Oh baby this is nowhere
Wish I was somewhere - over you
Your sweet lips tell me there's no chance
No more romance - over you
Oh baby how can I go on?
Crying so long - over you
Where strangers look for new love
I'm so lost in love - over you
Some day yes it might come babe
When I'll be babe - over you
And always up to that moment
I will try to say I'm - over you

this sounds like it's been sped up a little bit.
This was originally on "Flesh and Blood", which was a stormer of an album.

Without Roxy Music there'd be no Good Times, Like a Virgin, Let's Dance, Notorius, Get Lucky, and much more.  Okay, maybe an exaggeration, but if you know the lineage of these songs you'll get what I'm saying.

RM's tunes are enjoyable cruise-music (when there's no one else in the car you can peak the volume : )

Avalon has been my favorite also.

Took my girlfriend to the Roxy Music concert. Our first date.  They did not play the song!  But we've been together for 28 years ever since.

"Overlooked"? Not in the UK, they weren't. During the 80s, you couldn't escape bands like RM, Spandau Ballet, Human League and other Yuprock groups. They expressed the Thatcherite zeitgeist of the winners of those years, whereas the alternative scene (Smiths, Cure, Clash etc) expressed the feelings of the losers (the vast majority of the population). Ferry to my mind is forever associated with stripey-shirted Yuppies growing fat on the selling-off of public assets at a knock-down price. I know that RM existed prior to that time and was, I'm told, innovative, but Ferry really came to prominence in the Yuppie years and got wall-to-wall airplay.

I love how you apply the UK political context to your commentary.  Always a fascinating read. No doubt my political views certainly influence my attitudes about certain performers - in general, performers with an active progressive bent (like the Clash, Springsteen and Pearl Jam) will get extra points in my book. But from New York I never got that sense you describe of these guys and the glam pop -influenced 80s bands you mentioned being emblematic of the Thatcherite crowd.  I just dug the music.  

Curious - what is your view through the socio-political lens of my two favorite UK solo artists, Bowie and Costello? 

Roxy Music is pure heaven, no matter what and when.

Another band whose absence makes a mockery of the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame. In fact, I don't think they've ever been nominated. You're telling me that this band (not to mention former member Brian Eno) wasn't massively influential as well as popular? Again, I hear it's feud between Ferry and Jann Wenner. Yeah, that's the way to determine music greatness.

 
Roxy does Fleetwood Mac...! Love this.

hmm...as a Yank, I'd gotten the impression that Roxy's stuff in the 70s and even up to Avalon had been a huge influence on the younger bands coming out of Britain (Depeche, Duran , Spandau) and that Ferry's yuppie appeal was a byproduct of Avalon's bedroom reputation post 1983. Am I that off, Fred?

This song rips at my heart....love lost so many years.....love Roxy..

Flesh and blood, which this came from, was 'our' album. It was heartbreaking to listen to this after we split up.


"Just call me Jack Kerouac..."





The very best song they ever created!

Sweeeeeet.

I agree.  From teh 60s-geezer perspective, these guys are Latter-Day Rock Saints.  Or maybe I'm just a sucker for a 12-string.  right on the border of Pop and Hard Rock.  Definitely an 8.

Over 3 years of not playing this?!
It got me dancing! 
Play it again & sooner

 

it is not known exactly if  exists a music for the day and another one for the night,  i think not;   is not known exactly if it exists a music for the men and another one for the women, i think not;  but what she consists,  the women seem to appreciate much more it music of band Roxy Music & Brian Ferry ......

"Love is the Drug" is quite the toe-tapper as well.

I prefer their first albums. Although they were often associated with glamrock in that period they had far more to offer than just extravaganza.
I'd like to say that this hasn't aged well, but it actually sucked hard even back in its heyday.
Lennox on the cover :)
No, you're thinking of the new Robert Plant / Alison Kraus CD, Raising Sand Tagish_girl wrote:

Agreed - saw them recently ni the smallest, sweatiest venue you could find - Vicar Street, Dublin - still the man was so cool!!!!

Just tuned in. Lucky me!
Saw Brian Ferry in concert in Dallas in the 90's....it was truly the best concert EVER. What a show......
Always loved RM, probably always will...all of their variations were excellent in different ways. Continue to love what Brian Eno is doing. I've listened to this song hundreds of times over the last 20 years, and still love it.

You tell 'em, MickMan! Yes, buy Country Life, and Avalon for sure. They are both great albums, albeit different styles.

Love, Love, Love Roxy Music! Anything from RM or Bryan Ferry is A-ok in my book!
:boohoo: :dance: :roflol:
Bryan Ferry fronting for the Byrds-what a wonderful pop song this is. Roxy was great in all their variations.
I don't recall Bryan Ferry fronting 38 Special... ;-) Pretty dang good. Certainly poppy.
I used to determine whether or not a guy was "date-worthy" by whether or not he knew who Roxy Music was -- needless to say, my ex husband sang lyrics from the song Sentimental Fool to me once (Siren album) and we were glued together for years lol. MORE ROXY MUSIC PLEASE BILL!! :jump:
Yes, more Roxy, please. Classic... :jump:
Ditto... more Roxy please!
Great band, Roxy Music, let's hear more.
Not the best Roxy, but hey, I'll take what I can get.
Now THIS is a great song! I heard it from the next room and had to come running in to see what it was! :music:
