Marillion - Kayleigh (1985)

This video is an official clip (by EMI sessions) of a live performance of Kayleigh on BBC Top Of The Pops.

Marillion released five studio albums during the eighties, and Kayleigh featured on their third one, Misplaced Childhood. The song was the band's most successful single release, reaching #2 in the UK and their only single to break into the Billboard Hot 100, although it still only managed to reach #74.

Released on June 17th 1985, Misplaced Childhood was a concept album that topped the UK charts and achieved Platinum, making this the band's most successful album. It features a softer, more progressive rock sound than on previous albums, and quality rock like this is hard to find these days.
Many would argue that this is how Genesis would have sounded if Phil Collins hadn't have destroyed their sound, and for those who wore their cassette out back in the 80s, then you owe it to yourself to buy the remastered CD!

Two more singles were released from the album; Lavender which reached #5 in the UK, making this the band's second most successful single and Heart Of Lothian which peaked at #29.
