Music Monday goes back to SCHOOL

I heard this song recently and remembered how much I like it—a tune from my youth by Supertramp on their hugely successful Crime of the Century album. “School” contains a catchy interlude and one of the most memorable extended solos of any song I know.

The tune also reminded me we should never stop learning, whether formally or informally. Tangential to that thought is the realization that “the older I get, the less I know.”

As a young girl, I felt differently though.

I thought I knew everything I needed to know by the time I was eighteen—the arrogance of youth.

Thankfully, age has tempered me. I hope I’m more tolerant and less judgmental of others, but more importantly, the only thing I know for certain is that I don’t know everything.

And where I used to think it was a weakness to not know, I now take it as an opportunity to learn something new.

Life is ever humbling, isn’t it?

Have a great week,

    Nice one Eden; I’d forgotten how accomplished Supertramp were. Thanks for that.

    Oh my gosh, I can see my 17 year old self in my best friend’s basement listening to this. We spent way too many hours staring at the cover with its constellation of stars, looking for signs of subliminal seduction. Oh, those were the days. Thanks for a fun start to my week, Eden! xo

  3. Another classic song. I’ve always liked that instrumental break at the middle – especially the keyboards.
