“Gold” is a song recorded by English boy band East 17, taken from the band’s debut album Walthamstow. Written by Tony Mortimer, it was released on 7 November 1992 as the second single from the album. The song was successful in only a few countries, peaking at number two in Sweden, number three in Finland and number 28 in the United Kingdom. The music video depicts the band performing the track whilst wearing angel wings.

Critical reception:
Sharon Mawer from AllMusic said the song “could easily have been recorded by the Pet Shop Boys, as the intro and chorus had their lush orchestration and smooth vocals, although the verses featured Brian Harvey rapping about the futility of war and the need to live together in harmony on this planet.”
Music Week gave it 5 out of 5, adding it as “energetic and slic pop with the Walthamstow boys more in control of their own destiny.”
Mark Frith from Smash Hits said it is “great! memorable, light and poppy”.
