Scotland's greatest export the legendary that is Gerry Rafferty. The man was much more talented than anyone could ever imagine. I often wonder what delights Gerry could have brought to the world had he still been with us R.I.P Gerry your the man.

Brilliant! Makes me feel so nostalgic too.

I'll probably get lynched but I prefer this to Baker Street.
Lauren Wallace
RIP Gerry! you were a beautiful soul*

this is real music. the idiots today havent got a clue.
lewisner
I genuinely feel for people who do not get the depth of this song.
David Fitzsimons
A true musician, he didnt care about fame. One of Scotlands finest :) He will never be forgotten x
James Robert
What instrument is that? A bass flute? I really like these videos where it's just the musicians playing. No dancing, plots, themes, just good music.
Michael Desormeaux
So many people like Gerry who possess high talents don't get recognized while so many who possess no talent constantly self-promote and get noticed. Genuineness does not always mean you'll reap what you deserve sadly.
Niall McEntee
5 years gone today. This is my favourite track out of so many brilliant songs by an absolute legend of a man RIP
Backyard Gunner
I'm 21. Heard this on VintageTV. Absolutely love it!
Andrew Fowler
still spine tingling.....Pure class..
Paul Goodwin
I think these lyrics best explain the thoughts of an alcoholic in any context.

Sad news today that Raphael Ravenscroft has passed away. Famous for the Baker Street Saxaphone solo. Also appears on this film. 1 of a collection of superb session musicians that have played on many famous music tracks. Rest In Peace.

Greatest song about drinking ever.
Dave Lally
Gerry Rafferty's best.  It is brilliant, a lovely song thats timeless
Philip Fox
Used to listen to this when I was 9 with my father. Didnt appreciate it then, I sure as hell do now. That was 36years ago damn life goes by so fast Xox
MrRobsever
Arguably the best song about addiction and the self-commentary that comes along with it. I wonder if Rafferty felt even then he was slipping into full-on alcoholism. Certainly seems that way.
Ray Lamb
If I was only allowed one disc on my desert island...this would be it .

Guys my Dad was from Hunter hill in Paisley and was a friend of GR throughout school, obviously he followed his career when GR formed Stealers Wheel in Paisley and all his solo career in the states,R I P GR. Every time a GR song would be on the radio (mostly Baker Street) my old boy would say " I went to school with him " it used to drive me mad lol .
bigbravo11
Just heard this on clyde 2, awesome song and gerry's legacy will live on for future generations to enjoy.
Dave Rannard
Love this from start to finish..Wish I had 1 ounce of this mans talent. R.I.P.
dan meme
How have I never heard this? Maybe because they never play it on the radio which is a shame. They play the same stuff over and over. This is excellent!!!
ApollonianKing
You can see how Rafferty is creatively electric with his music, as the other players seem to be invisibly under his command. I believe he was behind the scenes for every single part of the recording, otherwise there is nothing so continuous in a band. Right? I can cut the tension in the studio with a knife. He never gives even a token nod or smile to the men who played this with him. Always completely in control. A great performer. RIP

God Gerry was a musical and lyrical genius... been listening to him since 2013 and boy has his music helped me through so so much. And just fits perfectly when I'm awake at 3:30 am like am now chilling and in deep thought while the rest of the world is asleep, or when i'm traveling down from city to city on the train or bus at night... love it. Thank you Gerry Rafferty! You've made life so much better with your music. Person fav tracks: Night Owl, Family Tree, Shipyard Town, Baker Street, The Ark, Days Gone Down,Whatever's Written In Your Heart, Moonlight And Gold, Winter's Come, City To City, Home And Dry, Right Down The Line, North And South, Kyrie Elieson.
Dave Snakey
One of my all time favourite songs.
Garry Stubbington
I've just re-discovered this, Remember my father playing the L.P when i was a kid, Now im much older means a lot more to me now. Rest in peace good Sir.
Jeannine
YouTube should have a star rating system. This song gets 10 stars.
al capone

Frazz fryz
Quite simply a superb artist with a talent you just do not see these days and haven't for a long time sadly. Rip Gerry.
Javier Rios
Very good song, should've had more air-play.
Faye Dean Downie
Have a great memory with this song !!!!!!!!
Mark Andresen
I never normally go for tracks by hairy blokes in specs... but this is one beautiful song, with words I can fully relate to...
paul rogers

Martin Biddulph
CLASS
Daniel Gurule
When I look up about his music with Stealers Wheel and his solo career, I can hear his unique singing voice singing another song that is meant for me. I enjoy listening to his music, I hope one day when and if I make movies, I include his songs in those films. Thanks Gerry Rafferty. Was he ever inducted in the Rock & Roll Hall of Frame, anyone know?
michael hampton

Martin E Donnelly
R.I.P Gerry, outstanding musician!
david smith
Gerry was one of my fav singers ever,bottom line Gerry sung his songs his way,he never gave in to the man meaning the music industry.RIP Gerry..
Matthew Limbert
Wonderful song
KP
This is such a great track. It's timing is weird, but good. Every time you listen to it, you find more detail. Fab. I prefer the build-up and tempo as Get It Right Next Time but they were his equal best. Baker Street is a classic but a little too hyped.
Harry M
Lovely smooth, laidback voice. Gets me drunk without having a drink. That is the sign of a good voice like Mohammed Rafi!!
Jordan Meier
His smooth as butter voice melts me like butter.
bassmanjoe
And of course their is always idiots making comments about how certain band members look, get real people. It's about the frigging music not what the person looks like!
Liz Gault
Love this song as it reminds me of being in my dads car in the 80's and also a great Scottish Guy..
Connie Clancy
This song just suit me perfect moveing drinking some where to go can't say no words of class Gerry rip mate may God have u sing with angles rip 😢✊👊
Christine Bories
brilliant music love the sound R IP
cosmicdrifter287
owls seem to have always been a bird that sparks the creative imagination. They have been seen as symbols of victory, wisdom, or solitude.
John Rackham
Absolute class tune!
JeansBlue60
Handmade stuff that never gets out of style!
Chris Barker
The best song ever written by the best singer/songwriter ever.
bannork
Irresistible melancholy of the lonely alcoholic- a great tune, with a pumping bass rhythm behind to push her along- 'I'll have another pint please ...'
fiona brown
loved every song from this album....still have it
omybeethoven
We need more of this. Thank you Gerry.
Solan Goose
This and Get It Right Next Time are my 1 and 2 for Gerry. The lyrics for me are very relevant. Sublime.
jchopra
Mind blowing song. My woman doesn't get it but who cares. Quality shouldn't be subjective.
mark gosney
Just a lovely song.

I loved all Gerry Rafferty's songs. It's sad that he left us too soon.
John Obiro
As a Scouser, I loved this Man. He made Boss Music.
matt bastow
love this song
sandwich king sandwichton
This is my favorite song for a reason it was made beautifully and the song had a meaning behind it. It was the first song that made me cry and this song along with many of Rafferty's other songs had actual meaning to me. this song and a lot of Rafferty's other song I fell in love with.
Tim Wilcox
Smooth very smooth love it always have
Dough Boy

I'm a huge fan of Gerry's and I love this song. But had fun watching the video and noticed the way a couple of the musicians were grinning and one even carrying on a conversation in the middle of the recording. You gotta love the seventies. It was all 'look at me mum I'm on the telly!' back then. Quite unprofessional really but so much more fun! Miss those days! :-)
Aberdumbie
OK... My 70's memory has become fuzzy... Is the bass player eerily reminiscent of "Duck" Dunn or did I just abuse too many brain cells back in the 70's?
Ken Leahy
Great song - It flows like a steam taking you through the journey of life.

Cool Sound

Night Owl was his second single and follow up to Baker Street. This charted in May 1979 and peaked at #5, more than a year later after Baker Street:
Matt Taylor
Who didn't like this?
Ian Thomas
If anything, I like this even more than Baker Street. Great singer, great songwriter, sadly missed.
Richard Martin
I love reading comments who only in last 5-6 years discovered Gerry Rafferty. So many great sounds and songs. Not just Baker Street so that ranks up there as one of the best rock songs of all time.
