05/09/15 - 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 - - Hold Me Tight - The Beatles, 1963


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 Friend, Maureen, of NC - 05/08/15:

“The effort to throw off traditions of distrust and pettiness and truly see one another with new eyes—to see each other not as aliens or adversaries but as fellow travelers, brothers and sisters, and children of God—is one of the most challenging while at the same time most rewarding and ennobling experiences of our human existence.

- Dieter F. Uchtdorf
(b. 06 Nov 1940)

    Thanks so much, Maureen!

          From My #2 Son, Brent Harty (Hillsboro HS, IL - '90) of LA - 05/08/15 - "Recent DA Photo":


Hey all...just posted today, so thought I'd share. My brow is furrowed a
little more than usual...otherwise, it is exactly the same as last time in

    OH, WOW! Thank you, Brent - lookin' good!

      From My Cousin, Jean Atkinson Mallory (Warsaw HS / Rappahannock HS / John Marshall HS - '65) of VA - 05/08/15 - OCD Valet Parking:

  Here Carol, this is for you!!!

   OOH! Oh, Jean, I DO so love it!

   It reminds me of that wonderful Salvation Army store that        My Cousin, Cheryl White Wilson (James Blair HS / John Marshall HS - '64) of VA took     Eleanor (Buckley Nowitzky - '59 - of NC) and me to visit up there on the Sacred Soil in October of 2011. Everything was arranged by color. The aisles of clothing were first separated by types, of course, but then by color and only then by size. The shelves of knick-knacks and books were also arranged by color. What a glorious sight and pure joy it was to enter and behold! I've thought of it many, many times since. Would that every store might be so arranged!  


       From My Daughter, Adrienne Harty (Hillsboro HS, IL / American School, IL) of NC - 05/08/15 - "The Letter 'W' ":


     Thanks, Adrienne! I suppose that's an inside joke to Walking Dead fans, but...


“Death is an awful thing. I don't believe in it myself.

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.
