BONUS - 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....

From Wayne Agee

05/12/18 - "How Wolves Change Rivers":
My daughter Sandy is a
Critical Care Nurse. She has been working as a traveling nurse for the
past three years, and at St. Joseph's in Tampa, Florida before that,
with recovering heart surgery patients. Her latest assignment has been
in San Jose, CA. This past Saturday, while returning from a week long
trip to Hawaii, a passenger on the plane with her and her friends,
passed out over the Pacific Ocean two hours from any land. Her training
kicked in, and she helped the flight crew care for the young man. Turned
out he had gotten food poisoning and let himself get very dehydrated.
She hung a bag of IV fluids and monitored him for an hour and a half
before finally getting to go to the restroom, which had been her
destination when he passed out. Alaska Airlines gave her a $250 credit
for the assistance and his new bride couldn't stop thanking her for
saving him. All she would say was that this was an easy save compared to
what she is used to dealing with in her daily job.
We are very proud of her. She is working on her Doctorate to become a Nurse Practitioner, and also one on Nursing Education with plans on teaching Critical Care to future nurses.
