|"The Lady in Red" is a song by Irish-British artist
Chris de Burgh. It was released in June 1986 as the second single
from the album
Into the Light. The song was a big hit and reached the number
one position in Canada, the UK, Ireland, the Flanders region of Belgium,
and Norway. It also reached number three in the United States during the
spring of 1987.
The song was written in reference to (though not specifically about) his wife Diane and was released on the album Into the Light. On the British TV series This Is Your Life, de Burgh said that the song was inspired by the memory of when he first saw Diane, and how men so often cannot even remember what their wives were wearing when they first met.

Thanks so much, Susan!
|Thank you, Carol. His
obit may not have been placed yet or perhaps his wife or brother haven't
gotten around to it yet. Be that as it may, your posting it will at
least get the news out to all of his former classmates (still around)
that would be interested.
Thank you, Jeff! I still have not found it, and my frustration is showing no signs of abating, but sometimes obituaries are not published at all, and that's just the way it is.

Words and Music by Chris de Burgh, 1986
(b. 15 Oct 1948)
I've never seen you looking so lovely as you did tonight
I've never seen you shine so bright
I've never seen so many men ask you if you wanted to dance
They're looking for a little romance, given half a chance
I have never seen that dress you're wearing
Or the highlights in your head that catch your eyes I have been blind
The lady in red is dancing with me cheek to cheek
There's nobody here, it's just you and me, It's where I wanna be
But I hardly know this beauty by my side
I'll never for get, the way you look tonight
I've never seen you looking so gorgeous as you did tonight
I've never seen you shine so bright you were amazing
I've never seen so many people want to be there by your side
And when you turned to me and smiled, It took my breath away
I have never had such a feeling
Such a feeling of complete and utter love, as I do tonight
The way you look tonight
I never will forget, the way you look tonight
The lady in red
The lady in red
The lady in red
My lady in red (I love you.)
