Saint Etienne's "Only Love Can Break Your Heart" Video is Still Super Cute

by Gary Pini

Super-cute video from 1990 by Saint Etienne (who, by the way, are one of Mr. Mickey's all-time fave bands) for "Only Love Can Break Your Heart." It was the first single off the London band's debut album and is a cover of Neil Young's 1970 hit single.  The two kids -- Bob Stanley and Pete Wiggs -- that started the band had originally wanted to use different singers for the tracks on the album and they had Moira Lambert do the vocals here. Eventually they made another singer, Sarah Cracknell, a permanent member.  An indie-dance classic, plus this print of the video is crisp, clean and easy to watch.
