Beautiful South, The - Everybody's Talkin' Lyrics

Everybody's talkin' at me.
I can't hear a word they're sayin',
Only the echoes of my mind.

People stoppin' starin'
I can't see their faces,
Only the shadows of their eyes.

I'm goin' where the sun keeps shinin'
Thru the pourin' rain,
Goin' where the weather suits my clothes.

Backin' off the northeast wind and,
Sailin' on a summer breeze,
Trippin' over the ocean like a stone.

Woh Woh Woh

I'm goin' where the sun keeps shinin'
Thru the pourin' rain,
Goin' where the weather suits my clothes.

Backin' off the northeast wind,
Sailin' on a summer breeze,
Trippin' over the ocean like a stone,
Like a stone

Everybody's talkin' at me.

Woh Woh Woh

    who as the origanal singer to this


    The original singer was a guy called Fred Neil who wrote and recorded it in 1966 but the song became a big hit in 1969 for Harry Nilsson after it featured in the movie Midnight Cowboy and won a Grammy.

  35. Will B

    Just a random observation but the kid at 1-43 is wearing a Gladiators t-shirt . Too 90's :)

  36. A. J. R. Wilde

    Bibibo Bobobo

    A. J. R. Wilde weird? Why? Nothing weird about it.

    Ady Watts

    @Bibibo Bobobo

    It's just a bit different :-)

    Michael Gibbs

    Makes sense with the lyrics' themes of getting away from it all, just executed in a rather surreal way.

  37. Adam Gill

    Why the heckin' heck has this not been uploaded to Vevo before...? grrrrrrr¬!

    Stuart Lee

    I've been looking for this version for ages. beautiful song and a beautiful woman.

    Love Jacqui

    Boutros boutros ghali Boutros boutros ghali

    Was the singer in this video, the woman singing. was she a child actress? I thought I saw her in the TV series Londons burning. ..


    No she came to the band late and had no previous showbiz experience
    Paul had met her at a party and remembered her after the other female singer left the band
    She actually worked in a shoe shop prior to joining the band

    Fingers Titan

    @ScotsLyon Did he write a song with her in mind before she joined? I'm sure I heard him talk about their meeting.


    I honestly don't know but I think she's worth a song or two.
    What I do know is Paul goes to Holland to write songs.
    He has wrote over a dozen albums there.
