03/07/17 - NNHS Newsletter - Who's Sorry Now?

How does one know if she has forgiven? You tend to feel sorrow
over the circumstance instead of rage, you tend to feel sorry
for the person rather than angry with him.
You tend to have nothing left to say about it all.

- Clarissa Pinkola Estes
(b. 27 Jan 1945)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,   

     I certainly hope that you're not sorry now, because we have some more interesting items for you today!

BONUS #1 - Who's Sorry Now? - Irvin Kaufman, Tenor with Ben Selvin's Orchestra, 1923

BONUS #2 - Who's Sorry Now? - Lisette Verea - film clip from A Night in Casablanca (1946)

BONUS #3 - - Who's Sorry Now? - Connie Francis, 1958



"Who's Sorry Now?" is a popular song with music written by Ted Snyder and lyrics by Bert Kalmar and Harry Ruby. It was published in 1923.[1]

"Who's Sorry Now?" was featured in the Marx Brothers film A Night in Casablanca (1946), directed by Archie Mayo and released by United Artists.

The song has been recorded by a number of artists. It was recorded in 1932 by Billy Banks and His Rhythmakers, featuring Eddie Condon on guitar. The Tiny Hill Orchestra recorded it in 1945 (Mercury Records catalog number 2041). Another one of those was an August 20, 1951 recording by Jerry Gray and his orchestra (Decca Records catalog number 27868[2]). Johnnie Ray recorded his version in 1956 for the Columbia Records label. It reached number 17 in the UK Singles Chart in February 1956.[3]

The song was recorded in 1958 by Connie Francis, and since then the song has become closely identified with her due to the immense popularity of her version which was her breakout hit. Francis' father had pestered her to record "Who's Sorry Now" being adamant that the song would be a rock and roll smash hit. Francis did not share this enthusiasm but when an October 1957 recording session - scheduled to be Francis' last as she had scored no hits - wrapped early the singer used the leftover studio time to record "Who's Sorry Now" as a goodwill gesture to her father.[4] Breaking in January 1958 - mainly on account of Dick Clark's championing of "Who's Sorry Now" on American Bandstand - the track rose to number 4 on the Billboard Hot 100 that spring, with eventual US sales totaling one million units. In the UK, "Who's Sorry Now" was number 1 for six weeks in May and June 1958...[5]

      Thanks, Sarah Sugah!

   This reminds me of this image of my mama and her little sister, Alice, taken when they were eight and six. Their mother loved those big hair bows. So did Alice. My mother decidedly did NOT.

From - 03/06/17:

The manager of a large city zoo was drafting a letter to order a pair of animals. He sat at his computer and typed the following sentence: "I would like to place an order for two mongooses, to be delivered at your earliest convenience."

He stared at the screen, focusing on that odd word "mongooses." Then he deleted the word and added another, so that the sentence now read: "I would like to place an order for two mongeese, to be delivered at your earliest convenience."

Again he stared at the screen, this time focusing on the new word, which seemed just as odd as the original one. Finally, he deleted the whole sentence and started all over.

"Everyone knows no fully stocked zoo should be without a mongoose," he typed. "Please send us two of them."

Who's Sorry Now?

Ted Snyder (15 Aug 1881 - 16 July 1965)

Lyrics by Bert Kalmar (10 Feb 1884 - 18 Sept 1947) and Harry Ruby (27 Jan 1895 - 23 Feb 1974), 1923

Recorded by Connie Francis (b. 12 Dec 1938), 1958

Who’s sorry now, who’s sorry now
Whose heart is achin’ for breakin’ each vow
Who’s sad and blue, who’s cryin’ too
Just like I cried over you.

Right to the end, just like a friend
I tried to warn you somehow
You had your way, now you must pay
I’m glad that you’re sorry now.

Right to the end just like a friend
I tried to warn you somehow
You had your way, now you must pay
I’m glad that you’re sorry now.
