Terrible song. Worst on the record.

Really? I think it's the best song on Tracker and one of my favourite songs Mark's ever written. It has a beautiful melody and very evocative lyrics. The acoustic guitar riff at the beggining still haunts me! :)

At the place where you came in
You've thrown your love to all the strangers
And caution to the wind..."

I agree with Dusty. The only reason it is in the record is because is about his wife... I don't like it at all, sounds boring and repetitive to me. I ALWAYS skip it.

Do you also skip Six Blade Knife on the first DS album ? Because I think it has similar structure...
I love Long Cool Girl, best song on the album for me, the first one to stick in my head. It does not seem to be at first, it is simple and repetitive, but so... peaceful. Just like A Place We Used to Live, but more joyful. Love it !

Six blade knife was original and fresh. Long cool girl is a song 37 years after that is not original at all and repetitive, boring etc FOR ME.

Agree, Six Blade Knife has a really cool vibe, space for the instruments to breathe. Never a skipper. LCG, always a skipper. FOR ME. :)

I agree that the intro is quite nice, that guitar licks, but then when the song starts... specially with that mellow slide... :thumbsdown
