Think I'll walk out in the rain
Called you time and time again
I've got no reply, you've gone
Reached the point of no return
The more I see the more I stand alone
I see the end of the line
Were you ever lonely?
Mystified and blue?
Realizing only your number's up
You're through
Done my share of winning
Now's my turn to lose
After a fair beginning
The game's up I'm through
Think I'll walk out in the storm
There's no love to keep me warm inside
And hope it's fine at the end of the line
Now is the time to take a dive
Try a magic carpet ride
Everything is wrong
You've gone
If you ever miss me
If I should cross your mind
You know where to find me
I'll be waiting at the end of the line

oh wow...  I forgot about that.  True!  I have at least four Concrete Blonde Cd's.  Geeeze I never play my CD collection since RP is always taking care of the soundwaves.  (and teaching me new facts... I didn't know this was a RoxyMusic song.  And I have a best of Bryan Ferry CD.  Again... collecting dust.   ...  LONG LIVE RP!  :)
 
Johnette has said she's a huge Brian Ferry/Roxy Music fan. CB even did a song called "Roxy" about them.

you found me. njoyment goes to 11
Looking forward to seeing Bryan Ferry in Oakland at the end of this month (on my birthday!)
This effort and Country Life are faves for me.
Only rating 7 to me

great record. To me , the hidden gem on this one is  "Nightengale".

I agree, but the direction he then pursued led to Avalon — one of my desert island selections.  That made it all worthwhile.  
Love. {#Music} Concrete Blonde does an excellent cover of this one.
Surprised that the average on this song is as low as it is...... This is the song I think of when I think of Siren. Ethereal, I think.

Cool tune.  I prefer this era of Roxy Music to the comparatively "easy-listening" stuff they put out in the 1980s.

 
I couldn't agree more if I tried. That being said...the "easy listening" phase is still better than most of today.
What is it about Ferry's harmonizing that makes it among the most distinctive and best ever?
End of the Line—Try a magic carpet ride.

I remember seeing Roxy Music on the tour for the Avalon album. That was one great band.

Eric relates a funny story about those three in Clapton.
There are few things in this world as beautiful as BF's voice, and it's displayed here in all its glory.

Wow! I had no idea this was Roxy Music from the other room during the folksy breakdown at the bridge...holy crap!
 
 
Love it.

More obscure cut holds up well after nearly 30 years!  The power of RP to bring back to life those fogotten!



 

How about "nearly 40!!!"
Makes me think how many other classic gems are still not in rotation on RP....much still to come (I hope!)
 Yes, I agree.  JohnnySockhead wrote:

Check out the complete Roxy Music studio recordings collection available on amazon. I picked it up as a Christmas present and am pretty pleased with it thus far.  Price is very reasonable but there are no liner notes...read the reviews before purchase...

Amen to that.  Siren is their best release.

One of my all-time favorite songs and albums. Thanks for playing!
