The original version of “Everlasting Love” was recorded in Nashville by Robert Knight, whose producers Buzz Cason and Mac Gayden aimed to record him in a Motown style with especial reference to the Four Tops and the Temptations. Ultimately “Everlasting Love” was released as an A-side for Knight and reached #13 in 1967. Subsequently, the song has reached the US Top 40 three times, most successfully by Carl Carlton, who peaked at #6 in 1974, with more moderate success afforded later remakes by Rex Smith and Rachel Sweet (#32/ 1981) and Gloria Estefan (#27/ 1995).

In the UK “Everlasting Love” was covered by the Love Affair and achieved #1 status in January 1968. Although that version eclipsed the Robert Knight original, which stalled at #40, Knight’s version was reissued in 1974 and reached #19 UK.

Pink Floyd – Learning To Fly

Music Video: Pink Floyd – Learning To Fly

“Learning to Fly” is the second song on Pink Floyd’s album A Momentary Lapse of Reason. The first single released from the album, it reached number 70 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart and number 1 on the Billboard Album Rock Tracks chart in September, 1987, remaining three consecutive weeks at the top position in the autumn of the same year. Meanwhile, the song failed to chart on the official U.K. top 40 singles charts.

The song was primarily written by David Gilmour, who developed the music from a 1986 demo by Jon Carin. The notable rhythm pattern at the beginning of the song was already present in the demo, and Carin stated that it was influenced by Steve Jansen or Yukihiro Takahashi.

The lyrics describe Gilmour’s thoughts on flying, for which he has a passion (being a licensed pilot with multiple ratings), though it has also been interpreted as a metaphor for beginning something new, experiencing a radical change in life, or, more specifically, Gilmour’s feelings about striking out as the new leader of Pink Floyd after the departure of Roger Waters. Gilmour confirmed the latter interpretation on the Pink Floyd 25th Anniversary Special in May 1992. Also an avid pilot, drummer Nick Mason’s voice can be heard at around the middle of the song. “Learning to Fly” was included on Pink Floyd’s greatest hits collection Echoes: The Best of Pink Floyd.
