I could show you in a word
If I wanted to
A window on a world
With a lovely view
From close up inside a single room
With an open book aside
Like you read in school
It's so easy, believe me
When you need fun
I do anything to turn you on
Anything to turn you on
It's raining in New York
On Fifth Avenue
And off Broadway after dark
Love the lights don't you
I could walk you through the park
If you're feeling blue
Or whatever
Spring Summer whenever
Winter through Fall
I'd do anything to turn you on
Anything to turn you on
I could leave you as you were
If I wanted to
Then I wonder is it fair
Now you're on your own
Who cares about you
Except me, God help me
When things go wrong
I do anything to turn you
Must phone me, you know me
When things go wrong
I do anything to turn you on

..looks like he's having a stroke when he sings...like Jeff Bridges in "Thunderbolt and Lightfoot" after a kicking by George Kennedy.
DVD RECOMMENDATION:    Roxy Music Live At the Apollo

Extremely well-produced!      (And terrific eye candy!!!!)

And I love the way Bryan falls apart at the end - God Help me when things go wrong! Yeh I been there, but things are better now.
wtf?

Bill, I do not share your love of Roxy Music.
This album came out when I was in university, which is damned lucky timing...
Yes!

Orgasmic rock at its very best.

indeed...and as a complete work of music, it is one of my absolute all time favourites.


Totally stupendous album.
Utter schmaltzy crap.
Ok, so he would leave you if ... if   ... if ... come on man , make up your mind!  Geeze Louise, let's have some commitment to your commitments, eh?


This is really well thought out and executed.
A joy to hear.

I have to agree with the consensus...pretty boring

Couldn't agree more. Bleh! Weak. Almost smarmy. No, it is smarmy.

Yes, you pegged it.
You know, if you combined this with ELP's "Still, You Turn Me On" . . . you'd have two sappy toss-offs from otherwise great bands.
Wow ... from 2004 to 2007 without a play? How could THAT happen? :) Great song; exceptional album.
Wow, this is pretty pansy.
Played this album over and over at my wedding reception/weekend after a sunset ceremony on the Galveston shore. Thank you, Bill...and Tom.....
Great Roxy Music
Still one of my favorite disks...I refer to it often...

What he said.

I was introduced to this album by my older brother back when it came out- We were in his Porche 914 (Porche's crappiest model) I remember him saying, as he put in the tape, "You've got to heare this, there's not a bad tune on it." He was right.
Thanks for playing this. One of the first CDs I bought when the new medium came out. Great music and vocals.

This entire album always reminds me of the dorm room of my first girlfriend in college. Had to force myself to listen to it after I kept finding her in my friend's dorm room. "I'm not going to let her ruin this album for me" I said each time I put it in the tape deck. So this album for me has gone from being: little known, to romantic, to painfull, to carthatic and is now just a great album.
Holy crap, 3 songs from 3 of my DIDs in the space of 1/2 hour. LOVE this record!!!
Great vocal, great bass, great lead guitar. Basically great. Really great. The drums are great too. It's great.
Great classic Roxy tune from a classic album! Why hasn't it been played yet till now? Can play more often!
may be my favorite track on this disc - excellent
