If you should find you miss the sweet and tender love we used to share
Just go back to the places where we used to go and I’ll be there

The Six Best Renditions Of “(There’s) Always Something There To Remind Me”

I walk along the city streets you used to walk along with me
And every step I take reminds me of just how we used to be
Well, how can I forget you, girl?
When there is always something there to remind me
Always something there to remind me

As shadows fall, I pass a small cafe where we would dance at night
And I can’t help recalling how it felt to kiss and hold you tight
Well, how can I forget you, girl?
When there is always something there to remind me
Always something there to remind me

Oh whoa ooh whoa ooh whoa oh

If you should find you miss the sweet and tender love we used to share
Just go back to the places where we used to go and I’ll be there
Well, how can I forget you, girl?
When there is always something there to remind me
Always something there to remind me

I was born to love her, and I will never be free
You’ll always be a part of me
‘Cause there is always something there to remind me

Always something there to remind me

Always something there to remind me


Q: Once and for all, PLEASE tell me who was first to sing the song ALWAYS SOMETHING THERE TO REMIND ME. I hear so many people on TV and radio say different names.

A: (THERE’S) ALWAYS SOMETHING THERE TO REMIND ME was originally recorded as a demo by Dionne Warwick in 1963, making her the very first to record the song. However, it first charted for Lou Johnson, reaching #49 in 1964. The chart versions that followed were by Sandie Shaw (#52, 1965 and again in 1985), (Dionne Warwick (#65, 1968), R.B. Greaves (#27, 1970) and finally the most popular version by Naked Eyes (#8, 1983). Other versions around the world include renderings by Barbara Mason, Blue Swede, Braid, Brenda Lee, Del-Rays (with Michael McDonald), Don Williams, Eddy Mitchell, Edwin Rutten, Four Seasons, Hippos, Jay & the Americans, Johnny Mathis. Jose Feliciano, La Lupe, Lou Christie, Martha & The Vandellas, Peggy Lee, Percy Faith, Ted Neeley and Wayne Fontana.
