Big Louise
Scott Walker Lyrics


She stands all alone
You can hear her hum softly
From her fire escape in the sky
She fills the bags 'neath her eyes
With the moonbeams
And cries 'cause the world's passed her by

Didn't time sounds sweet yesterday?
In a world filled with friends
You lose your way

She's a haunted house
And her windows are broken
And the sad young man's gone away
Her bathrobe's torn
And tears smudge her lipstick
And the neighbors just whisper all day

Didn't time sounds sweet yesterday?
In a world filled with friends
You lose your way

Most haunting and heartbreaking song ever. She's a haunted house and her windows are broken. What a lyric, sheer genius. Sadly missed. No one comes close today.

Even within the majestic catalogue of Mr Walker,this haunting masterpiece stands out. RIP Scott Walker.
An irreplacable voice has fallen silent.

An immense work of art that will last a long, long time.

Space Cat

His best vocal performance, in my opinion. Bowie may have had a more versatile voice and range, but they both possessed
the best baritone voices in popular music, as well as some of the best vibratos I've ever heard.
And now they're both gone. :(

Rachel Aroda

Heard of Jan Linton? Vibrato voice in this vein

This song is everything.
Rest in peace, Sir.

Simply the most beautiful male voice of the era.

None do or can compare.

Yep. But from the era though in a different style, Steve Marriot of Small Faces had an amazing voice.
