Proof, if one needs it, that Neil Young is one of the great songwriters comes in the way his songs can be adapted to new and unexpected ends. The opening track and first single from Saint Etienne's debut album is a perfect example of the trio's cross-cultural aesthetic. Pete Wiggs and Bob Stanley were, at heart, indie kids coming at electronic dance music from a wholly pop perspective, where melody and lyrics are at least as important as beats and samples. As a result, their dancefloor take on Young's "Only Love Can Break Your Heart," from his 1970 breakthrough After the Goldrush, both completely reworks the song and is surprisingly true to the original. The simple folk-rock arrangement of the original is replaced by sequencers, electronic drums, and lockstep synthesizers, but Moira Lambert's deliberately wavery vocals echo Young's phrasing in a way that sounds more like tribute than imitation. The ending of the song is entirely different, with Lambert repeating the key line "I was only thinking, games that I was playing" over and over at odd intervals over a thumping beat that, on the album version, cuts out abruptly, leading directly into the oddball sound collage "Wilson."
