The song ‘You Are My Sunshine’ has been around for about seventy years according to Wikipedia, and as far as I know, and I guess almost certainly, the sunshine has been used metaphorically for a human.
After my historic May wedding to the sun in Gretna Green we’ve enjoyed a wonderful summer, with a long honeymoon period, a cooling off period, and an Indian Summer rekindling of the old passionate heat.
So I’d like to here and now bring you the first version of You Are My Sunshine I do believe, is introduced and intended to not be a metaphor, but is indeed truly meant for our sun; the star of our solar system; and a top ten star in our Milky Way galaxy.
I could’ve recorded it myself, but I think this version will sound better, provides publicity to a good singer, and is of course easier for me! But please imagine it’s me singing to the sun… at least once, while appreciating Jasmine Thompson’s talent the rest of the time!!
Disclaimer: I don’t know Jasmine Thompson at all, and she had nothing to do with this blog. This video was the first suggestion on YouTube when I searched the song.
