Song: There She Goes
Album: La's (2CD Reissue)
Released: March 31, 2008

Classic britpop track reissued on 7 Inch in support of the reissuing of the classic La's album The La's on 2 CDs which was originally released way back in 1990. The single features the previously unreleased John Leckie version of their classic track 'There She Goes'. Not quite sure what this sounds like as I haven't come across anywhere to listen to it. However, the video below has the classic track.
