All My Loving

You can't stop loving or wanting to love because when its right it's the best thing in the world.
When you're in a relationship and its good, even if nothing else in your life is right,
you feel like your whole world is complete.

 - Keith Sweat
(b. 22 July 1961)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,  

   This was the only possible theme for today's Newsletter (as, if you don't remember, you shall soon learn)! 

BONUS - All My Loving - The Beatles


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

"All My Loving" is a song by the Beatles, written by Paul McCartney[2] (credited to Lennon–McCartney), from the 1963 album With The Beatles. Though it was not released as a single in the United Kingdom or the United States, it drew considerable radio airplay, prompting EMI to issue it as the title track of an EP.[3] The song was released as a single in Canada, where it became a number one hit. The Canadian single was imported into the US in enough quantities to peak at number 45 on the Billboard Hot 100 in April 1964.[4][5] It was the first song most Americans ever heard the group sing as it was the opening song on their debut on Ed Sullivan Show on February 9, 1964.

According to journalist Bill Harry, McCartney thought of the lyrics whilst shaving,[6] though McCartney told biographer Barry Miles that he wrote them while on a tour bus.[2] He also said, "It was the first song I'd ever written the words first. I never wrote words first, it was always some kind of accompaniment. I've hardly ever done it since either."[2] The lyrics follow the "letter song" model as used on "P.S. I Love You",[3] the B-side of their first single. After arriving at the location of the gig, he wrote the music on a piano backstage.[2]

McCartney originally envisioned it as a country & western song, and George Harrison added a Nashville-style guitar solo.[2][3] John Lennon's rhythm guitar track uses quickly strummed triplets similar to "Da Doo Ron Ron" by The Crystals, a song that was popular at the time.[3] McCartney added a walking bass line...[7]

It has been hypothesized that the piece draws inspiration from the Dave Brubeck Quartet's 1959 song "Kathy's Waltz"...[9]

"All My Loving" has been praised by multiple critics. Ian MacDonald said, "The innocence of early Sixties British pop is perfectly distilled in the eloquent simplicity of this number" and described the song as helping McCartney be seen as more of an equal to Lennon.[3] Richie Unterberger of Allmusic said it "was arguably the best LP-only track the Beatles did before 1964" and that if it had been released as a single in America it would have been a huge hit...[18]

From the Daily Press - 02/08/14 - "Hampton Roads was once home to one of the real Monuments Men":

Hampton Roads was once home to one of the real Monuments Men

Posted on: 6:22 pm, February 7, 2014, by  and 
 

George Clooney, Matt Damon and art treasures stolen by Nazis — sounds like a movie right? It is!
 

 

Monuments Men opens Friday and is based on an actual group of unsung heroes from World War II. It turns out, one of those heroes of the art world was a real-life treasure to those who knew him in Hampton Roads.

He was Everett Parker Lesley, Jr. known to his friends as Bill.

Linda McGreevy was a new professor at Old Dominion University where Lesley taught Art History and also had some personal history to tell.

He was one of the Monuments Men – 345 men and women, mostly volunteer art experts, who joined the service during World War II to protect cultural treasures from Nazi destruction.

“It was the American and British troops who came in, those professionals in the art world, who helped to start this process of bringing these things back to where they really belong,” McGreevy says.

The story has been told on smaller scale in films like the Rape of Europa, which McGreevy knows from owning Naro Video in Norfolk.

Starting today, millions will know the story thanks to the latest George Clooney and Matt Damon film.

But very few people know firsthand one of the people who not only witnessed history but helped preserve it.

1966 Troubadour
 


“He said, 'I had the bust of Nefertiti from the Berlin Museum on my desk for over a year,' ” McGreevy says.

Lesley also found a train carrying a famous DaVinci and helped return it to Poland.

He was living history for his colleagues at ODU.

“He was very proud of what he had done and here was a woman who could speak to him about it, you know, and actually was surprised and interested and like, ‘Oh Bill, you did that?’” McGreevy says.

“I think the Monuments Men experience was probably the best thing that ever happened to him in his life.”

Bill Lesley died in 1982. For a time, he was the acting director of the Norfolk Museum of Arts and Sciences, which today is the Chrysler Museum.

   Obviously from the ODC yearbook image I've added here, Mr. Leslie was teaching while I was attending there. Had I not switched my major from Art to English during freshman registration, I'm sure I would have known him. Regrettably, I did not.


  From My Friend, Evelyn Dudzinski Griffis (Mars Hill HS, PA - '75) of NY - 02/08/14 - "Love...":

From My Friend, Jon, of MO - 02/08/14 - "Voicemail":

FINALLY:

From www.ajokeaday.com - 02/08/14:

Quick Wit: 

A police officer in a small town stopped a motorist who was speeding down Main Street. 

"But officer." the man began, "I can explain,". 

"Just be quiet," snapped the officer. "I'm going to let you cool your heels in jail until the chief gets back..." 

"But officer, I just wanted to say...." 

"And I said to keep quiet! You're going to jail!" 

A few hours later the officer looked in on his prisoner and said, "Lucky for you that the chief is at his daughter's wedding. He'll be in a good mood when he gets back." 

"Don't count on it," answered the fellow in the cell. "I'm the groom."

All My Loving

Written by Paul McCartney (18 June 1942) (credited to Lennon–McCartney)

Recorded by the Beatles, 1963
 

Close your eyes and I'll kiss you
Tomorrow I'll miss you
Remember I'll always be true
And then while I'm away
I'll write home every day
And I'll send all my loving to you

I'll pretend that I'm kissing
The lips I am missing
And hope that my dreams will come true
And then while I'm away
I'll write home every day
And I'll send all my loving to you

All my loving, I will send to you
All my loving, darling I'll be true

Close your eyes and I'll kiss you
Tomorrow I'll miss you
Remember I'll always be true
And then while I'm away
I'll write home every day
And I'll send all my loving to you

All my loving, I will send to you
All my loving, darling I'll be true
All my loving, All my loving
Woo, all my loving, I will send to you
