Tinseltown in the Rain
The Blue Nile Lyrics


Why did we ever come so far ?
I knew I'd seen it all before
Tall building reach up in vain
Tinseltown is in the rain

I know now love was so exciting
Tinseltown in the rain
Oh men and women
Here we are, caught up in this big rhythm

One day this love will all blow over
Time for leaving the parade
Is there a place in this city
A place to always feel this way

And hey, there's a red car in the fountain
Tinseltown in the rain
Oh men and women
Here we are, caught up in this big rhythm

Do I love you ? Yes I love you
Will we always be happy go lucky ?
Do I love you ? Yes I love you
But it's easy come, and it's easy go

All this talking is only bravado yeah
Oh, Tinseltown
Tinseltown in the rain
Oh men and women

Here we are, caught up in this big rhythm
Tinseltown in the rain
Oh men and women
Here we are, caught up in this big rhythm

Tinseltown is in the rain
Tinseltown is in the rain
Tinseltown is in the rain
Tinseltown is in the rain

Yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah

Do I love you ? Yes I love you
Will we always be happy go lucky ?
Do I love you ? Yes I love you
But it's easy come, and it's easy go

All this talking, talking is only bravado
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Tinseltown is in the rain
Tinseltown is in the rain
Tinseltown is in the rain
Tinseltown is in the rain

Getting tears in my eyes now I hear this after so many years. Melancholy in its most beautiful form.

I bought this EP (imported) in Berkeley, CA. It was 1984, and very few in the states had ever heard of, or by The Blue Nile. as soon as I got my grubby hands on the hot vinyl, i took it too the hifi stereo store were I was employed. Out of the wrapper, and straight on the platter. I dropped the needle on "Tinseltown in the Rain" at first all the employees (Music snobs all) stopped doing nothing, and began listening to that great opening riff as it churned (Plus the recording sounded fucking great. Man, the bottom was just amazing on those Big Boomers). But practiced indifference soon set in about a minute into the track, they began to turn their backs to the speakers (A universal display of rejection in stereo stores everywhere). But something funny was at work, because by the guitar break, i noticed out of the corner of my eyes, that bodies were moving in time. within a flash everyone in the store was dancing too that addictive beat...and digging it. Thanks Paul

For me, one of the standout 'sonic' gems of these times for sure. Sade - No Ordinary Love & Alexander O'Neal - Criticize very close too from purely sonic pleasure.

remember the club, Berkely Square? I was in the Navy and would drive from Mare Island to forget I was in and would go dance there . There used to be all these Dead Heads all over Berkely, hanging out waiting for Jerry to show up!
