“It's not what you look at that matters, it's what you see.”

- Henry David Thoreau
(12 July 1817 - 06  May 1862)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates, 

    What a fun Golden Oldie!

BONUS #1 - Just One Look - Doris Troy, 1963

BONUS #2 - Just One Look - The Hollies, 1964

BONUS #2 - Just One Look - Linda Ronstadt, @ 1978


"Just One Look" was a hit single co-written and sung by American R&B singer Doris Troy in 1963. The song peaked at #10 in the U.S. singles charts.

Details vary as to how the single came to be released on Atlantic Records. According to the book Billboard Book of One-Hit Wonders[2], James Brown saw Troy performing in a nightclub (under her then-stage name Doris Payne), and introduced her to Atlantic.[1] According to a more recent and detailed story in Soulful Divas[3], Payne recorded a studio demo of the song and took it to Sue Records first, but their lack of response led her to offer it to Jerry Wexler at Atlantic, where the label released the demo unchanged.[1]

The single's release was the first time she started using "Doris Troy" as her stage name, though her pen name remained Doris Payne.[1]

"Just One Look" became a UK hit via a version by the Hollies which reached #2 in the spring of 1964. Although not a major US hit in its original release, the Hollies' "Just One Look" marked the first appearance of the Hollies on the Billboard Hot 100 at #98 and a US re-issue in 1967 saw the Hollies' "Just One Look" rise as high as #44. The Beatle tribute band, "The Buggs", also recorded an obscure version (retitled "Soho Mash") on their 1964 Coronet album, "The Beetle Beat".

Anne Murray remade "Just One Look" for her 1974 Love Song album and the track was issued as a single that October to become a minor Billboard Hot 100 entry at #86. Linda Ronstadt remade "Just One Look" for her 1978 Living in the USA album; issued as the album's third single in February 1979, the track just fell short of the Top 40 with a #44 peak.

Other versions of "Just One Look" are those by Lynda Carter, Faith Hope and Charity (#38 UK January 1976), Mark Farner, Lulu, Harry Nilsson on his 1976 album …That's the Way It Is and Klaus Nomi on his 1982 album Simple Man.

Troy's version was featured in a 1997 television commercial for Pepsi starring Cindy Crawford that aired during Super Bowl XXXI. Her version was also heard on DTV Disney set to The Wind in the Willows segment of The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad.

  From Jimmy Dick ('65) of FL - 01/09/20, 4:39 AM:
  Good morning on a Thursday as we maintain a leisurely pace down from the low foothills leading to Friday afternoon's "Here Comes the Weekend" celebration. But don't get cocky, for after an easy back to exercise break-in, we'll make it more strenuous next week.

As I prepare for today's endeavor, I start with my morning hello to all of you, sitting at my computer with God's nectar, a cup of good coffee in my hand to open the day. Next, I will do my stretching exercises to loosen up my old arthritic bones which makes physical activity doable again after a good night's sleep. And then it's time for the horses, amazing creatures with grace and beauty, yet sometimes spooked by the smallest of things. Once they're fed and my other morning chores are completed as well, it will be back to working on my new book and the occasional comment here as well.

... I'll try and find a few good pictures and some encouraging words to keep all of our motors tuned and running. So, rise and shine friends on a chilly morning, we've got life to live and since all who read this have been blessed by God with another day, praise Him for His love and His grace. Consider yourselves very blessed the moment you opened your eyes this morning. Now go have a good one.

   Thank you, Jimmy!

Memories of times gone by...

I think you will like this video which is about 3 and 1/2 minutes long. Also has a nice soundtrack with the title song Once Upon A Long Time Ago which fits in with the subject.

   OOH! Thank you, Wayne!

From - 01/08/19:

A first-grader came to the ophthalmology office where I work to have his vision checked. He sat down and I turned off the lights.

Then I switched on a projector that flashed the letters F, Z and B on a screen. I asked the boy what he saw.

Without hesitation he replied, "Consonants."

Just one look and I fell so hard
In love with you, oh-oh, oh-oh
I found out how good it feels
To have your love, oh-oh, oh-oh
Say you will, will be mine
Forever and always, oh-oh, oh-oh
Just one look and I knew
That you were my only one
Oh oh-oh oh!

I thought I was dreamin' but I was wrong, yeah, yeah, yeah
Oh, but-a, I'm gonna keep on schemin'
Till I can a-make you, make you my own!

So you see, I really care
Without you I'm nothin', oh-oh, oh-oh
Just one look and I know
I'll get you someday, oh-oh, oh-oh

Just one look, that's all it took
Just one look, that's all it took
Just one look, that's all it took
