Both Ends Burning

Album: Siren (1975)
Charted: 25
  • This was the second single taken from British rock band Roxy Music's fifth studio album, Siren.
  • Singer Bryan Ferry recalled to The Mail on Sunday June 28, 2009: "We were on a punishing world tour schedule in 1975 and there were a lot of late nights to get the Siren album finished on time. I guess this was the inspiration behind this song."

  • Jim from Long Beach, CaGreat song. Very ahead of its time. That is why Roxy Music is great!!!
  • Zabadak from London, EnglandThis entered the British singles chart before its predecessor, Love Is The Drug, had exited. A rare thing for the UK in those days.
