Friday Fun: Saint Etienne

The other morning, I jumped in the car to make a Dunkin run before work, and turned the radio on to WLUW, the college radio station from Loyola University Chicago, located near home. Occasionally my old self tunes in to the college station to see what the kids are listening to nowadays. To my surprise and delight, the song they were playing was this one: "Only Love Can Break Your Heart" by Saint Etienne, from fall 1991, from the album "Foxbase Alpha." An album I probably purchased the week it came out, from Let it Be Records in downtown Minneapolis, because they were the hip local place to find new and unique albums from the UK and Europe.

No, in 1991, I did not know that it was a Neil Young cover. Enjoy.
