+BOO BIRD lotta good vibes with these fellas, for you sweetie Boo💞💌⛵
Holding back the years..... I wasted all my tears, wasted all those years, nothing had the chance to be good... what a reality to face...
I categorize this song under blues-pop. Simple tune packed with genuine emotion.

Love Simply Red....I'll post my fav song of theirs....thanks
I love you so much its hard to hold back tears and all i want to do is hold back the years
Sou fã do  Symply Red
when I heard this song for the first time I was sure the singer was a black woman...couldn't be more opposite...a red haired whiter than white man......was he ever blessed...what an incredible voice----unsurpassed--in my opinion by man or woman for expression----wow.....

Simply Red - Holding Back The Years O líder da banda, Mick Hucknall, escreveu a canção quando tinha dezessete anos e vivia em casa do seu pai. O refrão não lhe ocorreu até vários anos depois. A sua mãe abandonou a família quando ele tinha apenas três anos; os sentimentos causados por este evento inspiraram-no para escrever a música. Simply Red - Holding Back The Years
Such a beautiful, simple song. In words and in the tune. Even without the words, it would still work wonderfully. I loved it when it first came out and I love it now.

What's amazing to me is that even though I loved the song when it first came out I perceived what he was saying differently. I now believe my perception of the lyrics are better sorted. I didn't really understand what I was listening to when I was 18 in 1985. I do recall it being someone cryptic and I like it. I liked that the video was a tad deeper than the rest. If you dig his singing check out "You Make Me Feel Brand New" sung live. I'm usually not a "live" video watcher...but he killed it. I think he did it a few years back so it's interesting for a 40something to watch. Peace be with all...

Buona notte e buona settimana   G+   e   non 1985
Carino perché aveva quei capelli col taglio così particolare, e traspariva il suo modo di essere inglese.....E poi aveva una voce unica e strepitosamente bella: non lo seguivo perché a me piacevano i Talk Talk....ma quando capitava lo ascoltavo molto volentieri!! Ciaooo Fabio....
+Rosetta Farì Anche se diverse sue canzoni sono Cover ,non le ha stravolte ,ma ne ha fatto una versione estremamente melodica. Ciao buona serata :-)))
i love them so much..did ya know, they were Princess Diana's favorite band?

この曲 大好きなんです 癒されるな おやすみなさい 今日で 一区切り です(´・ω・`) 
お疲れ様です。 おやすみなさい。
Don't Quit.."One of my Favorite Poems"..A song for Jesus!! Don't Quit no matter what! When things go wrong, as they sometimes will, When the road you're trudging seems all uphill, When funds are low and the debts are high, And you want to smile but you have to sigh, When care is pressing you down a bit, Rest if you must, but don't you quit. Life is queer with its twists and turns, As every one of us sometimes learns, And many a failure turns about, When he might have won if he'd stuck it out. Don't give up, though the pace seems slow - You may succeed with another blow. Often the goal is nearer than It seems to a faint and faltering man; Often the struggler has given up When he might have captured the victor's cup, And he learned too late, when the night slipped down, How close he was to the golden crown. Success is failure turned inside out - The silver tint of the clouds of doubt, And you never can tell how close you are - It may be near when it seems afar; So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit - It's when things seem worst that you mustn't quit........PSALMS:104........... Author: "Unknown"
I'm a believer!!! I'm your #1 fan!!☺😁

Cette chanson du groupe simply red est vraiment troublante je la qualifie de perle car d une beaute' rare un vrai plaisir a ecouter
Amazing song brings me  back to when I was on the ones and the twos in the 80s great times
Aqui Brasil!!! Simply Red, muito bom!!!
Perfect song to pop into my head as I walked home. I was having a moment gratitude...
Heard this for the first time when the submarine I was serving in pulled into Hawaii.  Nothing better that driving the island in a rented convertible with this song blasting.  I originally thought the lead singer was a woman...yeah sorry Mick. Got back to the mainland and my wife had bought the album...played it 'til the grooves wore out!!!
wow, this is a great quality upload, superb sounding
I just don't think you could make the song any better. Lyrics Music Performance Production. Thanks!
Such young, has a cool hairstyle. I want such hairstyle.

Happy b'day, +John Costanzo !!! Malachi (my talented kid) heard this song exactly once before he ran to FL studio to reinvent it.  He now owes Red some dollars, but boy, did this classic inspire him!
Thank You +jd quinitchette​ . That's awesome!!!!
