“The history of the world is the record of a man
in quest for his daily bread and butter
.”

- Hendrik Willem van Loon

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

   How about a Golden Oldie from 1964?

BONUS - Bread and Butter - The Newbeats, 1964

                


From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bread_and_Butter_%28The_Newbeats_song%29:

"Bread and Butter" is a 1964 song by The Newbeats. Written by Larry Parks and Jay Turnbow, "Bread and Butter" was the group's first and most popular hit, reaching #2 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in September 1964 for two weeks,[1][2] while attaining the same position on Cashbox for one week.[3] The song reached #15 in the United Kingdom[4] and #8 in Australia. It sold over one million copies in the United States, attaining a gold disc.[1][4]

"Bread and Butter" served as The Newbeats' demo in an effort to obtain a recording contract with Hickory Records. They were then asked to formally record the track for the label.[1]

The opening two-chord piano riff and the lead falsetto singing voice of Larry Henley are notable features of the song...

  GOOD MORNING! Well, Monday, Monday is back again but you surely don't have to be blue. Just open your heart and let the Spirit engulf you and God will take care of you. Not just on Monday but on every day. Be blessed, everyone, and have a bright and shining Monday no matter what the weather. You woke up this morning, blessed with another day. So use it to get things done with his love and care and you'll be a success as you follow His Way.

     Thank you, Jimmy!
