Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Where_Do_You_Go_To_%28My_Lovely%29%3F: 

"Where Do You Go To (My Lovely)?" is a song that was written and performed by Peter Sarstedt. Its recording was produced by Ray Singer and engineered by John Mackswith at Lansdowne Recording Studios and released in 1969. It was a #1 hit in the UK charts for four weeks in 1969 and was awarded the 1969 Ivor Novello Award, together with David Bowie's "Space Oddity". In the United States, the record reached #61 on the Cash Box Top 100 Singles and #70 on the Billboard Hot 100 that May. The music is a faux European waltz tune.[1]

The song is about a fictional girl named Marie-Claire who grows up from the backstreets of Naples to become a member of the jet set, and lives in Paris. The lyrics describe her from the perspective of a childhood friend; it is left unclear whether they have remained close. The rhetorical question of the title suggests that her glamorous lifestyle may not have brought Marie-Claire happiness or contentment.

Sarstedt himself was not French, but the song may have benefited from the contemporary awareness in Britain of such singers as Serge Gainsbourg and Jacques Brel.

The lyrics contain a large number of contemporary and other references...

It is often suspected that the name Marie-Claire is inspired by the originally French Marie Claire magazine, a women's fashion weekly first published in 1937. One theory says that this song is about the Italian star Sophia Loren, who was abandoned by her father and had a poverty-stricken life in Naples.[citation needed] Another theory has the song being inspired by singer and actress Nina van Pallandt.[citation needed] In reality, Peter Sarstedt wrote the song about a girl he fell madly in love with in Vienna in 1965.[citation needed] She died in a hotel fire.[citation needed] The song was written in Copenhagen (confirmation of this fact can be found on the CD cover of The Best of Peter Sarstedt, EMI, nr. 8297622, Australian CD)...

In 2007, the song was prominently used in Wes Anderson's short film Hotel Chevalier. The film is a prologue to his movie The Darjeeling Limited, in which the song also appears..

   From Cheryl Mays Howard ('66 / '67) of VA - 02/26/15 - "Let It Snow":

  Still snowing in Yorktown! This reminds me of 1982-83 when we were building our house…so much snow! Soon it will be Spring and we can deal with bugs and allergies…ha ha

   HOW PRETTY! It reminds me of those scenic snowy Christmas cards! Thanks, Cheryl! Y'all stay warm and toasty!

 
 


      From Jimmy Hines ('64) of VA - 02/26/15:

  YES, VIRGINIA, SANTA DOES SHOVEL SNOW.

Santa getting snow off driveway

   HA! I'll bet you really turned some heads there, Santa Jim!

   But seriously, Sweetie, find out why Mrs. Claus gave those silly elves the day off and put them back to work! Barring that, find some teenagers to impersonate them while you stay on the porch and supervise!

   
   


    From My Cousin, Jim Atkinson (John Randolph Tucker HS - '77) of AZ - 02/26/15 - "Roadrunner":

  Out on the BMGR early this morning and passed a roadrunner with its back to the morning sun.

Roadrunners conserve energy on cold nights by letting their body temperature drop. In the morning, they raise the feathers on their back exposing a patch of dark skin to the sun which functions as a solar panel and warms them back to an "operational" temperature range for the day.

The Granite Mountains rise in the background across the expansive Growler Valley.

   Oh, Cousin Jim! You found the roadrunner! How exciting! Thanks so much!

 
 


  From Alice Menin Daniels ('62) of Northern VA - 02/26/15 - "7-Up Biscuits":

FINALLY:  

From http://www.ajokeaday.com - 02/26/15:

A priest, a lawyer, and an accountant were all at the bedside of a very ill man. The man said to them,

"Gentlemen, I'm dying. Before I go, however, I want to ask you one final favor: My family is rotten and I don't want to give any of them an inheritance. I would like to be buried with the remainder of my money." He then hands the priest, the lawyer, and the accountant three envelopes that contain $100,000 each.

"While my coffin is being lowered into the earth, please throw each of the envelopes in. Don't tell anyone what's inside the envelopes."

So the three men left. Sure enough, one week later, the man died. During the funeral, the three men tossed the envelopes into the grave whilst the coffin was being lowered. After the funeral, the three men went to a cafe to discuss the life of the old man.

The priest said, "I have a confession: I took $10,000 from my envelope. But I used it to fix up the children's home. The old man was always very generous and loved the children. I'm sure he wouldn't mind seeing where his money went."

The lawyer piped in, "Well, I also have a confession: I took $30,000 as payment of a personal loan he borrowed from me years ago."

The accountant, looking rather shocked, said, "I cannot believe you two! I wrote a personal check that covered the whole thing!"

Where Do You Go To (My Lovely)

Written and recorded by Peter Sarstedt, 1969
(b. 12 Dec 1942)
 

You talk like Marlene Dietrich
And you dance like Zizi Jeanmaire
Your clothes are all made by Balmain
And there's diamonds
and pearls in your hair, yes, there are

And you live in a fancy apartment
Off the Boulevard of St. Michel
Where you keep your Rolling Stones records
And a friend of Sacha Distel, yes, you do

But where do you go to, my lovely
When you're alone in your bed
Won't you tell me the thoughts that surround you
I want to look inside your head, yes, I do

Well, I've seen all your qualifications
That you got from the Sorbonne
And the painting you stole from Picasso
Your loveliness goes on and on, yes, it does

And when you go on your summer vacation
You go to Juan-les-Pins
With your carefully designed topless swimsuit
You get an even suntan, on your back and on your legs

And when the snow falls you're found in St. Moritz
With the others of the jet-set
And you sip your Napoleon Brandy
But you never get your lips wet, no, you don't

But where do you go to, my lovely
When you're alone in your bed
Won't you tell me the thoughts that surround you
I want to look inside your head, yes, I do

Your name is heard in high places
You know the Aga Khan
And he sent you a racehorse for Christmas
And you keep it just for fun, for a laugh, ha-ha-ha-ha

And they say that when you get married
It'll be to a millionaire
Ah, but they don't realize where you came from
And I wonder if they really care, or give a damn

But where do you go to, my lovely
When you're alone in your bed
You better tell me the thoughts that surround you
I want to look inside your head, yes, I do

Well, I remember the back streets of Naples
And two children begging in rags
Both touched with a burning ambition
To shake off their lowly brown tags, yes, they try

So look into my face, Marie-Claire
And remember just who you are
Then go and forget me forever
But I know you still bear
the scar, deep inside, yes, you do

I know where you go to, my lovely
When you're alone in your bed
I know the thoughts that surround you
'Cause I can look inside your head
