I don't see the connection about the comedian to the song, though. Maybe the Casablance reference gives a bit of the reason.
It sounds like it is a story about leaving reality and life behind, to go to some country where "they turn back time" to meet someone amazing, and then use them as a reason to hide from the reality of life. People went to Casablance to escape the war, to escape reality. When this song came out, I was dating a man whom I loved very much. One night, he told me that this song reminded him of our relationship.
I had just gotten out of the Navy and gone back to college to finish my degree when I got an assignment in government class to go see a new movie about the revolution in Indonesia, with some unknown stars in it named Linda Hunt, Sigourney Weaver, and Mel Gibson; and this song was playing at the time on the air. I know it's not about a cat but the day I heard it again was the day I had to put my sweet little 15 yo Russian Blue Lulu down due to kidney failure.
Given the atmosphere of the movie and the theme of the song, it's hard not to equate them - an ex-pat being led who knows where by unknown people in an unknown and mysterious land by possibly untrustworthy people. When this song came on after Lulu was gone the flood of emotions that I was holding back just rushed out.
Both girls and their families were refugees from the first wave. Early in the trip I became attached to a 20 yo girl who I met in one of classes.
I eventually went to Viet Nam and found the house where my late wife had lived. We spent the rest of the trip together and I will return in October.
This song has always been unique among all songs I've ever heard - the combination of the very different musical effects with the storyline has captivated me from the first time I ever heard it.
Unlike most listeners in this country, I was raised overseas (although I was born in Texas); so the imagery of the "blue tiled walls near the market stalls" hits home to me in a special way, since I've grown up around bazaars and markets from Okinawa to Pakistan to Istanbul.
I first heard of Al Stewart in 1976 or 7 when my Vietnamese girl friend gave me the Year of he Cat album.
I eventually married a different Vietnamese girl who passed away.
I love the way the song takes its time.intro is long, and that is by no means a bad thing. I don't want to think about how much time I have spent here.Tags: Adult Dating, affair dating, sex dating
