Since I Met You, Baby

“Have you ever been in love? Horrible isn't it? It makes you so vulnerable. It opens your chest and it opens up your heart
and it means that someone can get inside you and mess you up. You build up all these defenses, you build up a whole suit
of armor, so that nothing can hurt you, then one stupid person, no different from any other stupid person, wanders
into your stupid life...You give them a piece of you. They didn't ask for it. They did something dumb one day, like kiss you
or smile at you, and then your life isn't your own anymore. Love takes hostages. It gets inside you. It eats you out and
leaves you crying in the darkness, so simple a phrase like 'maybe we should be just friends' turns into a glass splinter
working its way into your heart. It hurts. Not just in the imagination. Not just in the mind. It's a soul-hurt, a real
gets-inside-you-and-rips-you-apart pain...”

- Neil Gaiman
(b. 10 Nov 1960)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates, 

   Remember this Golden Oldie?

From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Since_I_Met_You_Baby_%28song%29:

"Since I Met You Baby" is an American rhythm and blues song written and recorded by pianist Ivory Joe Hunter. The song, which Hunter recorded in 1956, became an American standard, and saw renewed popularity in 1969 when country music artist Sonny James released his hit version.

Hunter had already tasted major success with popular and rhythm and blues audiences with songs such as "I Almost Lost My Mind". He moved to Atlantic Records by 1954, and around that time wrote "Since I Met You Baby."

The song, a 12-bar blues, was described by Allmusic critic Steve Huey as "a masterpiece of smooth, bluesy elegance" and "decidedly removed from the tide of raucous rock & roll sweeping the country." In fact, compared to many of the other uptempo, rock-beat songs of the period, the song was "augmented by a wordless vocal choir (supervised by Ray Ellis who also did the orchestral arrangement) that's strongly reminiscent of traditional pop recordings of the period," wrote Huey. Saxophonist Jesse Powell provided the harmony on the second verse.[1][2]

"Since I Met You Baby" topped the Billboard magazine Rhythm and Blues Records chart for three weeks in 1956, and became Hunter's only Billboard Hot 100 entry, stopping at No. 12...

BONUS BABY CROCHET PATTERNS:

http://www.crochetme.com/media/p/94815.aspx - Heather Phillips' Grandma’s Easy Ten-Step Baby Booties - "I named this pattern after my grandmother because, back when my grandmother was teaching me to crochet, this was the first pattern she taught me (and if a fumble-fingered 11 year old can learn to make this pattern, anyone can!). Someone taught it to her when she was first learning how to crochet. But in spite of how long it has been around, nobody wrote it down until now. I wanted to share the pattern, but do it in a way that recognizes that I am just the most recent link in a long chain of women who have been making and sharing this pattern."

http://www.squidoo.com/easy-baby-crochet-hat-patterns - Baby Hat Patterns Ideal for Beginners - "Even I (a beginner at crochet) had no trouble whipping this gorgeous homemade baby crochet hat up in less than 2 hours! I love the fact that these kids free baby crochet hat patterns are so quick and easy to make, they can be made in less than the time it takes to watch a good movie..."

http://www.redheart.com/free-patterns/simple-sweet-baby-sweater and http://www.redheart.com/files/patterns/pdf/LW2886.pdfPhyllis Sandford's Simple Sweet Baby Sweater - "It won’t take long to crochet this huggable sweater. Pattern includes 5 sizes so you can make it in each size and have a rainbow of sweaters to fit a growing baby."

Since I Met You, Baby

Written and Recorded by Ivory Joe Hunter, 1956
(10 Oct 1914 – 08 Nov 1974)


Since I met you baby
My whole life has changed
Since I met you baby
My whole life has changed
And everybody tells me
That I am not the same

I don't need nobody
To tell my troubles to
I don't need nobody
To tell my troubles to
'Cause since I met you baby
All I need is you

[Instrumental Interlude]

Since I met you baby
I'm a happy man
Since I met you baby
I'm a happy man
I'm gonna try to please you
In every way I can
