    “Moonchild is probably the least interesting song on the album”
    Uhm. I always thought all the songs in this album were equally good. But may be you are right.

    Turns out, “Moonchild” has evolved to be much more than “the least interesting song on the album”. How so?

    First off, Lake’s vocal tempo notably moves through the lyrics in an unpredictable fashion. This in itself is “interesting” to me. Try singing through this song in a karaoke mode. I’m guessing your timing and inflection will be quite off the first few times through.

    Secondly, this song subsequently inspired a number very creative and “interesting” animations and covers. These will range from cutesy to spiritual. Most likely, you will settle on a couple of favorites and play them over and over in the wee hours. Check them out on YouTube.

    Finally, this song was “interesting” enough to make the soundtrack cut for the quirky and captivating 1998 “Buffalo ’66”. Christina Ricchi’s tap dance routine to “Moonchild” in a bowling alley needs to be seen to be appreciated.

    All in all, not bad for a song critics of the day were less than complimentary about; and one King Crimson never performed in concert until 50 years later.
