Dusty Springfield - Nothing Has Been Proved [CD-Single] (1989)

"Nothing Has Been Proved" is a song and a single release by British singer Dusty Springfield, written and produced by Pet Shop Boys. The song was the second collaboration between Springfield and Pet Shop Boys, following their UK #2 and US #2 hit duet "What Have I Done to Deserve This?" in 1987. "Nothing Has Been Proved" prominently features an orchestral arrangement by Angelo Badalamenti and a soprano saxophone solo by Courtney Pine. Marshall Jefferson provided a dance mix which appeared on the 12" and CD singles. "Nothing Has Been Proved" was produced for the 1989 film Scandal, an account of the Profumo affair, a famous British political scandal in 1963 which severely undermined confidence in the ruling Conservative Party government. The song is heard over the end credits of the film. When film producer Stephen Woolley invited Pet Shop Boys to submit a song for the soundtrack, Neil Tennant remembered a song he had written some years earlier, before the formation of the duo. He and Chris Lowe wrote new music for the song, and with Woolley's approval asked Dusty Springfield to sing it. According to Tennant, Woolley liked the idea of having the song performed by someone who was already well-known at the time of the Profumo affair; in 1963, Dusty was lead singer of the popular group the Springfields and was just about to launch her solo career. The lyrics of the song describe in roughly chronological order the actual course of events and mention, by first name only, the main characters involved: Mandy Rice-Davies, Christine Keeler and Stephen Ward, as well as Lucky Gordon, Johnny Edgecombe and Vickie Barrett. The song also references the popular culture of the time with the line "Please Please Me's number one", a reference to The Beatles' debut album which dominated the sales charts for much of the year and was, as described in the song, number one both at the time of Profumo's resignation in May 1963, and the conclusion of Ward's trial at the end of July. "Nothing Has Been Proved" made #16 in the UK and led to further chart success for Springfield. "Nothing Has Been Proved", was later included as a track on Springfield's successful comeback album Reputation, released in 1990. Pet Shop Boys would later accept another commission from Woolley, to produce music for the 1993 film The Crying Game. The original Pet Shop Boys demo recording of "Nothing Has Been Proved", with lead vocals by Neil Tennant, was included on the expanded re-issue of their 1988 album Introspective in 2001.
