659 ( Jethro Tull - Wond'ring Again )
For some odd reason I felt like choosing one of the most depressing 'Tull songs today; for the last week off and on the song was going through my mind. The music to this song is just beautiful and upbeat, which contrasts greatly with the subject matter, but at the same time works perfectly. About half way through the song the melody from the more popular 'Tull song: Wond'ring Aloud, which can be found here on YouTube, which comes from the Aqualung album is featured. Actually, from what I understand, you have a "chicken and the egg" situation here, Wond'ring Again was written first and Wond'ring Aloud was derived from this rarer track.
Here is the studio version on YouTube.
