You Made Me Love You

We lov'd, and we lov'd, as long as we could
Til our love was lov'd out in us both;

- John Dryden
(19 Aug 1631 - 12 May 1700)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates, 

   This song is over one hundred years old now.  How can that be?!?

BONUS #1 - - Dear Mr. Gable, You Made Me Love You - Judy Garland - clip from Broadway Melody of 1938

BONUS #2 - - You Made Me Love You - Harry James / Helen Forrest  - clip from Private Buckaroo, 1942

BONUS #3 - - Doris Day - clip from Love Me or Leave Me, 1955


"You Made Me Love You (I Didn't Want to Do It)" is a popular song. The music was written by James V. Monaco, the lyrics by Joseph McCarthy. The song was published in 1913. It was introduced in the Broadway revue The Honeymoon Express and used in the 1973 revival of the musical Irene.

One of the earliest recordings of the song was by Al Jolson. Jolson recorded the song on June 4, 1913. It was released on Columbia A-1374. He performed it on the soundtrack of the 1946 film The Jolson Story and recorded it on March 20, 1946. The record was released on Decca 23613.

Roger Edens wrote additional lyrics to the song for Judy Garland. The new lyrics cast Garland in the role of a teenage fan of Clark Gable. Garland sang the song to Gable at a birthday party thrown for him by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. MGM executives were so charmed by her rendition that she and the song were added to the film Broadway Melody of 1938. Garland recorded the "Gable" version on September 24, 1937. It was released on Decca 1463. MGM released the song as a b-side in 1939, opposite Garland's recording of "Over the Rainbow" for The Wizard of Oz.[1]

        From George Helliesen ('61) of MI - 04/05/15 - "VIOLIN TRIBUTE - MY WAY":

It's not often one hears a torch song done on violin, but I bet you will listen to this to the end!

Paul Anka
(b. 30 July 1941) wrote this in 1968. Frank Sinatra (12 Dec 1915 - 14 May 1998) would sing it often, and only a violin can make this sound as beautiful as it truly is.

Andre Rieu
(born 1 Oct 1949) doesn't often play his violin through whole pieces, this he did!! This is goose-bump stuff.

   WOWZERONI! Thanks so much, George! That's breathtakingly beautiful! It would seem the the Maestro is as big a fan of Frank Sinatra as I am!

From My Friend, Tori, of UT - 04/06/15:

The TARDIS - Time and Relative Dimension in Space - is a time traveling machine from the series Doctor Who, and was also featured on last week's Big Bang Theory - "The Skywalker Incursion"  - in which Mayim appears as Amy Farrah Fowler. So, that's how Elijah gets to all the homes!)


From Paul's Niece, Celesta, of MO - 04/06/15 - "John Wayne Easter Bunny":

Crocheted Cuddly Kittens Afghan - "No, this afghan doesn't feature your favorite furry friend, but the stitch does look like a row of adorable felines! A Crocheted Cuddly Kittens Afghan is quick, easy and perfect for girls. Use fun colors to create a fun yet functional crocheted afghan.

Tamara's Overcast Sunshine Afghan - "For a modern look, try the Overcast Sunshine Afghan. Yellow and grey is a popular color combination these days and this afghan pattern uses this color palette effectively. Crochet these blocks to make a crochet baby blanket, crochet throw, or even a full crochet afghan. This pattern is unique because on the reverse side the crocheted afghan is striped."

Darlene Dale's Land and Sea Throw - "Combining blue and green yarn gives this ripple crochet afghan pattern its name. This Land and Sea Throw takes the best of both settings and puts them into a design that's both classic and masculine. The playful chevron style of this afghan keeps this blanket interesting, yet it's easy enough for beginner crocheters to tackle. Like water reaching the shore, this chevron crochet pattern is relaxing. Make one for the special guy in your life so that he can stay warm and cozy even when you aren't nearby."


All-in-One Dinner - "Meat loaf, potatoes, and veggies all wrapped up in one dynamite dinner...Now that's smart cooking! You won't need any side dishes with this easy beef dinner because it's all cooked up into one tasty meal. All you'll need is a plate, a fork... and your appetite!"

My Family's Favorite Casserole - "There's nothing homier or more welcoming than a hearty casserole at the end of a busy day. My Family's Favorite Casserole is a different one that's even better the day after, if there's any left!":


From - 03/30/15:

A woman was cooking eggs in the kitchen when her husband came running in. Immediately, he saw the eggs and gasped in horror.

"Be careful! CAREFUL! Put in some more butter! Oh, my GOSH!"

The wife, startled at her husband's violent reaction, dashed to the fridge to get some butter.

"You're cooking too many at once. TOO MANY! Turn them! TURN THEM NOW!"

The wife, concerned by the status of her husband's mental state, forgot about the butter and went running to the eggs.

"WE NEED BUTTER! Are you CRAZY??? Where are we going to get the butter? They're going to stick! HURRY!"

The wife ran to the frig,

"CAREFUL about the eggs! CAREFUL. You NEVER listen to me when you're cooking! Never! Turn them quickly! Oh not that quickly, don't you know how to cook? Are you insane? Turn the EGGS!"

At this point, the wife started crying, as she had no idea what to do.

She gasped, "What is WRONG with you? I know how to cook eggs."

The husband simply smiled and replied, "I just wanted to show you what it feels like while I'm driving with you in the car," and left.

You Made Me Love You (I Didn't Want to Do It)

Music by James V. Monaco
(13 Jan 1885 – 16 Oct 1945)

Lyrics by Joseph McCarthy
(27 Sept 1885 – 18 Dec 1943)

From The Honeymoon Express, 1913

You made me love you
I didn't want to do it, I didn't want to do it
You made me love you
and all the time you knew it
I guess you always knew it.
You made me happy sometimes, you made me glad
But there were times, Dear, you made me feel so bad

You made me sigh for, I didn't want to tell you
I didn't want to tell you
I want some love that's true, yes I do, deed I do, you know I do

Give me, give me, give me what I cry for
you know you got the brand of kisses that I'd die for
You know you made me love you
