"Old and Wise" is a 1982 song by the Alan Parsons Project from the album Eye in the Sky.

The song reached number 21 on the U.S. Billboard AC chart[citation needed] in early 1983 and number 74 in the United Kingdom; the first of the band's singles to chart in that country.[1]

Lead vocal[edit]

The lead vocal on "Old and Wise" was performed by former Zombies vocalist Colin Blunstone.[2] Blunstone made several appearances on Alan Parsons Project albums, but "Old and Wise" was the only single with Blunstone as lead singer to gain airplay. Blunstone later re-recorded the song for his own two-disc Best Of album, titled Old and Wise, released in 2003.[3]
