Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
Is this song a bit more obscure than our usual fare, or is it just me?
BONUS - Bring It on Home to Me - Sam Cooke
|"Bring It On Home to Me" is a
soul song written and recorded by
The song, about infidelity, was a hit for Cooke and has become a
covered by numerous artists of different genres. It is one of
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's 500 Songs that Shaped Rock and Roll.
Cooke's recorded version has
singing responses as an
uncredited background singer.
This song is considered by many historians of soul music to be the founding, or at least definitive soul song, as it provides the formula that is still popular today. Cooke's live version of this song that he performed in Miami, from the album Live at the Harlem Square Club, 1963, can be seen as his personal vision of what soul music should be, owing to the texture and emotion conveyed through his vocals that night, and that were probably standard in Cooke's near-nightly shows in primarily black clubs.

THIS DAY IN 1968:
is eagerly waiting for the chance to answer your prayers and fulfill
your dreams, just as He always has. But He can't if you don't pray, and
He can't if you don't dream. In short, He can't if you don't believe.”

From the Most Athletic Boy in the Class of 1954, Mickey Marcella of VA - 04/10/18:
|Recently, Joey Lawrence (Hampton HS - '54), who was a stellar athlete for his school and his community, passed away. Having experienced severe financial reverses, Joey died without leaving funds to pay for his final expenses, which just should not be. His friends are seeking to take care of them for him, as they know he would have done for them. If you find it in your heart to help, and if you can spread this word to others, please send whatever you can for Joey to Mickey Marcella, 294 Sanlin Drive, Newport News, VA 23602.|
Thank you, Mickey, I'm so very sorry to hear this! Thank you for letting us know.
Okay, Typhoon Nation, you know what to do!
