This is free piano sheet music for Britney Spears, Dear Diary provided by www.sheetdownload.com. "Dear Diary" is a 1969 song by the progressive rock band The Moody Blues. Written by the band's flautist Ray Thomas, "Dear Diary" was first released on the 1969 album On the Threshold of a Dream. The lyrics of "Dear Diary" draw inspiration from the Eastern concept of Maya (illusion), and basically describe a man's alienation from the illusions of normal society. He sees people "rushing around so senselessly" and posits that "if they weren't so blind, then surely they'd see, there's a much better way for them to be. " In the bridge of the song, the narrator states: "They don't know what they're playing, They've no way of knowing what the game is, Still they carry on, doing what they can. " The song itself has a slow, ethereal sound to it, and Ray Thomas's lead vocal track is run through a Leslie speaker for an eerie effect. In a moment of humor typical of Thomas's writing, the song ends with the narrator having heard a news report of the testing of an H bomb. The narrator is glad that the bomb wasn't exploded by anyone he knew.
