Little Bird / Love Song for a Vampire
1992: BMG/RCA 7432112883-2
Between this single and the UK and US releases of Diva, I have three versions of Little Bird even without counting the Utah Saints remix, plus I have the pleasantly hypnotic NJoi version on a vinyl 12" single. I didnt originally intend to have so many versions of this in my collection, really I just wanted the UK version and the Utah Saints mix it just turned into a bigger challenge than I had foreseen.
Good thing I actually *like* the damned song! And the Utah Saints mix is good fun. The Single Version is, to me, weak compared to the album releases because its too reliant on little beefing-up augmentations that distract from the heart of the song.
Love Song For a Vampire has never quite touched me perhaps it just came across as too gothic, albeit bombastically elegant gothic.
