BONUS - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AY62QByUYJQ - As Time Goes By - Frank Sinatra with clips from Casablanca (1942)
|"As Time Goes By" is a song written by
Herman Hupfeld in 1931. It became most famous in 1942 when it was
sung by Sam (Dooley
Wilson) in the movie
Casablanca. The song was voted #2 on the
AFI's 100 Years... 100 Songs special, commemorating the best songs
in film. It was used as a fanfare for
Warner Bros. Pictures since 1998.
Herman Hupfeld wrote "As Time Goes By" for the 1931 Broadway musical Everybody's Welcome. In the original show, it was sung by Frances Williams. It was recorded that year by several artists, including Rudy Vallee.
The song was re-introduced in 1942 in the film Casablanca, sung by Dooley Wilson accompanied by pianist Elliot Carpenter and heard throughout the film as a leitmotif. Wilson was unable to record a single of the song at the time due to a musicians' strike, leading the studio to re-issue Vallee's 1931 recording and giving Vallee a number one hit in 1942.
The song's famous opening line, "You must remember this...", is actually the start of the song's chorus as it was originally written and performed. Wilson did not sing the preceding verse in Casablanca, however, and most subsequent recordings have followed the film's lead in omitting it, leading to its being virtually unknown to most listeners.
In addition to the American Film Institute including it as number two in their list of the 100 best songs in film, National Public Radio included it in their NPR 100, the 1999 list of the most important American musical works of the 20th century as compiled by their music editors....

In light of this "revolting new development", as our household is one of those Major Users of Bandwidth, the remaining regular issues of the NNHS Newsletter THROUGH THE END OF MAY will be mostly imageless.
Please save your images or documents, as I'll not be able to post any of them, nor scan and post any new ones of my own except in extreme cases of need. (If they're already in my files, that's different.)
This will not apply of course to Memorial Editions. Once we return to Fayetteville, this should no longer be an issue.

From Joe Drewry ('58) of VA - 05/12/11 - "Hall of Fame dinner is this Sunday":
|One of our
NNHS heroes will be inducted into the
Peninsula Athletic Hall of Fame Sunday night.
starred at NNHS in both football and basketball and graduated in
(June) 1944. He then became a triple-threat tailback for
W&M. In 1949, Lex threw 18 touchdown
passes, a national record at that time. Also in 1949, Lex was runner-up
to Sam Snead as Virginia’s Athlete of the Year.
Buddy is one of 6 inductees to be honored at the Peninsula Athletic Hall of Fame during the May 15, 2011 (this Sunday night) ceremony at the Boo Williams Sports Complex. Buddy is the only one of the 6 inductees that has not had a single person make a reservation in his name. He is also the only NNHS inductee.
NNHS graduated it's last class in 1971, 40 years ago. Since that time, Typhoon alums have prided themselves on keeping the history, the memories, and their support of each other going. We often sign-off our emails to each other with
The lack of any Typhoon
response to what should be a celebration of one of our own is an
WOWZERONI! Thank you, Joe!
From Norris Perry (Warwick HS - '59) of VA - 05/09/11 - " Grace!":
Take a look at what is sitting outside Scott's classroom
window. :) Scott teaches 12 grade English at Heritage High

English or needs a friend.
OH, WOW! How cool! Thanks, Joan!

From My Husband, Paul Harty (Bardolph HS, IL - '61) of IL - 05/12/11 - "Why Go To Church?":
Why go to Church? (This is good)
If you're spiritually alive, you're going to love this! If you're spiritually dead, you won't want to read it. If you're spiritually curious, there is still hope!
Why Go To Church?
A Church goer wrote a letter to the editor of a newspaper and complained that it made no sense to go to church every Sunday... "I've gone for 30 years now," he wrote, "and in that time I have heard something like 203,000 sermons. But for the life of me, I can't remember a single one of them. So, I think I'm wasting my time and the pastors are wasting theirs by giving sermons at all."
This started a real controversy in the "Letters to the Editor" column, much to the delight of the editor. It went on for weeks until someone wrote this clincher:
"I've been married for 30 years now. In that time my wife has cooked some 32,000 meals. But, for the life of me, I cannot recall the entire menu for a single one of those meals. But I do know this.. They all nourished me and gave me the strength I needed to do my work. If my wife had not given me these meals, I would be physically dead today. Likewise, if I had not gone to church for nourishment, I would be spiritually dead today!" When you are DOWN to nothing... God is UP to something! Faith sees the invisible, believes the incredible and receives the impossible! Thank God for our physical AND our spiritual nourishment!
All right, now that you're done reading, send it on! I think everyone should read this! "When Satan is knocking at your door, simply say, "Jesus, could you get that for me?"
From Joyce Lawrence Cahoon ('65) of VA - 05/14/11 - "Wonderful Miracle!!":
This will surely bring tears!!

Thanks so much, Joyce!

As Time Goes By
Words and Music
by Herman Hupfield
[This day and
age we're living in
Gives cause for apprehension
With speed and new invention
And things like fourth dimension.
Yet we get a trifle weary
With Mr. Einstein's theory.
So we must get down to earth at times
Relax relieve the tension
And no matter what the progress
Or what may yet be proved
The simple facts of life are such
They cannot be removed.]
You must remember this
A kiss is just a kiss, a sigh is just a sigh.
The fundamental things apply
As time goes by.
And when two lovers woo
They still say, "I love you."
On that you can rely
No matter what the future brings
As time goes by.
Moonlight and love songs
Never out of date.
Hearts full of passion
Jealousy and hate.
Woman needs man
And man must have his mate
That no one can deny.
It's still the same old story
A fight for love and glory
A case of do or die.
The world will always welcome lovers
As time goes by.
Oh yes, the world will always welcome lovers
As time goes by.
