"Isn't Life Strange?" That is one of many simple yet provocative questions posed by various Moody Blues songs.

With unabashed earnestness, betraying their roots in 1960s youth culture, this British quintet pondered the riddles of existence with thought-provoking lyrics and bracing, adventurous music.

They became one of the world's most popular, beloved, and enduring bands. Their vast body of songs offered a counterpoint of hopefulness and idealism to the darker currents of a warring and polluted planet.
