The Top Ten

2 Isn't Life Strange - The Moody Blues Isn't Life Strange - The Moody Blues V 1 Comment
3 If You Could Read My Mind - Gordon Lightfoot If You Could Read My Mind - Gordon Lightfoot

Among the absolute best lyrics of all-time, and sung pretty damn well too.

"...you won't read that book again because the ending's just too hard to take..."

So beautiful and painful at the same time, as it captures so much feeling and thought accurately and directly - Billyv

Couldn't agree more, Billy. Arguably the most haunting expression of love gone wrong, ever. Exquisitely profound stream of consciousness. Almost Arthurian in ambiance. Some excellent cuts on this list, bud.
