    Does the album hold up?

    More from TRepasky

    Days of Future Passed by The Moody Blues


    This was the first album of music I listened to after my near death experience that moved me. Nights in White Satin expressed in words and music the feelings I experienced.

    Today some forty years later, I am still moved by that song as well as others on this album.


    I believe that music can change how we think and influences us in subtle ways.


    An excerpt of the lyrics...

    "Beauty I'd always missed

    With these eyes before

    Just what the truth is

    I can't say anymore


    'Cause I love you

    Yes I love you

    Oh how I love you


    Gazing at people

    Some hand in hand

    Just what I'm going through

    They can't understand


    Some try to tell me

    Thoughts they cannot defend

    Just what you want to be

    You will be in the end"
