Simply beautiful.

"Holding Back the Years (Extended Version)" - Simply Red

From their debut album, "Picture Book", which is a killer disc and surely you've listened to it. It hit #1 in 1986. This track, the title cut and "Heaven" (remake of a Talking Heads tune) were also featured on Miami Vice. Singer Mick Hucknall wrote this when he was in his teens and it's been recorded 2 other times in a studio, before and since. The first was with Hucknall's original band called The Frantic Elevators in '82. The third time was again with Simply Red in 2005 as an acoustic version on the LP, "Simplified". The long version runs 5:44.
