Song of the day (10/14/06)

Supertramp. I love Supertramp. The Crime of the Century/Breakfast in America albums are highly recommendable to any soul. This time I’ve selected the song ‘School’.Supertramp

Bloody hippies! I don’t know what’s up with the creepy Asian characters, though.

Anyway, School starts off with a fantastically awesome harmonica solo for 45 seconds, giving you the Western feeling like nothing else. The rest of the song is piano, bass guitar, regular guitar, drums, male vocals and some other shite.

The song itself is about how the youth should rebel against established authority, in this case teachers. It basically incites the listener to doubt anything teachers tell you since there’s no reason they know it better than you. And that you should find out stuff for yourself. Jolly good!
