Biography
Supertramp is an English progressive rock band that had a series of top-selling albums in the 1970s. Despite chart success the band never attained stardom, it was remarked at the height of their popularity that Supertramp was the best-selling group in the world whose members could walk down any street and not be recognised. Their early music included ambitious concept albums, but they are best known for their later, somewhat Beatlesque pop songs including "Dreamer", "Goodbye Stranger", "Give A Little Bit", and "The Logical Song".

The name was taken from W. H. Davies' 1908 novel The Autobiography of a Super-Tramp.

@ album: Supertramp - Breakfast In America [1979]

Breakfast in America, the sixth album, was The Big One for the group, a #1 smash on the album charts all over the world. Though certainly not a "concept" album, the theme for "Breakfast In America" came from bandleaders Roger Hodgson & Rick Davies, who, for this album, wanted to write songs about what it was like to be a British person living in the USA, which is what the whole band were doing by this time.

Credit Hodgson & Davies for writing such wonderful songs, such as the hits "The Logical Song," "Goodbye Stranger," and "Take The Long Way Home." But even the non-hits are shimmering beauties, such as "Gone Hollywood," "Oh Darling" (not to be confused with the Beatles tune), "Lord Is It Mine," and the exuberant finale, "Child Of Vision," all played to perfection by Hodgson, Davies (who both do great vocal work as well), sax player John Halliwell, bassist Dougie Thomson, and drummer Bob Siebenberg.

I've never thought this is an old song -- I only heard it in part sung in that Gym Class Heroes song.. So you can just imagine how low my jaw dropped seeing how vintage this song is I like it!

Brilliant song! I like it more because of the face that it was sampled in Gym Class Hero's "Cupid's Chokehold", but I find it interesting to hear both the old and new and see how the song has evolved/

Great song, though, because of it's truth, just a little bit sad when you think

about it.

@ song: Supertramp - Take The Long Way Home

TommyBoy6489...well,don't sweat it; I've listened to it,and, liked it for over 25
years, and, can't say I know for sure either.
I imagine it could be about maturing - like growing up, and life kinda goes by
just a little too fast to accomplish what would've brought us real contentment, instead, it seems the constant highs followed by lows(like a merry-go-round) just leave us feeling unemotional/apathetic so maybe by our looking back we "TTLWH"[similar to going around the block again wondering ? should you really never "see" your girlfriend/boyfriend again].

I don't know either , I TRIED . It does have a catchy tune though!

I love this song Goo Goo Dolls did a pretty good job on covering this song. Love the original though!
