This heavily orchestrated song about an eagle was, surprisingly, inspired by a seagull, but not any seagull. The book Jonathan Livingston Seagull has been called the greatest inspirational novel of our times.
George from Vancouver, CanadaThe beauty is that it's left to all of us to interpret it within our own frameworks of understanding. A beautiful song -- I myself don't try to derive a meaning -- it's just a super beautiful harmony of voice & instruments. Always lifts me up, to listen to the extended version. I'm inclined to agree with Mark from London that it's a love song -- I can feel the love while listening.
Mark from LondonIt is simply a love song. It speaks of an intimate connection to someone and how it makes them feel. The give-away lyric is "As all good friends we talk all night, and we fly wing to wing".
Tc from UkNo idea what this song is about! Aliens? But I think I want it played at my funeral. I see it as flying through the sky. Beautiful.
Crüe from Chelmsford, United KingdomInitially I thought it was about the bird but the more I hear it the more I consider it is about beings from another planet. Regardless...this song made my dad cry. I was considering having it as my funeral song. Beautiful.
Graham from St.helens, United KingdomThis must be one of ABBA's most under-rated songs, soaring harmonies, great guitar, leaves me relaxed and uplifted every time I hear it.
Jarod from Perth, AustraliaWhenever i heard this song, i always thought it was about a native to an un-industrialized nation that hears about stories from their colonizers about "Eagles" (aeroplanes), and dreams of flying around the world, just like they say.
"They speak strangely but i understand them" "they came flying from far away"
The Four Tops' "I Can't Help Myself (Sugar Pie Honey Bunch)" was written by the Motown team of Lamont Dozier, Brian Holland and Eddie Holland. The phrase "Sugar pie, honey bunch" was something Dozier's grandfather used to say when he was a kid.
