On days like these…

The opening three minutes of The Italian Job has this unforgettable scene driving through the Alps – the car is a Lamborghini from the time when they still knew how to make them pretty rather than just powerful.  

Accompanied by Matt Munro’s timeless song, the combination of car, scenery and music is partly responsible for the dream of a pale blue classic car.

Spoiler alert: after the song ends, something happens.  If you don’t want to know what it is, stop the video when the music stops!

On days like these when skies are blue and fields are green
I look around and think about what might have been
And then I hear sweet music float around my head
As I recall the many things we left unsaid.

 

It’s on days like these that I remember
Singing songs and drinking wine
While your eyes played games with mine.

 

On days like these I wonder what became of you
Maybe today you’re singing songs with someone new
I’d like to think you’re walking by those willow trees
Remembering the love we knew on days like these.

 

It’s on days like these that I remember
Singing songs and drinking wine
While your eyes played games with mine.

 

On days like these I wonder what became of you
Maybe today you’re singing songs with someone new.

 

Questi giorni quando vieni il belle sole
La la la la la-la-la-la la la la la

‘On days like these’ is part of the Spyder Celeste playlist which we will be sharing, one evocative tune at a time.
