03/21/14 - NNHS Newsletter - Changes

“All changes, even the most longed for, have their melancholy;
for what we leave behind us is a part of ourselves;
we must die to one life before we can enter another.”


 -
Anatole France
(16 Apr 1844 - 12 Oct 1924)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,   

   Today is actually the second day of Spring - and that means we'll all soon be having many changes!

BONUS #1 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SFByioMIUsg - Changes - Ozzy Osbourne / Black Sabbath, 1972

BONUS #2 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zMj_hcE62aA - Changes - Ozzy Osbourne, 1993

BONUS #3 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OM7z4hn9oW0&NR=1 - Changes - Kelly Osbourne and her daddy, Ozzy, 2003


From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Changes_%28Black_Sabbath_song%29:

"Changes" is a song by Black Sabbath. It first appeared on Black Sabbath, Vol. 4 which was released in 1972. It is a ballad about relationship loss.

The song has been covered by numerous artists, including The Cardigans and Overkill. In 1993, Ozzy Osbourne (Black Sabbath's lead vocalist) re-recorded the song himself as a single (taken from the Live and Loud album). The single peaked at number 9 on Billboard's Mainstream Rock Tracks[1] but failed to chart in the UK. The opening track from UNKLE's second album "Never, Never, Land" features a prominent sample from the chorus and loops of the mellotron.

Three decades later, Ozzy recorded yet another version of the song, this time with his daughter, Kelly Osbourne as a duet. The revised lyrics for this version, released in 2003, reflect the moments of their life together. The single reached #1 in the UK. It also reached the top spot on the London Fashion Chart for three weeks, #1 on the Kerrang! UK Download Chart. It also became Birmingham's Big One and was nominated for a Grammy.

FINALLY:

From www.ajokeaday.com - 03/20/14:

A young man at a construction site was bragging that he could outdo anyone based on his strength. He especially made fun of one of the older workman. After several minutes, the older worker had enough.

"Why don't you put your money where you mouth is?" he said. "I'll bet a week's wages that I can haul something in a wheelbarrow over to the other building that you won't be able to wheel back."

"You're on, old man," the young man replied. "Let's see what you've got."

The old man reached out and grabbed the wheelbarrow by the handles. Then nodding to the young man, he said with a smile, "All right. Get in."

Changes

Written by Ozzy Osbourne (b. 03 Dec 1948), Tony Iommi (b. 19 Feb 1948),
Geezer Butler
(b. 17 July 1948), and Bill Ward (b. 05 May 1948), 1972


I feel unhappy
I feel so sad
I lost the best friend
That I ever had

She was my woman
I loved her so
But it's too late now
I've let her go

I'm going through changes
I'm going through changes

We shared the eve's
We shared each day
In love together
We found a way

But soon the world
Had its evil way
My heart was blinded
Love went astray

I'm going through changes
I'm going through changes

It took so long
To realize
That I can still hear
Her last goodbyes

Now all my days
Are filled with tears
Wish I could go back
And change these years

I'm going through changes
I'm going through changes
