It’s Looking Like A Beautiful Day

Jim Adams, aka Newepicauthor, the creator of A Unique Title For Me, is hosting SONG-LYRIC-SUNDAY and this week he has chosen the truly delightful theme: ALLURING/BEAUTIFUL/CHARMING/GRACEFUL/SEDUCTIVE

Hills, India, Nature, Kodaikanal, Trees

Do you know…this is a lovely theme…but I fear we may be tempted to all pick the same songs! There are some truly beautiful songs that have carved their niche in music history because of singing about beauty and all it’s allures.

I have picked a song which I know is very popular. The band are Elbow, the song is “One Day Like This”. You know it! I picked two videos for you, the first with beautiful pictures….the second – live at Glastonbury. From the first few bars, you know it is going to be an anthem.

Drinking in the morning sun
Blinking in the morning sun
Shaking off a heavy one
Yeah, heavy like a loaded gun

What made me behave that way?
Using words I never say
I can only think it must be love
Oh anyway, it’s looking like a beautiful day

Someone tell me how I feel
It’s silly wrong, but vivid right
Oh, kiss me like a final meal
Yeah, kiss me like we die tonight

‘Cause holy cow, I love your eyes
And only now I see the light
Yeah, lying with you half awake
Oh, anyway, it’s looking like a beautiful day

When my face is chamois creased
If you think I wink, I did
Laugh politely at repeats
Yeah, kiss me when my lips are thin

‘Cause holy cow, I love your eyes
And only now I see the light
Yeah, lying with you half awake
Stumbling over what to say
Well, anyway, it’s looking like a beautiful day

So throw those curtains wide
One day like this a year would see me right
Throw those curtains wide
One day like this a year would see me right

Throw those curtains wide
One day like this a year would see me right
Throw those curtains wide
One day like this a year would see me right for life

Throw those curtains wide
‘Cause holy cow, I love your eyes
One day like this a year would see me right
And only now I see the light
Throw those curtains wide
‘Cause holy cow, I love your eyes
One day like this a year would see me right
And only now I see the light

Throw those curtains wide
One day like this a year would see me right
Throw those curtains wide
One day like this a year would see me right

Throw those curtains wide
One day like this a year would see me right
Throw those curtains wide
One day like this a year would see me right

Throw those curtains wide
One day like this a year would see me right
Throw those curtains wide
One day like this a year would see me right

Throw those curtains wide
One day like this a year would see me right
Throw those curtains wide
One day like this a year would see me right

    1. I am so glad Irene!! I could not pick which video to feature. It is great to see everyone loving the live performance at Glastonbury, but sometimes a studio recording is better quality. It is such a great track!
