Throw your arms around me - Hunters & Collectors

by Tyronne Mayadunne • 517,774 views

Slower version (compared to 1986 original) of the famous song by Seymour & co.

The line 'we may never meet again' gets me everytime.  Great song, a classic

True art means different things to different people, to me it's about the final loving of a familiar couple. It reminds me of break-up sex with a true love. Goodbye babe.

@muckfundle I've got a CD on order from Amazon that is "Collected Works" [Import]. I seem to remember one of my brother's bringing it back to Australia from overseas and it had this version. Fingers crossed my memory will have served me correctly, but will certainly let you know.

Because of the fact that the music industry throws shit like Beiber at us and good musicians go unheard of

Amazing song, and by far the better version of the song.

Someone else was being a wank stain and complaining about Justin Bieber and I was basically saying can't we just focus on the good things on Youtube such as this beautiful song. Hope you have a great day too.

@tyronnem This is the version i've had on my iPod for years. It IS from the Collected Works CD and is my favourite version of this beautiful song.

Nope. I learned about the other Mr. Seymour by being a Crowdie.

I still prefer the oringinal version, apparently, when recording it they ahd so many versions of it because they could not get it right, but its hard to go wrong with a great song. Rebekaterry, try this one, though I am touching on rock royalty here and may suffer a few rude words thrown my way, but I think Roxy Musics version of Jealous Guy is better then John Lennons
Report spam or abuse
Mate the original was initially quicker tempo but the band listened to the producer.Having heard H&C live before they took off I've gotta say grab this version video and all it's more in touch with the time.Failing that.Search for Seymour and annoy the fuck outta'him.Lol

Nice to see that in the 2.5 years since I uploaded this video, that it has had over 63,000 views and 100 comments. Good music is universal and transcends all man-made boundaries (though I bet most of the views/comments are from Aussies). I myself are from Canada and used to listen to this song a lot in high school. Anyway Viva to Mark Seymour for adding 1 more song to the vast collection of fantastic memorable songs that exist for our human consumption!

Mark Seymour said this about the lyrics 'I was in a relationship with a woman I was very much in love with and she was the inspiration. I wrote virtually all the lyrics on Human Frailty about my relationship with her [...] Throw Your Arms Around Me was the first song I wrote that wasn't angry' I, like most people, relate to that; having been through some messy breakups. Those personal associations make this song an instant tear jerker.

You do know this song is about a one night stand? Not exactly "pure love". That's what "we may never meet again" actually means.
