The Red Shoes Lyrics
What it's about: A girl puts on a pair of enchanted ballet slippers and can't stop dancing until she breaks the spell. It's inspired by a character in the Michael Powell-directed film of the same name.
Running time: 4:01
The cover says this one track promo was released on April 5, the same day as the commercial CD single. I'm sure it was actually shipped to the media a couple weeks earlier, but I don't know exactly when.
