    My friend turned me on to this song by Bruce Springsteen a few days ago. 'If I Should Fall Behind'.

    I had never heard it. Love it. Here are the lyrics first, then the video below them.

    He sings different versions - an acoustic version, and others. This video is the version he and his wife Patti sang with an Irish twist in a Dublin concert.

    "If I Should Fall Behind"

    We said we'd walk together baby come what may
    That come the twilight should we lose our way
    If as we're walking a hand should slip free
    I'll wait for you
    And should I fall behind
    Wait for me

    We swore we'd travel darlin' side by side
    We'd help each other stay in stride
    But each lover's steps fall so differently
    But I'll wait for you
    And if I should fall behind
    Wait for me

    Now everyone dreams of a love lasting and true
    But you and I know what this world can do
    So let's make our steps clear that the other may see
    And I'll wait for you
    If I should fall behind
    Wait for me

    Now there's a beautiful river in the valley ahead
    There 'neath the oak's bough soon we will be wed
    Should we lose each other in the shadow of the evening trees
    I'll wait for you
    And should I fall behind
    Wait for me
    Darlin' I'll wait for you
    Should I fall behind
    Wait for me

    Patti, That's a lovely video. I have one that I'd like to see posted but don't know how to do it. I've wanted to mention it in one of our song games but it didn't fit any of the categories.

    It's called "Eres Tu" in Spanish, and also "Touch The Wind" I found it on a video of the Lawrence Welk Show by a singer named Anacani. She sang it in Spanish, but I know there was an English version in the '70's or '80's.
    It was also recorded by a Spanish singing group called Mocedades.

    It has a beautiful melody too. Eres Tu means "It Is You". I hope maybe you or someone can post it. Thanks GB

    That's You (Eres Tu)

    Yes, that's you
    Every wonderful sensation
    Yes, it's true
    The touch of love in the night, that's you

    A promise of laughter
    That is you, that is you
    Sun in the morning on a mountain
    The green of a meadow in the soft summer dew
    Oh yes, oh yes, that is you

    You are the love song
    Yes you are, yes you are
    The silvery music of a fountain
    The sensual whisper of a mellow guitar
    Oh yes, oh yes, that is you

    Yes, that's you
    Every wonderful sensation
    Yes, it's true
    The touch of love in the night is you

    The love of my lifetime, you will be, you will be
    The lingering rainbow I will follow
    The greatest adventure in the world for me
    Oh yes, oh yes, you will be

    Yes, that's you
    Every wonderful sensation
    Yes, it's true
    The touch of love in the night, that's you

    Yes, that's you
    Every wonderful sensation
    Yes, it's true
    The touch of love in the night, that's you

    Yes, that's you
    Every wonderful sensation
    Yes, it's true
    The touch of love in the night, that's you


    Here's an English version done by Amaya Uranga, lead singer of Mocedades from 1967 - 1984. It has the lyrics on the video.



    Spanish version by Mocedades.

    These are the lyrics to the Ray Conniff version.

    Lyrics

    Eres Tu!
    Every wonderful sensation
    Yes...it's true!
    The touch of love in the night, that's you!

    A promise of laughter, that is you, that is you
    Sun in the morning on a mountain
    The green of a meadow in the soft summer dew
    Oh yes, that's you Eres Tu!

    Eres Tu!
    Every wonderful sensation
    Yes... it's true!
    The touch of love in the night, that's you!

    The love of my lifetime you will be, you will be
    The lingering rainbow I will follow
    The greatest adventure in the world for me
    I know that's you Eres Tu!

    Eres Tu!
    Every wonderful sensation
    Yes ... It's true!
    The touch of love in the night, that's you.

    Oh Eres Tu! Every wonderful sensation
    Yes...it's true!
    The touch of love in the night, that's you!

    Love in the night, that's you! Eres Tu.

    Hi Kids

    Just listened to Perry sing Eres Tu. (Translation: Air is two.) I'd forgotten all
    about that great old tune. Thanks for posting.

    HI y'all,

    Have y'all listened to the RAY CONIFF version of Eres Tu:



    I LOVE ERES TU! I actually still have the 45 rpm. Side A is the Spanish version, Side B is English, both by Mocedades, 1973. (As Patti posted above.)

    I'm a fan of Springsteen. Been listening to his music since 1975 or so. :)

    Here's a song by Patti Scialfa (Bruce's wife) that I like... (I enjoy her music too!):

    AS LONG AS I CAN BE WITH YOU



    They say there's a light
    Through darkness shines
    If two hands protect that light
    Against the change of time
    You can have your gold and silver
    Build your kingdoms high
    But it's just one of those things baby
    That money can't buy
    So I don't care where we go baby
    I don't care what we do
    As long as I can be with you

    I've been lost
    And I've been found
    Been lifted up to the gates of heaven
    And put back down
    I've walked in chains baby
    And I've walked free
    But I never walk the way that I do
    When you walk with me
    So I don't care where we go baby
    I don't care what we do
    As long as I (as long as I) can be with you

    Whoah, whoah, whoah
    Whoah, whoah, whoah
    Sha na na na na
    Sha na na na na
    Sha na na na na na na
    Sha na na na na
    Sha na na na na
    Sha na na na na na na

    Well maybe I'm just a foolish girl
    'Cause I always thought the right kiss
    Could wash away some sins of the world
    Wash away those sins baby and go walkin' free
    'Cause that's just how I feel darlin'
    When you walk with me
    So I don't care where we go baby
    I don't care what we do
    As long as I (as long as I) can be with you
    As long as I (as long as I) can be with you

    Whoah, whoah, whoah, whoah
    Whoah, whoah, whoah
    Sha na na na na (whoah)


    Great thread!

    Diane, smiling and listening to tunes :)

    Diane, The Ray Conniff version is the one I've been searching for. Thanks! They are all beautiful. Spanish and English. My favorites are Ray Conniff, Perry Como and one that was by Anacani and the Lawrence Welk orchestra. I listened to it first yesterday. She sings in Spanish, lovely voice. GB

    I love the way Patti Scialfa sings.

    I like the Ray Coniff 'Eres Tu' best.

    Here's the Anacani with Lawrence Welk Orchestra 'Eres Tu'

    Patti, I deleted all my posts that were in the middle. I left the first and last ones. If you want to delete anything it's fine by me. My favorite videos are Ray Conniff, Perry Como, and Anacani. Anyone else have favorites? GB

    Hi GB.

    I deleted some of my posts, too.

    I'm leaving the two Mocedades versions for Diane.

    Reposting Diane's Ray Conniff version of Eres Tu, since the one she posted got deleted from YouTube.



    And here's a beautiful rendition of 'Unchained Melody'.

    Hi Patti

    A very nice version of Unchained Melody with the pan flute. I used to play the transverse
    flute in the High School Band. It was a few years ago that I came across a reference to the
    transverse flute. Never had heard of such a thing. A little research showed it was just another
    name for the standard flute I had played 60 some years earlier.

    Anyhoo the fellow in the video was an artist. I was lau-zay as zee French zay.

    Here's John Gary singing an old favorite from Broadway. John made about 20 LPs.
    I used to have all of them.

    And here's a song that is generally known as the French song. It was recorded by Lucile
    Starr as well as the Sandpipers in the 60s. Quand le soleil dit bonjour aux montagnes.
    Je suis seule, je ne veux penser qu'a toi.

    Despite the French lyrics, somebody posted on Youtube that the song originally came
    from Germany. A lovely melody in any case.

    Well, I couldn't get both videos in one post. Here, I hope, is the French song.

    Hi Kids

    Here is another singer from the days when singers had voices. Jane Morgan was born in
    Massachusetts but lived and performed in France before becoming a big star in the U.S.
    She had several gold records. A shame she never appeared in any movies.

    Hi Kids

    Remember The Seekers from the 60s? They were from Australia and became famous in 1966
    when they recorded Georgie Girl for the movie of the same name. The group had hit songs
    in Australia (their home), the United Kingdom, and the USA. Despite their success they
    broke up after only 6 years. Thirty years later they reunited.

    The melody in the video is from a Russian song about Stenka Razin who led a rebellion
    against the Tsar in the 17th century. Tom Springfield wrote hits for his sister Dusty and
    for the Seekers. He wrote new lyrics for the old melody. You can see part of the Russian
    version and the Seekers (both young and old) in this video.

    Hi Folks

    Remember the movie Born Free? Here is its theme song sung by Matt Monro, another singer
    from the era of beautiful voices. The song won an Academy Award (1966).
