“Come back to me in dreams; that I may give
Pulse for pulse, breath for breath:
Speak low, lean low,
As long ago, my love, how long ago.” 

Christina Rossetti
(05 Dec 1830 - 29 Dec 1894)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates, 

   I love this golden oldies - such as this one from 1962!

BONUS - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OZ-bdlPqJME - Remember Then - Larry Chance and the Earls, 1962


From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Larry_Chance_and_the_Earls

Larry Chance and the Earls were a popular recording group from the 1960s formed in The Bronx, New York. In 1962, their single "Remember Then" was a hit, and "Life Is But a Dream," "Never" and "I Believe" also charted. As the oldies revival scene started a strong run in the early 1970s and 1980s, the Earls became one of the most requested groups in the doo-wop genre. They are still actively performing and remain on the oldies circuit...

The Earls are one of the New York City doo-wop success stories. Discovered singing on the street corner in front of subway station, the Earls took the original black doo-wop street corner harmony sound, and refined and expanded it for new audiences.

Larry Chance was the driving force behind the group's formation and success. Larry grew up in Philadelphia and attended high school with Chubby Checker, Frankie Avalon, and Danny Rapp of Danny and the Juniors. But it was not until 1957 that he moved with his parents to the Bronx after high school, that his musical career took off...

FINALLY:

From http://www.ajokeaday.com - 01/04/14:
 
A pregnant woman was involved in a car accident and fell into a deep coma.

Asleep for nearly six months, she awoke and saw that she was no longer pregnant. Frantically, she asked the doctor about her baby.

The doctor replied, "Ma'am, you had twins! A boy and a girl. The babies are fine. Your brother came in and named them."

The woman thought to herself, "Oh no, not my brother -- he's an idiot!" Expecting the worst, she asked the doctor, "Well, what's the girl's name?"

"Denise," the doctor says.

The new mother thought, "Wow, that's not a bad name! Guess I was wrong about my brother. I like Denise!" Then she asked the doctor, "What's the boy's name?"

The doctor replied, DeNephew.

Remember Then

Written by Beverly Ross, Tony Powers and Stan Vincent

Recorded by Larry Chance and The Earls, 1962


[Backups:]
Re-mem-mem, re-mem-mem-mem-ber oop-shoop
Re-mem-mem, re-mem-mem-mem-ber oop-shoop
Re-mem-mem, re-mem-mem-mem-ber oop-shoop then
Then, remember then

[Mixture]
[Backups continue with intro while lead sings a series of "whoa oh-oh's" and a "Remember then"]

That night we fell in love
Beneath the stars above
That was a lovely summer night
pyramid Remember then, then, then, then, then

[Mixture again]

Summer's over
Our love is over
To lose that love was such a sin
pyramid Remember then, then, then, then, then

[Backups:] Remember, re-mem-mem, mem-mem-mem-mem-ber
[Lead:] Our love is in the past
[Backups:] patta-past
[Lead:] Oh, has it gone so fast
[Backups:] patta-past
[Lead:] Why couldn't our love last?
[Backups:] Can't last
[Backups:] Wop, wop, patta patta pop-pop, shoo-wop-dah bop bop, ooh

I'm broken-hearted now
Since we have parted now
My mind wanders now and then
pyramid Remember then, then, then, then, then

[Backups:] Re-mem-mem, re-mem-mem-mem-ber
[Mixture again]

[New mixture Backups sing several "oop shoop, shang-a lang, jigga bop's"
and the lead does "ahh-ooh-ooh" and other falsetto variations]

[Fade]
