FlinterFile: The Move- Blackberry Way

the-move-blackberry-way-1968-8

In 1968, The Move released Blackberry Way. Though this was the time of the British invasion in America, the Move have actually never had success in America. This song was influenced by Penny Lane, but its lyrics are darker, and the mood is more melancholic. The bridge in the song was very much inspired by the intro of a song by Harry Nilsson, Good Old Desk. At the time of this song, Roy Wood was the frontman, and Richard Tandy and Trevor Burton played on the song, too. Trever left soon after the song, and Jeff Lynne would soon join, causing (you could guess it) that the Move stopped in 1972 and went on with the name Electric Light Orchestra. The song would end up in the UK chart at number 1. Enjoy
