"I Remember That" as written by and Paddy Mcaloon....
Nothing sounds as good as "I Remember That"
Like a bolt out from the blue, did you feel it too?
I remember that

Name me one little thing, you'll be wanting to keep
As you give up the ghost as you sink into sleep
Maybe her face in the morning, maybe his in the evening
Maybe words never spoken, aren't they the ones worth hearin'?
Say I remember that

Nothing sounds as good as "I Remember That"
Like a bolt out from the blue, did you feel it too?
I remember that
Nothing sounds as good as "I Remember That"
Like a bolt out from the blue, did you feel it too?
I remember that

'Cause that's all we can have, yes it's all we can trust
It's a hell of a ride but a journey to dust
And there's nothing pathetic listing clothes she'd wear
If it proves that I had you, if it proves I was there
Say I remember that

Nothing sounds as good as "I Remember That"
Like a bolt out from the blue, did you feel it too?
I remember that
Nothing sounds as good as "I Remember That"
Like a bolt out from the blue, did you feel it too?
I remember that

Did you feel it too?... I remember that
Did you feel it too?... I remember that...

    Song Meaningi can't understand why there's so little discussion about this song anywhere. melancholy about the ultimate futility of life, and that all we have is to experience it with people around us - and the joy in those moments. beyudiful.

    General CommentIt's the most soulful & at the same time the most jazzy of the known Sprout songs... and as I usually point out to my daughter "The quality of our life depends on the quality of memories that we create via choices & actions in our everyday life" but also important -as thedanster already pointed out- sharing those memories with other people (in time or place, loved ones or completetly strangers) and building sentimental bonds of a unique spiritual status among us.

    General CommentI've been listening but glossing over this gem for years. The music is weak by Prefab standards and a mismatch with the lyrics. But those lyrics...they ache. I was one who missed out on so many chances to build memories. Now all gone now.
