Sympathy - Marillion

'Sympathy' was written by Mark Ashton, Steve Gould, Dave Kaffinetti and Graham Stansfield, members of the progressive rock band Rare Bird. It became one of the band's best known tracks for its haunting organ-based melody.

Marillion recorded a cover version of 'Sympathy' for their compilation album 'A singles collection'. It was also released as a single, which peaked at number 16 in the UK singles chart in May 1992. The single even charted in the Netherlands, where it reached number 25 in the Dutch Top 40.

My collection: 7" single no. 1673
Found: Melody Maker, Den Haag, June 20, 1992
Cost: 6,5 guilders
Tracks: 'Sympathy' / 'Kayleigh (live)'
