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

Yeah, I saw them in a little club in Bath, Maine, a few years ago. They're a great, well travelled bar band, and this is one of their best. A nice groove.
I love this song. 
Great to hear this again.
How entertaining song "godlike"... we are retired more than twice, and still stabbers around! unbelievable...

FFFFFNNNGGG GREAT!  Can I sleep with it in my head?
Sorry.  Afraid I'm unimpressed with this one.  Sounds like the same thirty seconds over and over and over and over and... you get the idea.

She might fade away. Then again, she might not.
Perhaps one reason these two flow so well is the sharing key of C?

First heard about and had the pleasure  see this band in sacramento. This track totally captures the magic and magnatism of that concert!

Perfect soundtrack for me today!
Going to see X with Dwight Yoakam tonight at The Palladium.

So it's not Shakespeare. But do you really want to listen to sonnets in a dusty road house on a Saturday night?

it does seem like it, Bill must be getting a lot of calls for it on the request line
I was just thinking the same thing...
Why every day?
The BoDeans were there in my twenty-something years. In between drunkeness and sobriety. I remember the BoDeans and that girl...
{#Dance}A toe tapper to be sure. 
7:37 am - Buddy Holly, "Not Fade Away"
7:39 am - BoDeans, "Fadeaway"

I see what you did there.
Second that. Just kept repeating the first segment over and over.

Oddly enough, I think the studio version has more oomph! {#Cheers}

Beautiful intro, too, to an unmistakable song.  I love their guitar work.

I've tired of it pretty quickly, though.
Beautiful riff.

How do I not know the BoDeans?  Gotta look them up!

LoveLoveLove Bodeans! Never gets old :)


This whole collection oozes with Kurt Neumann's chiming guitar, the intro to this song a prime example. I saw BoDeans this summer. Sammy Llanas had long left the band, substituted for with a workman like but hardly equal sideman. What was also missing was Neumann's ringing, chiming guitar and all the electric subtlety it summoned. "Fadeaway" had been transformed from a haunting dirge into an anthem of sorts. It was okay, but left only a shadow of this once remarkable band.
So upload some of your favourites for us.
is this the only one you play by them? sheesh...
Loved these guys live. Tested roads warriors. 
Far too long, and far too often {#Hand}

  Uhm, for me this is not so remarkable. 6 or 7, perhaps. Kinda maudlin.

Song was at a 7 for me...quickly slipping with each time it's played.  Too much airtime, Bill!

This version is very good. Maybe better than studio, but that's only bacause of my penchant for live music. Imagine being there, that's all I'm saying...

  I'm afraid I must vehemently disagree with you stingray .How in Gods name can you say that this version is lame. This Live Album I have listened to intently in my car and I cannot find one error on all the tracks on this double album, I was quite suprised as surely there must be something there, but no and in my opinion far out shines the studio version. Proffesssionalism from start to finish and obviously well rehearsed.

My observation as well... just dug the Album out to play as I drive around today.. I can give it some ''welly'' volume in the the Bimmer.. :-)
..quite amazing, esp given it's live..
I've had nights where I lay awake with insomnia - literally can't get to sleep - and this song will drift in and out of my head with a Cheshire Cat-like persistence. Other times I've been sick with some ailment and in my feverish half-sleep this song will drown out all other sounds or thoughts. If I had a time machine, and believe me this is in no way hyperbolic, if I had a time machine the first thing I'd do is go back in time and find a way to keep the BoDeans from ever forming as a band.

But you're thinking, "Wouldn't you go back in time and stop Hitler or Pol Pot or someone like that?" No I wouldn't, because I'd have a time machine silly. I could go back in time AFTER stopping the BoDeans from forming.

That's right, I've thought this through.
Love the BoDeans.
Good tune

Yes I'm sure it would be far better if the harmonies didn't harmonize.

This song is good the first time you hear it or for the first few seconds...
after that it gets redundant very fast.
{#Fever} 
awful song. please FADE AWAY! the sooner the better !!!
I was excited about seeing these guys next month (for the 3rd time) but then I read they broke up and there is only one remaining original member (Kurt Neumann).

"On August 18th, Llanas officially left the band due to "differences of opinion" that had been "going on for years", according to Neumann. His departure was also related to his rekindled solo career, with a new solo album titled 4 A.M. having been announced one day after Indigo Dreams was released. The band stated that they will continue on without him with the addition of new member Jake Owen."

Too bad........they had a good run!

throw in some terms from classic hits: 'little runaway' and 'fade away'
so one thinks it's familiar, and voila...

At the beginning, I love that one person trying to start the "clap-along" but it completely dies out after no one else joins in! That's about the only enjoyable bit I get out of this song, sorry to say.


Did anybody see their show at Miller Park last Sat. as part of the Farm Aid benefit?  I'm curious as to how that went over, as it looked like they didn't have that familiar crowd love they normally get from the 'XRT faithful around here.

OH, if I were you, I'd get "Joe Dirt Car," a double live CD. It captures the very best of these guys - the humor, the mistakes, the throat-clearing, the silly asides, the profanity... There's an achingly beautiful rendition of "You Don't Get Much" that just makes me cry everytime I listen to it. Once you listen to "Joe Dirt Car," you can pretty much pick up anything of theirs and hear studio versions of favorite songs. I can't remember which CD it is, but a rollicking, riotous fun song on it is "Good Work," complete with a yell of "Fire in the hole!" and an explosion that breaks glass. Great stuff. Enjoy! Meanwhile, I like this song, but they have much better ones that showcase their voices. I remember listening to Mark and Brian at work one day, and they asked one of their sound technicians (or somebody - it's been a LONG time!) what his favorite romantic song was, and he cited "Naked," by BoDeans. I actually applauded in glee! Co-workers called the guys in the rubber truck, but I eluded them by taking the broken elevator down to the basement parking lot (the "OUT OF ORDER" sign was put there by an IP tech I know, so he could have unimpeded access to the whole building) where I climbed up the embankment, blended in with a group of lunchtimers, and made a clean getaway.
