Deep Tracks From 1971: „You’ve Got A Friend“ -Carole King. I recall the first time I played Carole King’s Tapestry album- it sounded like every song on the album was a hit single. In reality there were two singles from that album- „It’s Too Late“ went to #1 and „So Far Away“ #14. „You’ve Got […]

December-December Romance — Praying for Eyebrowz (Reblog)

I was telling Studly Doright about my recent blog posts dealing with songs featuring younger men in relationships with older women. He’d never heard the term May-December romance. “That’s us,” he said, when I finished my explanation. “That’s not at all us,” I countered. “Sure it is. You’re way older than I am.” To be […]

‘New Horizons’ — One of the Most Beautiful Songs Ever Written?

This song, written by guitarist and vocalist Justin Hayward, is from the Moody Blues’ Seventh Sojourn album, released in 1972.

To my mind, this is one of the most beautifully written and produced songs that I know — and so underrated.

What is more, its message is very poignant for our times, a time of change, where new horizons are literally opening up for us, so we can leave all our present nightmares behind. Godspeed to us all.

Is Life ‘A Simple Game’? The Visionary B-Side from 1968 — Astrology Musings

This is one of my favourite Moody Blues’ songs, composed by keyboardist Mike Pinder in 1968, at a time when the world was convulsed with anger, riot, division, assassination and talk of revolution. *Please take note of the lyrics.

Released as a B Side to ‘Ride My See-saw’, and later covered wonderfully by The Four Tops, I think this song captures the mood of the time — but most especially and prophetically, of our own time, all these years later. It’s a call for clarity, truth and justice. But most important of all, it is visionary.

This fantastic song did not appear on one of their albums until the 1974 double disc, ‘This Is The Moody Blues’.

The Great Mutation into Air Signs

I think we are, right now, ‘on the threshold’ of a more free, social, meaningful and humanitarian age. The birth pangs are all around us, symbolised in the sky by the up and coming Great Conjunction and Great Mutation, that is Jupiter and Saturn conjoining closely at 0 degrees Aquarius on December 21 2020. This marks the first transition of this Great Conjunction fully into the Air Element (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius) since the early 13th century. This new Age of Air will last around 200 years and will transform our materialistic civilisation.

Many people thought the Sixties were such an enlightening time, that we were entering the so-called Age of Aquarius, but I contend this was wrong, spurred on by the false, illusory trends of a social revolution. Amidst all that manufactured chaos of the late Sixties, ‘A Simple Game’ appeared, a truly hopeful and visionary creation that speaks to us all the more now.

But times of transition are always difficult, fraught and often protracted. I wish Godspeed to us all on this new and hopeful journey.

Although I do remember some songs very well doesn’t mean I knew the title. The same happened with the song I am sharing today. I could not recognize the title, but once I heard the song… beautiful! It was confusing because some sources said it was released in 1980 and some in 1979. However, I […]
