Snow Patrol singles chronology

"Shut Your Eyes" is a song by the Northern Irish-Scottish band Snow Patrol. Initially a track on their 2006 album Eyes Open, it was released as a single in several countries in 2007.

The various B-sides featured on the single are taken from a Snow Patrol live performance at Columbiahalle, Berlin on 9 February 2007.[5] The live renditions of "Spitting Games", "Run" and "Chocolate" included on the single later appeared on the Australian version of the "Signal Fire" single.[6]

The band's drummer, Jonny Quinn, has declared that "Shut Your Eyes" is his favorite song to play live because of the interaction with the audience when the band perform it.[7]
