Wherever you go you will be with me
And when you do talk you'll be talking to me
But just save your words as we walk on by
With the sky full of birds and the dusk approaching

    I used to live in a flat with an uninterrupted view of Winter Hill, I had this on a few times while staring out of my kitchen window and lapping it all up.

    Main riff from this song is all over the TV on sky sports and BBC now as the backing riff to many of the on screen graphics on the football and other sports. Seem to remember one of the tracks from last broadcast was sky sports super sunday theme for years before...

    Guitar coming in at 3.40...mmmm... Yes, I am one of those annoying people who points out the bits they like going "Shut up, it's just getting to the good bit... THERE! No, no not this bit, the next bit..."

    i think the opening also sounds a bit like mmj's "gideon"...

    Of course! total copy. Every time I hear Winter Hill I get all excited and think its Spz, only to be disappointed! Winter Hill is a good song - it's just not Electric Mainline!

    the spiritualized song you mean is electric mainline, it's on pure phase.

    The beginning is a straight rip off from a Spiritualized song that for the life of me I can't remember. It's on LGM though - I think

    It's like my life in a nice, neat package.
