Moody Blues

Band Name Origins:

  • Around 1962 Ray Thomas and Mike Pinder (2 of the original band members) formed The Krew Cats and spent the next year or so touring in Hamburg before disbanding and forming The Moody Blues 5, shortening it to The M & B 5 when Mitchell and Butlers Breweries agreed to sponsor the band. When this sponsorship did not materialise they changed the name to The Moody Blues in 1964. (Source: Official Moody Blues website www.moodyblues.co.uk) Submitted by: SteveDTM

Story about this misheard lyric by: Wisnu Aji

Finally, the song itself I posting here. With their orchestral formula, they are best known for having influence to other artists. For the lyrical content of this song, band member Justin Hayward wrote the last line of choruses as "Oh, how I love you" indicated that how Justin fell in love with a woman. However, when I hear this song, Justin doesn't sing "How" but jumping into the love letters as "Oh, I love you" indicated that Justin now fell in love with a woman. About this song: "Nights in White Satin" is a part of track #7, "The Night", featured on their second studio album, "Days of Future Passed", released on 10 November 1967. "Nights in White Satin" was written by Justin Hayward while the poem, "Late Lament", was written by Peter Knight and Graeme Edge and narrated by Mike Pinder. With its fusion of orchestral and rock elements, "Nights in White Satin" was one of the first progressive rock song ever to reaching the Top 20 internationally. When first released in 1967, this song reaching #19 on the UK Singles Chart and #103 on Billboard's Pop Chart in 1967. It was the first significant chart entry by the team since "Go Now" and its recent lineup change, in which Denny Laine had resigned and both Justin and John Lodge had joined. Upon its 1972 re-release, "Nights in White Satin" topping Cash Box's Pop Chart and Canada chart. The power ballad also reaching #2 on Billboard's Pop Chart and #8 on Australia chart. In the wake of its international success, this song charting again on the UK Singles Chart in late 1972 and climbing to #9. This song was released yet again in 1979, and charting for a third time on the UK Singles Chart, reaching #14. Since its success, this song was later covered by many artists. This song is also notable for its spoken-word poem, "Late Lament", narrated by keyboardist, Mike Pinder. The end of this song was ending coldly instead of fade-out with Mike Pinder playing gong at around 7 minutes and 5 seconds and lasting at 7 minutes and 38 seconds.

Upbeat Songs With Depressing Lyrics:

"Go Now!"
The Lyrics:
We've already said, ... goodbye.
Since you gotta go, oh, you had better go now.
Go now. Before you see me cry.
I don't want you to tell me just what you intend to do now.
How many times do I have to tell you, Darlin'
Darlin', I'm still in love with you now. Whoaaa.
Why:
Back in 1965, the Moody Blues were much more of jazzier rockin' blues group than they would later become and were the new English crossover to America find. Although their U.S. Top 10 hit, "Go Now!" had already been a #1 hit in the UK back in 1964, and originally it was recorded in the 1920's by American jazz/blues artists, Bessie Banks (the song is written by Bessie's husband, Larry Banks and Milton Bennett). The song had an obvious upbeat tempo (good dance tune) but is obviously about the depressing feeling someone gets (in the Moody Blues' case, from the perspective of a man) when their lover breaks things off with them, but then won't leave them. And the Moody Blues made it even more poignant with the vocal stylings of then lead singer, Denny Laine and the pounding keyboards of Mike Ponder and the sharp stylings on the tambourine of percussionist Ray Thomas. In the early 1990's, the Moody Blues' version of "Go Now!" got new life when the British TV comedy show, "Splitting Image" used it in an episode regarding the feelings many Brits felt at the time that then Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher should resign. "Go Now!" was also later recorded by Ozzy Osbourne. Unfortunately, the Moody Blues have been one of those few progressive rock artists of the 1960's and 1970's (into the 1980's and 90's) not to have been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame.

It was late August 1981 and I heard this song on the radio. The album it was on, "Long Distance Voyager", had already topped the U.S. album charts and that week the droid spaceprobe Voyager II had arrived at planet Saturn, taking zillions of photos and expanding our scientific knowledge tremendously. After this song was done playing the DJ said "Long Distance Voyager II". Geddit?

Hidden Messages:

"Just A Singer In A Rock & Roll Band / Seventh Sojo"
If you don't pay attention to the lyrics, it just sounds like a powerful song about confusion & angst. If you study the lyrics, it calls for a person who sings in a rock band to help change the world in a mysterious way that only he knows, but not control it, like the Who's Tommy tried. I do rock vocals, & I seem to be the only one who knows about a mysterious way to help change the world, by ending confusion, but I would not rule it, even if everyone begged me to. I plan to use my musical abilities to help spread the message & unite all peoples peacefully, so it's like pure prophecy, but no one except a person in my position would be aware of it. I tried to ask the band what inspired the very unusual scenario, but they never replied. ( If anyone wants to know more about this, you can contact me through the website listed below my parodies here. )
