Life Options for Boys: The Logical Song
With the emphasis, even in childhood, for boys to "be men," Life Options for boys can be severely limited. Their magic, their zest for life, their belief that "they can be anything they want to be" can take a serious hit. The Logical Song laments the problem.
This video takes a transformative, gender-informed, boy-focused look at Roger Hodgson’s words in “The Logical Song,” which won the award for best lyrics from the British Academy of Composers and Songwriters in 1979.
