"Reminiscing" is a 1978 song written by Graeham Goble, and performed by Australian rock music group Little River Band. It remains their greatest success in the United States, peaking at #3 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and #10 on the Easy Listening chart. The song is about a couple reminiscing about the past, with certain music (such as Glenn Miller or Cole Porter tunes) reminding them of certain memories.
"Reminiscing" was given a BMI Five Million-Air award for five million plays on US radio--the highest achievement ever for any Australian popular song.
According to Albert Goldman's biography, John Lennon named "Reminiscing" as one of his favourite songs. May Pang, erstwhile girlfriend of Lennon, said "Oddly, with all the fantastic music he wrote, "our song" was Reminiscing by the Little River Band."
Jazz Nouveau (2012) released 'Reminiscing' which is a collection of Little River Band songs with a jazz/latin twist.
The Rise (Carl Riseley album) included a jazz cover of the song.
Australian band Madison Avenue covered the song during 2001. Their version became a top ten success in their home country.
The song was also used in the movie "Date Night" and was played in the background during the Las Vegas scene of "Knocked Up". An instrumental of the song is played during the "Strike Out" episode of the sitcom "King Of Queens". The song is included in the Soundtrack for the movie "Monsters Vs. Aliens", and was prominently featured in one of the movie's dance scenes.
