Uriah Heep - "Sympathy" (TopPop 1977)

Sympathy just doesn't mean that much to me
Compassion's not the fashion in my mind
And if you're looking for a shoulder to cry on
Don't turn your head my way
'Cause I'd rather have my music any day
Oh, yeah!

You and I are masters of our destiny
We look for consolation all the time
Until we find out things
Are not what they were meant to be, oh no
And if it doesn't suit our mood we'll call it crime
Oh!

Dedication's not an obligation
Or a figment of someone's imagination
It's the only way they say
To live from day to day
To make each passing way a small sensation

Dreams are the possession of the simple man
Reality the fantasy of youth
But living is a problem that is common to us all
With love the only common road to truth
Yeah!

Dedication's not an obligation
Or a figment of someone's imagination
It's the only way they say
To live from day to day
To make each passing way a small sensation
Oh, yeah

Dedication's not an obligation
Or a figment of someone's imagination
It's the only way they say
To live from day to day
To make each passing way a small sensation

Αλήθεια χρειάζεται εισαγωγικό κείμενο και πρόλογος για ένα από τα ωραιότερα (και πλέον αναγνωρίσιμα) hard & heavy τραγούδια της δεκαετίας του εβδομήντα; "Sympathy" από τους (θεούς) Uriah Heep από την Ολλανδική τηλεοπτική εκπομπή TopPop. Η φιλμογράφηση έγινε το μακρινό 1977. Το τραγούδι το πρωτογνωρίσαμε στον δίσκο των Heep "Firefly" (ήταν ο πρώτος τους δίσκος χωρίς τον David Byron), ενώ κυκλοφόρησε και αυτόνομα, ως single...
