How could I be this at ease with him,
Or wrap my heart as I please with him,
He isn't you,
He isn't you,
When will I feel so in bloom again,
When will our voice warm the room again,
He isn't you,
He isn't you,
Memories may fade in the shadows behind me,
But, they'll be the dream that will always remind me,
I'll be forever comparing him to,
Full of key he may,
Even die for me,
Sweep every cloud from the sky for me,
He may be king, but he'll never
Be you.

'On a Clear Day (You Can See Forever)' is a song written by Burton Lane (music) and Alan Jay Lerner (lyrics) for the 1965 musical On a Clear Day You Can See Forever. It was subsequently performed by American actress and vocalist Barbra Streisand in the 1970 film adaptation of the musical.

Three variations of the song appear in the film and on the accompanying soundtrack album produced by Wally Gold: the initial version sung by co-star Yves Montand, a reprise version sung by Streisand, and an orchestral version performed alongside a live chorus. The Streisand rendition was released by Columbia Records as a promotional single on 7' vinyl (with a stereo mix on one side and mono on the other) in July 1970.

The track received positive reviews from music critics, with many of them listing it as a highlight of the soundtrack.

Background and release[edit]

'On a Clear Day (You Can See Forever)' was introduced by John Cullum in the 1965 Broadway musical of the same name. It was subsequently used in the 1970 film adaptation of the musical, in which Streisand appears as the main character. The song was recorded in early 1970 while filming the movie at Samuel Goldwyn Studios in West Hollywood, California.[1] Three versions of the song are used in the film, and all appear on the accompanying soundtrack album. The song is initially performed in the film by Streisand's co-star Yves Montand, whereas the reprise version is sung by Streisand and the orchestral version is performed with a live chorus.[2]

The reprise rendition was released as a promotional single on 7' vinyl in July 1970 by Columbia Records. The standard edition release includes both the mono and stereo versions of 'On a Clear Day (You Can See Forever)' as the A-side and B-side, respectively.[3] A limited edition version also exists, where the mono version exclusively appears on 7'.[4]

Composition[edit]

'On a Clear Day (You Can See Forever)' was written by Burton Lane and Alan Jay Lerner and produced by Wally Gold.[2] According to the official sheet music published by the Warner Music Group, the song is written in the key of E major with a moderately fast beat consisting of 126 beats per minute. Accompanied by the instrumentation of a piano, Streisand's vocals range from G3 to C5. She begins the song with the lyric 'On a clear day, rise and look around you / And you'll see who you are'.[5]

Critical reception[edit]

'On a Clear Day (You Can See Forever)' was perceived as a highlight on the film's soundtrack. Vincent Canby from The New York Times lauded the single and album tracks 'Come Back to Me', 'Go to Sleep', and 'What Did I Have That I Don't Have' for being the soundtrack's four best songs.[6] Although AllMusic's William Ruhlmann was critical of the majority of On a Clear Day You Can See Forever, he complimented Streisand's vocal performance on the title track.[7] The staff at Billboard complimented Streisand's performance on 'On a Clear Day (You Can See Forever)'. They wrote that because of its strength, and the strengths of soundtrack songs 'He Isn't You' and 'What Did I Have That I Don't Have', the album will likely become a commercial success and is worth purchasing.[8]
