05/09/14 - NNHS Newsletter - Hold Me Tight

“Millions and millions of years would still not give me
half enough time to describe that tiny instant of all eternity
when you put your arms around me and I put my arms around you.


- Jacques Prévert
(04 Feb 1900 - 11 Apr 1977)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

      We're back to the Beatles.

BONUS - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hf3yL7Gixvg - Hold Me Tight - The Beatles, 1963




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

It was first recorded during the Please Please Me album session, but not selected for inclusion[1] and re-recorded for their second album. It was the first of only two occasions when a song title was held over from one Beatles album to appear on the next, "Wait" (left off Help! then included on Rubber Soul) being the other.[2]

"Hold Me Tight" was composed principally by McCartney in 1961, and was part of The Beatles stage act until 1963.[3][4] In their best-selling The Beatles: An Illustrated Record, Roy Carr and Tony Tyler call it the album's poorest track, saying it "fails because McCartney's vision of the complete tune obviously sagged somewhat, and his distressingly out-of-tune singing became quite embarrassing after only a few bars."[5]

Indeed, both Paul McCartney and John Lennon had, at one time or another, shared their distaste for the song, and in a 1980s interview with Mark Lewisohn in The Beatles Recording Sessions, McCartney says, "I can't remember much about that one. Certain songs were just 'work' songs, you haven't got much memory of them.

  From My Daughter-in-Law, Laura Adams Harty (Cardston HS, Alberta - '95) of AL (soon to be LA) - 05/08/14 - "Fireflies!":

I saw fireflies on my walk on Tuesday night! The forest was so beautiful. It looked like an Enchanted fairy land. I guess I can cross that off my bucket list.. Fireflies....done...LOL

   OOOH! Fireflies! We used to call them lightning bugs when I was a little girl in Newport News. They were so very plentiful back then! We used to capture them in jars, and then let them go after a few minutes. I still see them here in Fayetteville on occasion. What a treat - and a great memory! Thanks, Laura!

Hold Me Tight

Written principally by Paul McCartney (credited to McCartney/Lennon)

Recorded by The Beatles, 1963


It feels so right now, hold me tight,
Tell me I'm the only one,
And then I might,
Never be the lonely one.
So hold me tight, to-night, to-night,
It's you, you you you - oo-oo - oo-oo.

Hold me tight,
Let me go on loving you,
To-night to-night,
Making love to only you,
So hold me tight, to-night, to-night,
It's you, you you you - oo-oo - oo-oo.

Don't know what it means to hold you tight,
Being here alone tonight with you,
It feels so right now, feels so right now.
