Valerie

 

This week begins a new theme for Music Monday! I’m going to feature songs with names in them … either in the title or in the song itself … so this should be fun!

 In honor of my mom, today I’m playing “Valerie” by Steve Winwood. Written by Steve Winwood and Will Jennings, this song was on the album Talking Back to the Night, released in 1982. The song deals with a man reminiscing about a lost love he hopes to find again someday. Not only is this a fun song to sing along with, it also features her name and spells it correctly!

 So, mommy … this one’s for you! 🙂

 

So wild, standing there, with her hands in her hair
I can't help remember just where she touched me
There's still no face here in her place
So cool, she was like jazz on a summer's day
Music, high and sweet, then she just blew away
Now she can't be that warm with the wind in her arms
Valerie, call on me-call on me, Valerie
Come and see me-I'm the same boy I used to be
Love songs fill the night, but they don't tell it all
Not how lovers cry out just like they're dying
Her cries hang there in time somewhere
Someday, some good wind may blow her back to me
Some night I may here her like she used to be
No it can't be that warm with the wind in her arms
So cool, she was like jazz on a summer's day
Music, high and sweet, then she just blew away
Don't tell me you're warm with the wind in your arms
MeAndMommy
