Living In a Box - Room In Your Heart
[McDoC Evo-XR Mix]

Running Time: 6:17

I treasure the eponymous album of Living In A Box that I bought their follow-up album "Gatecrashing" even if I haven't heard a single song in it. Very much pleased with its entire selection, the track that really struck me was "Room in your Heart". At that time, it was only "Blow the House Down" that has been released as a single. After a few months, a friend of mine borrowed it and unfortunately, lost it somewhere. But he was kind enough to replace it with a new one. Actually, the one he gave me was a repackaged edition which featured the 7" single version of "Room in your Heart" (which was already moving up the UK charts then) instead of the original album version. The single version is far better in my opinion and it became the most popular track from the 2nd LP. Richard Darbyshire's soulful voice is amazingly great along with his guitar playing, as are Marcus Vere on synthesizers and Anthony "Tich" Critchlow on drums. It's just too sad that they broke up before they were able to put out a third album.

This has to be one of the best love songs out there and would be appropriate for the love month of February. So here's my re-edit, wherein I used both the single and album versions.

Here's the song's music video from the band's Official YouTube Channel (Check the site for their music and live videos)
