“I was never one to patiently pick up broken fragments
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
Have we had any Beatles' songs lately?
BONUS - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zGKZCMbhmCE - Not A Second Time - The Beatles, 1963
|"Not a Second Time" is a song by
John Lennon (credited to
Lennon/McCartney) performed by
The Beatles on their second United Kingdom album,
With the Beatles. Lennon said he was "trying to write a
Smokey Robinson or something at the time."
This song inspired a musical analysis from William Mann of The Times, citing the "Aeolian cadence" (Aeolian harmony) of Lennon's vocals as the song draws to a close, and noting that the same chord progression appears at the end of Mahler's "Song of the Earth". Lennon, years later, remarked: "To this day, I have no idea what [Aeolian cadences] are. They sound like exotic birds." The actual meaning of the term "Aeolian cadence" is when a major key song resolves on the VI chord, which is the tonic chord of the relative minor key. The term derives from the fact that the Aeolian mode is rooted on the sixth step of the major scale.

From the Incomparable Charis Bean Duke (Governor Thomas Johnson HS, MD - '85) of PA - 05/06/15:
|“To any of you who
are troubled about the future...God expects you to have enough faith and
determination and enough trust in Him to keep moving, keep living, keep
rejoicing. In fact, He expects you not simply to face the future (that
sounds pretty grim and stoic); He expects you to embrace and shape the
future - to love it and rejoice in it and delight in your

Thanks so much, Charis!
