Although I like all of their stuff. my favorite is "Nights In White Satin" and "Late Lament" that follows.
Nights in white satin,
Never reaching the end,
Letters Ive written,
Never meaning to send.
Id always missed
With these eyes before,
What mattered to me was the right to be free
Like I'll be someday
I'm waiting for my heart to lead the way
The places I've seen and the roads in between
Make me wonder why
I'm searching for my dreams up in the sky
I heard the call
The Moody Blues helped me get over a Semi accident 37 years ago. I was burned 45% was supposed to die but Did Not then they said.
You will never drive truck, let alone work again......................but I was back to work 13 months later driving. They were still working on me...
I need you like you need me
Truly and completely, never be apart
I think that you should tell me
Come right out and tell me
Just what's in your heart
And if you think that it's alright
Let's make a deal and work it out
We'll walk into the sunset you and I
Once upon a time
Once when you were mine
I remember skies
Reflecting in your eyes
I wonder where you are
I wonder if you think about me
Once upon a time
In your wildest dreams
Once the world was new
Our bodies felt the morning dew
"Nights in White Satin" with the poem at the end. It is off of their "Days of Future Passed" album. On the original version the poem afterwards is called "Late Lament," by Graham Edge. Even though the two are separate, they belong together. When the Moody Blues play live they...
The Moody Blues was one of the great bands of the 60's and 70's. Nights in White Satin continues to be one of my favorite songs. I have never seen them in concert but I bet they were awesome! I can't think of one bad song they did. I love to listen to them driving down the...
Why do we never get an answer
When we're knocking at the door
With a thousand million questions
About hate and death and war
It's where we stop and look around us
There is nothing that we need
In a world of persecution
That is burning in it's...
I go back to the very early days was their booking agent for a couple of years when Colin Berlin managed them Did many uni etc and their first tour of USA when I was on the tour. Known nd loved them all for 40 plus years
It was sad that Tony Clarke the sixth moody...
The atmosphere on the streets tonight
Is the driving beat of the world
The word down here on the streets tonight
Is the truest music, you've heard
So take your share of the gifts that are there
They all belong to you
And come what may at the...
The Moody Blues have always been one of my favorite bands. They were my first real concert back in 1982 so I've always had a soft spot for them ever since then. I actually saw them in concert every time they came in concert where I live from 1982 until 1994. They were always...
to one of their older albums, To my children's children's children.
I love that one. I love that song Watching and Waiting.
For the benefit of those who don't know the words, and for my own pleasure just to sing it in my mind as I write it, I will write down...
I've just spent my last 3 hours putting the 2nd. to 7th. moody blues albums onto a flash drive, listening to their music whilst cooking a curry, reading the newspaper, sipping a beer, surfing(the net) then realised that at no point did I want to skip a track, kick the stereo or...
I'm just a wandering on the face of this Earth
Meeting so many people who are tryin' to be free
And while I'm traveling I hear so many words
Language barriers broken, now we've found the key
And if you want the wind of...
I'm incredibly astonished as to why I feel so much passion when I hear that song play...it just takes me into a whole sexual journey in my mind. I'm a child born in the early sixties and I'm sure this song came out when I was quite young, so the connection to it now doesn't make...
I've been thinking about our fortune,
And I've decided that we're really not to blame.
For the love that's deep inside us now,
Is still the same.
And the sound we make together,
Is the music to the story in your eyes.
Just like the driftwood of a dream
Left on the seashore of sleep
Just like the words that wouldn't rhyme
Lost in the desert of time
Time waits for no one at all
No, not even you
You thought you'd seen it all before
You really thought you knew
I don't remember...
I know you're out there somewhere
I know I'll find you somehow
And somehow I'll return again to you
The mist is lifting slowly
I can see the way ahead
And I've left behind the empty streets
Won't you take me back to school?
I need to learn the golden rule
Won't you lay it on the line?
I need to hear it just one more time
Oh, won't you tell me again?
Oh, can you feel it?
Oh, won't you tell me again, tonight?
Each and every heart it seems
