The Moody Blues

XM Channel 46 was playing some good tunes on my way into work this morning. The last song I heard was “The Afternoon” by The Moody Blues. This is the second time I’ve heard it on XM, and before then I never knew this song had such a cool extended version that gets cut off on traditional radio. I’ve never owned any Moody Blues albums, obviously. That song is so good, though, isn’t it? The harmonies are incredible. I love any song that features minor chords, it seems, so it’s no surprise this one really resonates with me. I got to thinking – whatever happened to The Moody Blues? I mean you just don’t hear about them any more. So I checked their website and guess what? They’re still touring! Granted, the venues are pretty small, but they’re going to be in Toms River, NJ on October 27th. I wonder if Rob is interested in seeing them – he’s not one for the hippy music so much, so this is kind of doubtful. Then again, sometimes he surprises me.

Oh shoot! I just researched further… that show is completely sold out, which is mind boggling because the tickets started at $78 and went all the way up to $258! Dang. Guess there are some hard core Moody Blues fans.

    The Moody Blues….that brings back memories. In college, Mike and I would party hearty Thursday through Saturday and on Sundays, after lunch, we would go back to his dorm room and nap to the Moody Blues! LOL

    I would think that most Moody Blues fans have never seen $258 at one time.
