01/26/15 - NNHS Newsletter - This Magic Moment

And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets
are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don't believe in magic will never find it.”

- Roald Dahl
(13 Sept 1916 - 23 Nov 1990)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

   I think we could all use a little magic in our lives right about now.....

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

"This Magic Moment" is a song composed by lyricist Doc Pomus and pianist Mort Shuman. It is one of their best-known songs.[2] It was recorded first by Ben E. King and the Drifters[1] and made No. 16 on the Billboard Hot 100 during 1960. The version by Jay and the Americans in 1969 went to No. 6, earning gold record status. The song is used in David M. Evans' film The Sandlot and was also featured in David Chase's television show The Sopranos in the episode "Soprano Home Movies". The session musicians Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller hired to play on this record include Phil Bodner on sax, Ernie Hayes on piano, Bucky Pizzarelli and George Barnes on guitar, George Duvivier on bass, and Shep Sheppard on drums.

Lou Reed's version, from a Doc Pomus tribute album, Till the Night is Gone, featured in David Lynch's film Lost Highway. It was also covered by horror punk music band the Misfits for the album Project 1950 and by indie rock band the Mountain Goats for their first cassette release Taboo VI: The Homecoming.

From My Friend, Susan, of NC - 01/25/15:

Patience means active waiting and enduring. It means staying with something and doing all that we can—working, hoping, and exercising faith; bearing hardship with fortitude, even when the desires of our hearts are delayed. Patience is not simply enduring; it is enduring well!

- Dieter F. Uchtdorf

This Magic Moment

Music by Mort Shuman (12 Nov 1936 - 02 Nov 1991); Words by Doc Pomus (27 June 1925 - 14 Mar 1991)

Recorded by Ben E. King (b. 28 Sept 1938) with The Drifters, 1960


This magic moment
So different and so new
Was like any other
Until I met you
And then it happened
It took me by surprise
I knew that you felt it too
I could see it by the look in your eyes

Sweeter than wine
Softer than a summer's night
Everything I want, I have
Whenever I hold you tight

This magic moment,
While your lips are close to mine,
Will last forever,
Forever, 'til the end of time

So why won't you dance with me?
Why won't you dance with me?

This magic moment
So different and so new
Was like any other
Until I met you

And then it happened
It took me by surprise
I knew that you felt it too
I could see it by the look in your eyes

Sweeter than wine
Softer than a summer's night
Everything I want, I have
Whenever I hold you tight

My dear
My heart's all aglow
Could this be magic
Loving you so.
Could this be magic
My dear
Having your love
My prayers were answered
So far from above.
I thought it would be
Just a memory
To linger my heart in pain
But too much pride
I opened up my eyes
And I'm with you dear once again
Could this be magic
My dear
Having your love
If this is magic
Then magic is mine.
Could this be magic
Then magic is mine.
