Roger Hodgson, co-founder of Supertramp, wrote and composed this classic, The Logical Song, which is just as relevant today as it was when it was released. Probably most of us, if not all of us, can relate to the lyrics in one way or another. Questioning - wondering who we are.
"The Logical Song was born from my questions about what really matters in life. Throughout childhood we are taught all these ways to be and yet we are rarely told anything about our true self. We are taught how to function outwardly, but not guided to who we are inwardly. We go from the innocence and wonder of childhood to the confusion of adolescence that often ends in the cynicism and disillusionment of adulthood. In The Logical Song, the burning question that came down to its rawest place was "please tell me who I am," and that's basically what the song is about. I think this eternal question continues to hit such a deep chord in people around the world and why it stays so meaningful." ~ Roger Hodgson

Many people don't realize that the band had two songwriters and although Roger and Supertramp's other co-founder shared writing credit, they actually wrote and composed separately with each singing their own respective songs.

Here are some messages Roger has received from fans all over the world ~
"Never has a performer been so engaging as you were with the audience. Having heard the Logical Song at least a 1000 times since its release, I can honestly say that only on Friday after your heartfelt intro to the song did I actually "hear" the lyrics. You are a wonderfully inspiring, deeply spiritual person. I hope you continue to spread your uplifting, much needed positive energy, which this world desperately needs."
"Wow! What a fantastic night! What a guy. What songs. What warmth from Roger to the audience and the audience to Roger. What a feel-good night. I turned to look at the faces in the circle and above and EVERYONES faces were alight with enjoyment. Fantastic! Please do it again soon. Absolutely brilliant..."
"No other performer who comes even close in connecting with and pleasing the audience like he does. I have seen him several times and was truly amazed at the number of people who travelled long distances just for the shows."
