Welcome to the Grand illusion Come on in and see what's happening Pay the price, get your tickets for the show The stage is set, the band starts playing Suddenly your heart is pounding Wishing secretly you were a star
But don't be fooled by the radio The TV or the magazines They show you photographs of how your life should be But they're just someone else's fantasy
So if you think your life is complete confusion Because you never win the game Just remember that it's a grand illusion And deep inside we're all the same We're all the same
So if you think your life is complete confusion Because your neighbors got it made Just remember that it's a grand illusion And deep inside we're all the same
America spells competition, join us in our blind ambition Get yourself a brand new motor car Someday soon we'll stop to ponder what on earth's this spell we're under We made the grade and still we wonder who the hell we are

Stukka63 from St.augustine,fla.Just my opinion. Styx is a really kick ass band. Amazing talent. But for whatever reason, they were considered light weight. Kinda like no one took them serious.
Stukka63 from St.augustine,fla.@sam the worst luck this band encountered was losing Dennis DeYoung. It’s just a fact. Who would want to see an Aerosmith show without Steven Tyler?
Justin from Durango, Cothanks sam for bringing up the bad luck they had in later years. seriously I was at the concert in Mancos, Co where a random gust of wind from a summer thunderstorm blew over the roof on the stage they were playing on injuring a couple band members
Kent from Fort Wayne, InDue to the ipod generation, my daughter,13, discovered styx on mine. She loves most of the same songs I do. I plan to take her to a concert if they get to this area again. I missed them when they were at Ball St.
Sam from Hipsville, CaWas checking out artistfacts on the band------didn't know in later years all the bad luck they encountered. That's really a shame.
Cody from Janesville , WiMy uncle got me into styx, loved em ever since, saw them live when i was seven, then 10 years later at seventeen, great live show
Don from San Antonio, TxWow that's cool about the letter, Eddie! I went next door to my neighbor's house who had a killer stereo and he played me this title track and I was BLOWN AWAY! I was just a kid so it had MAJOR impact.
Mara from Coruscant, Englandstyx is so cool!
Eddie from Acton, Me When I was 9 years old, I looked at the back of "The Grand Illusion" album, and found an address to which I could write Styx, which I promptly did. It wasn't the first time I had written to a band, but it was the first time I got an actual written reply. It was obviously not a form letter, because various questions I had asked in my letter (including when were they releasing a live album) were answeed.
The TV show Cheers was nearly canceled after its first season, but the theme song, "Where Everybody Knows Your Name," was very popular. To satisfy viewer demand, the theme was made into a full song and released as a single.
