Graham Gouldman, who wrote the Hollies hit "Bus Stop
," wrote "Look Through Any Window" with Charles Silverman, about whom little is known. In a Songfacts interview with Gouldman
, he told the story behind the song:
"Yes, I was on a train coming back from London up from Manchester where I used to live, with a friend of mine, and he was looking out the window. He said, 'Look through any window,' because we were looking as the train crept out of the station and started going through the suburbs quite slowly. We were trying to look into the houses to see what was going on."
