From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

"Try to Remember" is a song from the musical comedy The Fantasticks. It is the first song sung in the show, to get the audience to imagine what the sparse set suggests. Its lyrics, written by Tom Jones, famously rhyme "remember" with "September", "so tender", and "December". Harvey Schmidt composed the music.

"Try to Remember" was originally sung by Jerry Orbach in the Original Off Broadway production of The Fantasticks. "Try To Remember" made the Billboard Hot 100 pop chart three times in 1965 in versions by Ed Ames, Roger Williams and The Brothers Four. However, in 1975, Gladys Knight & The Pips had a huge international hit with their version of "Try to Remember", combining it into a medley with a cover of Barbra Streisand's "The Way We Were". It reached #11 on the Hot 100 chart. In Knight's version, she recited some of the lyrics from "Try To Remember" in spoken-word fashion before beginning to sing "The Way We Were". Harry Belafonte has recorded the song multiple times. The Greek singer Nana Mouskouri also recorded it in three languages: German, French, and Italian.

"Try to Remember" was also used in the soundtrack of the film The Man Who Fell to Earth and the Hong Kong film City of Glass (Boli zhi cheng).
