The Whole of the Moon

Another video link.

This The Whole of the Moon from the Waterboys excellent 1985 release This is the Sea. In the video, you'll find Mike Scott singing vocals with keyboard accompaniment by the talented Karl Wallinger, who went on to create World Party.

Scott studied literature and philosophy at the University of Edinburgh, undoubtedly one factor contributing to his thoughtful lyrics. I've seen him in concert a couple times, and both times he put on a great performance. The band's Irish influences show through more clearly in Fisherman's Blues, which was featured on the Good Will Hunting sountrack.
