David Bowie Love You Till Tuesday-Did You Ever Have A Dream (1967 The Netherlands) estimated value € 235,00

“Love You till Tuesday” is a song written and performed by David Bowie. The first version of the song, recorded in February 1967, was included on Bowie’s debut album. A second version, released as a single, was recorded on 3 June 1967 and released on 14 July 1967. The single garnered good notices from the music press but, like his earlier singles, failed to break into the British charts. It was his final new release for Deram Records. Bowie’s 1969 showpiece film Love You till Tuesday took its name from the song, which also featured over the opening credits.

The critics of Record Retailer, Record Mirror and Melody Maker all praised the single. In a column reviewing recently released singles, Bowie influence Syd Barrett told Melody Maker in May 1967, “Yeah, it’s a joke number. Jokes are good…I think people will like the bit about it being Monday, when in fact it was Tuesday. Very chirpy, but I don’t think my toes were tapping at all.”

The single version was a complete remake of the original, including a new vocal, a string arrangement by Ivor Raymonde and an excerpt of “Hearts and Flowers” from Czibulka’s Winter Marching.

Other versions
A 1966 demo version recorded by Bowie has circulated on bootlegs. Bowie performed the song on a Radio Session for the Top Gear BBC show on 18 December 1967. This version appears on the 2010 David Bowie: Deluxe Edition re-release of his first album. Bowie also recorded a German-language version in 1969, entitled “Lieb’ Dich Bis Dienstag.” He also recorded “Mit mir in Deinem Traum”, a partly German-language version of “When I Live My Dream”. Both versions have circulated on the internet as MP3 files.

 

Love You Till Tuesday (single version) Lyrics

Just look through your window, look who sits outside
Little me is waiting, standing through the night
When you walk out through your door I’ll wave my flag and shout
Ohh, beautiful baby
My burning desire started on Sunday
Give me your heart and I’ll love you till Tuesday

Da da da dum
Da da da dum
Da da da dum
Da da da dum

Who’s that hiding in the apple tree, clinging to a branch
Don’t be afraid it’s only me, hoping for a little romance
If you lie beneath my shade, I’ll keep you nice and cool

Ohh, beautiful baby
I was very lonely till I met you on Sunday
My passion’s never-ending and I’ll love you till Tuesday

Da da da dum
Da da da dum
Da da da dum
Da da da dum
Da da da dum
Da da da dum
Da da da dum

Let the wind blow through your hair, be nice to the big blue sea
Don’t be afraid of the man in the moon, because it’s only me
I shall always watch you until my love runs dry

Ohh, beautiful baby
My heart’s a flame, I’ll love you till Tuesday
My head’s in a whirl and I’ll love you till Tuesday
Love, love, love, love you till Tuesday
Love, love, love, love you till Tuesday
Da da da dum
Da da da dum
Da da da dum
Da da da dum
Da da da dum
Da da da dum
Da da da dum
Da da da dum
Da da da dum
Da da da dum
Da da da dum

Well, I might stretch it till Wednesday
