With or Without You

“My tears are flowing for you
As my mind wonders and heart beats...
I feel like nothing without you...
I know I'm nothing without you...

- Gary R. Hess

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

   This U2 song is from 1987 - a bit new for our tastes, but I hope you enjoy it anyway.

BONUS - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XmSdTa9kaiQ - With or Without You - U2, 1987


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

"With or Without You" is a song by the Irish rock band U2. It is the third track from their 1987 album, The Joshua Tree, and was released as the album's first single on 21 March 1987. The song was the group's most successful single at the time, becoming their first number-one hit in both the United States and Canada by topping the Billboard Hot 100 for three weeks and the RPM national singles chart for one week.

"With or Without You" features sustained guitar parts played by guitarist The Edge with a prototype of the Infinite Guitar, along with vocals by lead singer Bono and a bassline by bassist Adam Clayton. The song originated from a demo recorded in late 1985 that the group continued to work on throughout The Joshua Tree sessions. Ostensibly a troubled love song, the track's lyrics were inspired by Bono's conflicting feelings about the lives he led as a musician and domestic man.

Critics praised the song upon its release. It is frequently performed on the band's tours, and it has appeared on a number of their compilation albums and concert films. "With or Without You" is U2's second most frequently covered song.[1] In 2010, Rolling Stone magazine placed the song at number 132 on their list of "The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time"...[2]

Bono wrote the lyrics while struggling to reconcile his responsibilities as both a married man and a musician. His wanderlust in belonging to a musical act was often at odds with his domestic life.[6] While writing the lyrics, he realized that neither facet of his life defined him, but rather the tension between the two did. He explains that the final lyric is about "torment" and how repressing desires only makes them stronger...[6]

    Thanks so much, Susan!


 From Renee Helterbran Benton ('59) of VA -  01/30/17:

It would be helpful if you would release these (Newsletters) one by one as completed instead of letting them pile up to 19!

   Thank you, Renee, I agree! That's the way I did it ten years or so ago. There are a great many things I was able to do then which elude me now. Spending ten to twelve hours at the keyboard is but one of them.

   Last year's opening Newsletter contained this entry on the subject:


    From Michael Jeffers ('60) of VA - 12/05/15 (but only just discovered - ?!?):
Dear Sweet Carol,

You need to take care of yourself and not feel like you have to publish the NNHS news every day. We both come from a time when daily life was much slower and easier to keep up with. So, coming from someone 5 years your senior, I feel you should limit your updates to once a week or maybe every other week. (That's the pace I go today and I hope it doesn't wear me out.)
We always listened to our elders.

Michael

   GIGGLES! Thank you so much, Michael Darlin'! I really appreciate your concern, and I always try to listen to my elders.

   As strange as it may seem, it's actually harder on me to limit the number of issues. I become confused, disoriented, and discombobulated, and that's never a good thing. I think it will be quite unnoticeable to the average reader, but in just a few days (barring any necessary strenuous thinking or flare-ups in the html code), I think I will have reached a point where each regular Newsletter will only require 45 to 90 minutes to produce, and that's a marked improvement!

   Now as for the announcements? Even with the simplified methods I have recently implemented, they still have the power to throw me into a tizzy and make me a nervous wreck, so I'll propose a compromise. Suppose I continue with daily Newsletters, but only bi-weekly announcements - say on Tuesdays and Fridays?

   Happy New Year, Gorgeous!
 

 

   I'll try to do better, Renee, but when I fail, as I inevitably will, I'll refer you to the story of The Old Gray Mare.


From Lloyd Nelson ('61) of VA - 01/31/17 - "OLD YEARBOOKS":

Dear Carol,
Sorry for the delay in responding to your email but have been very busy.  You said you are interested in the 1949 yearbook of   Mary Sue's ('52) and because of the age difference I was wondering how you knew my sister?

 
Lloyd

   Ah, easy-peasy, Lloyd! Mary Sue was my incredibly patient Senior Department Teacher at Trinity Methodist Church back in The Olden Days! You wouldn't want to say that we were naughty little rascals, but... well, yes. Yes, we were!


From Carlene Matthews Vannoy ('60 / '64) of VA - 01/28/17:
 

 

 

   YEAH, THAT! Thanks, Carlene!

 
 


 From David Whitley ('67) of VA - 01/30/17:
 

 

 

 Thanks, David!

FINALLY:

From www.ajokeaday.com - 01/31/16:

After 20 years of marriage, a couple was lying in bed one evening, when the wife felt her husband begin to touch her in ways he hadn't in quite some time.

It almost tickled as his fingers started at her neck, and then began moving down past the small of her back. He then slid his hand across her shoulders and neck, slowly worked it down one side, then the other, stopping just over her lower stomach.

He then proceeded to place his hand on her left inner arm, caressed downward again, working down her side, passed gently over and then in between her buttock and down her leg to her calf. Then, he proceeded up her inner thigh, stopping just at the uppermost portion of her leg. He continued in the same manner on her right side, then suddenly stopped, rolled over and became silent.

As she had become quite aroused by this caressing, she asked in a loving voice, "That was wonderful. Why did you stop?"

"I found the remote," he said.

With or Without You

Written by
Bono (Paul Hewson), The Edge (Dave Evans), Adam Clayton, and Larry Mullen, Jr.

Recorded by U2, 1987


See the stone set in your eyes
See the thorn twist in your side
I wait for you

Sleight of hand and twist of fate
On a bed of nails she makes me wait
And I wait without you

With or without you
With or without you

Through the storm we reach the shore
You give it all but I want more
And I'm waiting for you

With or without you
With or without you
I can't live
With or without you

And you give yourself away
And you give yourself away
And you give
And you give
And you give yourself away

My hands are tied
My body bruised, she's got me with
Nothing to win and
Nothing left to lose

And you give yourself away
And you give yourself away
And you give
And you give
And you give yourself away

With or without you
With or without you
I can't live
With or without you

With or without you
With or without you
I can't live
With or without you
With or without you
