"Fools Overture" is the closing track from Supertramp's 1977 album Even in the Quietest Moments. Written and song by guitarist, keyboard player, singer and songwriter Roger Hodgson, the song tells about World War II England and the lessons learned from it. The song, which is over 10 minutes long, is a collage of progressive instrumentation and sound samples. First there are excerpts of Winston Churchill's famous June 4, 1940 House of Commons speech regarding England's involvement in World War II ("Never Surrender"), and later sounds of police cars and church bells are heard. The flageolet-sounding instrument plays an excerpt from Gustav Holst's "Venus", from his orchestral suite The Planets. There is also a reading of the first verse of William Blake's poem "And did those feet in ancient time" (more commonly known as "Jerusalem"), ended by a very short sample of the band's song "Dreamer".

Its writing credits are given to Rick Davies and Roger Hodgson,Although Roger and Rick shared joint writer credit throughout their years together with Supertramp, they actually wrote separately. It is easy to tell the composer of the songs as Roger sings all the songs he wrote, and Rick sings the songs he wrote. You can see the song list at http://www.rogerhodgson.com/documents...

Fools Overture is from the Even in the Quietest Moments and also on the Paris Live album. You can only hear this live at Roger Hodgson concerts, Supertramp no longer plays it when they go out on tour.
