Heaven 17, please remember, were not even intended to be a group. In the beginning was the British Electric Foundation, or B. Ian Craig Marsh, co-founder of the Human League, would join Ware along with Glenn Gregory as lead vocalist the man who would have been the original Human League singer had he not been unavailable. But its Heaven 17 which would endure and help shape the future of modern music for over thirty years. Their first album, Penthouse And Pavement, is, and remains, a modern classic. It felt like a race to get the thing done really. There was no mediation involved. It literally was a lot of ideas coming out simultaneously but also with an intensity which meant that you could realise them very quickly. It was like opening a giant tap for a hose and it was just blasting out. Martyn Ware.

I remember the record company telling me it was going to be a hit. Mortimer plays piano on the track which is sung by a choir local school children, and part of the proceeds of the song will go to Calm Campaign Against Living Miserably , which aims to prevent male suicide. My brother committed suicide, and Calm saved over people last year from suicide. Stay Another Day was released in late November , and went on to become the Christmas number one that year after a producer decided the sad ballad could be festive if some bells were thrown on it. Mortimer won a Ivor Novello award for writing the song, and although it is often claimed that he makes six figures each Christmas from royalties, the popstar laughed off the claims. You can donate to Calm here , or contact them from 5pm to midnight on 58 58 For emotional support you can call the Samaritans hour helpline on , email jo samaritans. Follow Metro. However, the story behind the song is one of great tragedy for singer and writer Tony Mortimer. Need support?

I think we all just assumed that the lyrics are about the pain of being dumped and how we tend to try and put off the end of relationships, but, while songwriter Tony Mortimer intended them to be ambiguous, they were actually written about a very sad event in his life.
