05/15/19 - 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.

- Mark Victor Hansen

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)


"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]...

  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!

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.
