In the meantime, I’ll post my cover of “Rainy Days and Mondays”. I love this song because a silver lining does permeate the lyrics and the melody with a sense of hope that all is NOT lost. A sense of hope underlies the gloom and shoulders the burden of carrying the “blues”, but, only until those two feet can stand firmly planted, once again. In the meantime, a gentle reminder is needed to hold firmly upon that reliable something, whatever it may be, or whomever, he or she, may be. Everything will be just fine. Really, it will be fine. I do flash a few smiles, here and there, just to let you know that everything’s just fine with me. Personally, I’ll continue to wait patiently for that sun to share some warmth. Hopefully, when our sun finally does share, we’ll ALL be able to shake these winter doldrums!
Hey j! You were waiting for another one from The Carpenters?
Well, here it is! I hope you like it! =)
"Rainy Days and Mondays" is a 1971 song by The Carpenters that went to #2 on the BillboardHot 100 chart and was certified Gold by the RIAA. It was also the duo's fourth #1 song on the Adult Contemporary singles chart. However, the song failed to chart in the United Kingdom until it went to #63 in a reissue there in 1993. The song was composed in 1971 by then fairly unknown composers Roger Nichols and Paul Williams. It was released as the first track on the album Carpenters. The B-side on the single is "Saturday." Olivia Newton-John, one of Karen's best friends, recorded a cover version of this song in her album Indigo: Women of Song as a tribute to Karen.
