    sometimes you just gotta take the scenic route to nirvana to realize that you were already there

    Probably my favourite by them....that harmonica is so sad & bittersweet...reminds me of a Freaks & Geeks episode & watching it with my dear departed son, Vincent over 4 years ago...

    I agree with Rodger...nothing like being a superhero.

    At the press meeting when Breakfast In America was presented, Roger Hodgson explained that this song is about a guy who thinks he's really cool ("So you think you're a Romeo playing a part in a picture-show"), but it seems that he's the only one who thinks that. This implies that our hero avoids getting home because when he's on the road he has a few more moments of being alone with his dreams, and in his dreams he's a superstar. http://www.songfacts.com/detail.php?id=6481
