Things We Said Today

If I go away
What would still remain of me?
The ghost within your eyes?
The whisper in your sighs?
You see...Believe
And I'm always there.”

- Jon Oliva
(b. 22 July 1960)

BONUS #2 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0DcV1UI1B6M - Things We Said Today - The Beatles, Live at Indiana State Fair, September 3, 1964


From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Things_We_Said_Today:

"Things We Said Today" is a song by The Beatles written by Paul McCartney[1] and credited to Lennon/McCartney. It was composed for the film A Hard Day's Night and appears on the soundtrack album. It was also released as the B-side of the "A Hard Day's Night" single in the UK.

McCartney wrote the song in May 1964 while cruising the Caribbean aboard a yacht called Happy Days with his then-girlfriend Jane Asher.[2] Music critic Ian MacDonald said, "The sombre lyric—provoked by the frustrating interruptions of a relationship between two career people—matches the lowering gloom of the music."[1]

The song is one of three main compositions (along with "And I Love Her" and "Can't Buy Me Love") that Paul McCartney wrote for The Beatles' film. Recorded in advance of film production for lip-synching reasons, "Things We Said Today" has a reverse nostalgia premise. McCartney said, "I wrote this on acoustic. It was a slightly nostalgic thing already, a future nostalgia. We’ll remember the things we said today, sometime in the future, so the song projects itself into the future."[3]

McCartney was particularly satisfied with his chord change, F major to B flat major—instead of the more obvious F minor—which first occurs beneath "…wishing you weren't so far away" in the song.[4] John Lennon accentuates McCartney's strident acoustic guitar strumming by triple hitting a low A note on a piano. The tempo of the song moves from ballad to rock and back with a minor to major key change during its middle eight section.

       From George Helliesen ('61) of MI - 06/23/10 - "Elvis":

Dear Miss Typhoon,
 
You may wish to send the following account of attending the Elvis Presley concert at the Paramount Theatre in February of 1956 to Luca for the book. 
 
My friend, Archie Dail (who is now deceased), and I were there. Surely we were, and we saw and heard the Great Elvis.  I remember it like it was yesterday and it will never be forgotten--that is the screaming girls, the great songs and Elvis shaking his boody.  The theatre was full, not any standing room left, and after waiting for at least a half an hour and listening to the screaming girls and watching them jump out of their seats and yelling, "We want Elvis".  The lights finally went dim and his band came out on the stage and played one or two of his hit songs.  Finally Elvis made his way out onto the stage with his big smile and his head somewhat bowed and headed toward center stage.  He walked over to the edge of the stage and as it was some three feet higher than the aisles, he was careful not to get too close for fear of falling off in the darkness.  He brought a stick of gum he was chewing to his lips, took his fingers and pulled it out of his mouth and threw it on the floor.  The place went wild and every girl in the audience ran down front, fell on their knees and starting yelling and feeling for the gum in the dark.  Pandemonium broke out and the place went crazy.  Fifty girls started jumping up and down holding a piece of gum high above their head proclaiming that they had found Elvis's gum.  The entire time Elvis was just standing there with a big grin on his face waiting for the girls to settle down.  I think a few of the boys even wet their pants.  What a show Elvis gave, one that will always be remembered for eternity. 

A side note, Archie was a great Elvis fan and collected every record that he ever made.  We listened to them over and over until the 45's and 33's were smooth and no songs were left.  What a sad closure to one's life.    

   WOWZERONI! Thanks, George - I'll forward your note on to Italy!

 From Sarah Puckett Kressaty ('65) of VA - 06/23/10, 9:55 PM - "Chip":

Carol:

I am SO shocked about Chip! What a sweetheart he was - and incredible photographer. I haven’t kept up with the newsletters and this was quite a shock! What a loss!

S.

   Thank you, Sarah Sugah. It was indeed a dreadful shock. I can scarcely believe it myself even now; it just seems to make no sense whatsoever.

       From My Husband, Paul Harty (Bardolph HS, IL - '61) of IL - 06/23/10:

Every sixty seconds you spend angry, upset or mad, is a full minute of happiness you'll never get back.

Today's Message of the Day is:

Life is short, Break the rules, Forgive quickly, Kiss slowly, Love truly, Laugh uncontrollably, And never regret anything that made you smile. Life may not to be the party we hoped for, but while we're here we should dance.

   So true! Thanks, Dools!


From Norris Perry (Warwick HS - '59) of VA - 06/23/10 - "SATAN":

SATAN
 

A few minutes before the church services started, the congregation were sitting in their pews and talking. Suddenly, Satan appeared at the front of the church.

Everyone started screaming and running for the front entrance, trampling each other in a frantic effort to get away from evil incarnate.

Soon the church was empty except for one elderly gentleman who sat calmly in his pew without moving, seemingly oblivious to the fact that God's ultimate enemy was in his presence.

So Satan walked up to the man and said, 'Do you know who I am?'

The man replied, 'Yep, sure do.'

'Aren't you afraid of me?' Satan asked.

'Nope, sure ain't.' said the man.

'Don't you realize I can kill you with one word?' asked Satan.

'Don't doubt it for a minute,' returned the old man, in an even tone.

'Did you know that I can cause you profound, horrifying AGONY for all eternity?' Persisted Satan. 

'Yep,' was the calm reply.

'And you are still not afraid?' asked Satan.

'Nope,' said the old man.

More than a little perturbed, Satan asked, 'Why aren't you afraid of me?'
 
The man calmly replied, 'Been married to your sister for 48 years.

   Thanks, Norris!

FINALLY:

From ArcaMax Jokes - 06/23/10:

Questioning Faith...

My grandmother, who lived in Tucson, was well-known for her faith and lack of reticence in talking about it. She would go out on the front porch and say, "Praise the Lord!"

Her next door neighbor would shout back, "There ain't no Lord!"

During those days, my grandmother was very poor, so the neighbor decided to prove his point by buying a large bag of groceries and placing it at her door.

The next morning, Grandmother went to the porch and, seeing the groceries, said, "Praise the Lord!"

The neighbor stepped out from behind a tree and said, "I brought those groceries, and there ain't no Lord."

Grandmother replied, "Lord, you not only sent me food but you made the devil pay for it."

*************

Insurance

Following the birth of my second child, I called our insurance company to inquire about my short-term disability policy.

"I just had a baby," I proudly announced to the representative who picked up the phone.

"Congratulations! I'll get all of your information and activate your policy," she assured me. After taking down basic facts like my name and address, she asked, "Was this a work-related incident?"

Things We Said Today

Written by Paul McCartney (b. 18 June 1942) and credited to Lennon/McCartney.

Recorded by The Beatles, 1964
 

You say you will love me
If I have to go
You'll be thinking of me
somehow I will know
Someday when I'm lonely
wishing you weren't so far away
Then I will remember
Things we said today

You said you'll be mine, girl
'til the end of time
These days such a kind girl
seems so hard to find
Someday when we're dreaming
deep in love, not a lot to say
Then we will remember
Things we said today

Me I'm just the lucky kind
Love to hear you say that love is love
And though we may be blind
Love is here to stay and that's enough

To make you mine, girl
be the only one
loves me all the time, girl
we'll go on and on

Some day when we're dreaming
deep in love not a lot to say
Then we will remember
Things we said today

Me I'm just the lucky kind
Love to hear you say that love is love
And though we may be blind
Love is here to stay and that's enough

To make you mine, girl
believe only one
loves me all the time, girl
we'll go on and on

Some day when we're dreaming
deep in love not a lot to say
Then we will remember
Things we said today
