The La's

Open Your Heart EP

Open Your Heart was written in the Summer of 1986 and started out as a poem by La's founder / member Mike Badger. Lee Mavers then developed the simple stabbing riff on the verse. Lee admitted later the song was the main influence for Timeless Melody. The B-Side live versions of I.O.U. and Feelin' have both never been released before with I.O.U. being recorded in the famous Stables where the band rehearsed, whilst Feelin' was recorded at the Croyden Underground in 1987.
