Music Video Of The Day: More Than A Feeling by Boston (1977, directed by ????)


An instant hit when it was first released in 1976, More Than A Feeling was a song that spent several years in the making.  The founder of Boston, MIT graduate Tom Scholz, spent five years working on the song, recording and re-recording it in his basement while working his day job at Polaroid.

When Boston finally signed with CBS Records, More Than A Feeling was the first single released off of their debut album and it has since remained a classic rock mainstay, with the chorus riff becoming one of the most familiar sounds in the history of rock.  Scholz has said that he was inspired to write More Than A Feeling by the Left Bank’s song, Walk Away Renée.  “I see my Marianne walk away” was a reference to an older cousin whom Tom Scholz had a crush on when he was nine years old.

For me, though, More Than A Feeling will always be the song that I used to listen to whenever I was driving a stolen car around San Andreas, looking for hot coffee and trying to avoid the police.
