05/15/18 - NNHS Newsletter - As Time Goes By

Now is the only time there is. Make your now
wow, your minutes miracles, and your days pay.
Your life will have been magnificently lived
and invested, and when you die you will have
made a difference.

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

   You'll forgive me if I revisit Frank today.....  

BONUS - As Time Goes By - Frank Sinatra with clips from Casablanca (1942)


From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/As_Time_Goes_By_%28song%29

"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[1] and heard throughout the film as a leitmotif.[2] 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.[3]

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,[4] 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.[5]...

  Thank you, Joan!
 
 


 From Ruth Ann Reece Horace ('67) of FL - 05/14/18 - "Super Nurse to the rescue":
 
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.

   WOWZERONI! That's absolutely fabulous! Thank you so much for sharing this with us, Ruthie!

As Time Goes By

Words and Music by Herman Hupfeld (01 Feb 1894 - 08 June 1951), 1931
 

[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.
