They say that time heals all wounds but all it’s done so far
is give me more time to think about how much I miss you.

 - Ezbeth Wilder

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,   

   My Magic Shower (from whom we have not heard in a while) sang this ballad to me recently.  Apparently my Magic Shower is even more of a sucker for sad old songs than I am.  I remember this one most clearly as it was featured several times in one of my favorite movies,  (1944):

In the score often, symbolizing the love between Anne and her absent husband Tim
Played by the band at the dance and sung off-screen by an unidentified singer; danced by Joseph Cotten and Claudette Colbert and other couples
Whistled by Joseph Cotten twice
Played also on a music box

   I was surprised how many interpretations of it there were - even in 1928!

BONUS #1 - Together - Cliff Edwards, 1928

BONUS #3 - Together - Ray Starita and his Ambassadors Band, 1928

BONUS #4 - Together - Arnold Johnson and his Paramount Hotel Orchestra, 1928

BONUS #5 - Together - Frank Ferera's Hawaiians with vocals by Annette Hanshaw, 1928

BONUS #6 - Together - Paul Whiteman Orchestra, probably 1928

BONUS #7 - Together - Connie Francis, 1961

* EXTRA 20-Minute BONUS HOMAGE to Max Steiner's Score for Since You Went Away, 1944


"Together" is a 1928 popular song with music by Ray Henderson and lyrics by Buddy G. DeSylva and Lew Brown. The most popular 1928 recording of the song, by Paul Whiteman, with Bix Beiderbecke on cornet, was a #1 hit for two weeks.[1]

The song was included in a 1944 movie, Since You Went Away. This gave rise to a revival of the song, and it was recorded by Dick Haymes and Helen Forrest in a duet. Their recording was released by Decca Records as catalog number 23349. It first reached the Billboard magazine Best Seller chart on October 5, 1944 and lasted 10 weeks on the chart, peaking at #3.[2] This recording was paired on a single with "It Had to Be You," a #4 hit, producing a big two-sided hit.

"Together" became a Top Ten hit in the summer of 1961 via a recording by Connie Francis cut in New York City on 3 June 1961 with Cliff Parman acting as arranger and conductor. After focusing on new material for her recent singles releases, Francis with "Together" reverted to the mode of remaking traditional pop songs which had provided her with her biggest hits in the '50s. "Together" reached #6 on the Billboard Hot 100 and was the first single release by Francis which could avail itself of the July 1961 inauguration of Billboard's Easy Listening chart where "Together" peaked at #1.[1][3] Francis' "Together" also reached #2 in Australia, #6 in the UK, #7 in Ireland and #6 in New Zealand and was a #1 hit in India.

"Together" was the title cut for a 1964 collaborative album by Marvin Gaye and Mary Wells which - apart from the original songs "Once Upon a Time" and "What's the Matter with You Baby" released as a single- consisted of remakes of traditional pop songs. "Together" was also the title cut of a 1976 Anne Murray album. See Together (Marvin Gaye and Mary Wells album); Together (Anne Murray album).

A recording of "Together" plays in the background on the John Lennon and Yoko Ono album Two Virgins, released in 1968 on Apple Records.

     From Fred Mays ('60) of VA - 03/23/15, 10:44 PM - "Death of    Robert I. Coleman, Jr.": 

Hi Carol:

Hope you are doing well. You may have been informed of a death in the Daily Press yesterday, Sunday, March 22, 2015. It was for Robert “Bobby” I. Coleman, Jr. He graduated in the February 1945 class. He is a cousin of my cousins, the Coleman kids. My cousin, Virginia Coleman Abbott graduated in the February ’43 class. She called me Saturday night to tell me of his death. He was “Best Looking” in his class Hall of Fame. Bobby Coleman was very popular with everyone. He actually autographed the yearbook I have……it belonged to Irvin Fenton. His wife, Nancy Fenton gave me a lot of yearbooks before she moved in to Warwick Forest. She and her late husband both graduated from N.N.H.S. and are very special people. Bobby’s autograph to Irvin says, “To a friend I shall never forget. Take care of the shop class next year. Best of luck to one swell boy….Bob.”

My Coleman cousins were the children of my father’s older sister Ethel Mays Coleman. We loved her and looked on her as a grandmother on the Mays side since my grandmother died before I was born.

Well, I must retire for the evening……..I miss seeing you and hope that can change soon. I hope
        Paul and your special children are all doing well. We now have four grandchildren……what a blessing.

Take care, Miss Carol.

Best Regards, Fred Mays, class of 1960

   Thank you so much, Fred! I read Bob's obituary in the Daily Press, and I know I spent at least an hour Sunday searching through my incomplete collection of old yearbook from the forties looking for his senior listing. Not finding it so frustrated me I just stopped everything and left my computer to go watch television.

   I've updated Bob's Memorial Edition now:

Music by Ray Henderson (01 Dec 1896 - 31 Dec 1970), 1928

Lyrics by Buddy G. DeSylva (27 Jan 1895 -11 July 1950) and Lew Brown (10 Dec 1893 – 05 Feb 1958), 1928

We strolled the lane together
Laughed at the rain together,
Sang love's refrain together
And we'd both pretend it would never end
But one day we cried together
Cast love aside together
You're gone from me,
But in my memory
We always will be together.

Oh darlin' the memory
Of all the happy moments we shared together
Will always remain in my heart
The picnics at the park,
The boat rides on the lake,
The way we danced all night,
The warmth of your kiss,
The way you held me tight
Are all part of a tender love
I'll never, never forget.

You're gone from me
But in my memory,
Darlin', wherever you are,
We'll always be.... together.
