I CAN SEE CLEARLY NOW

David McMahon on http://david-mcmahon.blogspot.com/ has asked the question "Which song brings you the best memories?" It has to be "I can see clearly now the rain has gone" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k3KwpJUrgN4. My first marriage had broken up and life was pretty bad and then I me OG. The song seemed to say everything that I felt at the time.

You old softy, you!

For Yvonne and me it was "There's a Place Somewhere" from West Side Story which must have been newish when we met. I believe lots of other people feel the same about the song.

Mae said...

I like that song too.

Love that song RAC - as for my choice it would have to be Elvis singing Wooden Heart. Although Bob and I are in our 60's we have only been together 20 years and one evening on our honeymoon as we sat on a balcony we heard it playing. Back at home he played it to me on his harmonica. Ahh! Ain't love grand. A x

For me, it would be anything from the 'Desperado' or 'On The Border' albums from The Eagles. Other Half and I did a fair bit of travelling both before we married and just afterwards, and we had a little old Morris Minor with no radio or music player, but we used to take a portable tape deck and rest it on the back seat. Those two albums are the ones we played most often.

Oh, and 'You Never Cry Like a Lover' was the first song I ever heard through stereo headphones, and it was OH who put those on my head and played that to me, just before we married.

Little Donkey - Jean you got to be kidding!

The lyrics speak to us all, though. Thank you for taking part.

I love the words David, and they said so much to me at that time.

Ohhh that hurts RAC- remember it was between age 1-10 - 'bout 5 I think - got it for Christmas and wore the record out before New Year!!! Still brings tears when I hear it though!!!!!

I am sorry for being so insensitive Jean, of course you love the song!
