“Xanadu” from 1977’s Hemispheres
Inspired by Samual Taylor Coleridge’s “Kubla Khan,” this song is the band at a level of eerie musical composition and feel similar to some old Moody Blues or Yes. Really exceptional playing here.
I won’t quote any lyrics for this one though. Read the poem; it’s available on the internet. The song is written in the first-person, and presents an aspect of the journey to Kubla Khan’s great and beautiful pleasure dome and it’s honeydew and milk of paradise.
Is it possible to have too much of a good thing?
Listen to this song for the answer, and enjoy the incredible music even more.
