I'll probably get lynched but I prefer this to Baker Street.

Brilliant! Makes me feel so nostalgic too.
Lauren Wallace
RIP Gerry! you were a beautiful soul*

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.

this is real music. the idiots today havent got a clue.
David Fitzsimons
A true musician, he didnt care about fame. One of Scotlands finest :) He will never be forgotten x
lewisner
I genuinely feel for people who do not get the depth of this song.
Backyard Gunner
I'm 21. Heard this on VintageTV. Absolutely love it!

Greatest song about drinking ever.
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.

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 .
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.
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
Paul Goodwin
I think these lyrics best explain the thoughts of an alcoholic in any context.
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

Marc Duffie
REAL MUSICIANS🎷REAL TALENT🏆EACH ONE 🎺OF THESE MUSICIANS KNOW MORE🎼 ABOUT MUSICAL🎸 ARRANGEMENTS🎶 THAN A DAM RAP ARTIST
Andrew Fowler
still spine tingling.....Pure class..
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.
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!!!

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.
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
Ray Lamb
If I was only allowed one disc on my desert island...this would be it .
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.
Dave Snakey
One of my all time favourite songs.
Dave Rannard
Love this from start to finish..Wish I had 1 ounce of this mans talent. R.I.P.
bigbravo11
Just heard this on clyde 2, awesome song and gerry's legacy will live on for future generations to enjoy.
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.
Javier Rios
Very good song, should've had more air-play.
Jeannine
YouTube should have a star rating system. This song gets 10 stars.

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.

Love this song as it reminds me of being in my dads car in the 80's and also a great Scottish Guy..
Tank Stoner
This song should've been another hit for Gerry.

fiona brown
loved every song from this album....still have it
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.
Christine Bories
brilliant music love the sound R IP
Martin Biddulph
CLASS
Melissa Nichols
Such a beautiful soul
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..
Harry M
Lovely smooth, laidback voice. Gets me drunk without having a drink. That is the sign of a good voice like Mohammed Rafi!!
JeansBlue60
Handmade stuff that never gets out of style!
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?
Tim Wilcox
Smooth very smooth love it always have
Tony Montana
The melody man...
The Q-Continuum
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:
John Rackham

Matt Taylor

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 ...'
jchopra
Mind blowing song. My woman doesn't get it but who cares. Quality shouldn't be subjective.
Nick Photos
The drummer now plays in Steeleye Span

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.
les collins
love him my hero never be another like him so so good rip gerry i will never never stop playing your music your family can be so proud of you
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.
Solan Goose
This and Get It Right Next Time are my 1 and 2 for Gerry. The lyrics for me are very relevant. Sublime.
Kenneth Rose
Gerry from a time when it didnt matter what you looked like,music mattered,and this guy cut it,RIP Gerry.
Sean Connor

Ken Leahy
Great song - It flows like a steam taking you through the journey of life.

What a song baby 👍
Surreygirl 1978
Scottish musical genius
James Hicks
genuine     solid    humble                 simply encrypted ,
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?
Ian Thomas
If anything, I like this even more than Baker Street. Great singer, great songwriter, sadly missed.
Deano4322
