AllMusic Review by

"Into Your Arms" entered the consciousness via the Love Positions, a little-known Australian band who cut the tune for their Billiepeebup LP -- in 1992, the Lemonheads recorded a delicate 90-second cover as a seeming throwaway that wrapped the British version of their Mrs. Robinson single, and a year later it took on new life again, this time in a shimmering jangle pop version that proved to be the lead single from the Come On Feel the Lemonheads LP. In all its incarnations, what's remained constant about "Into Your Arms" is its beauty and simplicity -- it's that rare modern love song free of snark, articulating themes of comfort and security with uncommon simplicity and sincerity. Exclusive to this CD single are three reliably eccentric and well-executed covers -- Cole Porter's high-society vignette "Miss Otis Regrets," the Nightcrawlers' garage rock classic "Little Black Egg," and Buddy Holly's lovely "Learning the Game."
