    Like the song, but that film about the bunnies is terrifying.

    One of the saddest songs ever. Like Vincent for pulling your heartstrings.

    1979....... the birth of my first son.... how is it that music can take you right back to an exact time and place? He still has the most amazingly bright eyes!

    Never understood the film as a child (despite being a vegetarian, I couldn't bring myself to feel empathy for rabbits) but I love this song!

    "Watched Watership Down from a very early age" [x2] Made an impression before I understood allegory, which of course is far more obvious in the book. Despite prodding, ex-gf wouldn't allow her daughter the same experience of the video. The song as a standalone could make me cry.

    Watched Watership Down from a very early age and could never identify the emotion that I felt when I watched the scene with this song :(

    This breaks my heart so much right now since my cat Oscar got hit by a car and died today. He was only two. Fuck.
