And So Is Love Lyrics
What it's about: Love, like life, is not perfect; but as we get older, we learn that our loved ones matter most (I think).

Rubberband Girl (US Mix) Lyrics
What it's about: Kate encourages us to be more flexible and resilient in this one -- in short, to "go with the flow".
Running time: 3:49
And So Is Love entered the UK chart in the second week of its release and immediately peaked at #26, on November 19, 1994.  It held that position for one week, and spent a total of two weeks on the chart.
This 7" picture disc was packaged in a 12" poster sleeve (shown here) which opened up to a huge 40"x60" poster with some great pictures of Kate (that I can't fit into my scanner...).
The Rubberband Girl (US Mix) on the B-side is a true Kate anomaly. It's a disco remix (very different from the original), recorded in 1994 for the US market -- but it was never officially released anywhere but the UK!
