1982 Singles # 21 Prefab Sprout


Their first single and what a statement. Not a hit, at least not in the national charts, but still one of Prefab's greatest songs and one which immediately indicated what they would be capable of. Paddy's lyrical gifts, the romanticism, their way with special, incisive melody. A wistfulness and wisdom that seemed beyound their years, Expressing the pain McAloon felt, being apart from his girlfriend, who was studying at the University of Limoges, hence the title.
