Musicology Anthology  (13+)
An annual challenge to write a collection of short fiction based on a musical album.
#1377819 by Jeff


I was raised on mostly classical music. I was also a teenager when this album came out. I'm an HSP (highly sensitive person) and respond when emotions are evoked. This was an evocative mix of narration, rock and classical orchestration. "Tuesday" has always been my favorite piece.

From internet:

The Second album by the Moody Blues (1967), and their first concept album; actually, one of the first concept rock albums ever.

It starts at pre-dawn with the orchestrated and narrated ‘overture’ The Day Begins through the lyrical Dawn is a Feeling, to the faster Another morning and the “rocky” lunch’s Peak Hour, slowing down with Tuesday afternoon and Evening Time to Get Away, switching to the heavier rhythm at The Sunset, and through Twilight Time to the most famous track – Nights in White Satin.

Described as –
one of the first pieces of heavily orchestrated, album-length psychedelic rock to come out of England
