Song #60: "The Story In Your Eyes"--The Moody Blues (1971)

It's the one song that became a hit for The Moody Blues from their seventh album, "Every Good Boy Deserves Favour" from 1971. Chock full of classic "Moodies" sound, the song is perfectly placed during Act I of their live shows.

This tune packs an extra punch in a short amount of time, and is a Moody Blues classic for all time. Now, there are a lot of emotional twists and turns lyrically for a small package, from confidently being in a rebuilding of one's life, likely after a lost love, to being worried for the next generation. Hot topics in 1971, and the same today.  :)

The version selected below is from their 2007 Tour, which I caught at Wolf Trap, which is where I will be again come this July.
