Nights In White Satin

Lyrics

Nights in white satin, never reaching the end,
Letters I've written, never meaning to send.
Beauty I'd always missed, with these eyes before,
Just what the truth is, I can't say anymore.

BTW, the poem at the end may be the best part.
Not 'infamy' dude. Ecstasy...! Unless you never got the chance. Then...

This song will go down in infamy! Used to play it at my junior high dances and remember looking for that cute girl to slow dance with! Epic memories!
This never gets old. ♥

At 74 still tear up at MB music. First hesrd them in '68
If there is a perfect song it's this one
The Moody Blues has been my favorite band all these years and i am 53!

Breathe deep the gathering gloom

beeeuutifull l l . . .

Heavy especially the ending
Love it
TOTALLY AWESOME!!!! BEAUTIFULLY ORCHESTRATED ! ! !
I seem to recall hearing the orchestral score at the end on an sound clip of an old radio soap opera. Is this true, or am I just imagining things?
Life is amazing. I can only imagine what awaits us on the other side... (((((<3))))) to you all.
Russ?
My fave song!
Never a bad way to start the day. She still tears at my heart.
thanx russell for the opening lyric...
This tears at my heart. I miss him.

They can't understand !! So true
Or it could be an unrequited love.
I'm not sure but it seems he's reminiscing about a former love and cannot sleep thinking of her. He writes letters of his feelings but knows the relationship is over and sending the letters won't do any good. That's my take.
Great song but it goes on way too long.
I have not been able to understand what this song is about. Would love it if someone could let me know. Thank you
I love this song so much! But that doesn't mean I'm going to call today's music s**t. Just because you don't like something doesn't mean you have to talk s**t about it

Very powerful
This brings me back to when I was a child, I can remember so clearly my mother listening to this song, over and over ........... Now I understand .....
One of the most powerful songs of all time and of the Boomer Generation! Maybe after hearing this Kids now days wll understand why we consider most of theirmusic C$^&P!
The Moody Blues' music has helped me through many a low point in my life. Their music is a great portal to inner awakening & personal transformati o n . Especially love To Our Children's Childen's Children.... . . .
AS A MASTER ROSICRUCIAN, I HEAR THE MYSTICAL. Just what I'm going through, they can't understand
Where have the years gone? These guys are still performing. Love the Stones, but they seem to tour whenever! Still, glad that the Moodies and the stones are still with us.
Breathe deep, the gathering gloom. Watch lights fade from every room. Bedsitter people look back & relesent. Anothers days usless erergys spent.
One of the finest pieces of work to come out of My Boomer's Generation of music! Than people wonder why we are so impatient wth the CRAP coming out now days! Listen to this Kids! And Than MAYBE YOULL UNDERSTAND!
One of the most overlooked bands of the 70s, untill you hear them.
dgsummerfun
Moody Blues great band one of a kind! Saw them at pine knob with 30 piece orchestra! Great show!:):) keep smiling:):)
Reminding me of 1975 as we drove a Vega through snow storm, midnite, from town to town on an errant of the heart, visiting my gf but she was gone
This song has the best of both in it.. Justin belting it out and only him and instrumental . Omg I'm in love!!!
Such a haunting song... It Brings out a nostalgia for life in me. My chest grows and my heart accelerates as I draw a long heavy breath while reminiscing about better times...

No group player for player is better than the Moodies! Amazing band.......
The end of this is so great. I love symphony music.
In the venue of The Floyd, WHO, Parson Project, great album!
cowniew
Great cut on a great album. This album should be listened to all the way through.
Excellent song, excellent album.
Red is gray and yellow white, but we decide which is right, and which is an illusion.

These guys are *awesome*!
I agree, Dave. some of the groups put in the Hall of Fame don't compare in work or influence with the MB. The Moodies never played the game you need to play to get in.
roth775
Anyone have any idea why the Moody Blues are not in the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame. I mean good God they put in ABBA
Beautiful song. Lousy spoken word ending cannot sink it. Even that gong.
mattmhp
Well said Kagalis. . I have said this is the song I want played when I let loose this motral coil.
