"I Remember (Death In The Afternoon)" as written by Midge Ure, Warren Reginald Cann, William Currie and Christopher Thomas Allen....
We turned the dial, we heard the news and laughed, we don't know why
We drank the wine and spoke of times we knew of days gone by
We flicked through photographs we had, somehow they made us sad
Remembering the times we used to have, it made us cry

Oh I remember death in the afternoon

A silence fell about the room with harsh and heavy calm
The lovers and the friends all felt the same, it kept us warm
We raised our glass and drank to times we had, but'd see no more
The pictures of the past would haunt us still, and there remains

Oh I remember death in the afternoon

    General CommentI picture a dreary post-World War2 Europe. Perhaps the song writer is reminiscing about the times he had just before the war.
    If there is such a thing as the perfect song then I Remember [Death In The Afternoon] is it!
