This could probably go into another thread, but as it was an so emotional in a musicy sort of way I thought I would tell you about it, or am I a compulsive threader.
Anyway....I got a belated christmas pressy last night from persons unknown - a copy of Carole Kings LP "Music" (1971)It had been my very favourite but was sadly lost when I lent it to someone who then gave it away to someone else. I put the music on (this version was on CD) and it randomly chose track 8 which just happened to be my very very favourite song. I had not heard it for 29 years and I still knew the words but could not sing for the feeling of being thrown back to being 16 again and just loving the music and words and crying big silent tears
"loving the people I've befriended and singing a song of long ago"
Then the phone rang and you've guessed it it was the my mate Christine who is not to be trusted in the lending of LP's department. She lives a long way from me and we don't keep in touch very often.
I listened to the CD twice over and track 8 about 4 times. My kids were not thrilled - but what the heck I have to suffer techno/house/funk.
It was a great evening Patrish

Don't know if it fits here but what the hell. I'm getting compulsive too.
SING ME THE OLD SONGS
1. I sit by my fire when the twilight falls softly
CHORUS: Sing me the old songs of laughter and pleasure.
2. I hear an old song that keeps haunting me ever.
3. I remember the summers, the walks in the country,

A blast from the past:
SONG OF LONG AGO
Words and music by Carole King
As recorded by Carole King on "Music" (1971)
Whispering wind came uninvited,
Looking for somewhere else to go.
Here is a lamp I've left unlighted.
Aren't you someone I should know?
Memory's flame is soon ignited,
Lighting my lamp with amber glow.
Quietly friends are reunited
Singing a song of long ago, la la la...
Cry, cry for someone
Who just can't be happy
And be glad you can feel enough to cry.
Younger than always, time descended,
Bringing me brand new seeds to sow.
Now that they've been a long time planted,
What must I do to help them grow?
If it had been as I intended,
I wouldn't have the peace I know,
Loving the people I've befriended,
Singin' a song of long ago, la la la...
As it began, so I will end it,
Singing a song of long ago,
Loving the people I've befriended
And singin' a song of long, long, long ago.
