The Moody Blues

The Moody Blues was a rhythm and blues band formed in 1964 in England. Later, the band was known for its fusion of rock with classical music. An example of this fusion was with their hit song “Nights in White Satin.” The song was released in 1967 on the band’s Days of Future Passed album. The song was not an immediate hit, but is now a classic. The band moved to a synthesized pop style in the 1980s with The Other Side of Life. The release in 1971 provided the hit “I’m Just a Singer (In a Rock and Roll Band).” The band was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2018.
