"Everytime You Go Away" is a song written and composed by Daryl Hall. It was first recorded in 1980 by the American duo Hall & Oates but was not released as a single. The song became an international hit, under slightly different spelling, when covered by English singer Paul Young in 1985. There have also been several other versions of this song.
The original version of "Everytime You Go Away" appeared on Hall & Oates's 1980 studio album, Voices, although it was not released as a single. Hall & Oates also recorded it for their 1985 concert album Live at the Apollo.
English singer Paul Young recorded a cover of "Every Time You Go Away" for his studio album The Secret of Association in 1985. His cover features a combination of echoed piano, the distinctive fretless bass of Pino Palladino, as well as a Coral electric sitar and Ovation Spanish acoustic guitar which were both played by John Turnbull.
Young's version hit number one on the Billboard Hot 100 on July 27, 1985 and was one of two top 10 hits he had on the U.S. pop singles chart. It also topped the U.S. adult contemporary chart for two weeks. The song peaked at No. 4 in the UK, Young's home country. The song won British Video of the Year at the 1986 Brit Awards. It was one of the songs he played at Live Aid.
