The Blue Nile – Easter Parade

Another 80’s favourite The Blue Nile were one of a number of Scottish bands to come to prominence around the same time and make lots of good music. They are somewhat mercurial, leaving long periods between releasing records but I have loved everything they have (sporadically) released. They really are an little known gem of a band.

I think this song is achingly beautiful and while it was tough to choose one of their songs in particular this is probably my favourite.
