This morning I woke at six and into my head flooded this song
It's a lovely day tomorrow
Tomorrow is a lovely day
Come and feast your tear dimmed eyes
On tomorrow's clear blue skies
Vera Lynn died a few days ago and I suppose her most famous song was “We’ll meet again”, often heard in the first days of lockdown. But a lovely day tomorrow seems more immediately optimistic; it is a favourite song and on my Spotify starred song list. And I think Vera Lynn’s voice, voice control, and ability to convey simple sincerity are amazing. This song, sung at a bleaker time even than now, is a message of calm optimism and steadfastness.
