''Our label didn’t want us to work with Dusty Springfield, they wanted us to work with Tina Turner or someone like that. I remember the director of EMI going: ‘I can get you Streisand!’ But we wanted Dusty.'' - Neil Tennant
''Dusty didn't know quite what the group wanted, but Tennant explained they just wanted to hear that husky, breathy voice.'' - Chris Welch (journalist)
"Someone who's in this relationship that they know they shouldn't be in. It's this dysfunctional relationship, and they don't have the strength to get out. And 'what have I, what have I, what have I done to deserve this?' - there's a real sense that they shouldn't be there, but they're basically a slave to this obsessive love.'' - Allee Willis (songwriter)
