3. Retrospect

The song Times of your Life was first made popular by Kodak, which bought it from the writers William Lane and Roger Nichols. Originally called Our Town by the Sea, Lane and Nichols rewrote the song for Kodak, which used it as a jingle for what turned out to be one of their most successful ad campaigns. Paul Anka later recorded the song, and it quickly rose to #7 on pop billboard charts. I love the song and its lyrics:

 

Times of your Life

 

Good morning, yesterday

You wake up and time has slipped away

And suddenly it’s hard to find

The memories you left behind

Remember, do you remember?

 

The laughter and the tears

The shadows of misty yesteryears

The good times and the bad you’ve seen

And all the others in between

Remember, do you remember

The times of your life? (do you remember?)

 

Reach out for the joy and the sorrow

Put them away in your mind

The mem’ries are time that you borrow

To spend when you get to tomorrow

 

Here comes the saddest part (comes the saddest part)

The seasons are passing one by one

So gather moments while you may

Collect the dreams you dream today

Remember, will you remember

The times of your life?

 

lt;instrumental interludegt;

 

Gather moments while you may

Collect the dreams you dream today

Remember, will you remember

The times of your life?

 

Of your life

Of your life

Do you remember, baby

Do you remember the times of your life?

 

FADE

 

Do you remember, baby

Do you remember the times of your life?

 

 

Day 3 Guide

 

The mem’ries are time that you borrow

To spend when you get to tomorrow.

 

Today spend your time as if you are building for tomorrow. Love, laugh and learn.
