I reckon I’m like most people. Well, in a few ways anyhow. I associate songs with times in my life. Just humming a certain song will take me back decades. Yes, it’s a comforting escape, in most cases. It can likewise be heart wrenching. Also, it seems many people have songs they use for inspiration. I do as well. These are the songs that transcend and sustain us.
I’ve always been a huge Moody Blues fan. As long as I can remember, really. I know I have all their music, in various mediums (vinyl, 8-Track, Cassette, CD, and MP3). To me their music is haunting, in an almost progressive, orchestral-like way (I know, I just made up a new genre). I guess it was natural that I fell into one of their songs for… well… I can’t really call it inspiration exactly. The best I can explain it is it has become my anthem in a way.
The song, made in 1987 (or 1988), is I Know You’re Out There Somewhere. It’s a song that is tough for me to listen to, but which I can not resist. It feels like an addiction.
I have posted the link to it from Ryan’s Amazon affiliate program (above), if you want to download the MP3 now. Or just listen on YouTube by clicking here.
