Music Monday: Wonderful Tonight

| Music

Today’s an oldie but goodie – Wonderful Tonight by Eric Clapton.

This is one of my favorite songs from the 90’s – after all of the ‘NSYNC songs of course 🙂

I think I like it so much because my family was always big on music, and Eric Clapton was always playing in our house, he was one of my dad’s favorites. That’s why I used this song as my dance with him, but I think it would be an amazing first dance song too.
Here’s some vintage footage of Mr. Clapton singing this song live:

It’s late in the evening
She’s wondering what clothes to wear
She puts on her make up
And brushes her long blonde hair
And then she asks me
Do I look alright
And I say yes, you look wonderful tonight

We go a party
And everyone turns to see
This beautiful lady
That’s walking around with me
And then she asks me
Do you feel alright
And I say yes, I feel wonderful tonight

I feel wonderful
Because I see the love light in your eyes
And the wonder of it all
Is that you just don’t realize
How much I love you

It’s time to go home now
And I’ve got an aching head
So I give her the car keys
She helps me to bed
And then I tell her
As I turn out the light
I say my darling, you were wonderful tonight
Oh my darling, you were wonderful tonight

The downloadable track sounds much more finished, you can buy it here.

Happy Monday!
