A shoegaze classic from 1988 (blimey, that went quick...) - Mercy Seat by Ultra Vivid Scene.

 

Played on Jeffries duet, in the key of B, which sits quite nicely on that keyboard.

A bit more blurb about the recording on the soundcloud page.

Stuart,

 

Thank you for introducing me to this song, and thank you for your other recordings.  I find the blend of your vocals, your phrasing and playing very compelling.

Thank you Frank -- much appreciated.

 

It's hard to believe, from a vantage point in 2016, that these sorts of songs were selling well enough to be in the top 40 singles chart. With the exception of Lana del Rey I'm not sure anyone mainstream enough to receive radio airplay is writing similarly literate lyrics these days.
