ALISON MOYET "THAT OLE DEVIL CALLED LOVE"
By Mark Nobes
"That Ole Devil Called Love" was originally released by Billie Holiday way back in the 1940s. This superbly performed, smoochy cover was Alison Moyet's fourth single release as a solo artist, and reached #2 in the UK during March 1985.
With Moyet having the perfect voice for such a jazzy number, the song was released as a non-album single and became an instant hit. It followed three Top 40 hit singles released from the singer-songwriter's debut album Alf. These were; "Love Resurrection" (#10), "All Cried Out" (#8) and "Invisible" (#21).
