...sehr gut...
****
Unschuldig und süß ... mehr nicht, # 2 in den USA 1972.
*****
In diesem geradezu als "berührend" zu bezeichnenden Song begleitet ein Vater sein Töchterchen singender- und pfeifenderweise in den Schlaf. Heute ein Klassiker des Easy Listening-Genres und, zusammen mit "Get Down", der grösste Chart-Erfolg von Gilbert O'Sullivan (Rang 1 in UK; Rang 2 in den USA).

Schööööön, aber mehr nicht.
******
'Catch up my bread, 'cause there is lots of it'

Schön, noch immer. Gilbert sings about babysitting for his manager's daughter Clair and this inspired him to write this song. Quite successful too. It topped my charts for 4 weeks from December 9, 1972 on.
****
ganz netter pop-song ohne mich tiefer zu berühren
******
ja, auch hier seh ichs so wie die Mehrheit.. guter Song, sehr schöner Song.. eher 6 als 5..
******
Kleine Popperle der 70er Jahre.
******
Wunderschön
******
einer meiner lieblingssongs. GOS hat viele schöne songs geschrieben. aber CLAIR ist wohl der schönste
****
der mann am piano....
wie nett...
******
Einfach wunderschöööön
****
"Get down" fand ich besser.
****
Gut.
*****
▓ Een mooie ♪ plaat van één van mijn lievelingszangers "Gilbert O'Sullivan" uit oktober 1972 !!! "Clair" stond 11 weken in de Nederlandse Top 40 van 1972 & 1973 !!! Het hoogste was een plaats # 4 !!! Ook niet slecht natuurlijk !!!
****
schöne, aber sicher nicht beste scheibe des iren... einer seiner #1 hits!
******
Wunderschön
*****
Gehört zu seinen 5 besten Titeln! Eine 5er-Wertung ist daher auch selbstverständlich.
*****
...sehr gut...
******
La meilleure chanson de Gilbert O'Sullivan.

krass schön :o
***
weder 1972 noch heute
******
1972/73 bis heute - Spitze von Sullivan
*****
easy-listening klassiker...kindheitserinnerungen, kam damals oft im radio
****
Kann dem Lied einiges abgewinnen - aber eben auch nicht allzu viel.
******
Super!
*****
Für mich der beste Song von Ihm.
****
putzig-friedvoll
******
er hat das richtige Feeling

Ganz in Ordnung!
******
Eine der schönsten Balladen überhaupt.
****
gut
*****
wirklich schöne Popnummer von 1972: relativ stark an die Beatles angelehnt und hat auch etwas Chanson-Artiges...gemütlliche Nummer zum Ausspannen - 5*...
******
Sein allerstärkster!
*
auch nicht viel besser als das grausame Get Down...schrecklichste 70er-Jahre Mucke mit ganz ganz widerlicher Geräuschkulisse
****
Mooie plaat van Gilbert O'Sullivan. Kwam vorig jaar opnieuw binnen in de Radio 2 Top 2000 op #1808.
******
Wieder einmal ein perfekter Song des Iren und verdientermassen eine # 1 in UK.
****
Könnte ich mir in einem französischsprachigen Film vorstellen; okay
*****
Gut.
*****
Ich hatte eigentlich immer Schwierigkeite mit O'Sullivans Liedern, weil mir seine Stimme nicht sonderlich gefällt. Bei diesem Lied war das dagegen immer schon anders. Das passt zusammen.
*****
unbeschwert mit dem gewissen Schuss Melancholie - das kommt super! satte 5!
*****
Sehr gut.
****
Goed maar niet super. Heeft betere nummers gemaakt
*****
Ein schönes Lied
******
Een mooi nummer.
*****
Lekker nostalgisch nummer. Bevalt mij nog altijd goed.
*****
Schöner Song
******
Zeitloser Song und einer der Besten von Gilbert.
****
Netter Radio-Hit
******
wunderschön

...ach du süsse Clair....

*****
Muy buena.

Vreselijk.

Nette klassieker van Gilbert O'Sullivan waarmee hij eind 1972/begin 1973 vijftien weken genoteerd stond in de Vlaamse charts. Hij bereikte met "Clair" zelfs de eerste plaats!
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EoxSHYfwXeA

Très doux.

Also, mir ist das zu seicht. 3+

Ich liebe traurige melancholische Songs ... wie diesen.

Süsse Ballade

Klassiker

Gefällt mir nicht so sehr von ihm...

sehr schön

CDN: #1 (2 weeks), 1972
USA: #2, 1972
*****
Schöner Klassiker!
*****
Mooi plaatje dat zelfs jaren na datum nog werkt.
***
Mag ich nicht.
****
Netter 70er, aber auch nicht mehr.
******
goodold70 hat eigentlich alles schon gesagt! Ein wunderschöner Easy Listening Track, der aber auch ein bisschen traurig klingt! Höre den Song gerade nebenbei und wollte erst eine 5 geben, aber als die Mundharmonika einsetzt dachte ich mir : Nein, das ist eine 6!

War Top in Irland : 5 Wochen eine #1 zwischen Okt/Nov 1972!
*****
mit Erinnerungsbonus
*****

Sehr schöner Song. War seine erste No. 1 in England.
