Put The Moody Blues in the Rock & Roll HOF!
It's long been a travesty that one of the seminal British rock bands of the 1960s and '70s, the Moody Blues, have thus far been denied their rightful place in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. With their landmark albums Days of Future Passed, In Search of the Lost Chord, To Our Children's Children's Children, On The Threshold of a Dream, and Every Good Boy Deserves Favour and the hits "Nights In White Satin", "Tuesday Afternoon", "Ride My See-Saw", "I'm Just A Singer (In A Rock and Roll Band)", "Voice In The Sky", "Eyes of a Child", "Dear Diary", and "Story In Your Eyes" to name a few, the Moody Blues took orchestral arrangements in rock to new levels, playing with full symphony accompaniments and introducing a new form of music that blended classical with psychedelia and blues with baroque, all with an incredible set of vocal arrangements that have not lost their power over time. Why the Hall of Fame has seen fit to ignore the Moody Blues up until now is a mystery, but one that can be rectified. Rock & Roll is nothing if not an extension of the popular will of the people, so let's make sure the Hall of Fame knows how we the people feel about the Moody Blues!
