Over You is a hit single by British band Roxy Music, taken from their 1980 album Flesh and Blood. It reached #5 on the UK Singles Chart, as next single "Oh Yeah" would do. Phil Manzanera recalls: “"In 1979, I had just built my first recording studio and I rang up Bryan and asked if he’d like to check it out. We decided to have a jam together, Bryan on bass and me on guitar with a rhythm box. Within five minutes we had written this track and it reached number three in the charts."” [1]

The single B-side in all countries (except USA) was a re-recording of the title track of their 1979 LP Manifesto. The new version was a new arrangement with a shorter intro, and the lyrics were broken up into several verses, while the original was continuous. This new version was re-released on the The Thrill of It All boxset as Manifesto (Remake).
