A Passion Play

Sole survivor. No witness to the crime. I must act fast to cover up. I think that there`s still time. He`d seem hopeless and lost with this note. They`ll buy into the words that I wrote.

A tune with a magical quality, and one of my favorite acoustic songs.

and more
 
Or you can go for some heavy rockers:
Teacher

Cross eyed mary
Thick as a brick edit 6(the super man for president edit. I think that is edit 6)
A passion play edit 3(the memory bank edit. I think that is edit 3)
Warchild

Uniform
Seal driver
Awol
and more

All I like is prog related bands beginning late 60's/early 70's. Their music from 1968 - 83 has the composition and sound which will never be beaten. Perfect blend of jazz, classical, folk and rock.

For very personal reasons, my favorite song of all time. And yes, Stand Up is highly underrated.

I can't seem to get Fylingdale Flyer out of my head these days, so that's the one for me.

Benefit is by far my favorite Tull lp.....so I'll have to choose other and pick 'Nothing To Say' from that one.
IMHo some of Ian's  best lyrics.
 
"Climb a tower of freedom,
paint your own deceiving sign.
It's not my power
to criticize or to ask you to be blind
To your own pressing problem
and the hate you must unwind.
So ask of me no answer
there is none that I could give
you wouldn't find.
I went your way ten years ago
and I've got nothing to say.
Nothing to say."

I love that one too. So underappreciated. Woody. Evan's piano is so lovely.
