Love and Regret

Scottish pop-rock outfit Deacon Blue is best known for their meticulously constructed, somewhat melancholic love ballads, and nowhere is this aesthetic more fully realised than in the 1989 single "Love and Regret". A sympathetic tale of perpetual longing and lost opportunities, "Love and Regret" made a minor dent in the British singles chart back in the day, and remain a constant fan favourite up till today. Check out its atmospheric, windswept video clip.

Sounds a bit like Prefab Sprout on their Jordan The Comeback album and later.
