Richard X’s remix of Saint Etienne’s Only Love Can Break Your Heart (which itself is a 1990 cover of Neil Young) is melodic ride that resembles the experience of being love-struck. It is beautiful, naive and kind of expected. The euphoria fogs up your judgements and cleanses your senses of all objectivity that, the naive cheesiness of the track actually enhances the overall experience. I heard this heavenly remix very recently as a set opener and I was completely hooked from the very first second. I personally believe the instrumental version gives one the chance of appreciating the melodic subtleties and is also much better suited for dj sets.
