"Over You" is a hit single by the English rock band Roxy Music. The release date of the single, in early May 1980, preceded the release date of their album Flesh and Blood in mid May 1980. The single 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."” [5]

In most European countries, the B-side release on the single 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 Thrill of It All boxset as Manifesto (Remake).
