05/31/14 - NNHS Newsletter - Sea of Love

Love is a smoke made with the fume of sighs.
Being purged, a fire sparkling in lovers eyes.
Being vexed, a sea nourished with lovers tears.
What is it else? A madness most discreet,
a choking gall and a preserving sweet.

- Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
(28 Aug 1749 – 22 Mar 1832)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

   This golden oldie from 1959 always makes me smile!
 
 I think it's because I always associate it with my beautiful cousin        Cheryl (White Wilson - James Blair HS / John Marshall HS - '64 - of VA) (because we spent a lot of time together that summer and we sang it all the time!), and she always makes me smile, too!

BONUS - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EroRtEUmZcU - Sea of Love - Phil Phillips, 1959


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

"Sea of Love" is a song written by John Phillip Baptiste (aka Phil Phillips) and George Khoury. Phillips' 1959 recording of the song peaked at #1 on the U.S. Billboard R&B chart and #2 on the Billboard Hot 100.[1] In the UK, Marty Wilde covered the song, and Phillips' version failed to chart there. It was the only top 40 chart song for Phillips, who never recorded another hit.[2]

The song has been covered by a number of artists since then, most notably by The Honeydrippers, whose version (from the album The Honeydrippers: Volume One) reached #3 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in early 1985[3] and #1 on the adult contemporary chart in 1984.[4] "Sea of Love" made the Top 40 one other time, when Del Shannon took it to #33 in 1981. Tom Waits gave the song a darker twist for the soundtrack to the 1989 Harold Becker film Sea of Love starring Al Pacino and Ellen Barkin, and Waits included it on his 2006 collection Orphans: Brawlers, Bawlers & Bastards.

Baptiste, who was working as a bellboy in Lake Charles, Louisiana, USA, wrote "Sea of Love" for a love interest. He was introduced to local record producer George Khoury, who brought Baptiste into his studio to record the song. At Khoury's request, Baptiste took the stage name of Phil Phillips. The song, originally credited to Phil Phillips with The Twilights, was released on a small record label owned by Khoury, but due to its success was eventually leased to Mercury Records. Despite the song's success, Phillips claims that he has only ever received US$6,800 for recording it...[2]

FINALLY:

From www.ajokeaday.com - 05/30/14:

An obnoxious drunk stumbled into the front door of a bar and ordered a drink.

The bartender said, "No way, buddy, you're too drunk."

A few minutes later, the drunk came in though the bathroom. Again he slurred, "Give me a drink," and the bartender said, "No, man, I told you last time -- you're too drunk."

Five minutes later the guy came in though the back door and ordered a drink; again the bartender said, "You're too drunk."

The drunk scratched his head and said, "Dang, I must be. The last two places said the same thing."

[aka Phil Phillips] (b. 14 Mar 1926)


Come with me my love to the sea
The sea of love
I want to tell you
How much I love you
I'm drowning in a sea of love

Do you remember the night we met?
That's the night I knew you were my pet
I want to tell you
How much I love you
I'm drowning in a sea of love

Come with me to the sea

Do you remember the night we met?
That's the night I just knew you were my pet
I want to tell you
How much I love you
I'm down in a sea of love

Come with me to the sea

Do you remember the night we met?
That's the night I just knew you were my pet
I want to tell you
How much I love you
I'm down in a sea of love

Come with me to the sea

Do you remember the night we met?
That's the night I just knew you were my pet
I want to tell you
How much I love you
I'm down here in a sea of love

Come with me to the sea

Come with me my love to the sea
The sea of love
I want to tell you
How much I love you
I'm down here in a sea of love

Come with me to the sea
