The Most Philosophical Song You Ever Heard


This may be a little too deeply personal for some, so reader discretion is advised. Don't know the reason, stayed here all season. Nothing to show but this brand new tattoo. But it's a real beauty, a Mexican cutie. How it got here I haven't a clue.
Blew out my flip-flop, stepped on a pop top, cut my heel had to cruise on back home. But there's booze in the blender and soon it will render that frozen concoction that helps me hang on.

So many of the songs chosen are touching stories, or romances but have little to do with philosophy. I think that this thread has been off track for quite a while.

Douglas, I'm surprised that you wouldn't think anyone would remember Cat's in the Cradle. It still gets play on the radio. 

Moody Blues, Threshold of a Dream. 'In the beginning'

"It riles them to believe that we percieve the web they weave"

The Q anon group should use this as their battle cry...

 

Just bought all the remastered versions and DAMN some of them are outstanding.

That band is really unique. As a kid I enjoyed the occasional 'trip', and was into

astral traveling, metaphysics, etc, so they really spoke to me.

Suzanne by Leonard Cohen is another.

 

"And Jesus was a sailor when he walked upon the water
And he spent a long time watching from his lonely wooden tower
And when he knew for certain only drowning men could see him
He said all men will be sailors then until the sea shall free them"

The Moody Blues in general were most philosophical. Nothing like it/them and their run of excellent and unique recordings in their day.  They took the musical experimentation of the Beatles to the next level. The rock critiques generally despised them as "pretentious" , but overall, much of their music has aged very well and still has something uniquely philosophical to say that people can relate to. Not to mention some very good digital remasters to choose from that should make audiophiles happy.
