Boston: “More Than a Feeling”
WRITER: Tom Scholz
Peaked at number-five on the Billboard Hot 100.
Boston guitarist and songwriter Tom Scholz calls “More Than a Feeling” “one of those songs that did not come together right away.” He explains what he means by that. “It took I think it was about four years between the time that I had the verse and had the chorus and had them both together in one song the way I thought they ought to be. I never would have picked that song to be the first big Boston song or to be such a big hit as a single.”
Boston’s self-titled debut album was released 40 years ago today.
