The second song in their hit album “Breakfast in America”, The Logical Song is a sharp and effective criticism of the way we perceive education and knowledge. Specifically, its legitimacy in a “PC” culture. Just as Pink Floyd did in “Another Brick in the Wall Pt.2”, Supertramp urges us to shun societal standards and value our thoughts and intelligence based on our own system of morals. The theme of being eccentric and unique is conveyed through the effective use of a Staccato saxophone solo which ends the song. An extremely powerful song, its lyrics hold true even today, 40 years after its 1979 release.
