Day 229: Crime of the Century, Supertramp
Time for another Supertramp song. A song with a moral twist in its tail
Now they’re planning the crime of the century, well what will it be ..
Who are these men of lust greed and glory, rip of the mask and let’s see,
but that’s not right look there’s you and there’s me.
The other really clever thing about this song is the way Supertramp manage to create the musical illusion of a constant descending musical scale that continue ad infinitum.
