“Flatter me, and I may not believe you. Criticize me, and I may not like you. Ignore me,
and I may not forgive you. Encourage me, and I will not forget you.
Love me and I may be forced to love you.

- William Arthur Ward
(1921-1994)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

   Have I mentioned lately how I love Scorpions? I mean, if you can't have Frank Sinatra singing love songs to you, you could do a whole lot worse than Scorpions!

BONUS - Still Loving You - Scorpions


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

"Still Loving You" is a power ballad by Scorpions from their 1984 album Love at First Sting and the soundtrack of the 1984 Paramount motion picture Footloose. It was the second single of the album, reaching #64 on Billboard Hot 100. In France, the single sold 1.7 million copies. The music video was released in July 1984,[1] and was filmed in Dallas, Texas at Reunion Arena.

In an interview with Songfacts, Rudolf Schenker explained "It's a story about a love affair, where they recognized it may be over, but let's try again."[2]

The song is also considered a thinly veiled metaphor for a still divided Eastern & Western Germany. "Your pride has built a wall so strong that I can't get through, is there really no chance to start once again?" "only love can break down the walls someday" and "Yes I've hurt your pride and I know, what you've been through, you should give me a chance, this can't be the end, I'm still loving you" were clear references to the Berlin Wall and the despair many Germans felt about their divided homeland.

A remixed version of the studio album version was included on the album Still Loving You in 1992. The remixed version was also released as a single in Germany and some other European countries. The band has also re-recorded the song twice, with the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra in 2000 for the album Moment of Glory and an acoustic re-working for the album Acoustica in 2001.

Matthias Jabs' guitar soloing is prominent throughout, but the main solo played in the outro is by Rudolf Schenker.

“In this world in which we live, there is a tendency for us to describe needed change, required help, and desired relief with the familiar phrase, "They ought to do something about this." We fail to define the word they. I love the message: "Let there be peace on earth, and let it begin with me." Tears came to my eyes when I read of a young boy in one of our eastern cities who noticed a vagrant asleep on a sidewalk and who then went to his own bedroom, retrieved his pillow, and placed it beneath the head of that one whom he knew not. Perhaps there came from the past these welcome words: "Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me" (Matthew 25:40).”

  From Jimmy Dick ('65) of FL - 02/28/19, 7:45 PM:

  Good night, everyone. I'll see you tomorrow as the begin Windy March and start the countdown to the Ides of March. Spring might be right around the corner, but it isn't here just yet. God bless and pleasant dreams until we meet again in the morning. Not the sea tonight, just a lonely Arizona Saguaro with a gorgeous good night backdrop. It's the Great Southwest and I truly believe God would agree when I say how beautiful it is at the end of the day. After all, it's part of his grand Creation.

    Thank you, Jimmy!

Still Loving You

Recorded by Scorpions, 1984


Time, it needs time
To win back your love again.
I will be there, I will be there.

Love, only love
Can bring back your love someday.
I will be there, I will be there.

Fight, babe, I'll fight
To win back your love again.
I will be there, I will be there.

Love, only love
Can break down the walls someday.
I will be there, I will be there.

If we'd go again
All the way from the start,
I would try to change
The things that killed our love.

Your pride has build a wall, so strong
That I can't get through.
Is there really no chance
To start once again?
I'm loving you.

Try, baby try
To trust in my love again.
I will be there, I will be there.

Love, your love
Just shouldn't be thrown away.
I will be there, I will be there.

If we'd go again
All the way from the start,
I would try to change
The things that killed our love.

Your pride has built a wall, so strong
That I can't get through.
Is there really no chance
To start once again?

If we'd go again
All the way from the start,
I would try to change
The things that killed our love.

Yes I've hurt your pride, and I know
What you've been through.
You should give me a chance
This can't be the end.

I'm still loving you.
I'm still loving you,
I need your love.
I'm still loving you.
Still loving you, baby...
