My music playlist for today (September 12, 2012 edition)

The Moody Blues put out more than one great progressive rock song.  But there’s one song The Moody Blues did that will live on in anyone’s memory if they ever heard it and took the time to appreciate it.

Nights in White Satin

That one song would be “Nights In White Satin.”

That is one progressive rock song that I do remember hearing on the radio many times from my childhood days in the isolation of central Idaho.  Maybe that particular radio station played it so often because it sounded so much like the “easy listening” music they’d play so much during the day — like Henry Mancini and the Ray Conniff orchestra and singers.

That’s not what “Nights In White Satin” was about.  It was haunting.  It was classical.  It was lovely.  It was moody.  It was blue.

It was The Moody Blues.

About A View From The Middle (Class)

Hi, my name's John. I've thought about this blogging stuff for a number of years now. I got into it for real on November 10, 2011, after suddenly losing my job in late October that year. I've been blogging ever since, and I kept it up on a daily basis over a period of a year and four months of being unemployed or under-employed, to try and paint a picture of what being jobless with a family to support can be like. Finally, on February 28, 2013, I got a better job that put us back into the "middle class." But then that job went away, and I took a job as a transit bus driver that put us more in a lower income bracket. Now, I want to blog again on a more regular basis to tell of the kinds of struggles people like us go through as we work toward something better. Who knows, maybe I can actually turn this blogging stuff into a way to earn a living someday! If you go to my blog at and click on my About page, it'll tell you a lot about me -- maybe more than you ever wanted to know. I'm just your average, laid-back guy who's GOING TO MAKE IT IN THIS WORLD, despite all the roadblocks thrown in the way. I also launched a "niche" blog on music at that I'm very excited about because of the popularity of music playlist articles here. Also, check out and "Like" this blog's Facebook page at for instant updates. Look forward to seeing y'all around!
