Andrew McCarthy (2:56)

Cover of Built on Sand

From Built on Sand

Written by Bob Stanley, Pete Wiggs & Sarah Cracknell
Produced by Saint Etienne

Recorded Winter 1996
Released December 1999 on Built on Sand

Notes “Oh, what a headache this one gave us. Our tribute to the St. Elmo’s Fire star never quite worked out - this is the demo which sounds better to us than either the lost vocal version or the Sylvie B-side. The original lyric was a haunting tribute to the originator of the ‘eye method’.” Bob Stanley, 1999.

The finished version of this song was released as Hill Street Connection.
