A song across six decades that links the Moody Blues, the Four Tops and Billy Ocean

Billy Ocean has this year released a very strong version of “A Simple Game”.

This great song originates as a Moody Blues 1968 track, written and sung by Mike Pinder.

My favourite version is from the Four Tops from 1972. It is one of my Top 20 favourite songs. I think it is the Four Tops’ best track. Really exceptional.

Here are all three versions for you to compare:
