Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me

“Kiss me and you will see how important I am.”

- Sylvia Plath
(27 Oct 1932 - 11 Feb 1963)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,   

   Oooh - a great Golden Oldie!  Just right for today.

BONUS - Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me - Mel Carter


From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hold_Me,_Thrill_Me,_Kiss_Me:

"Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me" is a popular song written by Harry Noble in 1952. It was a hit in 2 different decades and is considered a classic of the early Rock/Pop era. The original version was released by Karen Chandler in 1952, released by Coral Records as catalog number 60831. It first reached the Billboard magazine charts on October 17, 1952 and lasted 18 weeks on the chart, peaking at #7. [1] It was her only charted hit. As was often the case with songs of that era, a version was recorded by British singer Muriel Smith and became a hit in Britain in 1953, reaching the Top 3. Shirley Bassey covered the song on her 1969 album Does Anybody Miss Me. The version most often heard today is the latter-day hit version recorded by Mel Carter, reaching #8 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and #1 on the "Easy listening" chart in 1965. This version makes an appearance in the movie We Were Soldiers. The title was also used as the title for Gloria Estefan's 1994 album of covers, and was later referenced by U2's 1995 song "Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me".

   Thanks very much, Mariel! This is a pet peeve of mine, too - for the very reason expressed here!


        From My Husband, Paul Harty (Bardolph HS, IL - '61) of NC - 04/10/15 - ". . . They Walk Among Us":

Some guy bought a new fridge for his house. To get rid of his old fridge, he put it in his front yard and hung a sign on it saying: 'Free to good home. You want it, you take it.' For three days the fridge sat there without anyone looking twice. He eventually decided that people were too mistrustful of this deal. So he changed the sign to read: 'Fridge for sale $50.' The next day someone stole it!

They walk among us!
-------------------------------------

* One day I was walking down the beach with some friends when someone shouted, 'Look at that dead bird!'
Someone looked up at the sky and said...'Where?'

They walk among us!

----------------------------------------------------------

While looking at a house, my brother asked the real estate agent which direction was north because he didn't want the sun waking him up every morning.

She asked, 'Does the sun rise in the north?' My brother explained that the sun rises in the east and has for some time.

She shook her head and said, 'Oh, I don't keep up with all that stuff......'

They Walk Among Us!
--------------------------------------------

Traffic Camera

A man was driving when he saw the flash of a traffic camera. He figured that his picture had been taken for exceeding the limit, even though he knew that he was not speeding... Just to be sure, he went around the block and passed the same spot, driving even more slowly, but again the camera flashed. Now he began to think that this was quite funny, so he drove even slower as he passed the area again, but the traffic camera again flashed. He tried a fourth time with the same result.. He did this a fifth time and was now laughing when the camera flashed as he rolled past, this time at a snail's pace... Two weeks later, he got five tickets in the mail for driving without a seat belt..

You can't fix stupid.

**********************

My colleague and I were eating our lunch in our cafeteria, when we overheard an admin girl talking about the sunburn she got on her weekend drive to the beach. She drove down in convertible, but said she 'didn't think she'd get sunburned because the car was moving'.

They Walk Among Us!
------------------------------------

My sister has a lifesaving tool in her car which is designed to cut through a seat belt if she gets trapped. She keeps it in the car trunk.

They Walk Among Us!
-------------------------------------------------

I couldn't find my luggage at the airport baggage area and went to the lost luggage office and reported the loss. The woman there smiled and told me not to worry because she was a trained professional and said I was in good hands.

'Now,' she asked me, 'Has your plane arrived yet?'... (I work with professionals like this.)

They Walk Among Us!
------------------------------------------------

While working at a pizza parlor I observed a man ordering a small pizza to go. He appeared to be alone and the cook asked him if he would like it cut into 4 pieces or 6. He thought about it for some time then said 'Just cut it into 4 pieces; I don't think I'm hungry enough to eat 6 pieces.

They Walk Among Us!

     Thanks, Dools!

Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me

Written by Harry Noble, 1952

Recorded by Mel Carter (b. 22 Apr 1943), 1965
 

Hold me, hold me,
Never let me go until you've told me, told me,
What I want to know and then just hold me, hold me
Make me tell you I'm in love with you.

Thrill me, thrill me,
Walk me down the lane where shadows will be, will be
Hiding lovers just the same as we'll be, we'll be,
When you make me tell you I love you.

They told me be sensible with your new love,
Don't be fooled thinking this is the last you'll find.
But they never stood in the dark with you love,
When you take me in your arms and drive me slowly out of my mind

Kiss me, kiss me,
And when you do I'll know you that you will miss me, miss me,
If we ever say adieu so kiss me, kiss me,
Make me tell you I'm in love with you
