On November 4th, 1972, Johnny Nash started a three week run at No. 1 on the US singles chart with ‘I Can See Clearly Now’, his only US chart topper, it made No. 5 in the UK.
It was covered by many artists throughout the years, including a 1993 hit version by Jimmy Cliff, who re-recorded it for the motion picture soundtrack of Cool Runnings, where it reached the top 20 at No. 18 on the Billboard Hot 100.
