Great song, always has been and always will be one the top one hundred of all time.
This song was actually wrote to counter a popular song of that time by captian and tuneal. (SP?)
"Love will keep us together"
Nouvella Vague does a great cover of this song.
<3 love this song so much.

LOVE. LOVE. AND LOVE this song !!
It hurts to accept truthfulness of the lyric
It is "all my failings exposed"? I thought it was "all my FEELINGS exposed"...
So natural. Very human
Awesome song. Makes you think about life and relationship s .
Ian lives thru us all he has never left this earth and probably never will. We sing along we wear the bands name sometimes even tattoo it. No one can replicate the man and his voice, all we can do is be thankful he left us all that he did..
Best band, although short lived, this is one my favorites!!!
This is the most melancholy song ever
Better than the live version from 'Let the Movie Begin'
Great road trip music.
I listen to this at least once a day.

Classic
Fantastic song! :D
This is a great song. It's too bad the lead singer died so tragically. I recommend the movie.
Im obsessed with this song! I love it.
Best song ever!

"When it does we'll kiss each other goodbye, remember the good times we shared and look forward to the ones to come."
without words, that's simple perfect- way ahead of time and so up to date no matter if 70s, 80s, 90s, 20s, 21 century to be continued, as history shows we are not learning.... . .
One of my all time favorite songs! Ian had such a hard life and amazing vocals I wish he still was here with us!
The vocals would be okay if they were enunciated more clearly. Also, I can't help but wonder if the title is a response to "Love Will Keep Us Together" by Captain and Tennille.
that`s exactly the truth.love will tear us apart.
I think the main songwriter usually likes to do the vocals in a band. The problem is, the main songwriter may not be the best vocalist.

the vocals are horrible, it must be meant as a joke
@Julia It wasn't a love triangle IN the band. It was a love triangle with Ian,his wife Debbie and his mistress Annik.

Great song though,nonet h e l e s s .
the drums
Odd sounding
its about a love triangle in the band ...sad

This song breaks my heart, but I cannot stop listening to it. I LOVE IT!!
Best song ever! Reminds me of my depressed, dark teens back in the early 80's!

I will not agree with the last two comments because this is THE best song ever written. yep. i said it.
I still cannot believe that this song was actually released in the seventies. It was at least a decade before its time. I will second the previous comment...It IS one of the best songs ever written.
Definietly dark and tragic, but also very beautiful. One of the best songs ever written.
I used to put on Joy Division when I did my taxes. It made the process seem cheerful by comparison.
