About Bring on the Dancing Horses

"Bring On the Dancing Horses" is a single by Echo & the Bunnymen which was released on 14 November 1985. It was the only single from their 1985 compilation album Songs to Learn & Sing, and was recorded for the John Hughes film Pretty in Pink. It reached number 21 on the UK Singles Chart and number 15 on the Irish Singles Chart. Allmusic journalist Stewart Mason said that the layers of synths on the song and Ian McCulloch's overdubbed vocals on the chorus add to the "psychedelic haze of the track". Mason wrote: "Bring On the Dancing Horses has a dreamily catchy chorus and a nice melody."

Jimmy brown
Made of stone
Charlie clown
No way home
Bringing on the dancing horses
Headless and all alone

Shiver and say the words
Of every lie you've heard

[Chorus]
First I'm gonna make it
Then I'm gonna break it
Till it falls apart
Hating all the faking
And shaking while I'm breaking
Your brittle heart

Billy stands
All alone
Sinking sand
Skin and bone
Bring on the dancing horses
Wherever they may roam

Shiver and say the words
Of every lie you've heard

[Chorus]

Brittle heart
Brittle heart
And my little heart
Goes

Jimmy brown
Made of stone
Charlie clown
No way home

[Chorus]

Bring on the new messiah
Wherever he may roam

Brittle heart
Brittle heart
And our little hearts
Go
