Saint Etienne:: Only Love Can Break Your Heart

I don't know why, but I never tire of Saint Etienne. This was their first hit, a cover of Neil Young's "Only Love Can Break Your Heart" and with Moira Lambert on vocals, which was just before Sarah Cracknell joined the band. Three versions of the song are on the player at the bottom, including the original by Neil Young and the Weatherall remix of Saint Etienne's version.

After the 90s, Moira {CBCr3} moved to Victoria, BC, released an album in 2006, "Coming Up Roses" and is known to play eclectic music of folksy electronica-tinged pop. Surprisingly, I'm her only fan thus far.

I always appreciated Moira's vocals on "Only Love Can Break Your Heart", which was a bit more somber than Sarah's. Ah, I'd love to hear her do a folk pop cover of Neil Young's "Harvest"...
