"The Logical Song" is a 1979 song performed by the English rock group Supertramp. The song was released as the lead single from their sixth studio album, Breakfast in America (1979), in March 1979 by A&M Records. "The Logical Song" is Supertramp's biggest chart hit in both the United States and their native United Kingdom. "The Logical Song" rose to No. 7 in the UK and No. 6 in the US Billboard chart. Paul McCartney named ‘The Logical Song’ as his favorite song of the year in 1979. "The Logical Song" also appeared on Supertramp co-founder Roger Hodgson's album, Classics Live, a collection of his live performances from acoustic, band and orchestra shows recorded on his Breakfast in America World Tour.
Roger Hodgson co-founded Supertramp in 1969 and was the driving force behind what fans call the 14 golden years of the band. He wrote, sang, and arranged the enduring rock standards that made Supertramp a worldwide phenomenon with album sales in excess of 60 million. In addition to “Take the Long Way Home,” Roger also gave us timeless classics such as Give a Little Bit, Breakfast in America, The Logical Song, Dreamer, School, It's Raining Again, Fool's Overture, and many more. Enjoy this performance from an April 2016 show in London. Roger is currently on tour and selling out shows around the world.

Roger comments on his evergreen classic, Breakfast in America: "It's consistently one of the most popular songs in the set and it just seems to ignite a wave of joy in the audience when they hear the first chords. Never could I have imagined when I wrote this song at age 19 that it would be gaining in popularity, if that is even possible, over 40 years later. It's the playful, fun, jubilant quality that people love to hear and sing along to." ~ Roger Hodgson Roger Hodgson, formerly of Supertramp, wrote & composed Breakfast in America, including all of the arrangements, when he was in his teens before he co-founded the band. Roger's Breakfast in America, the title track off the blockbuster album, was ruling the radio airwaves around the world in 1979.

It went on to sell over 20 million copies and still selling today. The album hit #1 in almost every country around the world & stayed at the top of the charts in many countries for a full year. Roger's other timeless classics from the album include The Logical Song, Take the Long Way Home, Child of Vision & Lord is it Mine. Roger also gave us Give a Little Bit, Dreamer, It's Raining Again, Fool's Overture, School and more. Roger was the band's chief architect & visionary when it came to arranging and producing the albums & designing the stage shows. Although Roger and Supertramp's other co-founder shared writing credit, they actually wrote & composed separately with each singing their own songs: http://bit.ly/1Kfgu0W LYRICS PAGE http://www.rogerhodgson.com/lyrics/lyrics.html "Seeing Hodgson as a solo artist is every bit as entertaining as it was to see him as part of his former band, Supertramp. Fans expecting anything less than a full-scale night of hits and memories from this charismatic performer need not worry." ~Good Times Magazine Roger's band consists of the following multi-talented musicians: Aaron Macdonald (Sax, Keys, Melodica, Backing Voc.) Bryan Head (Drums) David J. Carpenter (Bass, Backing Voc.) Kevin Adamson (Keys, Backing Voc.) Video filmed & edited by Wim Daans - London May 2013
Another band that broke up right during one of their Peak periods. A bizarre Tale of Two brilliant guys but one whose vocals and songwriting were the heart of the band and another who had a smaller percentage of that heart but continued to push on even though every show there was probably an elephant in the room.
