Goodbye Stranger is a really well-realize d and uniquely constructed song. It's a seamless fusion of progressive sophisticati o n with pop sensibility. One of a kind.
Doesn't sound quite right.
One of those must have albums for any rock collection.

way cool band. they fit rite in in those crazy 70's
One of my fave groups
Wow!!! Just beautiful .... Saw them Alpine Valley in WI and was definitely one of the top 10 shows of the over 200 I've been blessed to see!
Like this song awesome
This tune is a "69" chev' floored on a freeway somewhere-:)
I like this song a lot, but seeing Sister Golden Hair matched with its style leaves me, well, psychotic. Sister Golden Hair is one of the most overplayed and annoying songs. . .yep, I said it.
It's a little known fact that the lady on the cover went on to play Arnold's alter ego when he went through customs on Mars in Total Recall
Supertramp has always been one of my favorite 70s bands. The precision in their musicality is just awesome! I recently purchased their supertramp live in Paris DVD . A must have for any real fan. You can actually see them perform all of your favorite songs. The audio and visual is just phenomenal!! ! ! ! I got to see them live in the 70s. Never get tired of them! I crank the DVD thru my surround sound stereo with my headphones while watching the DVD. Closest thing to being at the show!!
I remember listening to the best music as a kid in the '70's-- best times ever!!! Best music Ever!!!
Cool tune. There sure ain't music like this out there anymore.
Supernatural :)
Miss that band
Love this song, but my family looks at me funny when I play it. -_- I'm so alone in my music.
Cool
Always wished that solo at the end would last a little longer.
One of the singular best tunes ever written and performed. In my top 10 from the 70's The entire album is a remarkable gem. I knew both Mary and Jane around this time. What delicious memories. Best wishes sweet ones.
baldwin-moti o n
had the look to see them.. your right.. on of a kind........ . . . . . . . . . .
AWSOME AND UNIQUE BAND
Ah ! Being on the road in a band in the 80's . Wish I could go back...
gnemas
a prominent flute part ?

The words "Goodbye stranger, it's been nice. Hope you find your paradise" were used in my graduation ceremony. Even 30 years on, I'm taken back when I hear this song.
This is a great song.
My mom worked for A&M Records years ago and would bring home different records all the time... This was one of them and I've listening to this kind of "Rick&Soul" ever since!
This is one of the single best songs ever. It is part of a remarkable album, Breakfast in America. The guitar work at the end still chills my spine. (And the story does ring very true. But now Mary and Jane can find you again on Facebook.) "Sweet devotion."
Instantly transports me back to 1980. Damn Pandora never bothers to display the YEAR that the album was produced. How hard is that???
mtandjd
my fathers lack of presensce mixed with the the fact that he this on the only road trip we took makes it special. drunkely said.
words that ring true naturally after living some years
Breakfast in America really is their best album, imo.
I didn't realize that this was Supertramp.. . this is the first time I've heard it on Pandora. It sounds a lot different from "Take The Long Way Home" and "The Logical Song."
Great song. Good memories!
This song is Epic

Not very "unknown" they were huge in the '80 and early '90's
supertramp is the best unknown band!!!
craddb
I'VE BEEN LISTENING TO THIS SONG SINCE I WAS A KID AND NEVER UNDERSTOOD THESE LYRICS. NOW THAT I'VE READ THE LYRICS AND HEAR THE SONG I REALIZE WHY THIS SONG LANDED IN MY HEART AS A KID, 30 YEARS AGO. SUMPERTRAMP WAS TELLING MY STORY.......
