Great song. My favorite on a very underrated album. Live it was fantastic, too. Great lyrics.
What are we going to do now it's all been said.
No new ideas in the house and every book has been read.

Confession time: up until this summer I hadnít ever listened to Hawkmoon 269.

I now know what Iíve been missing out on all these years.

Never all the way through and I have yet to watch the film (but know the main parts of it from a YouTube I follow who did a hilarious review).

Iím one of those weird fans who only recently listened to the earlier 80s albums all the way through for the first time, and who still hasnít listened to a lot of their b-sides. I know, I know.  :'(

it's not that weird.  I think a lot of the older fans listen to the early albums a lot.  I don't think I've listened to Boy or October more than three times all the way through.  Just doesn't do anything for me like the other albums.

Do try "Wide Awake in America" EP as I think you'll like it if you don't already know it.  There were some great b-sides for TJT: Luminous Times and Walk to the Water are thorny, difficult love songs.  Of course you know Spanish Eyes and Sweetest Thing which were other b-sides from that era.

As for Hawkmoon269, I prefer the live version from Lovetown to the R&H version.  Love the slide guitar  :)

Ahh, yeah, I've heard quite a few of TJT b-sides, so I'm familiar with those ones. Just hadn't heard Hawkmoon and I regret that immensely.

Wow, didn't knew this guys! I just only listen albums. Not just one song at the time. The album I have listened the least (No Line, I think) I have heard 20 times. And for every album counts: every time I hear something new.

Rejoice! What a journey can you still make! Let's discover! ;D
