Biography

When East 17 stumbled into the Walthamstow, England limelight in late 1991 they had little idea that their rabble-rousing brand of boy-band pop would create such a storm. Indeed, at the outset, a young Tony Mortimer had been on the verge of signing a solo deal with London Records until ex-Pet Shop Boys manager Tom Watkins suggested that what the world needed was a boy-band antidote to Take That and a band that bad girls could fall in love with. Of course, what Mortimer says now is that he really thought the world needed a UK version of New Kids On The Block and when you think about it this is not a million miles from the inevitable truth. The resultant chaos produced a 1992 debut single, House Of Love, which sold 600,000 copies and a debut album that hit the No.1 spot the following year. The band went on to achieve 18 Top Twenty hits (including Deep, Steam, Let It Rain, It’s Alright and Christmas No.1 Stay Another Day, the latter remaining No.1 for five weeks) as well as four Top Ten albums and sales of over twenty million records. And when East 17 finally split in 1997 it was heralded (and still remains) one of the greatest break-ups in pop history.

    Baby if you've got to go away
    Don't think I can take the pain

    Lyrics
    The very first time that I saw your brown eyes, your lips said "Hello" and I said "Hi". I knew right there you were the one. But I was caught up in physical attraction but to my satisfaction, baby, you were more than just a friend.
    And if you ever (ever fall), fall in love again (again) now, baby you must make sure (you) that the lady is a friend. And if you ever (ever fall) fall in love so true (true) now baby, you must be sure (you) that she feels the same way too.
    If I said that I would be your one and only, promise that you'd never leave me lonly. I just want to be the one you need. I just want to be the one who serve you, sometimes I feel as if I don't deserve you. I cherish every moment that we shared.
    And if you ever (ever fall), fall in love again
    (again) now, baby you must make sure (you) that the lady is a friend. And if you ever (ever fall), fall in love so true (true) now baby, you must be sure (you) that she feels the same way too.
