This song, written by Masser and Goffin, is from the film Mahogany. The opening lines have always struck a chord with me.
'Do you know where you're going to?
Do you like the things that life is showing you?'
There have been times in my life when I haven't really known where I was going to and I didn't much like the things that life was showing me.
How about you?
This song was originally written by Burt Bacharach and Carol Bayer Sager for the film Night Shift. It was rerecorded in 1986 to raise money for research into Aids. Dionne Warwick, Gladys Knight, Elton John and Stevie Wonder sung it. My favourite singers all in one YouTube clip which I've attached here. I've watched this clip more times than I will admit to. [There should be a YouTube clip next. Apologies if it doesn't show.]
'...if I should ever go away
Well then close your eyes and try
To feel the way we do today
And then if you can remember
Keep smiling, keep shining...'
A lot of people lost a lot of friends to Aids, especially during the 1980s when people were unaware of the risks. The Elton John Aids Foundation is continuing to raise money for research into Aids.
