Description

I first heard "Remember A Day" in 1971 with the purchase of the Relics LP. I would later find out in 1973 when purchasing Pink Floyd's second album, A Saucerful Of Secrets (1968), that it originally appeared on there. Some of my most favorite tracks on the early, pre-Dark Side Of The Moon, albums were songs by Richard Wright. I remember many an afternoon in '71 and '72 after listening to both sides of Relics, replaying the tracks "Remember A Day" and "Paintbox" by Wright then turning it over for another play of Waters' "Julia Dream." Beautiful songs to watch the shadows play on the houses and rooms in the late afternoon as the sun began its setting course. Well, you can't be partying with your friends all the time, even when your 17 and 18. I loved the reflective, haunting, even meditative moments I spent listening to these songs, and it is for this that "Remember A Day" will always be treasured by me. It reinforced what I saw in real time and at the same time gave me waking dreams ... not unlike the imagery used in this music video.
