Memories of You

Lyrics:Andy Razaf
Music:Eubie Blake

The song was publishe 1930.

The song was introduced by singer Minto Cato in the Broadway show
Lew Leslie's Blackbirds of 1930. A 1930 version recorded
by Louis Armstrong featuring Lionel Hampton is the first known
use of the vibraphone in popular music.

A version of the song recorded by The Four Coins
from the biopic The Benny Goodman Story
reached #22 on the Billboard magazine chart in 1955.
Robert Wyatt's version appears on his single "Shipbuilding",
released in 1982, and was reissued on the CD Mid-Eighties (1993).

Doc Severinsen and the NBC Orchestra performed a moving,
melancholy instrumental version on the final airing
of The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson, May 22, 1992.
The song played over a five-minute "scrapbook" tribute montage
showing brief silent clips of some of Carson's favorite guests -
seen interacting with the host through the years.

Why can't I forget like I should?
Heaven knows I would if I could.
But I just can't keep you off my mind.
Though you're gone, I have to explain,
All around me you still remain.
Wonder why fate should be so unkind?

Waking skies at sunrise
Every sunset, too,
Seems to be bringing me
Memories of you.

Here and there, everywhere
Scenes that we once knew
And they all just recall
Memories of you.

How I wish I could forget those happy yesteryears
That have left a rosary of tears.
Your face beams in my dreams,
'Spite of all I do
Everything seems to bring
Memories of you.

You can never capture it again. "
