Castle in the air - Don McLean Original

    My Grandads favourite song. He moved from Kilburn London to Hertfordshire "in the sticks" as he would call it. This is where he met my Nan. He would always make me listen to the line "I'll meet a country woman for my wife. I'm city born, but I love the country life". We played it his funeral, and this song always reminds of the good times, smoking a fat one and sipping a whiskey with him.

    "B" side of the 7" vinyl single "Vincent". Two utter classics on one piece of plastic. I'm not sure which is the best, although Vincent would induce tears in my Mum.

    I have to inform anyone watching this that it is not the original version (as stated here) is the 1980 slow (and in my humble opinion) the inferior version of the song. The real original is the (United Artists) B-side of "Vincent" which is a better and faster version of this song. A really good alternative version is the 1976 live version from the album "Solo" where McLean segues this song and "Three Flights Up" into a solo 'tour de force'..... (link below....)

    Another masterpiece by Don McLean! It was not a popular air play song, but it certainly is one of my absolute favorites of his. Thank you my sadly deceased brother Ken for introducing me to Don McLean's music way back in the 70's. RIP Ken. I'll forever miss you and think of you when I listen to this wonderful song.

    I've always loved this song, but I had a very magical moment that makes me love it even more. I was taking the ferryboat from Bremerton to Seattle one morning, when a lyric line perfectly fit what I was seeing. "Hills of forest green where the mountains touch the sky...." I heard that just as I looked at a tiny, uninhabited island covered in evergreens, in Puget Sound, with Mount Rainier poised perfectly behind it. I see it in my head every time I hear this song now, thanks so much for sharing!

    Another song of Don's that didn't get the notice that it should have back in the 70's. It's just a great song along with Starry Starry night. This is what music should be about. Just Timeless.

    I love this so much. Reminds of me telling my wife that is what I wanted to do. Well she prevailed. But this song keeps me happy. I am not a part of the cocktail generation though.

    Castles in the air Don McLean lyrics And if she asks you why you can tell her that I told you That I'm tired of Castles in the Air I've got a dream I want the world to share in castle walls Just leave me to despair Hills of forest green where the mountains touch the sky A dream come true, I'll live there 'til I die I'm asking you, to say my last goodbye The love we knew, ain't worth another try Save me from all the trouble and the pain I know I'm weak but I can't face that girl again Tell her the reasons why I can't remain Perhaps she'll understand if you tell it to her plain Oh, but how can words express the feel of sunlight In the morning in the hills away from city strife I need a country woman for my wife I'm city born but I love the country life For I can not be part of her "Cocktail-Generation Partner's Waltz, " Devoid of all romance The music plays and everyone must dance I'm bowing out, I need a second chance Save me from all the trouble and the pain I know I'm weak but I can't face that girl again Tell her the reasons why I can't remain Perhaps she'll understand if you tell it to her plain And if she asks you why you can tell her that I told you That I'm tired of Castles in the Air I've got a dream I want the world to share in castle walls Just leave me to despair

    So, I don’t know if this is a well known thing, but the actual original Tapestry-album version isn’t this, this is apparently the “hit version” which by the way is one of my favourite all-time songs, but I just bought the tapestry album from a local record shop because I saw castles in the air on it so wanted to get it, when I get home and play it it’s this awful, horrific sped up version with loads of synth and really weird vocals, so I wonder if there’s something wrong with the belt on my player, but no it just that this version was a slightly later released mix of the original, which improved upon the original in every single way, apart from the lyrics. I know I’ve rambled on a bit but just so you do t learn the hard way and wonder if you’re losing you’re sanity like I was, if it says on the record the length of the song and it’s 2:50 then don’t expect this, which is, as you can see 3:42
