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 Jimmy Dick ('65) of FL - 05/14/19, 6:25 PM:
It has been a very difficult day.
Sometimes life throws you a couple of curve balls but it's how
you respond that makes the difference. I won't go into the
details but it just goes to show that God expects you to respond
to both good things and difficult things with His love and grace
and that's exactly what I'm going to do. It doesn't mean it's
easy but it is what He expects and I'll honor His wishes and try
to be just what He expects me to be. I hope your day was better
than mine, but with a good night's sleep and the Holy Spirit
giving His special guidance I know that tomorrow will be a
better day. I am just so thankful that I know Him, for He
provides comfort when you need it in ways that only he can, so I
am truly blessed. Each of you have a blessed night and I'll see
you again tomorrow in the morning light, if that is His plan. Be
safe out there.
Thank you, Jimmy!
