LAMB's "Gorecki", is based on the Third Symphony by the Polish composer of the same name. It's a track that builds with orgasmic certainty into a very personal recognition of the wonder of one-in-a-million love and the obliterative bliss it can generate.

In an interview Louise explains: "It's about when I first heard Gorecki's Third Symphony with someone who is very important to me. It was one of life's perfect moments. I was completely moved to tears, and still am, when I hear the Third Symphony; I can safely say it's one of the most moving pieces of music ever written, and that's not just because of the context in which l first heard it." 1

The single reached 30th position in the UK chart in march 1997.

During an interview with Stefanie Elrick, for nowthenmagazine.com, Lou said “ ‘Gorecki’ is a special song. It always has been. It was written about a very special moment and it’s got its own life. Songs do that. They take on their own life force and the meaning changes through time.”
