"Holding Back the Years" is the 7th track on Simply Red's debut studio album Picture Book. The song was a huge success for the group and quickly rose to the top of charts across the world. The single is one of two Simply Red songs (the other being their cover of "If You Don't Know Me by Now") to reach number one on the Billboard Hot 100, for the week ending July 12, 1986. It also reached #2 in the UK and was a worldwide hit. It had initially been released in the UK the year before, but only reached #51.

  • Ryan Locke
    Ryan Locke 9 місяців тому Music production and quality has been on a rapid decline. There are many factors that play into this besides ageism. It's a fact and many industry professionals from artists, engineers and producers will confirm. There are many reasons as to why. Foremost the consumer being dumbed down to accept mediocrity. There is a definite and measurable decline in quality of song writing, performance and production. Its a business. The day of artist development are over. So keep stealing music and paying artist fractions of a penny to stream and embrace the suck.

  • Hubert Montamat
    Hubert Montamat 2 роки тому (змінено) That may all be correct about the "older generation" but the truth is...mostly all the so called "music" of the late 90,s to the present is absolute crap. I didn't say all but mostly all. No originality, very little talent and it has no soul. So much is repetitious computer generated noise where there used to be actual people playing an actual instrument. There were actual melodies and actual words that meant something that went along with those melodies. I am not at all interested in listening to someone lamenting about how the Illuminati has taken control over their pathetic life and how they have sold their soul to the Devil. That's why the music now has no soul, because the talent-less so called "Pop Stars" have no soul as well as those soul-less sorcerers of the music industry. Or "The Industry" as it is more commonly known to those in the business. If you can't see that then you are living in a fantasy world and following the pied piper. Just like you are supposed to do. Mindlessly accepting mediocrity and fooling yourself.

  • Chuck P
    Chuck P 2 роки тому Kevin hunt....We all know each generation has said this about the previous era of music, but after the late 90's music definitely changed. All the smooth slow jams in R&b and Classic rock has been removed and replaced by garbage. All the great HIP-HOP that gave you word play, metaphors, punchlines have been replaced by sipping syrup, pushing coke, trap music, ak-47's etc. All the great rock groups like Journey, foreigner, Air supply, etc who produced great love songs, songs that told stories etc have been replaced. Todays rap music and much of the R&b is pure shit, it's nothing more than MUMBLE rap and watered down R&b. Brah I'm a music lover, I am willing to listen to all kinds of music, but I am 50 and I have witnessed the transformation of great artist who can play 6 or 7 instruments to watching an individual just pushing a damn button getting the same effect. Every other word in most of todays music is bitch,fuck,nigga,gun,blast,kill,dope,cocaine, etc. I'm not saying every artist back then were grammy winners, but the quality of music today is no comparison to music from the 60's until about 2002.

Its easier to control Beyoncé,Rhianna,Britney than it was to control Prince (RIP) because an actual artist can think for themselves and will demand proper pay and artist rights.

    Gregory Lewis 3 роки тому Hi Guys, the majority of people today just seem to be rolling with the crowd, as far as this, "So Called", music goes. I'm reasonably sure that the songs that are popular today can't really be dissected into any musical fragment, that actually contains any creative talent....It you listen to the music, it is primarily electronic,(especially drums), with someone trying to sing some assemblage of repetitive lyrics. I've always gone my own way when picking and listening to my music, but then again, I know what to look for in a good, and even great tune.

    mrfrogbutt1 3 роки тому @blueangel0925 It costs a bigger fortune to lose the actual talent that made great music and settle for junk.... 1986 had Picture Book and 2016 has Miley Cyrus
  • blueangel0925
    blueangel0925 3 роки тому The irony is that it costs a fortune to make music today.
  • Gregory Lewis
    Gregory Lewis 3 роки тому Hey Joe, I agree with you 100%. The music today seems to lack purpose, other than what you said, to make money.....Today's music even sounds cheap.
  • Hey_ Joe
    Hey_ Joe 3 роки тому +Sathaporn Potiswad - It was true when your parents said it, and it's true now. Music has not progressed over the years. Styles have changed, but it's big business now. The music of today is generic crap, written solely to make money. Of course there is exceptions, but not many.
  • blueangel0925
    blueangel0925 3 роки тому +mrfrogbutt1 I think so, too.
  • mrfrogbutt1
    mrfrogbutt1 3 роки тому @Lester Ipapo I listen to new acts that exist NOW however, there aren't many! This generation has produced so little since the music biz is going bankrupt. This is ALSO the generation buys MP3 downloads and NOT entire albums, the cheaper the type of music the more the industry dies. This doesn't affect acts like The Beatles but I will demolish any chances that new acts will NEVER make it in biz. Good luck to you, your generation and any self expression you might have since you fund Miley Cyrus instead

  • Gregory Lewis
    Gregory Lewis 3 роки тому I've always been a 70's decade musician and music lover.....The only group I would even lean toward in the 80's, would be Def Leppard, other than them, I would have to revert back to the 70's.

    skippytroll 3 роки тому +mrfrogbutt1 And when it came out, it had/has the sound of older music. Melody, flowing vocals with the instruments, and sweet, melancholy (spelling) lyrics. Put all together, you listened.

    mrfrogbutt1 3 роки тому @Lester Ipapo Then why complain and bitch? Cut your crap and shut up 
  • Lester Ipapo
    Lester Ipapo 3 роки тому dont talk to me about taste man, fyi my favorite band is THE SMITHS, which is one of the most influencial bands that, Oh look!, they came from your precious 80s music. Now if your gonna cloak yourself in your underrated 80s music then condemn everything else. well then your just being stubborn, but there seems to be no getting into your stubborness. the hardest man to crack after all is the man who's convincing himself. by your argument, its seems the only thing to back up your case is just an extreme hate with contemporary music. you're not even trying to put up decent arguments.
  • mrfrogbutt1
    mrfrogbutt1 3 роки тому @Lester Ipapo No, IT MEANS I have standards.I have taste and today's shit is just that, a pile of shit acts and crap parading around as music. Maybe you should develop some taste and standards. Plus, why are you here listening to Simply Red if your new music is so fucking amazing?

    PAULO ARAMYS MARTINS DA COSTA 3 роки тому +mrfrogbutt1 Concordo com você. Aqui no Brasil, nas últimas duas décadas, temos milhares de lixo sendo lançado com nome de música. Me parece que os grandes gênios da músicas estão se extinguindo.

  • Lester Ipapo
    Lester Ipapo 3 роки тому Looking at your channel you probably love 70s to 80s music ranging from glam rock to disco. And that's great. Probably means you're in your 50s too. You probably have this very strong pessimistic about contemporary music right now. But for you see you're no different from the people who once said rock and roll was the music of the devil in the 50s? And you should try the band Savages if you're not to proud. They're influenced by a lot of 70s post punk. How about you prove me wrong about my opinion of you...

  • Lester Ipapo
    Lester Ipapo 3 роки тому The fact the you the only music you know today only consist of "trashy" music today just shows you're very close minded. Yeah today's popular music sucks balls but that's because that's what the medias showing you. I URGE YOU to try today's contemporary music by really talented artists like James Blake or The xx. Maybe it can change your mind. Cheers
