Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Lost memories
Faded pictures
Can you drive me back
To this very moment

Julia
Alexander
Where did you all go?
Love

Old memory
From the limbo
From the night

Lost memory
Coming back
Remember the sun
Remember the colors

Julia
Alexander




Let me feel you all
Love

Overall Meaning

In the song "Sunday Night 1987" by M83, the lyrics seem to be referencing a nostalgic yearning for the past. The repeated references to lost memories and faded pictures suggest that the singer is looking back on a time that has since been lost to them. They ask if someone can "drive them back to this very moment," indicating a desire to relive a specific time in their life.


The names Julia and Alexander are also mentioned repeatedly throughout the song. It's possible that these are specific people the singer is remembering from their past, perhaps individuals they were once close to. The last line "let me feel you all, love," suggests a deep longing for connection, perhaps with those they have lost touch with over time.


The use of the past tense throughout the song, such as "Where did you all go?" and "From the night," further emphasizes the theme of remembering something that has already passed. The final lines, "remember the sun, remember the colors," add an almost bittersweet quality, as if the singer is lamenting the loss of a time when things seemed simpler and more vibrant.


Overall, "Sunday Night 1987" is a wistful and introspective song that captures the feeling of looking back on a time that can never be regained.

There was this one time , I had suicidal thoughts because of the reality I was going through ,it was on that day that M83 released this album and I came across this track , and the moment the harmonica hit ... damn ,that harmonica .. I just felt like all the negative energy escaped my body and I somehow convinced myself that there is a better life waiting for me in the future .Since then Ive made a promise to myself that I would work hard so that I would be able to afford to watch M83 perform live . I’ve been a fan of M83 since 2007 soon after they released Digital Shades vol 1, and became an even bigger fan after the release of “Hurry up we’re dreaming” . It would be a dream come true if I could watch the band live .

@RamdinCG Good luck, hope the COVID thing didn't affect your goals that much. At least, we are in December, the year is almost over, sure, it was a horrible start of decade, but, we should not let negative thoughts invade us. If we managed to survive, we could make our situation a lot better.
