Sunday Love Songs: Mike Masse’s “Wonderful Tonight” ( E. Clapton cover)

I apologize for this Sunday’s post coming so late into the day/night.

Wonderful tonight 
Composed by Eric Clapton ( 1976)
Covered & performed by independent artists
~ Mike Mass ~Jeff Hall ~ Tom Hall ~

Notes from Wikipedia:

Wonderful Tonight” is a ballad written by Eric Clapton. It was included on Clapton’s 1977 album Slowhand. Clapton wrote the song about Pattie Boyd, and it is mentioned in her autobiographical book Wonderful Tonight: George Harrison, Eric Clapton, and Me. The song was a modest hit upon its release, charting at #16 Billboard Hot 100 and #39 Adult Contemporary in the US and #30 in the UK.

On 7 September 1976, Clapton wrote “Wonderful Tonight” for Boyd while waiting for her to get ready to attend Paul and Linda McCartney‘s annual Buddy Holly party. Of “Wonderful Tonight”, Boyd would say: “For years it tore at me. To have inspired Eric, and George before him, to write such music was so flattering. ‘Wonderful Tonight’ was the most poignant reminder of all that was good in our relationship, and when things went wrong it was torture to hear it.”

Acoustic Saturdays with Mike Masse “Now That I Know”

Mike Masse my newest study was introduced to me by a friend from Argentina. It amazes me how music knows no borders. I love that!

This Mike Masse acoustic is an original that I will let his own words speak of: ” Thinking through what’s ahead after a trusting and loving relationship starts to die demands a nostalgic longing for what once was. So the question is…can you go back…return to the feelings that once were?” ~ Mike Masse

More of Mikes’ music will be following. He has become a favorite of Barefoot Music. Thanks to my friend who discovered him for me.
