Supertramp: “The Logical Song”
ALBUM: Breakfast in America
WRITERS: Rick Davies, Roger Hodgson
Peaked at number-six on the Billboard Hot 100.
Former Supertramp singer and guitarist Roger Hodgson tells us he thinks he knows why “The Logical Song” has remained relevant to this day. “I learned at a young age, I think, that if you follow your heart and your instincts they’ll serve you right. Especially the songs, actually, I wrote, have really stood the test of time very well. And I think songs like ‘The Logical Song,’ which is saying, ‘Please tell me who I am,’ I mean I think there’s a lot of that feeling around, you know. ‘What the hell’s going on? Life is kind of falling apart around us.'”
Roger Hodgson celebrates his 67th birthday today (March 21st).
