“Shut Your Eyes” is the first German single and the sixth single in total from Snow Patrol’s 2006 album Eyes Open. It is the 4th track on the album. The single was released Germany only on 20 April 2007 in three versions. It was later released in the Netherlands on 21 September.
The various B-sides featured are taken from a Snow Patrol gig at Columbiahalle, Berlin on 9 February 2007.

    Not saying they aren't an original band. However, the beginning reminds me of the American Analog Set. Either way, it's still good stuff.

    Amazing. I heard it just as I was about to leave a store and couldn't bring myself to leave before the song ended. Bought the album right when I got home.
