So you think you're a Romeo
Playing a part in a picture show
Take the long way home
Take the long way home

'Cause you're the joke of the neighbourhood
Why should you care if you're feeling good?
Take the long way home
Take the long way home

But there are times that you feel you're part of the scenery
All the greenery is comin' down, boy
And then your wife seems to think you're part of the furniture
Oh, it's peculiar, she used to be so nice

When lonely days turn to lonely nights
You take a trip to the city lights
And take the long way home
Take the long way home

You never see what you want to see
Forever playing to the gallery
You take the long way home
Take the long way home

And when you're up on the stage, it's so unbelievable
Oh, unforgettable, how they adore you
But then your wife seems to think you're losing your sanity
Oh, calamity, is there no way out?
Oh, yeah

Ooh

Ooh, yeah

Does it feel that your life's become a catastrophe?
Oh, it has to be for you to grow, boy
When you look through the years and see what you could have been
Oh, what you might have been if you'd have had more time

So when the day comes to settle down
Who's to blame if you're not around?
You took the long way home
You took the long way home
You took the long way home (Ooh, yeah, yeah)
You took the long way home
You took the long way home (Oh, yeah)
You took the long way home
You took the long way home (Ooh, yeah)
You took the long way home

Ah ah ah ah
Ooh ooh ooh ooh
Ah ah ah ah
Long way home
Long way home
Long way home
Long way home
Long way home
Long way home
Long way home

Singularly great song with one of the best intros in music history.  The opening note held for such a long time followed by the opening chord creates such a sense of anticipation. It brings me back to when I was young teen listening to the radio.   This song (and Supertamp on general) has earned it’s place in music history.  10.

Rick's rather cynical Brit's opinion of the U.S. is evident in the the cover to this album ... a "welcome to America!" view as seen from the window of an airplane landing in NY.

Maybe it was just me but I could never tell if this was a man or a woman singing this song.
my freshman roommate tired a little of my playing this album of his over and over

Ouch!  I felt the sting too, just from reading your story... Funny how these things stay with you all these years...
This song represents a very specific time in my life that I remember quite fondly. Life was a little easier at 16 with a really good looking girlfriend, a job that paid pretty well, pretty cool parents, and a nice car.
My dog Freddy would howl every time the beginning of Take the Long Way Home played.  No other song than this. Freddy's been gone for 30 years.   Of course this was played often.
The lyrics and music are just about perfect as it gets.  What a great message.   This could be a perfect follow up to the song Hold Your Head Up  by Argent.  

Roger Hodgson wrote some of the best music, but his lyrics are just amazing at capturing the stress of life, and giving you hope to carry on.  Fool's Overture, Even in the Quietest Moments,  School, Logical Song....and many more.  All have an important message of hope for those who are really down in the depths of frustration/depression/confusion. 
Many years ago when this was in the top 40 I worked an overnight shift at a radio station, playin' the platters that matter on real turntables. Sometimes a good friend would come and keep me company for awhile - she'd often stay around until the wee hours. I would almost always play this for her after she was in her car and headed home. Can't say i loved this song but thinking of her and playing this for her always makes me smile
This song takes presents a very different set of emtions listening to it in my 50s than it did when I listened to it in my teens.
40 years ago, I bought a Harmonica just so I could play along with this.  Still the only song I learned the whole  way through.

It was about 17 years ago that she had me listen to Crime of the Century in full...and well it's a freaking AWESOME album.  Breakfast in America has a few good tunes, of course the classic rock FM staples (like this one) and the title track (one of those songs that often is misnamed, like Baba O'Riley or Another Brick in the Wall II) and while this is my fav ST song, CotC is in my 10 top albums list.  

With all that said, I'd LOVE to hear my wife's fav track off CotC; Hide in Your Shell.  If it's not in the RP library, I'll submit it and hope it isn't rejected like the last few.  LONG LIVE RP!!


 
Hide in Your Shell should absolutely be in the RP mix - shocked it's not - Bil??
The older I get, the more I appreciate this band . 
If you ever played ANY instrument
-- you recognize the musicianship and the songwriting levels here.  
I always liked this tune ...
  and I never worry about what anyone else thinks of my opinion . 
Life is too short to spend justifying myself ...

I saw this album's show here in Montreal in the summer of 1978 at Jarry Park, the same location where the Expos (now Washningon Nationals) used to play (saw them too :-). I remember it vividly.

I good fiend of mine and her husband have been lifelong fans. They attented so many shows that they became friends with Roger and are now opening all the local shows. Pretty coold!

From the start of their fame, but not the very start. My sister likes to recall seeing them in Toronto in a bar, with about 30 others there. Virtual unknowns, but not for long.

40 years ago. wow. just wow.
Way too poppy, as ST had started to migrate to in their previous collection, Even In The Quietest Moments (which, to me, is far superior to Breakfast and an overall solid recording).  Only song worth listening to from Breakfast, from a long time ST fan's perspective, is Child of Vision which was more like Crime of the Century (an absolutely great collection of tunes).

even the album cover was silly.
Ah yes, seeing the Breakfast in America Tour back in the day was an amazing experience. Great band.

I can't ever get bored of Supertramp. One of the most varied and versatile bands ever. This is a classic - particular the clarinet vs harmonica break in the middle. Awesome.

I know that there are Supertramp fanatics, but this is about the only song of theirs I could stand. Unfortunately, it got overplayed and I still can't listen to it 'til the end.

Au contraire! Certainly not one of the my favorite bands being Dead/Dylan/Band/Who/Airplane/Zeppelin/Tull.... focused. Still, this is an energetic, spirit lifting tune that got my attention then and great to hear it now.{#Daisy} 
I saw Mr Hodgson sing this at the Royal Albert Hall last Friday evening and it sounds even better live.

The intervening years have mellowed the voice slightly and the band that he now plays with are excellent.

ICK!!
Personally I like this album and where it fits in the time frame of my youth. 

For those who think it was played to often consider this:

Radio DJ's were the catalyst for how OCD began....

Caller requests Take the Long way home
DJ Plays said request
Another Caller requests Take the Long way home
Another DJ plays said request
repeat Ad infinitum for a year or two and Bam  - Clear Channel gets the idea that if a song is popular just play it every few hours to keep all callers happy and before you know it if a listener doesn't call in to request another artist or song then by golly it must be OK to keep the ones we have in heavy rotation as our listeners are happy and calm and our advertisers are spending loads of $$$ so it must be good.  After all people like what they like and if one channel isn't playing it then I'll surf to another till I find it in their rotation.  Fast Forward to ITunes and it might be interesting to look at the percentage of a song such as Take the Long way home from this era and compare how many of us old geezers downloaded it again as an MP3 so we could play it whenever we wanted to go back in time on that long road to our mis spent youth.

When I finished writing this I came back to RP and a little gem of a song  by Heart called Barracuda -  ever heard of it?  ;-) 

Burn it to the wick Barracuuuuuda.......

True Story


Thanks again Mr. Goldsmith for an excellent set.
Many times when Bill pulls out an old overplayed song I don't mind.  Hearing one in this context often causes me to give the song a fresh listen.  Most of the Fleetwood Mac Rumors songs occasionally played hear are a good example.

Not working with this song I'm afraid.  Wouldn't mind hearing "Even in the Quietest Moments" though.

Funny, I was "sick of this song" the first time I heard it, 35+ years ago, and I heard this song incessantly back then.   I was specifically annoyed by its cloying, elf-like vocals and nursery rhyme melody, at a time when I was listening to sounds very different from this.  Still, I knew a lot of folks who liked it then and can see why people still like it - I guess it's a good song, just not for me.  Different strokes...Rock on, castrati!

I agree, it has stood the test of time.   The "test of time" is one of those objective measures that impresses a lot of people as being something like a conclusive measure.   It's not, really.  A lot of crap (IMHO) withstands the test of time, so I am always quite wary of this measure.  But I agree this is a great song from a great band.  I should also mention that many great songs are forgotten quite soon.

When something makes it big and inspires many imitators, writers call it "commercial".  If this had been obscure, then it would be called "overlooked talent" or something similar.
Kaboom! Back in high school making out with a girl listening to this song. It stands the test of time. Not sure about the girl and myself for that matter {#Angel}
I saw Supertramp Live on 80s in Portugal Cascais. Fantastic Show!

I can't really figure a way to politely comment. This is an example of why an awful lot of '80s music really sucked. OK, so it was the end of the '70s, but still.
"Paris" just came out on Blu-Ray.
It's an awesome LIVE show from 1979.

Great song....There is an act out now called "Fun."  that has a radio hit called Carry On that sounds a lot like Supertramp.   What I find striking about radio today is how few good songs are making it as hits.  This song by ST was a mega hit.  I remember it well.  I don't think we really have this kind of talent brewing today going for making hits...the really talented ones are all doing experimental stuff....for some reason, the most talented rock stars no longer want to do this kind of thing...
Douglas Quaid's robot disguise head in Total Recall is surely the same actress as the waitress on the (brilliant) album cover.

A special place in my heart...steep river canyon, moose country, the wild north...I will visit again someday...
Never liked it much the first time around. {#Eh}
Reminded of how good Supertramp sound.
I saw playing Roger Hodgson a few years ago in Montreal. Amazing concert! Just him and a saxophone guy. He's ageing so gracefully...and his voice is so beautiful, crystal clear, I'd say better than before :)
Thank you for playing this Band !!!
Ahhhh.....  I never really got into Supertramp EXCEPT for this album!  Logical Song is my favorite, and this one a close 2nd — though I also still enjoy listening to the whole thing, beginning to end.  Just like we did at the slumber party back in the day.  Good times

Someone might have uploaded the version from a greatest hits CD or something. I bought a Cult greatest hits collection off iTunes once without apparently giving it due care and attention, and a bunch of the songs were radio edits.

A song like this would get added pretty quickly in LRC, perhaps before anyone realized it wasn't the full song.

Thanks for fixing it. Now if only I could get the version of Edie (Ciao Baby) that includes the last line of the song in my library.

A High School era song for me, too. I think the only Supertramp I ever bought was a 45 RPM (single) of "The Logical Song." About a year ago I was at a dinner party and suddenly Breakfast in America started being played. I don't know what happened, but suddenly all I could do was focus on that CD and nothing else. It brought back a tidal wave of memories. I actually had to stop at a 24 hour Walmart on the way home and buy the CD. Haven't listened to it since. But it was really amazing that hearing this CD for the first time in years brought back so many memories. The power of music over our psych never ceases to amaze me.

Overplayed elsewhere. Twee, Crass use of saxophone. Cliched lyrics. Bad late-70s production. The epitome of smug. All of the aforementioned, and possibly multiplied.

Yet it is still a great song.

Odd, no?

I was in 7th or 8th grade when this album came out.  I hung out with a couple of neighbor kids that were a few years older than me - old enough to have driver's licenses and their own cars.  This was one of the albums they had (on cassette, of course).  The other albums I remember were Bat Out of Hell, and something from the Cars.  Brings back great memories of driving around with them, thinking I was so cool for hanging out with high school guys.  This song, along with most of this album, still holds up well, IMO.

Not a Supertramp fan. Sorry.

Very funny, RP
I still have good memories of this album during my senior year of high school (sigh, so long ago). I'll admit that I sure heard this one enough on the radio, and would really jump at the chance to hear 'Rudy' on RP.
Nice segue Bill. Looks like this is not exactly played very often. Hope it gets back into the rotation!

Roger Hogdson by ~Rock-Spirit
Elke  ©2008-2010 ~Rock-Spirit

Roger Hogdson (yep, the guy of Supertramp) live at the Arrow Rock Festival. He wasn't with a big band, but still amazing...:)


perfect headphone band, indeed. ie, if I'm not in the mood for 'em, let those that are, put on their headphones. and once in a blue moon I'll join them.
Yes, great! :music: :clap: :sunny.gif: :clap: :music:
I agree that these guys were good musicans, however, I'd like to hear something that got less MOR airplay. It would be nice to hear some of their lesser known tunes, so that we could enjoy their talents without having to cringe at hearing the same old same old.
Cant work listening to this. Put the amplifier at max. Cant help shouting it -what you should have been----
Back in the day, during college years, I really got into this band. Not having heard them in a while, I think quite a few of the songs, this one included, hold up pretty well. This particular album and Crisis/What Crisis from a few years earlier were probably their best work. If you like this sort of thing, Roger Hodgson made a couple of excellent solo records in the mid 80s after the band called it quits. Occasional Supertramp on RP is not a bad thing.
I don't usually dis songs, after all, to each his own, and all that. But, boy oh boy do I hate Supertramp. :-(

I tend to be the one here to talk about musicianship and production values, and this song has those, but I'm afraid the first thing that comes to mind when this song comes on is when I was a year out of high school and at the end of the school day, I would pick up my girlfriend (eventually, fiancee - we were together 5 years - and still are communicating as friends after 26 years), and take her home ... the long way ... hearing this song on the radio...

Just because you "don't get Supertramp" that doesn't make them lame. Perhaps your inability to "get" Supertramp is what is lame! :nyah:
