Sunshine I’m only dreaming

It’s supposed to drop to zero d’d’d’d’d degrees Fahrenheit here in Eastern Massachusetts (I’ll be sure to bundle up for my scheduled morning walk) and never mind the wind-chill.  It’s a day perfectly suited for a song such as this.

Perhaps you recall that Alan Price helped to form The Animals back in 1962, and left the band in ’65 to form the Alan Price Set. One of his claims to fame was introducing British listeners to the songs of Randy Newman and Georgie Fame, among others.  Another was his ability to write some memorable film scores, particularly that of  “O Lucky Man!”

I once saw him at a summer music festival in Battersea Park (within sight of my flat) and can still picture his convincing rendition of this Sonny Rollins tune.  Wonder how much more conv’v’v’v’vincing he’d be today.

Don’t Stop The Carnival 

 No, don’t stop the carnival

No, don’t stop the carnival

You’ll never find a better way

No, don’t stop the carnival

Let us sing the night and day away

No, don’t stop the carnival

Sunshine I’m only dreaming

Sunshine I’m only dreaming

 You’ll never find a better way

No, don’t stop the carnival

Let us sing the night and day away

No, don’t stop the carnival

Sunshine I’m only dreaming

Sunshine I’m only dreaming

But this is England on a winter’s afternoon

There is no sun, there’s just a pale and tired moon

And shivering sparrows on the smoking chimney tops

And all the children suffer from cold and flu and raindrops

 No, don’t stop the carnival

No, don’t stop the carnival

You’ll never find a better way

No, don’t stop the carnival

Let us sing the night and day away

No, don’t stop the carnival

Sunshine I’m only dreaming

Sunshine I’m only dreaming

d’d’d’d’d’d’ I’m only dreaming

d’d’d’d’d’d’ I’m only dreaming
