Album: Making Contact (1983)

Songfacts®:

  • "Blinded By A Lie" is the first track on the 1983 Making Contact album. Running to 3 minutes 58 seconds, it was co-written by lead vocalist Phil Mogg and keyboard man/guitarist Neil Carter. In March 2011, Neil confirmed to us that the song was a comment on the music business, adding: "…it does refer to a specific person and sequence of events but I can't name names! We had just got out of a situation and that was Phil venting his anger and frustration."

    He added it was similar in sentiment to Queen's "Death On Two Legs". >>
