Song of the Day: 'Kiss and Make Up' by Saint Etienne (featuring Donna Savage)

Today is the release of Saint Etienne's new LP, "Home Counties." While I take that in, here's the band's second single from all the way back in 1990, recorded right before they realized Sarah Cracknell was the girl for them. Moira Lambert sang on the first demo of "Kiss and Make Up," but the band liked her take of "Only Love Can Break Your Heart" better, so released that as single one. They then got Donna Savage to re-record this Field Mice song to great effect and released it as the follow-up. (Lambert's very different spin on "Kiss and Make Up" can be heard as a bonus track on "Foxbase Beta," and Cracknell's version on the U.S. and deluxe reissue of "Foxbase Alpha.") Cracknell sang lead on single three, "Nothing Can Stop Us," and the rest is history, as they say.
