"Goodbye to You" is a New Wave single and song by the 1980s band Scandal.
Original release information 
The song was written by band member Zack Smith. It appeared on Scandal's 1982 Scandal EP. The song was also released as a single, and reached #65 on the Billboard Hot 100.
The video shows Patty Smyth in a bright red dress singing the lyrics to various members of the band as they perform the song. Scandal keyboardist Benjy King is shown playing a rare Digital Keyboards Synergy synthesizer, which provided the main 8th note foundation of the track; the video also features Late Show with David Letterman's bandleader and sidekick Paul Shaffer playing a solo -- based on Del Shannon's "Runaway" on an Oberheim OB-Xa.
