    Can't believe it's taken so long for me to give this song the attention it deserves, absolutely amazing, great lyrically and Nicky's vocals make it even more special. Definitely see the 'You're So Great' connection below, both songs have similar qualities and are beautiful songs. Pretty much got it on constant repeat at the moment!

    fantastic song! the full version on the lyrics sheet is an interesting read too. must have been difficult for Nicky to rearrange them into this song

    My favourite on the album, and Nicky's voice is perfect on it.

    this reminds me of blur's you're so great, in terms of having a different singer bringing out the innocent beauty of the track, fantastic :D

    Prefer Nicky's vocals on Lady Lazarus but this is a good effort. Beautiful song.

    The song itself comes close to perfection but to be honest I'm really not happy with the vocals.

    Underworld have done a respectable remix. Hiding nicky's voice!! Suppose that was the charm of the original.
