  1. Clair

    "Clair" is a popular song by Irish singer Gilbert O'Sullivan and is one of his biggest-selling singles. Written by O'Sullivan and produced by Gordon Mills, it was the number one single in the UK for two weeks in November 1972, number one in Canada on the RPM 100 national singles chart the following January, and peaked at number two on the Billboard Hot 100 in the US. It was also O'Sullivan's second and last number one hit on the U.S. Easy Listening chart, after "Alone Again". The song is the love song of an uncle for his young niece, though for the first part of the song, the ambiguous text leads one to think that it is from one adult to another. The brief instrumental introduction is the sound of Gilbert whistling, before he comes in. The real Clair was the young daughter of O'Sullivan's producer-manager, Gordon Mills, and his wife, the model Jo Waring. The little girl's giggling is heard at the end of this song. The "Uncle Ray" mentioned in the song is O'Sullivan himself, a reference to his real name of Raymond O'Sullivan. The instrumental break in the middle section is done half a step up from A to B-Flat, before going back to A. "Clair" was included in Sullivan's album Back to Front. An Italian version was performed in 1973 by the crooner Johnny Dorelli. A cover by Singers Unlimited was sampled by producer J Dilla for the Slum Village song "Players."

    De nombreux événements de la vie peuvent être comparés avec les mirages qui trompent toujours le voyageur dans le désert toujours fuyant. nous courons parfois après séduisante rêves attrayantes dans l'espoir de les atteindre, mais en vain. à un certain stade, nous découvrons que tous ceux qui étaient seulement nos délires .... les rêves, les gens et les promesses que nous avons couru après ne sont pas vraiment ce que nous pensions qu'ils soient. à ce stade, il est préférable de passer à autre chose, et ne pas penser à ces rêves une défaillance humaine, trompeuses, et les promesses non tenues. à mon avis, tout en reconnaissant les mirages illusoires dans le temps à droite est le plus important pour le voyageur - parce qu'elle est la première étape dans la direction du chemin clair, ce qui peut souvent conduire à l'oasis, le succès final. La vie est rien, mais de passer! La vie continue!
