Flashback Friday: John Miles - Music
How about a rousing, cheesy ballad for our flashback today? It doesn't get any more earnest than this. Music, by English musician John Miles, was a big hit in Europe in the late 70's. It alternates between tender balladry and out-an-out symphonic grandeur. If you know me, it'll be no surprise that I'm in it for the symphonic grandeur part, particularly the last couple of minutes. I always laugh at the first falsetto verse in the song (soooo cheesy), but by the end of the track I'm brought around to loving everything about this gargantuan piece of over-the-top awesomeness. We don't have this kind of stuff in us anymore. It's a shame, really.
