PREFAB SPROUT ~ Donna Summer

I'm a sucker for well-crafted pop songs that break your heart. I'm a sucker for Prefab Sprout.

The song Donna Summer was a b-side on the 12" ep for their hit song When Love Breaks Down (from Two Wheels Good). I found it in a little store in Spokane, Washington and when I first heard it I bet I played it 25 times in a row. It's gorgeous, melancholy, and far too short. Listen:
