One More Chance for Bobby Orlando

1984 proved to be a critical year for 30 year old Neil Tennant and 25 year old Chris Lowe. Their short love affair with producer, Bobby Orlando, spawned their now infamous "West End Girls". But if you thought this disco crush ended there then you are terribly wrong.
Out of Bobby's tender loins spurted out "One More Chance". The song was intended for the lovely Divine by the name of "Rock Me", but ended up in the mouth of a fledgling, later legendary, Pet Shop Boys.

Chris Lowe later had his way with this song.

Don't take my word for it but I prefer the original:
