Formed London, 1969; disbanded 1971; re-formed 1973;

Back in 1969 Richard Davies met Dutch millionaire Stanley
August Miesegaes (commonly known as Sam) in Munich whilst
playing in a band called The Joint. He offered to sponsor
Davies if he formed a new group and Davies duly put
together line-up (A) after advertising for players in a
rock music paper. The new group was originally going to be

from W.H. Davies' book, 'The Autobiography Of A More...

Timeless | Reviewer: Camille
    ------ About the song The Logical Song performed by Supertramp

This is one of my all time " happy songs" I love the message it is timeless, the world seem to pull us in one direction but the truth is to be yourself. Be yourself without shame or doubt! WHO KNOWS WHO'S LOGICAL?

Best song of all time | Reviewer: Madleader
    ------ About the song Just Another Nervous Wreck performed by Supertramp

Had this been released as a single, it would have been a huge hit, perhaps even the signature song for Supertramp. The lyrics, filled with a titillating rage, would resonate with the youth of today, would they be aware that such a gem exists.

Fantastic feel good song. | Reviewer: ANDY G

    ------ About the song The Logical Song performed by Supertramp

(sorry my writing's long ^//-//^)ok, i love this song! i actually belive everything it says is true. when i was young i thought everything was always 'happy', it was all ruined when i found out bad things about my family and my life. (it was all lies) as time passed i grew into my TRUE self and had a 'creative' style that almost no one in school understood. it took a while cause before i was not ME because i had 'problems' (ex:depression, bipolar, etc) and took pills to be what they wanted me to be like so i wasnt able to show them MY REAL logical expressive self. when i finally became myself they all thought i was a freak and all HATED my music and art (im hardcore ._.), but i simply fought it all and protested against all descrimination and was my self. i love their music and hope messages like this get out more. :)

Sometimes a song is just. . .a song | Reviewer: Dafixer
    ------ About the song Goodbye Stranger performed by Supertramp

I have always loved this album, the songs were - at the time it was about albums and cassettes - unique. As for all of this "deeper meaning of the deeper meaning" why does it matter? It's just a song, a well produced, well arranged, well sung song. Hookers? Weed? WTF? It's just a song. Jeez.

    ------ About the song Goodbye Stranger performed by Supertramp

Regardless of what anybody else says or writes, I still like all of Supertamp's music. If you can't handle the vocals, then try listening to opera, or some of that Motown b.s. from the '60s. Classic rock music, with all of its innovative forms, will still be listened to long after all the rappers have been discovered to be the misogynists that they are. Jimi Hendricks and Chuck Berry were on the right path. (Of course, someone will point out that 'Hey Joe' was not a song about a man who idolized his woman, but at least you could understand the lyrics enough to grasp his reasons.) All this stuff being produced today is about nothing but hate. It has no musical qualities at all. Tribal beats will go the way of Gregorian chants.

    ------ About the song Crime Of The Century performed by Supertramp

What is the "Crime of the Century"? Rick and Roger meant for it to be a wild card, anything goes, you name it. There have been lots of possibilities since then: Watergate, the dotcom boom & bust, September 11, the subprime mortgage crisis, Bernie Madoff, the BP oil spill, whatever. Who are these people of lust, greed & glory? You and me. We can do it. Anyone can do it if they put their evil minds to it.

I took it personal. | Reviewer: heartunes
    ------ About the song Fool's Overture performed by Supertramp

I thought the song was about the human condition, and it's struggle to stand up to what brings us down in life. I didn't know the Churchhill speech was even that at the beginning. I thought it was the "FOOL" bieng any human to me, talking to himself. It is an intimate song to me, and not of just one person. It is the "fool" being myself, and my will to carry on amongst the situations of life.

Don't be so deep.... | Reviewer: STTOS
    ------ About the song Goodbye Stranger performed by Supertramp

The song is simply about a guy who visits a couple of hookers and is saying bye the next morning. I've read where people thing that mary and jane refer to pot. Now while the name maryjane is a euphemism for pot, that is not what is meant. Since the song is about hookers, mary and jane are the fake names they would choose since they are so plain and simple. And before anyone says that hookers are usually named crystal or felicity or ambrosia, try coming up with a rhyme for those names and let me know how you do.

Why do people feel that all songs have to have such a deep meaning? The album Breakfast In America is about Supertramp's view of culture in the US and the song Goodbye Stranger is simply a song in line with this idea. The song is about a guy parting ways with a couple of hookers with whom he presumably spent the night and the girls are saying goodbye and wishing him well. Most men who visit hookers must have something missing in their life so the girls say they hope he finds his “paradise”, which shouldn’t be taken literally. Something that is paradise to one person can mean nothing to another. It can simply be whatever makes you happy. I've read where people thing that the girls’ names of Mary and Jane refer to pot, and while the name MaryJane is a euphemism for pot, that is not what is meant here. Since the song is about hookers, Mary and Jane are the false names girls who enter this profession might choose since the names are so plain and simple. And before anyone says that hookers are usually named Crystal or Felicity or Ambrosia, try coming up with a rhyme for those names and let me know how you do. It’s a simple fun song, just enjoy it and let’s not go looking for anything more.
