Beedle the Bard, I don't know where you got your information, but the girl he's talking about was a friend who committed suicide. Flying Machine was the name of his first band. The more you know........ . . .

I remember the first time I heard this song. Getting ready for school in the morning and they played it on the radio... I fell in love with it immediately. I had my pen and pad by the radio to write down the songs I wanted to try to buy. I bought the album, vinyl... sure wish I still had my records....

So this song is about James' girlfriend. He was touring, and his birthday was coming up. His band decided to fly his girlfriend up to where they were. Her plane crashed. Hence, "Susanne, the plans they made put an en to you" and "sweet dreams an flying machines and pieces on the ground". The more you know!

Absolutely devastating song if you know the story
How many people do you want to reach out to? If that number is as low as one, DO IT, never know whose life you might save.
Been there one night, friend of my moms called out of the blue one night, crying and b**ching, and all I did was not hang up and listened for two hrs, and then we hung up as friends.
Later I found out he had a pistol in his hand and had I been harsh, HE told me, "Id a blown my head off", the lesson my friends is...you never

When you've lived long enough ones been burned by fire and soaked by rain.... on the other hand, when you've lived long enough, ones also felt the warmth of sun upon the shoulder and love in the heart.. Good times, bad times, that's life folks!

When I first heard this song I was in HS, those years seem just like the other day . Hearing it reminds so much of the my HS days the good with the bad . Know when I hear it reminds me of my HS boyfriend , (he also was my best-friend) that passed away a few years ago.i do think of you more then you think I would .gone but not forgotten.

I've always loved this song! Never paid much attention to the lyrics til lately, though. Even so, seems all-the-more relevant now than before!!!

Awesome tune! JT is the best! Also, make an ELO and Jeff Lynne station and get him in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame!!!

I recall this song played wall to wall in my youth. But after I was saved, I wondered like a comment below, did his desperation call to Jesus in this song ever lead to anything... I like authentic better than cool, if I have to pick. And I love "Only a Night in Rio" - authentic, AND HAS room to mention Christ, if only a concrete one...

I slso had a nightmarish childhood. Music like James and other singer songwriters helped me survive.

Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest possible Friday by the love of you life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. However if you don't post this you will die in 2 days. Now you've started reading so don't stop. This is so scary put this on at least 5 songs in 143 minutes. When done press f6 and your lover's name will come on the screen in big letters. This is so scary because it actually works
