    This song is so good! I mean, "If you're feeling sinister" good.

    Really like the harmonies & vocal change in this, Stevie's voice is a great touch.

    Funny, when I just heard "In The Country" for the first time, I thought it sounded like "Wrapped Up in Books"!

    Late night, thinking about a girl, wishing I was somewhere else. That's what this song is to me.

    @Kilgal It sounds like 'In the country' by Cliff.

    <-- The biggest introvert of them all recognizes this song as one of the definitely best things that ever happened to him.

    reminds me a lot of my early years, when i was a very introspective thinker/reader and rarely explored the world outside of my room. if you're an introvert, this song can't be anything but magical for you.

    This song reminds me of an older Cliff Richards tune though I can't remember which one.

    The emo tag needs to be deleted. @ Zen_Arcade(hope my spanish is ripe enough) ¿Sé, el derecho patético? Las necesidades de la etiqueta de emo para ser borradas para todo.
