Broken Dream by Justin Hayward




"Gone are the days when I could bounce right back again".

Hope you will like this song by Justin Hayward.  He is still touring with the Moody Blues but he just released a solo album (Spirits of A Western Sky)  and this particular song was on his last solo album (TheView From A Hill) but this time, it is done in a Blue Grass style of music.  The musical arrangement might be slightly different, but the singing is the same and just as good.  I love that his voice is just as strong and clear as it ever has been. (I couldn't find a video of this song from his new album, you will just have to take my word for it!)    Richard and I are big fans of the Moody Blues.
Hope you like this too.

And of course, I have to give you a western sky!   This is another sunset from Arabia Mountain.
 I hope that I can talk Richard into doing a guest post about the Moody Blues.  I think it is time to hear from him again, don't you?

  2. Yes, guest post, please! :-)
    Lovely sunset picture.
    I like Bluegrass, although I must admit I can listen to it only for so long.

      And I must admit, just like country, I don't like ALL of it, but I do know what I like!

  3. Hi Kay

    This is,indeed,a beautiful song and,yes,it is time for another post from the man himself. He may not remember but, about 15 years ago, he sent me a tape of Al Stewart's album, Between the Wars, and this song was sandwiched between that album and an early outing by The Redneck Two in which Rick and his cousin paid homage to their adopted country.

    Perhaps, he could cover Al and The Redneck Two in his post.

    I know Rick won't believe this, but the tape is one of my favourites - all 3 parts- and I played it only last week. By way of spurring him to action, my order of preference is Al,The Redneck Boys and Justin.

    Kind Regards

    Henry

    1. Oh my goodness, Richard is rated above Justin?! Egads, we better not tell Justin Hayward!
      So funny, those tapes that Richard and Alan made, I have been telling him he needs to play them in front of people!
      Thanks so much for your comment, Henry! You know your brilliant friend Richard so well!

    1. Oh, you are so right! Sorry, Richard is my English husband!! He takes almost all the photos but he is sweet and lets me use them on my blog!
      He did a guest post about a sunrise in Eastbourne, in England...it was called "Dawn Is A Feeling", which is ANOTHER Moody Blues song, lead vocals by Justin Hayward and Mike Pender!!
      Now, Arabia Mountain is about a 10 minute drive away from us but it feels like are a world away!

      There that should be the Arabia Mountain website!!

  11. Wow, he has a really lovely voice---very easy to listen to. And that sunset is a wondrous sight--absolutely gorgeous! I am able to watch the sun rise over the mountains every morning, but it's been a long time since I saw the sun set.

    1. Oh, we have seen the Moody Blues more than any other band. It was our son's first concert and he loves them too!
      I wondered if anyone else noticed that quote above, that line really means a lot to me now, as I am ahem...getting on a bit!!

  13. Remember the Moody Blues and of course, my favorite album (back then it was called that) is (of course) Days of Future Passed. Thanks for a trip down memory lane. I must confess to enjoying some country music, but bluegrass not at all, but then there's always some music for everyone.

    1. Hey! You would like Richard's "Dawn Is A Feeling" post!!
      Do you see in my profile that I was born in Toccoa, Georgia? Country and bluegrass music is in my blood, I don't like all of it, I like what I like and I can't explain it! :-)
