♫ The Way We Were/Try To Remember ♫

This song is actually a compilation of two songs, The Way We Were, originally sung by Barbra Streisand, and Try To Remember, originally sung by just about everybody, including Gladys Knight.

I hope you don’t mind if I just give you the music tonight, sans background trivia, for I am simply exhausted and cannot go digging tonight.  I do like the song, though, and love the way she sings it, so sit back, relax, and just listen …

The Way We Were – Try To Remember
Gladys Knight

Memories light the corners of my mind
Misty water-colored memories of the way we were
Scattered pictures of the smiles we left behind
Smiles we gave to one another for the way we were

Can it be that it was all so simple then
Or has time rewritten every line
If we had the chance to do it all again
Tell me, would we?
Could we?

Memories may be beautiful and yet
What’s too painful to remember
We simply choose to forget
So it’s the laughter we will remember
Whenever we remember
The way we were
The way we were

Songwriters: Alan Bergman / Marilyn Bergman / Marvin Hamlisch

  1. Another version I had never heard before. Very beautiful. So I played Midnight Train to Georgia too. I want to go back to a simpler place and time, the 60s, when we celebrated love despite all the hate around us. We knew we could overcome. Then shit happened.
