"Living in the Past" is a song by British progressive rock group Jethro Tull. It is one of its best-known songs, and it is notable for being written in the unusual 5/4 time signature. The 5/4 signature is quickly noted from the beginning rhythmic bass pattern.
The single reached number 3 on the UK Singles Chart.
The song was originally recorded before the sessions for the 1969 album "Stand Up", released in the same year as a stand-alone single to UK audiences while Jethro Tull finished its US tour. However, it became more popular after its 1972 release on the album of the same name, a compilation of the band's hits from that era. After its release on the album, it became the band's first Top 20 hit in the US, peaking at #11.
