The orchestra plays very softly in the background, never at any time swamping Vera, and by doing this you hear her all the pleading in her voice. Then as her voice dies away Addio Amore - Vera Lynn - Sincerely Yours - Famous Songs (CD) clarinet repeats the refrain beautifully.
This is a nice song, another that is perhaps not so well known now, but hearing it in this lovely arrangement made it a true pleasure. A real morale booster this one, believe me. Vera sings as if she is telling you that, in spite of the happening in that second year of war, she wants you to forget your troubles and believe it will still be "a lovely day tomorrow".

It was a pleasurable addition to any Orchestra at the time that now gives so much "period feel" to the recordings it is featured on.

Even without the music, anyone with the basics of training could be heard strumming it at gatherings where people tried to forget what might happen to them at any time. Listening to the words as Vera sings them you can hear again that she was of the generation that knew the words of a song were as important as the music. It is no surprise that "Memories live longer than dreams", recorded by Vera Lynn in yet again with Arthur Young at the Novachord, was considered an appropriate "follow up" to the previous one.
Vera sings the words with all the meaning sounding in her voice, not over-pleadingly, but reminding you that in spite of what could happen you would still have your memories that last for ever. A song to be listened to and to and remembered that every word is so true. It's a simple song and many people thought it too sad at the time, I remember. Well, perhaps it was, but this was Vera desperately trying to assure you that the day would come when there would be no shadows and it would be possible to stroll once again into the sunset hand in hand with the one you love.
Jay Wilbur and his Band strike just the right tempo, keeping their contribution soft and gently helping Vera sing this song that is meant to ensure everyone gets the right message.
