  • Love soft as an easy chair
    Love fresh as the morning air
    One love that is shared by two
    I have found with you

    Hey
    Like a rose under the April snow, oh yeah oh yeah
    I was always certain love would grow, oh
    Love ageless and evergreen (ever, ever, green and seldom seen)
    Seldom seen by two

    You and I will make each night a first
    Everyday a new beginning oh
    Everyday a beginning
    Darling do you know you make my spirits rise
    Spirits rise and their dance is unrehearsed
    Ooh they warm and excite us oh
    'Cause we have the brightest love

    Two lives that shine as one
    Morning glory and midnight sun
    (Time) Time we've learned to sail above oh oh
    (Time) Time won't change the meaning of one love
    Ageless and ever (ever, ever)
    Evergreen (evergreen)

  • Ian Spencer from Solihull, UkThe thing that always bugged me about this successful song is that the verse and arrangement is so familiar, so familiar that in fact it has the rhythm, melody and arrangement of For All We Know by the Carpenters, so it probably is the most awarded rip off - and search the Internet and nobody mentions the likeness of the two songs.
  • Barry from Sauquoit, NyOn December 5th 1976, "Evergreen" by Barbra Streisand entered Billboard's Hot Top 100 chart at position #72; and twelve weeks later on February 27th, 1977 it would peak at #1 {for 3 weeks} and it spent almost a half-year on the Top 100 {25 weeks}...
    And on January 9th, 1977 it also reached #1 {for 6 weeks} on Billboard's Adult Contemporary Tracks chart {also peaked at #1 on the Canadian Pop and Contemporary chart}...
    On March 28th, 1977 the song won the Academy Award for 'Best Original Song' from the movie 'A Star Is Born' {another #1 record was also a nominee; Bill Conti's "Gonna Fly Now" from 'Rocky'}...
    The 2nd & 3rd week that "Evergreen" was at #1; it prevented "Fly Like An Eagle" by the Steve Miller Band from reaching the top spot, for it peaked at #2 for both those weeks.
  • Wayne from Nederland, TxActually, A Star is Born was the # 4 film in 1976 not a commercial flop.
  • Larry from New York City, NyElvis Presley was first contacted, by Barbra herself, for the role of her lover in ?A Star Is Born?. Imagine Barbra singing to Elvis!!! There where to many contract demands from Elvis?s manager. So Elvis was dropped and the role went to Kris Kristofferson . Kris won a Golden Globe for it and made him a leading man in Hollywood. I still dream of Barbra and Elvis singing, kissing and making love in my mind. Wow, what did we miss????? Great Movie and ?Kris and Barbra? where great together.
  • David from Youngstown, OhNot a Streisand fan by any stretch of the imagination, although growing up as a Jew in NYC, it was a challenge to ignore her music. This is especially true when your mother and her friends love Babs. The movie was a big deal when it was released - a remake of a remake, 1st done in 1937 and then in 1954 with Judy Garland and James Mason. But it was a critical and commercial flop.
