    The original version of this, by Fred Neil, sounds a bit desolate, like he's feeling alone--everybody's talking, but he can't hear them; people are everywhere, but they can't see him and he can't see them.

    Nilsson's version, with the orchestration, his rich voice, and some beautiful scatting, has a more a positive edge; to borrow a review, it's as if happiness is just around the corner; when he gets to "where the sun keeps shining through the pourin' rain", he'll be where he wants to be and life'll be better.

    Did I imagine a comment where someone said it described their life when going through a depression? I went to log in and now it's gone. I feel the same way, but for me it's kind of a bittersweet or comforting melancholy feelings. Sad but in a happy, even nostalgic, way.

  • My Interpretation:
    26 years as a search and rescue pilot... This is my favorite song when I am out over the water. "going where the sun keeps shining, in the pouring rain" taking off in the rain soaked fog, climeing up to the sun on top. "going where the weather suits my clothes" got my flight suit and can fly anywhere. "banking off the northeast wind" one hand on the throttles the other on the yolk in a turn. "sailing on summer breeze" clear day. "skip'n over the ocean like a stone" flying at 500 feet (or less) "Everybody's talking at me , I don't hear a word they are saying only the echo in my mind" Controlers and crew (till thay say something spoted) The thing I loved doing, tring to save someone, even when the odds were not in my favor, tring to find them anyway." I won't let you leave my love behind"
    This is what this song means to me!

    My impression is that a guy has fallen for a girl and as each day goes by, he falls even harder. The people around him see this happening and realize how hopeless he is and they are all "talking at him", but he just ignores them and can "only hear the echoes in his mind".


    He's basically consumed by this lover and it is the only thing that his mind will think about.

    this song explains my life these days better than i can...plus it's just an awesome song. though it makes me think of midnight cowboy, and that's kind of depressing, heh.

    This song plays through my mind sometimes when I've had enough of the civilized world we live in day to day....

    It makes me remember the Futurama episode where they parody Midnight Cowboy... with Kif as Ratso and Zapp Brannigan as Joe Buck XD
