In honor of my starting up my series on falls prevention, and because Music Moves Me is allowing us a "freebie" week where we can blog about any type of music, I decided to think about songs that mention balance, or have the word "balance" in their title.
This first song came immediately to mind.
A little heavy metal is next. My son introduced me, years ago, to a group called Killswitch Engage. He went to one of their concerts here in Johnson City, New York before they hit the big time. This definitely won't be a favorite of many of my readers (or me, to be truthful) but the title "When the Balance is Broken" fits the balance theme.
John Kay and Steppenwolf (my spouse is a big Steppenwolf fan) in a song called The Balance.
And finally, two song by one of my favorite groups, the Moody Blues.
In August of 1970, the Moody Blues released an album called "A Question of Balance". What follows is two songs from the album. The first, Question, was written by Justin Hayward.
Question doesn't have balance in the lyrics, but, hey, this is a Freebie week.
The Balance, written by Mike Pinder, does fit the theme. Is it strange that so many songs about balance talk about mental balance, or even the futility of war? I didn't mean it that way - it just happened.
Finally, a song that is plainly about about war - Lives in the Balance - Jackson Browne.
