  • Simona
    You're getting older
    Your journey's been etched
    On your skin

    Simona
    Wish I had known that
    What seemed so strong
    Has been and gone

    I would call you up everyday Saturday night
    And we'd both stay out until the morning light
    And we sang, here we go again
    And though time goes by
    I will always be
    In a club with you
    In nineteen seventy three
    Singing, here we go again

    Simona
    Wish I was sober
    So I could see clearly now
    The rain has gone

    Simona
    I guess it's over
    My memory plays our tune
    The same old song

    I would call you up everyday Saturday night
    And we'd both stay out until the morning light
    And we sang, here we go again
    And though time goes by
    I will always be
    In a club with you
    In nineteen seventy three
    Singing, here we go again

    I would call you up everyday Saturday night
    And we'd both stay out until the morning light
    And we sang, here we go again
    And though time goes by
    I will always be
    In a club with you
    In nineteen seventy three
    Singing, here we go again

    And though time goes by
    I will always be
    In a club with you
    In nineteen seventy three Writer/s: James Blount, Mark Batson

  • Ayoola Peter from NigeriaI so much love you James more grace dude
  • Peping from Guangzhou, China1973 is my favorite song. I can just close my eyes and listening to this song, then it feels I'm travelling so far away, flashback, revisiting all memories I have with my mother. This is our favorite song to listen, whenever we both have trip together, through mountainous road between Yogyakarta and Semarang, seeing old buildings around, which probably have been built far before year 1973. James Blunt's song, 1973, is so much meaningful to me. Everytime I hear that, it makes me wanna say this to my mother, over and over again, "I love you, Simona. Here we go again, Ma"
  • Lori from Alexandria, Va"Here We Go Again" is the title of an earlier James Blunt song.
  • Jeff from Kingston, TnTo run off the emotions of the lyrics. We all have had that moment where we are at a place not close to home. In that moment we have met someone that you talked with, maybe attracted to, either way had a good time. Go back to that time in your head and you usually get a smile. He could have named in "1910" if he wanted. The title doesn't mean anything, the lyrics do.
  • Samir from Gangtok, IndiaThis song is clearly about a club named Pascha and his memories about that place.
    I like the words, "Here we go Again"
    It seems like "here we go again" means that whenever he thinks of that place.......his mind is full of nostalgice memories.

    In 1973 here we go Again!
  • Tom from Stoke-on-trent, United KingdomJust to add to Lori's answer to Nikki. As well as chaning it to Blunt so it isnt always mispronouced. 'Blount' is still his legal name but still calls himself by Blunt as he didnt want to have to spell it out every time he got asked his name.
  • Runnawaygrrl from Sydney, AustraliaThanks, Lori, for answering NIkki's question. I've been waiting for it! :)
  • Lefty_2ndbaseman from Chicago, IlI was also born in 1973...this song reminds me alot of Andy Gibb. Also, the ilikemusic.com interview quotes James Blunt as being born in 1978, when in fact his real birthdate is Feb.22nd, 1974. Great song, a real throwback for all the right reasons!
  • Lori from Alexandria, VaNikki, the name is really "Blount", but it's pronounced B-L-U-N-T (not the "ou" sound as in "ouch"). The musician changed the spelling so that his name wouldn't be constantly mispronounced.
  • Alexandre from Santos, BrazilWell, I'm a Brazilian-born guy who was actually born in 1973, so this is a great song to me!
  • Nikki from Hell, MiDoes anyone know why some poeple spell Blunt as Blount and it's often in print too. I wanna know what James would have thought about it. Also, did you know that when he records his songs, he does it naked?
  • Ben from Gosford, AustraliaI like this song, I think most of us can relate to having the memory of someone we met once or somebody we used to know, and even though you don't see that person anymore, there was a certain point in history where you were close to varying degrees, and so whenever you think of that person now it's always back at that point in time again.
  • Zack from Lancaster, PaIt's almost like the video is showing a dream of a girl vs. reality (the 70's part the dream, now is the reality) As the song progresses through, he tells that he would, simply put, have a good time. At the very end of the video he gets so close to the girl and involved in his dream that he thinks he will get the girl, but reality kicks in for the last time and he realizes that she's never going to be his.
  • Vicky from Larissa, GreeceI don't like this song.. it's really BORING!! It gets into my nerves...
  • Richel from Santa Ana, Carecollection of "high" memories...
