Forever Autumn

Back when I was first in college (try #1), I became a big fan of the Moody Blues ... okay, there was a woman involved, but I had always like the band.... Anyway, Justin Hayward - guitarist and lead singer of the Moody Blues - did a project with Jeff Wayne; a musical adaptation of HG Wells War of the Worlds.

This song was my favorite from the whole album, and contains one of my favorite set of lyric lines ever:

Through autumn’s golden gown we used to kick our way
You always loved this time of year
Those fallen leaves lie undisturbed now
’Cause you're not here

Here's Hayward singing the song with chamber orchestra backup:
