Look away - Big Country

'Look away' was the first single from Big Country's third studio album 'The seer'. Released in April 1986, it was the fourth UK top 10 hit for the band, peaking at number 7. The single was an even bigger success in Ireland, topping the charts for one week, and becoming the band's only number one hit.

I didn't like the song much when it was released, but now, two decades on, I think it's a great rock track. These days a lot of Eighties music sounds a lot better than it did back then. Must be because a lot of music from today is so crap.

My collection: 7" single no. 4108
Found: Empire Records, Den Haag, October 17, 2009
Cost: 0,5 euro
Tracks: 'Look away' / 'Restless natives'
