Possibly , but it could be that some Supertramp listening, hashish and opium smoking,  twisted and deranged individuals came up with the idea while gazing at the album cover...

So if you reverse the image like in a mirror the twin towers have the two letters  U & P from 'Supertramp' at the top of each tower, now 9 & 11 if you follow me.

Then there's the grinning hostess holding up a glass of orange juice at the approximate point where the planes are alleged to have impacted the buildings & your witnessing all this from the window seat of a commercial passenger plane, very surreal.

There are more clues on the other side of the album cover but i forget now...& all this from an album released in 1979

Just though id mention that...{#Curtain}

I know nobody cares and I'll still comment...because I really dig this song.  My wife (friend at the time) turned me into a fan, and we've seen ST in concert once (Rick doesn't like playing in the states, so we caught them in Kelowna BC; Superb!) and we've seen Roger 3 times (once in the 3rd row and we got a set list which was cool) with hopes of seeing him again soon.

It was about 17 years ago that she had me listen to Crime of the Century in full...and well it's a freaking AWESOME album.  Breakfast in America has a few good tunes, of course the classic rock FM staples (like this one) and the title track (one of those songs that often is misnamed, like Baba O'Riley or Another Brick in the Wall II) and while this is my fav ST song, CotC is in my 10 top albums list.  

With all that said, I'd LOVE to hear my wife's fav track off CotC; Hide in Your Shell.  If it's not in the RP library, I'll submit it and hope it isn't rejected like the last few.  LONG LIVE RP!!

Or, alternatively, don't turn on a Classic Rock radio station tomorrow and enjoy the old classics when they come on more infrequently elsewhere (like here).

I fully agree Lazarus its simply Timeless I enjoy them now as much as I did all those years ago. And 7:4 on the Richter scale is a very good score here on RP which goes to show there are more positive listeners than negative.
 
Everybody in my hotel room loves this classic song, and this great album that withstands the test of time...  love Radio Paradise...  hope life if grand for you Toke...

Amazing how how indifferent I was to bands like Supertramp and ELO back in the day. I love them now.

I can't ever get bored of Supertramp. One of the most varied and versatile bands ever. This is a classic - particular the clarinet vs harmonica break in the middle. Awesome.

Many times when Bill pulls out an old overplayed song I don't mind.  Hearing one in this context often causes me to give the song a fresh listen.  Most of the Fleetwood Mac Rumors songs occasionally played hear are a good example.

Not working with this song I'm afraid.  Wouldn't mind hearing "Even in the Quietest Moments" though.

 
I know that there are Supertramp fanatics, but this is about the only song of theirs I could stand. Unfortunately, it got overplayed and I still can't listen to it 'til the end.

Au contraire! Certainly not one of the my favorite bands being Dead/Dylan/Band/Who/Airplane/Zeppelin/Tull.... focused. Still, this is an energetic, spirit lifting tune that got my attention then and great to hear it now.{#Daisy}

I saw Mr Hodgson sing this at the Royal Albert Hall last Friday evening and it sounds even better live.

The intervening years have mellowed the voice slightly and the band that he now plays with are excellent.
