Crying in the Rain

“There is no greater sorrow than to recall
in misery the time when we were happy.”

- Dante Alighieri
(May/June c. 1265 - 14 Sept 1321)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,   

   After all the rain, thunderstorms, and flooding in recent days, there are a great many people crying in the rain.

BONUS #1 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bz0Sscke9z4 - Crying in the Rain - Everly Brothers

BONUS #2 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cOoyr02vFSs - Crying in the Rain - A-ha, 1990


From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crying_in_the_Rain:

"Crying in the Rain" is a song written by Howard Greenfield and Carole King and was originally recorded by The Everly Brothers. The single peaked at #6 on the U.S. pop charts[1].

In 1990, the Norwegian pop band A-ha covered the song. Following its success, A-ha became closer to the Everly Brothers, who had originally recorded the song. The band members were presented a set of guitars by the Everly Brothers that A-ha continues to use.

FINALLY:
From www.ajokeaday.com - 04/29/14:

Reaching the end of a job interview, the Human Resources Officer asked a young Engineer fresh out of MIT, "And what starting salary were you looking for?"

The Engineer replies, "In the region of $125,000 a year, depending on the benefits package."

The interviewer enquires, "Well, what would you say to a package of 5-weeks vacation, 14 paid holidays, full medical and dental, company matching retirement fund to 50% of salary, and a company car leased every 2 years say, a red Corvette?"

The Engineer sits up straight and says, "Wow! Are you kidding?"

And the interviewer replies, "Yeah, but you started it."

Crying in the Rain

Written by Howard Greenfield (15 Mar 1936 – 04 Mar 1986) and Carole King (b. 09 Feb 1942)

Recorded by The Everly Brothers, 1962

Recorded by a-ha, 1990
 

I'll never let you see
The way this broken heart is hurting me
I've got my pride
And I know how to hide
All the sorrow and pain
I'll do my crying in the rain

If I wait for cloudy skies
You won't know the rain from the tears in my eyes
You'll never know
That I still love you so
Though the heartaches remain
I'll do my crying in the rain

Raindrops falling from Heaven
Could never wash away my misery
Since we're not together
I pray for stormy weather
Raindrops falling from Heaven
Could never wash away my misery
Since we're not together
I pray for stormy weather
To hide these tears I hope you never see

Some day when my crying's done
I'm gonna wear a smile and walk in the sun
I may be a fool
But 'til then darling you'll
Never see me complain
I'll do my crying in the rain
To hide these tears I hope you never see

Some day when my crying's done
I'm gonna wear a smile and walk in the sun
I may be a fool
But 'til then darling you'll
Never see me complain
I'll do my crying in the rain

Raindrops falling from Heaven
Could never wash away my misery
Since we're not together
I pray for stormy weather
To hide these tears I hope you never see

Some day when my crying's done
I'm gonna wear a smile and walk in the sun
I may be a fool
But 'til then darling you'll
Never see me complain
I'll do my crying in the rain
I'll do my crying in the rain


I'll do my crying in the... rain
