This is just an absolutely superb song. I've seen them so many times both with Stuart and later with Simon. One of the greatest bands ever. Still listening always will, seen them twice, brilliant, rest in peace Stuart xxx. I was working in Aberdeen in up from Harlow so Big Country have a special place in my heart and this is my favourite.
Westy SA a legend! I wonder if this song was aimed at a specific person? I gather Adamson had a broken relationship. Perhaps this was aimed at his ex. The Edge said in the eulogy he gave for Stuart's funeral that this guy wrote the songs that U2 wished they could write. Thats big coming from the guy who penned nearly all of the U2 classics. These guys weren't Irish but Scottish. Big country is more talented than U2. This song just keeps bouncing around my head. The music is beautifully controlled and understated. The voice is perfect; not forced, so relaxed and smooth. Little middle bit - I love the sun, and I love the rain - perfect in every way.
Best Valentine's Day song to play for the one you love. We miss you Stuart Adamson. Keep playing songs for those in the Afterlife.
Wish you were here. You are so right,I already miss the songs we could have had if Stuart's demons hadn't got the better of him. I so love this song. When I'm having a bad day, I play it loud and long when I get home as a pick me up.
Regret I only managed to see the band live once and never made one of the legendary Barrowland gigs. RIP Stuart. The soundtrack of my youth. Once and forever!!! I was 8 years old when I saw them in Milan. It was thirty years ago. The memory of a concert to bring with me for a lifetime!!! Stuart wrote to many songs like this and every time he brought them out of the box for a show with Mark, Tony and Bruce I'ed cry my eyes out. With you All the way Gareth e I am so with you.
Big country: rogers leading by example
Never cried with so much joy and fucking passion over music in my 50 years on this earth. With Simon Hough on Lead Thanks so much for supporting my post! Please feel free to share. The tear in the eye is from the memories of past loves lost but still there's hope.
Big country's stuart adamson dead in hotel
It amazes me that Stuart never considered himself to be a good singer. I find his voice to be so unique, so full of emotion, so honest and real. Another testament to his humility and this song a testament to his gentleness of spirit. Nobody that I've ever heard sounds like him.
Add Tony Butler's higher harmonies and the vocals were so powerful and moving. Big Country's music is so heroic to me. I agree. Just the other day I let my mum listen to a few BC songs und was quite disappointed when she told me that she doesn't get anything out of Stuarts voice and doesn't particularly like it at all.
Normally she's keen on characteristic voices.
Big country: scotland's greatest albums: the crossing
Sure sure, tastes differ. It's just hardly comprehensible for me, loving him so much myself. And he was good performing live, too Tell your mother I said this:Compared to the likes of what we have to listen to with today's music with talentless hacks like Lady Gaga, Miley Cyrus, Drake, Nicki Minaj just to name a few I hold Stuart's voice in high regard with the likes of Luciano Pavarotti! Yes, I know what you mean. But at least we have those classic, and very important recordings as well as all those live performances on YT that we missed.
And WE know how wonderful his singing was, as well as his songwriting and guitar playing! Unfortunately, some people just don't get it. Love your mum anyway.
This song still hits me like no other modern day slow song can. Noone writes like this any more. It makes me really sad that I'll never be able to see him in concert. I got cheated. It was the only dream that stayed with me past all the silly dreams we all have during youth. I never stopped wanting to see him in concert. The questions I have for him are never ending. What a great time it must have been to be his friend. They are all touching mate, the King of Emotion no one else can touch him. No problem James, happy to share the music of such a great and totally underrated band :.
Thanks Carl I want to thank you for posting all these great songs. I love Big Country's Music and you have helped me to hear their greatness You might want to just go ahead and buy the whole album The Seer, I t is great from start to finish. I can listen to this over and over!! This is beautiful, just like all their songs.
Greatness, they were This song brought back many great moments when I was a teenager. I really love this song back in An almost forgotten ballad song from Big Country.
In a big country
Legend band, i saw them live a few times in the mid and late 80's when i was a teenager, i got one of the drummers drumsticks after one gig, still have it in a box in the attic May his soul find joy in the hereafter. Life is so full of hardship as it is; all we can do is to take care and create something good in our time.
Autopsy showed a high level of alcohol in his bloodstream, but whether he committed suicide because of being drunk and by poor judgement or whether something else happened, there is no evidence to tell. This happened in Hawaii, a place mostly known for happiness and good life. Some documentation suggests he was unhappy with his life and artistic career.
If only there was more love songs like this 1!! This is the song that confirmed for me that Big Country are more than just a band!! Adamsons voice sends shivers down my spine everytime i hear this!! I have it and will it if I can't find it on youtube.
It is a song that saved me from myself thousands of times. Very nice job with your choice of photographs to represent the sentiment of this beautiful BC ballad. Truly an amazingly brilliant band.

And I love reading the comments from my fellow BC fans who champion this great group and who realize how much we lost when Stuart died. Such a huge loss. This song has a special place in my heart, it reminds me that we all can suffer from loneliness and loss of loved ones or other important persons in our lives. I often wonder what Stuart would have been able to create if he had stayed alive. Miss him a lot and what he represented. Really, really good video!! And another masterpiece from Stuart - so special - so missed.
