According to the Virginia Plain Songfacts, lead singer Bryan Ferry took the song’s title from a painting he did titled “Virginia Plain,” when he was an art student.

    Great, great song, but I'm forever reminded of the 'Big Train' sketch where a dying Chairman Mao (Kevin Eldon) rises from his death bed to deliver an absolute KILLER version of this song. Have a look on YouTube! Ha ha ha ha!!! [2]

    Brian Eno is a being from another planet, and that suits me just fine.

    There had been strong rumours amid throw away gossip that the music industry was about to be infiltrated by a superior being from a parallel universe, it's never gonna happen they scoffed and then this happened, still hard to believe the Master created this as his maiden voyage, the beginning of the greatest story ever told, surely this man is the Son Of God

    In my humble opinion, the greatest combination of synths and guitars. Ever.
