    This song ranks 48th among listened-to songs on Lastfm. That's a shame -- it's easily one of their best.

    I love the Moody Blues. I have loved them since way back in my teens in the 70's. I could listen to them day and night. So great.

    Hauntingly beautiful and introspective. Hope they play this one when they come to Albuquerque.

    Lovely to hear from you.........I wonder why this track is entitled The Actor..... Actors are usually pretending to be somebody else.....Whos "The Great Pretender" this case.....? Darling your almost part of me,certainly sticks in my mind.......

    when i would lip-sync this song in my youth, pretending to be one of the band, i would always start to tear up at the end wailing. that's how you have to sing this song
