Program Notes

On a Clear Day (You Can See Forever) is a song recorded by American vocalist Barbra Streisand from the official soundtrack album to the 1970 American film On a Clear Day You Can See Forever. On a Clear Day (You Can See Forever) was written by Burton Lane and Alan Jay Lerner and produced by Wally Gold.

The track received positive reviews from music critics, with many of them listing it as a highlight on On a Clear Day You Can See Forever. Three variations of the song appear on the soundtrack: the original version sung by co-star Yves Montand, the reprise version sung by Streisand, and an orchestral version performed alongside a live chorus.

The show concerns a woman who has ESP and has been reincarnated. Quirky Daisy Gamble sees herself as an unremarkable person and has low self-esteem, even though she can (1) make plants grow remarkably, (2) predict when a telephone will ring or someone will drop in, and (3) tell where to find an object that someone else is looking for. The musical received three Tony Award nominations.
