"The Other Side Of Life" - one of my favorites.
Seen them in Tampa when Long Distance Voyager came out.
Great show!

Another Moodies song I've always liked:

WILDEST DREAMS
(Written by Justin Hayward)

Once upon a time
Once when you were mine
I remember skies
Reflected in your eyes
I wonder where you are
I wonder if you think about me
Once upon a time
In your wildest dreams

Once the world was new
Our bodies felt the morning dew
That greets the brand new day
We couldn't tear ourselves away
I wonder if you care
I wonder if you still remember
Once upon a time
In your wildest dreams

And when the music plays
And when the words are touched with sorrow
When the music plays
I hear the sound I had to follow
Once upon a time

Once beneath the stars
The universe was ours
Love was all we knew
And all I knew was you
I wonder if you know
I wonder if you think about it
Once upon a time
In your wildest dreams

Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah
Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah
Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah
Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah

And when the music plays
And when the words are touched with sorrow
When the music plays
And when the music plays
I hear the sound I had to follow
Once upon a time

Once upon a time
Once when you were mine
I remember skies
Mirrored in your eyes
I wonder where you are
I wonder if you think about me
Once upon a time
In your wildest dreams (ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah)
In your wildest dreams (ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah)
In your wildest dreams (ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah)
In your wildest dreams (ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah)

Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah
Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah
Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah
Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah

There is no way I can pass up posting the companion track. Both lyrically and in video presentation, this song and Wildest Dreams form a single story.

I KNOW YOU'RE OUT THERE SOMEWHERE
(Written by Justin Hayward)

I know you're out there somewhere
Somewhere, somewhere
I know, I'll find you somehow
And somehow I'll return again to you

The mist is lifting slowly
I can see the way ahead
And I've left behind the empty streets
That once inspired my life

And the strength of the emotion
Is like thunder in the air
'Cause the promise that we made each other
Haunts me to the end

I know you're out there somewhere
Somewhere, somewhere
I know you're out there somewhere
Somewhere you can hear my voice

I know, I'll find you somehow
Somehow, somehow
I know, I'll find you somehow
And somehow I'll return again to you

The secret of your beauty
And the mystery of your soul
I've been searching
For in everyone I meet

And the times I've been mistaken
It's impossible to say
And the grass is growing
Underneath our feet

I know you're out there somewhere
Somewhere, somewhere
I know you're out there somewhere
Somewhere you can hear my voice

I know, I'll find you somehow
Somehow, somehow
I know, I'll find you somehow
And somehow I'll return again to you

You see, I know you're out there somewhere
Oh, yes I know you're out there somewhere

You see, I know I'll find you somehow
Oh, yes I know I'll find you somehow

The words that I remember
From my childhood still are true
That there's none so blind
As those who will not see

And to those who lack the courage
And say, it's dangerous to try
Well, they just don't know
That love eternal will not be denied

I know you're out there somewhere
Somewhere, somewhere
I know you're out there somewhere
Somewhere you can hear my voice

I know, I'll find you somehow
Somehow, somehow
I know, I'll find you somehow
And somehow I'll return again to you

Yes, I know it's gonna happen
I can feel you getting near
And soon we'll be returning
To the fountain of our youth

And if you wake up wondering
In the darkness I'll be there
My arms will close around you
And protect you with the truth

I know you're out there somewhere
Somewhere, somewhere
I know you're out there somewhere
Somewhere you can hear my voice

I know, I'll find you somehow
Somehow, somehow
I know, I'll find you somehow
And somehow I'll return again to you

Interestingly enough, this is the second time I've posted this song in response to someone posting Wildest Dreams...

_________________
Love prevails.
~ Tracie Mckinney-Hammon

Have patience with everything unresolved in your heart and to try to love the questions themselves as if they were locked rooms or books written in a very foreign language. Don't search for the answers, which could not be given to you now, because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps then, someday far in the future, you will gradually, without even noticing it, live your way into the answer.
~ Rainier Maria Rilke

Great follow-up, Savor Dam, and I agree the two songs connect together quite well thematically. Well done! Thumbs Up Smile

Requiesce in pace, Ray Thomas.

At least you know the Moodies will be inducted, even if you couldn't make it to the ceremony.

Breathe deep, the gathering gloom...

Ray's flute was certainly part of the magic of the Moody's sound. RIP.
