Music of the Day #33 - Terry Reid: July

Before this month ends, I'd like to share the song "July" by the British singer, songwriter and guitarist Terry Reid. I recently discovered this song while watching the 2012 documentary "The Summit" which covers the tragic outcome of a K-2 expedition. In the late 60s, Jimmy Page wanted Terry Reid as the singer for his newly formed group the New Yardbirds. Terry Reid declined and recommended Robert Plant instead. The group shortly after changed their name to Led Zeppelin. Later on, Terry Reid was also asked to join Deep Purple which he declined as well, focusing on a solo career instead. It's a beautifully introspective and melancholic song delivered in a wailing and improvised tone. I hope that you'll enjoy it as much as I did.

July by Terry Reid

Thought that in July that we could buy the months of may and the time for the lines I couldn't make

sun sea and spray is where you lay so peacefully like a stone sown by land and sea

red from red to brown from brown to gold and out of view still the sun is beating down, beating down onto your body like the sun rose out the dew

ahhh, if we ever meet again I won't be sorry won't even worry, won't even care just as long as you can make it out you'll be there, oh that's right

red from red to brown from brown to gold and out of view till the sun is beating down beating down onto your body like I know some rose out you

wah, if we ever meet again I know I wont' be sorry won't even worry won't even care

just as long as you can show me the one thing come on girl make it out, why won't you be there 'cause you're the one i love you're the one I love, you're the one I love, you're the one I love
