Eat The Music Lyrics
What it's about: Opening ourselves up in relationships to reveal who we really are inside.
Running time: 5:08
Eat The Music was supposed to be the lead single from The Red Shoes in the UK, but after failing to generate any radio interest, it was quickly pulled and replaced by Rubberband Girl.
It was supposed to be issued in the same configurations as Rubberband Girl was: on 7" vinyl, 12" picture disc and 3-track CD single. Like its replacement, the B-side was Big Stripey Lie. The 3rd track (on the 12" and CD) was going to be the Madagascan Mix of Eat The Music (which is the same as the 12" Version released in the US), but they were never pressed.
This so-called Madagascan Mix was eventually issued in the UK as the US Mix, on the And So Is Love CD singles in late 1994. It also appears on the Japanese promo only Moments Of Pleasure set (where it's mislabeled the Madacascan Remix).
With so few in circulation, this CD single has become highly collectible, even though it wasn't issued with a sleeve or inlay card (that I know of). Scan courtesy of Pertti.
