“Discreet Affair” is a song and demo track written and composed by Dave Ball before he formed Soft Cell with Marc Almond. It wasn't released and there is no known recordings of it.

Origin[edit | edit source]

“Discreet Affair” is one of the first, earliest songs written and composed by Dave Ball during his time in Leeds Polytechnic. It was one of the songs he showed to Marc Almond who worked in the same university's sound studio on soundtracks for his own performances, before they formed Soft Cell together.[1]

There is no known recordings of the song, so its lyrics and meaning are unknown, and it is unknown if Almond performed it later as part of Soft Cell.
