In A Big Country

Lyrics

I never saw you look like this without a reason
Another promise fallen through, another season passes by you
I never took the smile away from anybody's face
And that's a desperate way to look for someone who is still a child

I never saw you look like this without a reason

Funny how people say 80's music was bad. Maybe since was teen during this time, you had new wave, hair band, etc... Thought was pretty good. Seems even better now hearing these songs

I like it , but I'm not sure why !
Scotland isn't a big country.
The lyrics are wrong.
How can anyone not feel happy listening to this song?
I liked this song so much.I bought the 45 R.P.M. before the record came out.Great song!Great times!
STAY ALIVE!!

Remember being in love with Stuart Adamson & kissing all his pictures. :-) How i miss the fun 1980s.
One of the few songs from the 80's that I'm proud to say that I still like!
This is not that great compare to the most glorious 80d
Awesome drummer

wrong lyric arrangement
Music Television MTV good memories
Brings back memories
Great song..,..awe s o m e tune!!!! Makes me want to wear a kilt and run around the countryside.
Loch Ness Version of U2????? Awesome Song! 8.2/10
The image of 3 wheelers, rolling hills and a guitar that sounds like bag pipes. Awesomeness!
Why do I imagine the Amish whenever I hear this song? :)
brendao37
started with The Cars and got this song. :)
LOVE THIS SONG !!!!!!!!
timbensen--y o u ' r e cool!
This song never gets old...unfort u n a t e l y , I do...lol.
Another one of those "epitome of the 80s" tunes. I still tap my feet when i hear this. Brings back some good memories. (sigh)
I don't give a f-f-f-flip if they never had another hit. The open harmonies and the lyrics and the guitar riff ROCK. This song is MAGNIFIDENT. And if you don't think so...BITE ME.
Best New Artist of 1983 and never to be heard from again....it' s a shame. I've always loved this song.
heard this song in the grocery store the other day and I was grooving in the aisle
Big Country has little hits.

Ah the splendid 80s *sigh*
I never could understand why these guys weren't more popular. Everything before Peace in Our Time is great.

All the great music is now gone! Long live the 80's!
GREAT Song! Makes me smile

Loved this song, where did all the good music go?????
Did the group release anything else after the singer's suicide?

I love Big Country - one of my fav. songs - I wish they would do something (more music) soon - I think they would be a big hit these days.

One of the best songs to come out of the eighties...g r e a t sound...puts me in a good mood every time I hear it.
bcovahey
This is one of my all-time favorites. The bagpipe effect blew me away the first time I heard it.
This is one of the best songs of all time! Such an uplifting song..
This group is great! lol They do not make 'em like this anymore- I love this group because I am probably the biggest all-time fan of Brit and European music!!
