MEMORY - Cats Song
 
"'Memory" is a show tune from the 1981 Andrew Lloyd Webber musical Cats sung by the character Grizabella, a one-time glamour cat who is now a shell of her former self. The song is a nostalgic remembrance of her glorious past and a declaration of her wishes to start a new life. Sung briefly in the first act and in full near the end of the show, "Memory" is the climax of the musical, and by far its most popular and well-known song. The lyric, written by Cats director Trevor Nunn, was based on T. S. Eliot's poems "Preludes" and "Rhapsody on a Windy Night""
 
 
"Memory" has been covered by numerous musical acts. Here's Barbra Streisand -- she recorded "Memory" for her 1981 album Memories:
 
Enjoy, s'il vous plaît.
