05/09/19 - 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




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 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 Joan Lauterbach Krause ('60) of VA - 05/09/18:
 
  Thank you, Joan!
 
 



  From Jimmy Dick ('65) of FL - 05/09/19, 4:24 AM:
 

  Good morning on Thursday and now that we are clearly over the weekly "HUMP" the downhill slope is building up some steam. But even though we are eager to "gitterdone" for the weekend, make sure and follow a pace that is doable. If we go too fast, we end up doing a sloppy and/or incomplete include job and we find ourselves running off the course. If we are too slow, either the boss or whoever is counting on what we do will know we are just slacking. In such case where our work is very competitive, we might just find ourselves being run over by the competition. I think the picture today makes it very clear. The pace has to be just right to perform to the level needed. After all, we don't want to hold up everyone else or crash and burn on the next sudden change in the workday. And for all things we do, be they work, chores, or whatever, keep your connection on with He who can guide us and we can't go wrong. Have a great and successful Thursday and the upcoming weekend will be very bright indeed. God bless.
 
 

     Thank you, Jimmy!

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.
