I would say that the Moody Bluesmight even have a Christian influence. A lot of what they sing about can be found in the Bible. Some examples: The album Keys of the Kingdom,- Matthew 16:9. From the song Question My mind becomes confused Between the dead and the sleeping – Matthew 9:23-26.
Do the Moody Blues have any songs about Jesus?

How did the Moody Blues get their name?
When the group outgrew pub dates, they changed the name to The Moody Blues, moody because that was their image (dark clothing, never smiling), and blues because that was their style of music. Both the moody and blues monikers became irrelevant once they released their 1967 Days of Future Passed album, but they were stuck with the name.
Are the Moody Blues into Transcendental Meditation?
The only thing you might want to look into is The Moody Blues were heavy into Transcendental Meditation (TM). You will find hints to this on their In search of the lost chord (edited in….ant To Our Children’s Children’s Children) album and others, although I cant recall any at the moment.
Why did the Moody Blues use a Mellotron?
The Moody Blues were the only band to regularly use a Mellotron (an early sort of synthesizer that used tape loops instead of electronic tone generators) in concerts. They could do this because Mike Pinder had worked for the company that had invented it, and he knew its workings so well.

Unequivocally, I believe Jesus said it both ways. Check out Mark IX.40

I don’t see a problem with their music. I enjoy it and I prefer not to look to far into it.

What is astral travel?
Astral travel, or astral projection, or out of body experience, was a conversational goldmine in the late 1960s. Those who were not yet initiated into the occult secrets coming to the surface of the era were enthralled by the possibilities eastern spiritualism promised. “Rock stars, is there nothing they don’t know,” Homer Simpson once asked, as even mundane nuclear factory workers could be moved to “ride the waves” when “distance is gone.” It is natural. Bees do it. Birds do it, according to the book Jonathan Livingston Seagull by Richard Bach, whose heroic feathered friend took a nose dive into the afterlife to bring his flock to the heavens.
Who played with John Lodge in Wings?
Bassist John Lodge, guitarist Justin Hayward, and drummer Graeme Edge, never stopped searching, touring consistently. Founding member and flutist Ray Thomas left the lineup in 2002 and died on January 4, 2018 at the age of 76. Pinder, the keyboardist, left in 1978, replaced by Patrick Moraz but that story is a legal morass best left in the footnotes of music history. The band replaced founding member Denny Laine, whose name rhymes with “Penny Lane,” which might explain why Paul McCartney pulled him into Wings, with Hayward and Lodge. Lodge played with Pinder and Thomas in a band called El Riot and the Rebels that broke up in 1963. They played Hamburg, Germany, at the same time as The Beatles.

Did the Moody Blues use LSD?
A lot of people in the late ’60s were in search of enlightenment, but this is no New Age band, as they have often been labeled. The Moody Blues also explored LSD. Yes, for fun, but also to a spiritual end. Like John Lennon, who used Timothy Leary’s interpretation of the Tibetan Book of the Dead to write “Tomorrow Never Knows,” the Moodies, as some fans but not this one call them, took acid and discovered Timothy Leary was dead in Ray Thomas’ 1968 song “Legend of a Mind,” only to learn he was outside looking in. Justin Hayward threw in some C.S Lewis and Christian mysticism, but extolled the spiritual benefits of LSD with his friend until Leary died. Hayward’s “Gypsy” and the Pinder/Lodge collaboration “Out and In” also translated the acid experience into melodious sonic stereo. Although Hayward’s “Dawn is a Feeling” eschewed chemical balance because “the smell of grass just makes you pass into a dream.”
Did the band know all the answers to House of Four Doors?
The band never really claimed to know all the answers, John Lodge pleaded with fans that if they knew anything to “please tell me.” He walked through the “House of Four Doors” and conceded perhaps the answers are here and not there anymore. Hayward made his fingers bleed going between the aforementioned C diminished to G suspended seventh chords to beg why “we never get the answers to the questions that we need.”
