"Not Over Yet" is a song by Grace, released as a single in 1995 peaking in the UK Singles Chart at #6 and topping the Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart in the United States. The song was originally released in 1993 under the alias State of Grace. Lead vocals and backing vocals on the track were performed by Patti Low. The lead vocals were replaced with the new Grace front woman Dominique Atkins' vocals for the release of the Grace album "If I Could Fly" in 1996, although Low's backing vocals remained in place for the chorus and adlibs. This Atkins / Low combination of vocals remained in place for the subsequent re-releases and remixes of Not Over Yet.

Remixes[edit]

In 1999, "Not Over Yet" was re-released by Planet Perfecto, an Oakenfold pseudonym, and featured re-recorded vocals and new mixes. It again reached the Top 20, peaking at number #16.

A remixed version with new vocals (by Ryan Tedder of OneRepublic), only featuring the words "not over yet" from the original appeared on Oakenfold's 2006 album A Lively Mind as "Not Over". The vocals of this version could be seen as an answer song to the original track, as the vocals cover the same topic - the end of a relationship; and are sung by a man.

In 2001 BT released the album "R&R (Rare & Remixed)". A remix of Not Over Yet was included on this album. It is track 5 on disk 1. The credit for this song is listed as "Grace (BT's Spirit of Grace)"

Klaxons did their own version of the song, slightly re-titled "It's Not Over Yet" and was included on their first album Myths of the Near Future. The track was released as a single in June 2007.

During BBC Radio 1's Live Lounge with Jo Whiley on 8 February 2008, Goldfrapp performed a cover version of the song with a more acoustic sound than the club-style original.

In 2011 new remixes by perfecto records were released under the name Grace - Not Over Yet and it was announced via tilts official Facebook page that a new track was in the process of being written for Grace/Dominique Atkins. Remixes for the re-release of the single include Max Graham vs. Protoculture, Jonas Hornblad, and Robert Vadney mixes.
