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".

 From My Niece, Shari, of VA - 04/10/17 - "lol":

We stopped to get gas earlier at a gas station in town. I noticed two police officers watching a woman smoking a cigarette while filling up.

I saw her and thought, "Wow, that's dangerous!" I went in to pay for our gas and as I was paying I heard someone screaming. I looked outside and the idiot woman's arm was on fire!!! She was swinging her arm and running around like a flapping chicken! But my sensible side interceded and I rushed outside to see if I could help. When I got closer, the police were putting her on the ground and dousing out the fire with their coffee!!! What?!?!

They put handcuffs on her and everything and put her in the cruiser! Being the nosy person that I am, I asked what she was being arrested for.

One of the officers looked me dead in the eyes and said, "For waving around a fire arm !!"

     ARGHH! Thanks, Shari!

FINALLY:

From http://www.ajokeaday.com - 04/10/17:

A loaded van pulled in to the only remaining campsite. Four children leaped from the vehicle and began feverishly unloading gear and setting up the tents.

Two of them rushed to gather firewood, while the other two and their mother set up the camp stove and cooking utensils.

A nearby camper marveled to the youngsters' father, "That, sir, is some display of teamwork."

The father replied, "I have a system... no one goes to the bathroom until the camp is set up."

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
