Big Country - In A Big Country
Official video of Big Country performing their Top-40 hit "In A Big Country" from the 1983 album The Crossing. Crank it up! "In a Big Country" was released in May 1983 as the third single from their debut album The Crossing and peaked at No. 17 on the Billboard Hot 100, while reaching No. 17 on the UK Singles Chart and number 3 in Canada. The album reached #3 in the UK and #4 in Canada where it went platinum. It peaked at #18 in the US on the Billboard 200. The music video for the song received heavy airplay on MTV and later on VH1. It follows the four band members as they track down an unspecified treasure, while constantly being pursued and bested by a woman who appears to be a rival treasure-hunter. Interspersed throughout the video, in between the action, the band is shown in flannel shirts and blazers performing the song onstage. The video has plenty of action and beautiful scenery of the English countryside including Swanage Bay. (My apologies for "tilting" the video - HD video/HQ audio) Big Country were formed in Scotland in 1981 by Stuart Adamson (formerly of Skids, vocals/guitar/keyboards), Bruce Watson (guitar/mandolin/sitar/vocals), Tony Butler (bass guitar/vocals) and Mark Brzezicki (drums/percussion/vocals). The were most known for their ability to make their guitars sound like bagpipes, which is a stand-out feature of the song. They were frequently compared to their UK contemporaries U2, Simple Minds, and The Alarm. In fact Mike Peters of The Alarm joined the band in 2010 to play several concerts. Sadly Stuart Adamson passed away in 2001 from an apparent suicide but leaves behind an inspiring musical legacy. "In A Big Country" - Music and Lyrics by Stuart Adamson, Bruce William Watson, Mark Brzezicki, Tony Butler, Patty Way, Lisa Miriam Silver Ha! I've never seen you look like this without a reason Another promise fallen through, another season passes by you Shock! I never took the smile away from anybody's face And that's a desperate way to look for someone who is still a child In a big country, dreams stay with you Like a lover's voice fires the mountainside Stay alive I thought that pain and truth were things that really mattered But you can't stay here with every single hope you had shattered I'm not expecting to grow flowers in a desert But I can live and breathe and see the sun in wintertime In a big country, dreams stay with you Like a lover's voice fires the mountainside Stay alive In a big country, dreams stay with you Like a lover's voice fires the mountainside Stay alive So take that look out of here, it doesn't fit you Because it's happened doesn't mean you've been discarded Pull up your head off the floor, come up screaming Cry out for everything you ever might have wanted I thought that pain and truth were things that really mattered But you can't stay here with every single hope you had shattered Shout! 1, 2! I'm not expecting to grow flowers in a desert But I can live and breathe and see the sun in wintertime In a big country, dreams stay with you Like a lover's voice fires the mountainside Stay alive In a big country, dreams stay with you Like a lover's voice fires the mountainside Stay alive In a big country, dreams stay with you Like a lover's voice fires the mountainside Stay alive Ha!
