From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Till_the_End_of_Time_%28Buddy_Kaye_and_Ted_Mossman_song%29:

"Till the End of Time" is a popular song written by lyricist Buddy Kaye and composer Ted Mossman and published in 1945. The melody is based on Frédéric Chopin's Polonaise in A flat major, Op. 53, the "Polonaise héroique".

A number of recordings of the song were made in 1945. The biggest hit was by Perry Como; another version by Dick Haymes also charted; the Les Brown orchestra, with vocalist Doris Day, and Ginny Simms also made a recording of the song. It featured prominently in the 1946 film of the same name.

The Perry Como recording was recorded on July 3, 1945, and released by RCA Victor Records as catalog number 20-1709. The record first reached the Billboard magazine charts on August 9, 1945, and lasted 17 weeks on the chart, peaking at #1. This was Como's first #1 hit song. [1]

The Dick Haymes recording was recorded on July 2, 1945, and released by Decca Records as catalog number 18699. The record first reached the Billboard magazine charts on September 13, 1945 and lasted 8 weeks on the chart, peaking at #3. [1]

    From Jimmy Smith ('62 / '63) of VA - 05/05/14 - "My Travel Plans for 2014":

TRAVEL PLANS FOR 2014

I have been in many places, but I've never been in Cahoots. Apparently, you can't go alone. You have to be in Cahoots with someone.

I've also never been in Cognito. I hear no one recognizes you there.

I have, however, been in Sane. They don't have an airport; you have to be driven there. I have made several trips there, thanks to my friends, family, and work.

I would like to go to Conclusions, but you have to jump, and I'm not too much on physical activity anymore.

I have also been in Doubt. That is a sad place to go, and I try not to visit there too often.

I've been in Flexible, but only when it was very important to stand firm.

Sometimes I'm in Capable, and I go there more often as I'm getting older.

One of my favorite places to be is in Suspense! It really gets the adrenalin flowing and pumps up the old heart! At my age I need all the stimuli I can get!

I may have been in Continent, but I don't remember what country I was in. It's an age thing. They tell me it is very wet and damp there.

PLEASE DO YOUR PART!

You can do your bit by remembering to send this e-mail to at least one unstable person.

Laugh insanely, love truly and forgive quickly!

     Thanks, Jimmy!
 




From My Friend, Sherri, of UT - 05/05/14 - "The older I get...":

  AGREED! Thanks. Sherri!

Till the End of Time

Words by Buddy Kaye; Music by Ted Mossman
(melody based on Frédéric Chopin's Polonaise in A flat major, Op. 53, the "Polonaise héroique"), 1945

Recorded by Perry Como
(18 May 1912 - 12 May 2001)

Till the end of time, long as stars are in the blue
Long as there's a Spring of birds to sing I'll go on loving you
Till the end of time, long as roses bloom in May
My love for you will grow deeper with every passing day

Till the wells run dry and each mountain disappears
I'll be there for you to care for you through laughter and through tears
So take my heart in sweet surrender and tenderly say that I'm
The one you love and live for till the end of time

Till the wells run dry and each mountain disappears
I'll be there for you to care for you through laughter and through tears
So take my heart in sweet surrender and tenderly say that I'm
The one you love and live for till the end of time
