Searchers, The - When You Walk In The Room Lyrics

I can feel a new expression on my face
I can feel a glowing sensation taking place
I can hear the guitars playing lovely tunes
Every time that you walk in the room

I close my eyes for a second and pretend it's me you want
Meanwhile I try to act so nonchalant
I see a summer's night with a magic moon
Every time that you walk in the room

Maybe it's a dream come true
Walking right alongside of you
Wish I could tell you how much I care
But I only have the nerve to stare

I can feel a something pounding in my brain
Just any time that someone speaks your name
Trumpets sound and I hear thunder boom
Every time that you walk in the room
Every time that you walk in the room

Searchers, The When You Walk In The Room Comments
  1. Chad Waldron

    Can you believe that? Still one of the best musical scores ever written and performed to perfection. Thank you, gentlemen.

  2. Henri Put

    The searchers een groep uit de sixties . Bedank voor de mooie muziek fan henri put belgium

  3. keef71

    Mr. Pender and his 12-string

  4. gdholmfirth

    Makes it easier to play the guitar riff using the 12-string Ricky, doesn't it?

  5. Lord Milton Keynes

    I heard this song being played yesterday at a country store outside event whilst waiting for Santa to arrive. Just had to check this Searchers version out, and found it "live" so no studio tweaking going down here. Bought back many memories of being able the hop between all the pirate radio stations before they were banned. There was one part of this version which bought a tear to my eyes. The camera panned onto the audience, who like me remembered all the words and sang along, but the best bit was when they stopped vocalising and let the audience call out in tune "Walk in the room". Absolute magic.

    So glad that I saw them on their final tour. They gave boundless pleasure to thousands for years. Well done guys.

  8. Rob S

    It's too bad the marketed commodity that was and is the Beatles overshadowed so many other pop/rock groups in the 1960's, which were so much better.

  9. Lee Davies

    Played this at my Dads funeral i know its a happy song but brings a tear to my eyes everytime

  10. Ton Veenbrink

    Great but there.s no 12 string in this song

  11. Z5733942648 Z5733942648

    There's one thing worse than lip synching a studio recording, and that's lip synching a live recording.

  12. ann barry


  13. Benjamin Littlefield

    Is it me, or is this lineup tighter than ever? They were tight in '64!

  14. Martin's Music Channel

  21. Brummie H

    Bloke in the middle is miming.

    Tim Fatchen

    Nup. It's just the video and the soundtrack very slightly out of sync. Drives me mad when I'm trying to put up a live music video on youtube. it's gotta be exactly right!

  22. Carlos Nells

  41. Right Fromleft

    One of my all time favorite songs. That riff on the 12 string is the best.

  42. Elle

  43. Elle

  55. Auro Capitani

    Brasilian .Very good . Beatifull.

  56. Brian Hamilton

    when tony jackson left the group the sound  with him

  57. David Varvill

    Have seen them three times in the last few years and their songs take me straight back to the 60's , FANTASTIC. I used to play guitar in a group then and we all loved playing their songs , not difficult to play but you had to have a couple of good singers for the harmony. May the Searchers play many more gigs and entertain us old fans!

  58. Александр Климанов

    Прямо-как и 45лет назад!

  59. Kate King

    I've always said I was born in the wrong era as I'm only 18 but 60s music is my favourite era for music I never listen to modern music as nothing can beat the 60s

  60. Antoni Mendo

    excelente vídeo, ellos si son músicos en verdad

  61. paul stephenson

    Every time I hear this song the hair stands up on the back of my neck I automatically drift back to the sixty's, hanging around the fairground just loving the great sounds as a 15yr old kid, the hollies .the Who, Small Faces. You just can't buy that history that some of us were so fortunate to be a part of.

  62. jane oughton

    saw these guys a while back they were splendid olso they looked immaculate still very profesional ....long live the 60s xxxx

  63. KT the 90s girl

    I can the guitar play what a lovely tune
    Oh yeah! 60s still live on
    Great one
    Thanks Chris
    All the best,
    Katie x

  64. 54musiclover

    With 2 guys over 70 in the band they are still one of the best. Justin Bever couldn't string their guitars.


    Don't think he could string ANY guitar for that matter.  

    Back then you needed two things to make it: talent and luck.
    Nowadays one thing will suffice: looks.
    Is that progress or what..?

  65. Pete Smith

    Timeless classic song.

    maurice Taylor

    see how long the shite of today's groups last,not like the band's of the 60s.

  66. Lesley Storey

    Cees Stratman

    and without all the screaming

  75. Keith Abbott

    The Golden Years will be covering this song at their next Charity event in 2017.....keep googling for further info..Support the Fight against Cancer!....thankyou ...Keith.

  76. Douglas Spence

    A band who served their time in the sixties and can still deliver - not like today's overnight wonders - who don't have a clue !

    Philip Harrison

    Yes,and no one remember the latest thing aka Chip paper.

  77. PictureMeBesideYou

    Not forgotten by the younger generation. 23 and love them. Also. Not for autistic people. Get stuffed. I suffer ASD.

  78. Kjellén Matsson

    underbart sound för en som växte upp på 50 talet

  79. Frank Robinson

    Tony is it true your brother Frank bought your first guitar?

  80. eyraudpa

  84. Brendan Jewell

  85. oz1902

    The Searchers have proved it - we don't get old, we just get better!


    Just like fine wine...

  86. Dominic Colgan

    Probably the best song they ever did.Love the riff on the Rickenbacker still after all these years.

  87. Kjellén Matsson

    i Love seachers sound

  88. samantha Barkel

    after all these years the sound is amazing , could listen to this all day

  89. Jeff Green

    What a class act, played live you can hear it, feel it, fantastic stuff, sure beats all this latest funk punk lip sinking shit, hands down, quality stuff.

  90. eyraudpa

    I always loved the Searchers, haven't changed 50 years after, they are a major group, unluckily forgotten to-day by the younger people

    Mr Mental

    +eyraudpa No they are not forgotten me and my friends love them as well as THE BEATLES!

    una mckillen

    Yes, the two and more can co-exist.  Us sixties children still love those little love songs.

    Mr Mental

    una mckillen Im born in 73 and discovered the Beatles the day John was murdered as they played Beatles and Johns solo songs around the clock, December the 8 th! Then I looked through my dad and moms albums and discovered the whole treasure with all different groups like the Searchers! I got one Beatles album every Christmas from 1980 and forward in chronological order. Now my kids are discovering them!

    una mckillen

    Oh, how I love your post.  I remember that December the 8th.  My brother and I cried.  You went on to discovering stuff that was my youth and your children too!  My son allowed me "Summer in the City" and that was it.

    Mr Mental

    +una mckillen Yeas this murder was not easy to accept! George Harrisons death was difficult for me as I didnt know how sick he was? I was at our cottage on the Swedish country side and when I heard the radio news about him I was stunned. I left the breakfast table and went for a walk and was close to tears!

  91. Antoinette Zammit

    Thanks for the D,V,D..NICE SONG'S.

  92. patsygall

    Aye they where the good days

  93. rikoski

    Better than the covers!!! So good. So satisfying!!!

    Tuten Vanman

    It is a cover.

  94. Eric Neilson

    This is brilliant after all these years

  95. 54musiclover

    Saw them live last year. Never hit a bum note once. SUPERB!!!!

    una mckillen

    My brother and I three weeks ago.  It was a great concert.  Those old guys know how to give value.  Their days of 20 minute sets where girls scream and throw their knickers are over.  They need to be able to play, sing and be funny and they delivered.

  96. Lars-Gunnar Nyqvist

    one of the best groups in the 60th and their music is still green

  97. Sarah Aduddell

    JackieQuack  Has anybody heard or read that when the Beatles were just getting started that they opened for the Searchers.  The Searchers at that time were the preeminent group in England

  98. Alex Gentle

    What a great sound, great song- I love the 12 string Rickenbacker and the Searchers were great Rick artists

  99. julie jones

    Classic track. Even tho before my time. I now appreciate the significance of this track today.
