NOSTALGIA III : Remembrance of things past - English Songs

This is the third part of the series. The songs here are in English and they reflect the emotions expressed in the first two editions. You can see them by clicking "earlier posts" at the bottom of the page.

Yesterday love was such an easy game to play....

I sang this as a kid when I was in the school choir.It stayed with me ever since.
"Sunrise, sunset swiftly flowing by,...when did he get to be so tall?, when did she get to be a beauty? Wasn't it yesterday that they were small?"...

This is a rather sad song and the context is interesting.The song was based on "Le Moribond" ("The Dying Man"), written by Jacques Brel in 1961. Brel's song was translated into English by poet Rod McKuen. Terry Jacks, rewrote part of the lyrics to "lighten them up."
