:

    They must like being 'upped' by Vince cuz the cover song sounds quite good! Methinks they have another Top fiver on their hands.

    This is going in the history archives.

    This is no more cheesy than the Depeche Mode original. The synths sound much better in this than the ones from 30 years ago in the original
