David Gilmour Interviewed by Jools Holland about Rick Wright and the new CD

David Gilmour - Remember A Day

Remember a Day was recorded by Pink Floyd, and is featured on their second album, A Saucerful of Secrets (1968). The song, written and sung by Richard Wright, was recorded in October 1967 at De Lane Lea Studios in London. The sessions also yielded Jugband Blues, Vegetable Man, In the Beechwoods and John Latham.

On Tuesday, September 23rd 2008, David Gilmour performed the song on a live broadcast of Later... with Jools Holland on BBC Two as a tribute to Richard Wright who had died eight days earlier. In an interview on the show, Gilmour had said that Wright had intended to perform with him on the show, but had contacted Gilmour not long before his death to advise him that he would not be able to attend. This was the first live performance of the song.

Remember A Day

Remember a day before today
A day when you were young
Free to play along with time
Evening never comes

Sing a song that can't be sung
Without the morning's kiss
Dream you shall be if you wish
Look for your king

Why can't we play today?
Why can't we stay that way?

Climb your favourite apple tree
Try to catch the sun
Hide from your little brother's gun
Dream yourself away

Why can't we reach the sun?
Why can't we blow the years away?
Blow away
Blow away
