Go Now

Go Now by The Moody Blues was a UK number 1 hit on Thursday, January 28, 1965 spending 1 week(s) at the top of the UK charts. Before The Moody Blues recorded it, this was an obscure soul single for Bessie Banks, who released it in 1964. Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller produced her recording, and it was written by her husband Larry Banks. It is a heart-rending song where the singer has just broken up with his lover, and can't bear to see her anymore. This was The Moody Blues' second single, the first being the unsuccessful "Lose Your Money." Their next few releases did not fare as well and the lead singer on this track, Denny Laine, whose pained vocals added so much to the single, left the band to set up his own Electric String Band in 1966. He later joined forces with Paul McCartney in Wings.
