Visions

Feb 08 2008

Cliff Richard in 1964

I decided to record an oldie tonight by Cliff Richard, one of my dad’s favorite singers. He was England’s answer to America’s Elvis Presley in the 50s. Born to Anglo-Indian Parents in Lucknow, India in 1940, he is one of my favorite singers too. I dedicate this song to my dear Father .

Here is the link to the MP3.

Visions of you in shades of blue
Smoking, shifting, lazily drifting
My darling, I miss you so
Time goes by, no wonder my
Senses go reeling, your eyes so appealing
I see the whole night through

When will we meet again, when when when
When will we meet again, when when when

I remember the days, beautiful days,
Tenderly gleaming, my whole life seeming
To start, and end with you.

    Yes, nostalgia lingers on and on until you meet your beloved soon! When, when and when will vision become alive…? Nobody knows now…!

    ” Kya Baat Hai”, flawless rendition of a immortal melody by a immortal singer.
    This song or for that matter Cliff Richard’s voice always sends nostalgic shivers down my pine.
    And you have done justice to the great voice.
    I am glad you are stretching out to this era of musical glory that was.

    In continuation….. my spine got printed as “pine”. Let’s hope it remains as strong as pine.

    Thanks TA. Pita ji, glad you liked the song! I found Cliff’s voice very much suited to my style of singing, so it wasn’t a painful effort πŸ™‚
