Roxy Music - More Than This



Gadabout has always thought More Than This to be one of the most beautiful songs ever written. I had the rare opportunity to see Bryan Ferry live and listen to him sing this classic at the Olympic Theater of Seattle in 2000. I sat in the front row and never blinked an eye the entire evening. It was a riveting experience. God bless you, Bryan, for sharing your talents with the world.

Music binds us together as a society. Music is beautiful and radiant. I am guessing there is plenty of music in heaven, where as hell most likely plays music backwards. Maybe in hell you have to listen to the Beatles White Album over and over again. Not in heaven though, you only have to listen to the Beatles if you really want to. Yep, music is good, it provides us a soothing medium with which we can share our passions and beliefs with others. Music brings peace.

More Than This

I could feel at the time
There was no way of knowing
Fallen leaves in the night
Who can say where they're blowing
As free as the wind
And hopefully learning
Why the sea on the tide
Has no way of turning
CHORUS
More than this-there is nothing
More than this-tell me one thing
More than this-there is nothing
It was fun for a while
There was no way of knowing
Like a dream in the night
Who can say where we're going
No care in the world
Maybe I'm learning
Why the sea on the tide
Has no way of turning


Note from Gadabout: Youtube has over 100 metric foot tons of Roxy Music videos!
