05/09/17 - 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 - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dKAOBPSLFgg - 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.

THIS DAY IN 1967:

Tuesday, May 09, 1967 - What? NADA?!?
 



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 George Helliesen ('61) of VA - 05/08/17 - "OLD AGE .............. Issues":
 
This is what all of you 70+ years old, and yet-to-be senior citizens, have to look forward to!!

This is something that happened at an assisted living facility. The people who lived there have small apartments, but they all eat at a central cafeteria. One morning one of the residents didn't show up for breakfast so my wife went upstairs and knocked on his door to see if everything was OK. She could hear him through the door, and he said that he was running late and would be down shortly so she went back to the dining room.

An hour later he still hadn't arrived, so she went back up towards his room and she found him on the stairs. He was coming down the stairs but was having a heck of time. He had a death grip on the hand rail and seemed to have trouble getting his legs to work right.

She told him she was going to call an ambulance, but he told her no, he wasn't in any pain and just wanted to have his breakfast. So she helped him the rest of the way down the stairs and he had his breakfast. When he tried to return to his room he was completely unable to get up even the first step, so they called an ambulance for him.

A couple hours later she called the hospital to see how he was doing. The receptionist there said he was fine, he just had both of his legs in one leg of his boxer shorts.


I am sending this to my children so that they don’t sell the house before they know the facts.

   WILD SAD GIGGLES! Thanks, George!




 From Marc Snyder ('65) of NC - 05/08/16:

     TRUE DAT! Thanks, Marc!

Return to NNHS Class of 1965


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.
