One stage before Report Abuse
Can’t believe this song isn’t on the list! Year of the cat got me into the door to loving al Stewart, one stage before closed the door behind me permanently. Such great production, astounding arrangements, haunting vocals and spine chilling effects. Truly captures the notions of haunting loneliness into infinity.

The best three songs of Als - all from side 2 of the Modern times album. The first 2 are already in this list but how could anyone miss out Modern Times - beautiful, lyrical, sad and nostalgic all rolled into one song.
