Roger Hodgson – The Logical Song

You can also support me by buying one of my books, as noted in the boxes interspersed throughout the webpage. And if you buy the books through the ebookit links, I get a larger cut and I get it sooner.

An evening pause: Hat tip to Edward Thelen, who continues to be the one evening pause suggester who tries to find sources other than youtube. Competition is a good thing, and Google and youtube need some competition.

Unfortunately, there was no way to embed the video shown at the Brighteon link, so sadly I still had to use youtube.

    This takes me back, good times in a simple life.

    I like music, but I do not seek it out. This song in particular was a pivotal moment in my life turning 17 in 1979. I Purchased my first car for $400, a 68 GTO, that came with mechanical troubles and eight track player. The most important part of the car.
    Breakfast in America was my first music purchase that I played over and over again. The logical song best illustrated the conflict I was feeling inside as I was soon to be 18 trying to decide what I would do when I graduate high school. (Spock was my role model)

    Logic and critical thinking over emotion and animal instincts has served me well for a happy life.
