FROM THE ARCHIVE 287 -1967-

trkl017eOn A Clear Day (You Can See Forever) is song from the 1967 album And We Were Lovers. It was from the musical of the same title. On a Clear Day You Can See Forever is a musical with music by Burton Lane and a book and lyrics by Alan Jay Lerner based loosely on Berkeley Square, written in 1929 by John L. Balderston. It concerns a woman who has ESP and has been reincarnated. The musical received three Tony Award nominations. A 1970 film adaptation directed by Vincente Minnelli starred Barbra Streisand and Yves Montand. (Special thanks to Scot for this information).

In Australia in 1971 Shirley Bassey was presented with a gold disc for this album, during her yearly visit to Australia and New Zealand. This was the first gold disc awarded to a female recording artist in Australia.

Lyrics:

On a clear day, rise and look around you
And you’ll see who you are
On a clear day how it will astound you
That the glow of your being outshines every star

You’ll feel part of ev’ry mountain, sea, and shore
You can hear from far and near a world you’ve never heard before

And on a clear day, on that clear day
You can see forever and ever more

You can hear from far and near a world you’ve never heard before

And on that clear day, on that clear day
You can see forever and ever and ever and ever and ever and evermore!
