Minstrel In The Gallery

Lyrics

The minstrel in the gallery
Looked down upon the smiling faces.
He met the gazes observed the spaces
Between the old men's cackle.

Life's a long song ... Too many try to read too much into lyrics that are pictures of where Ian was in any given moment. Better to simply enjoy and realize genius ahead of is all.

I love Jethro Tull just as much as the next person. But putting them top five in the 70s that's a hard call to agree with... There is no doubt they r great!!

Discussion. Conclusion. War is Pain. We are just happy musicians that wander the streets. Want more scholatic university? Plato and Soc
agree that Homer is the first too censor. He teaches that music and alcohol and girls are the proper seekings of the ancient Patria or higher classes. Plato then cites, why would the tit-til-ated men of action throw them selfs into miltary raids, part suicide-al, if all they did was read Homer's poems by Homer about booze and girls?

I like how, in the middle of a Medieval Folk-Type Song, there is suddenly an electric guitar solo.
