Simple Minds - King Is White And In The Crowd Lyrics



Talking by the pool of light, language from America.
She puts on the film of him, King is white and in the crowd
They are not a melting pot, say no, say no tapestry
She puts on the film of him, King is white and in the crowd

She takes his hand and she says you'll stay
She's lost in the crowd
King
Wire them up, fire them up
The life and times, the art and talk
Wire them up, fire them up
The life and times, the art and talk

Lovers run camp Africa, Bars in town are civilised
She puts on the film of him, King is white and in the crowd
Panorama, Citylife
Youth's dance proud from the waist down
She puts on the film of him, King is white and in the crowd

Shot from where the action is, a rhapsody in black and blue
She puts on the film of him, King is white and in the crowd
Love lies under western eyes, powerful yet transient
She puts on the film of him, King is white and in the crowd

  1. maxdamiann

    The entire album is a masterpiece...

  2. Al Samuel

    Masterpiece

  3. Thomas SHARONIARD

    A deadly opening attack. Nearly untraceable, ruthless proxies spreading chaos on multiple continents. Costly miscalculations. And thousands — perhaps hundreds of thousands — killed in a conflict that would dwarf the war in Iraq.

    Welcome to the US-Iran war, which has the potential to be one of the worst conflicts in history.


    2019 IS WHITE AND IN THE CROWD

  5. Philippe Cordier

  6. Roberto Migliorini

    Mel Gaynor on drums......................

    Marcia DeVore

    No it's Mike ogletree

  7. 19bootsy68

    Them parasite human cockroache PC do gooders would deem the title of this song nowerdays as blatantly racist.

  8. Γιαννης Χριστοφιλης

  9. Ed Kinakin

    This and Sons and Fascination/Sister Feelings Call are their best

    Mathias Schrö

    Please add Empires And Dance :)

  10. chris barlow

    There aren't many LPs I would describe as majestic, but this one certainly is. From here on in it was s slow painful descent

    Nigel Caine

    Tend to agree with you they did have some high points after this but it was never as good, they were at the top here.

    Mathias Schrö

    Sparkle in the Rain was also pretty good.

    Linus

    Every song on this LP is 8/10

  11. Roberto Sanfilippo

    E guerra sia.

  12. David Hanni Sr

    I can listen to this CD every day. Lol🤯

  13. odile odile

    unforgettable

  14. Shaun Smith

    This reminds me of a 'Liaisons Dangereuses' song.
    'Mystere Dans la Bruillard'?

    CONSIDERABLYMORE1

    Shaun Smith sounds nothing like it. The Simple Minds track that bears closest resemblance to said track is probably Twist/Run/Repulsion, but it is only a passing one.

  15. Shaun foley

    Vinyl and Walkman happy days

  16. Tim

    i like how this song builds up slowly, with the powerful drums at the end and jim kerr's screaming

  17. Marc Vanvaerenbergh

    Fucking eargasm....

  18. Atlantikonrad

    QUESTA E'MUSICA

  19. Jeroen Poldermans

    Lang geleden toch dichtbij.

  20. gremmiehodad

    Always thought this one kind of a Bryan Ferry/Roxy Music sound to it?!

    Philippe Cordier

    I agree !!!

  21. TONE B HURT

    All classic👍

  22. widgeon teal

    A great song; a group at its peak.

    Will Hoey

    absolutely spot on widge !......never bettered unfortunately this album

  23. genki2genki

    Non stop on the Walkman after this one was released.

  24. Gabriela Trinkner

    love it, remembers me on my youth

    Reggie Postlethwaite

    +Gabriela Trinkner and this is terrible, because life is always quartering you year after year

  25. godsoj

    David Hanni Sr
