Download: 4:35 In The Morning – Saint Etienne (mp3)
During our very first telephone conversation I mentioned that I liked Saint Etienne and it wasn’t just that she liked them too which pleasantly surprised me, but I was absolutely gobsmacked that she’d even heard of them in the first place (very rare among girls in America.) I knew at that moment there was a good chance I was going to fall in love with her.
Happy Valentine’s Day.
