Moody Blues ~ You and Me

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by Kaleva (a host of the Video & Multimedia forum).



There's a leafless tree in Asia
Under the sun there's a homeless man
There's a forest fire in the valley
Where the story all began

What will be our last thought?
Do you think it's coming soon?
Will it be a comfort
Or the pain of a burning wound?

All we are trying to say
Is we are all we've got
You and me just cannot fail
If we never, never stop


You're an ocean full of faces
And you know that we believe
We're just a wave that drifts around you
Singing all our hopes and dreams
We look around in wonder
At the work that has been done
By the visions of our father
Touched by his loving son

All we are trying to say
Is we are all we've got
You and me just cannot fail
If we never, never stop
All we are trying to say
Is we are all we've got
You and me just cannot fail
If we never, never stop
You and me just cannot fail
If we never, ever, never, ever stop...

1. Great tune

they should have been inducted into the hall of fame on the first round.

4. Hall of fame is a farce as far as I am concerned.

Very true words, we better start working together or we will all succumb to the ones that would enslave us and destroy our world for profit, or should I say have enslaved us.

9. Less who they have inducted than who they haven't inducted.

I honestly don't pay attention to their inductees anymore.

10. That's what I meant

just the song your username is named after should have got them in whenever the beatles and stones were honored

7. Thank you!

This was written around 40 years ago. Still a favorite. Today the critics call them pretentious. Really?

8. I love my Moodies!

If they aren't in the Hall of Fame, that, in and of itself, discredits the Hall of Fame. The Moody Blues are, were, and always will be amazing and transforming.

12. I've seen them probably over a dozen times.

Going back to the Mike Pinder days.

It's a crime that they haven't been inducted. Graeme Edge (drummer) is almost 71 years old now, and still rocking. I should check the listings. They usually play Clearwater in March or April about every year.

13. Locking

From the forum SOP:

Thank you.
