Don't run away
Midnight hideaway
Don't you fade away
'Til the morning light

Don't run away
Midnight hideaway
Don't you fade away
'Til the morning light

I see you from my window
In the shadows of the night
You're standing on Love Street
On the beat of better things

I'll see you standing there
You don't care anymore
And love in your life
Stabbing knife in my heart

Don't run away
Midnight hideaway
Don't you fade away
'Til the morning light

Don't run away
Midnight hideaway
Don't you fade away
'Til the morning light

I'll see you standing there
You don't care anymore
And love in your life
Stabbing knife in my heart

Don't run away
Midnight hideaway
Don't you fade away
'Til the morning light

She might fade away
She might fade away
She might fade away
She might fade away
She might fade away
She might fade away
She might fade away
She might fade away

There aren't enough dancing banana emojis in the world to show my appreciation for this gem.
Oooh I love this song.  
Bless Bill! I was already on cold turkey for 24 hours, finally it's back again.
please stop playing this song
I've just seen your new player for the first time.  I like it.  Lots of info.  Sounds good.  Does  it stream FLAC by default?
There are other/better BoDeans songs ):
Stop p!aging this song every day

as many as you can't stand apparently...
Saw the BoDeans at the Sandpoint Music Festival 2008 and their live music was great. There is more than Fadeaway.

LOL! "We found love in a hopeless place, we found love in a hopeless place, we found love in a hope....."
It's still on my iPod, tho.
The same thing over and over and over again. 3 minutes too long.
I am of an age where I prefer  Love & Hope & Sex & Dreams to Sex, drugs, rock and roll. Of course, it wasn't always that way.
Oh wait, I had to come back and say, the rock and roll should be in there too.
How many times a day does this play?
Great driving rhythm and pace, great harmonies and arrangement. Not my fave but definitely a classic. 
Still stands up in 2016
Don't you fade away.
This song was used in a Playboy video of Donna Edmondson, great visuals along with this song.
What a great relief after struggling through Dave Matthews.  Rock on BoDeans!!
Blèh, boooooooooringggg! Endless whining {#Frustrated}
RP Theme tune!    I like it.   it's part of the family, like Eastenders or The Archers... or worse, Corrie!  7
Ugh, could this song be more repetitive? I think it was what the PSD button was invented for!
..... think that this was the first thing I ever heard on RP....... still great.
Big BoDeans fan hear, but have to concur with some of the other recent posters, lots more better stuff by them.
First three notes, know this song.  Immediately hit 10.  Never a doubt or second thought on this one.  Anyone wanna get up and dance?{#Bananapiano}{#Bananajam}{#Music}
I really love this song, but honestly, it seems like we hear it everyday.
 
Bleah. Hate this song.
Plenty of other great stuff by the BoDeans though.
Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz..
Not sure why, but I've never cared for the BoDeans's sound.  Still, I felt kinda bad for them when they opened for Bob Dylan and Paul Simon way back in 2000.  Seemed like no one except a committed handful of fans were paying them any attention.
Soooo great, loving it! {#Bananajam}
AAAAAAARRRRGH! Not again...

That is about once every 10 days too much. lol  I think this song may even have torture potential.

Love these guys — from this time period. Saw them (him?) performing live recently in Berkeley CA — and was very disappointed. They have changed their sound, practically blew us out of the place with their volume — not the same BoDeans anymore, sadly. That said, I still like all their old stuff.

Yes I agree, a bit overplayed.  There must be other little gems on this album.  Bill is usually good a finding them...

She might fade away. Then again, she might not.

Like this, love "Angels" from the same album.

I say that about Pink Floyd, Radiohead, Tori Amos and Neko Case but I don't complain about it except this once...... It's their station.

(original link broken)
a great road-tested bar band. big fun.
I like this, but it gets played WAY too much...
Every time I hear the first few clucking notes of the intro i think "Oh man, not this again! Didn't they just play it yesterday, and the day before?" 30 seconds later I'm drumming on the desk and bobbing my head. Thanks for keeping this forgotten classic a little less forgotten.FYI, they do have some other great songs. "Say about love" is responsible for my only speeding ticket, for example.

The 'Joe Dirt Cart' Album is excellent and considering its a Live recording I cannot fault it anywhere on any track. Highly recommended to all RP listeners. A very proffesional bunch of lads.

This tune is getting a bit long it the tooth for me.

Saw these guys again after many years last summer, they were still fun!
I thought they were saying "I Wanna Be A Dog"


My dog says "Who wouldn't?"

Echo that. More BoDeans please.

 

Ditto that!
Love those BoDeans. Thanks! I can still listen to their CD's all the way through, again and again.

Youth. I remember listening to this on WFNX in Boston growing up
 
Sadly, WFNX is no more as of a few months ago.  I think it's now sports or talk or some other BS.
Another great RP "album": 

Fadeaway (BoDeans)
I Wanna Be Adored (Stone Roses)
Steel and Glass (John Lennon)

We all get old. Some do better with age than others...

Check your math—not played nearly that frequently.  Besides, its a great boring song from a criminally underrated boring and uneventful band.

Yes Cynaera I fully agree with you.. As I have posted to Negative comments recently on one of their tracks.. The 'Joe Dirt Cart' Album is excellent and considering its a Live recording I cannot fault it anywhere on any track. Highly recommended to all RP listeners. A very proffesional bunch of lads.
Just a great, catchy, tune.
A tune the great Everly Brothers might sing, love the harmony.

Got bored of this rendition very quickly.

It's got a very different tempo to me.  "Police and Thieves" was written and originally recorded by Junior Murvin, by the way.

Someone PLEASE upload "Good Work" from "Joe Dirt Car." That yell of "Fire in the Hole!" and the sound of shattering glass is worth the rest of the song. Begging. Please. {#Pray}

This is (one kind of) R&R as I understand it!

Funky, happy, young, simple and danceable with lots of melody.

First saw these guys when they opened up for U2 in 88'. 
I liked their sound then.  Still like it now!


Thanks for playing this today Bill, shitty day!
i agree. this is not (very) bad - just boring :-(
Something I wouldn't mind this over rated band doing......Fadeway. They are not bad, they are not good, they are just booooorrrrrinnnnggg.{#Sleep}
RP used to play a better live version of this. Why changing to this recording which is so heavily played ?

IMO, this isn't one of their better songs. "Naked" is stark, poignant, and probably totally boring to people who just want to twirly-dance, but it's a masterpiece. "Paradise" is great, as is "Blood Red."  I've got "Joe Dirt Car" on CD, and there are so many wonderful songs on it that if you put a gun to my head and told me to pick one favorite, I'd have to take the bullet. These guys never fail to deliver, no matter what the lineup. (Jackson Browne had Sammy Ylanas do backup vocals on "Miles Away" about a million years ago...)

I loves me my BoDeans. Please play the less-commercial stuff, too, okay? Thanks. {#Dancingbanana_2}

I say again.....meh.
I first saw these guys in 87 or 88 when they opened up for U2 in Minneapolis for the Joshua Tree tour. 

I went out the next day and bought their current record album.  Only later to replace it with the CD!  Good stuff!!  


Seems like I hear this all the time on RP. Just sayin...
If ya like the Bodeans u might try The Cash Brothers...good band!
I love the NODeans!!!!  :p
Love the BoDeans

Makes me happy-sad - something about those minor chords. Love it! Gotta bounce around to it.

Never really noticed a similarity between these guys and David Gray until this song.
One of the pivotal albums of my college experience.  Hate away - I think it's great.
Some songs I love repetition.  I love Philip Glass, for instance.  But this song?  I hate it's repetition.  
meh.

This is THE best example of a song I prefer to hear as a live version. 


Given the name of the album, I'm truly surprised Bill doesn't follow up with "Shattered"...
pretentious? compared to some of the relentlessly self-important stuff played here, these guys are positively humble
