Day 8: One of the most beautiful Simple Minds songs. 'East At Easter' can hold both theatre and stadium spellbound. Listen out for Charlie in epic classical mode halfway through this version !

Martin Charles Burchill ValentineShows how a great song is a great song - SM have performed this in a number of different ways over the years and all of the versions are wonderful. My particular favourite is the 1991 iteration - one of the most brutally beautiful bits of music I've ever heard!

Matthias HafenNo doubt about Charlie's talent. But above all it's a good example of Michael MacNeil's brilliant work at the keyboards.

Steven MillerGot this on one of the 'Let There Be Love' CD singles. Absolutely epic. Recently been thinking that another b-side from that single, "Good Night", would fit in nicely with the current acoustic setup.
