Up On The Roof

Recommended Posts

japan_rooftop-01.jpg

This week we've got a simple snapshot taken by a Japanese fan on a Tokyo rooftop during Eric's visit to that country in 1979. Enjoy!

When I come home feelin' tired and beat
I go up where the air is fresh and sweet
Up on the roof

I get away from the hustling crowd
And all that rat race noise down in the street
Up on the roof

On the roof, the only place I know
Where you just have to wish to make it so
Let's go up on the roof

Up on the roof

:D

SOOO SWEET!!!

"Up on the Roof"

and now...

You TOOK my breath away!
I want it back again
I don't know what to say
I don't know how to feel

You knocked my headlights out
So turn them on again
I can't see where I'm going
I can't tell where I've been

I don't know how to feel
This hasn't been my day
Seems like I've lost a wheel
You took my breath away

You took my breath away...

Thank you Bernie!!

Andrea :)

As I've said before, I was completely taken aback by the kindness, courtesy, and intelligence of the people of Japan when I first performed there in 1977. I have had wonderful experiences there (other than the time I jumped into the orchestra pit in Osaka, and found it had been lowered from it's original depth of four feet, to ten or eleven). I love the food, the culture, and the people. Tokyo is one of my favorite cities in the world.

I think all girls are delightful. Japanese girls included.

Always the gentleman, Eric. Lovely response. :)

Isn't it great when we see ourselves in our children? We remember the moment and kind of know what they were thinking and feeling. :wub: Those moments stay in our memories forever.

This picture made me laugh. I have a photograph of Clayton with the exact same smile on his face.

Sometimes it's remarkable... when we see our younger selves in a child... or grandchild... or suddenly realize we are doing something a way that a parent might have done it unconsciously... almost like they're watching over us still... :D

Great pic as always... maybe for April 1... or Halloween... we can see some "rejects"... ;)

This was a great find. Thank you to whoever found this thread. It would be neat to see a pic of Clayton.

Well, it doesn't hurt to look! Even on April Fool's Day, 2017.
