Somewhere My Love

In my parent's album collection were a large amount of albums by the Ray Conniff singers.

The Ray Conniff singers were a group of 13 men and 13 women who sang, under the direction of Ray Conniff, a variety of popular music from 1959 to about 2000.

One of the albums I remember most, and, coincidentally, was his biggest seller, was the album Somewhere My Love, which was released in 1966.


From this album, I learned a variety of songs which included:

Red Roses For A Blue Lady / Downtown / Charade / King Of The Road / Edelweiss / Young And Foolish / Somewhere My Love / Days Of Wine And Roses / Tie Me Kangaroo Down, Sport / Wouldn't It Be Loverly / So Long, Farewell


As I listened to this song this morning, and sang the words, the lyrics are very fitting for today, regarding the weather and all....

Somewhere my love, there will be songs to sing,
Although the snow, covers the hope of spring...

But, this is the theme from the movie Dr. Zhivago, and those Russian winters did tend to go a bit long as well.

Thanks again for providing a great flashback memory. I swear I could sing this album word for work. I played it a lot. I think it was the first of many of theirs we had.

Dr Zhivago is my all time favourite film, and has been since I watched it as a child...........

IEG--Yes it was. If you go look at all the album covers, it is fun to see the ones I remember having.

MT--I'm not sure I've seen the film, but I do remember reading the book.
