The instrumental title track to Tom Waits' debut LP was also called Closing Time.
At my Auntie Vera's 100th birthday party, she asked the piano player to play the song that my Uncle George sang to her when they were courting 75 years ago, Have I Told You Lately That I Love You. The piano player played and sang the Van Morrison song that Rod Stewart had a hit with. Vera reached over and whispered to me, "That's a nice song, but it's not the one that George used to sing to me." The next day, before we made the long drive home, Maggie talked me into playing the Have I Told You Lately That I Love Yousong that Scotty Wiseman wrote in 1944 while a few of us sang it to Vera.
When Todd Snider sings his song B, Double E, Double R U N, Beer Run, he often tells this story:
-1962 Martin D-21 -1950 Gibson LG1 -1958 Goya M-26 -1974 Yamaha FG75 high strung -A number of banjos, mandolins, Autoharps, ukuleles, dulcimers, mouth harps, a Tele clone and various other stuff. -I own a fiddle, but only play it when Maggie and the cats are all out of the house.
Yes it was. The song was written for the movie and the song had the same title. Little piece of trivia.....I believe that was Dolly Parton's first movie as well.
that why Eastmans title was changed...
I checked the wikipidia with my computer thing. The change was done voluntarily and not for legal reasons, to avoid confusion as the songs came out almost at the exact same time. (What are the odds?). Sheena's song was obviously released in the UK and Dolly's song was released in the U.S. Both songs crossed the pond a little after.
