Have You Ever Been Lonely?

“It is strange to be known so universally and yet to be so lonely.”

- Albert Einstein
(14 Mar 1879 – 18 Apr 1955)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

   I think this hot, muggy weather has finally put me into a bit of a melancholy mood.  Sigh....

BONUS #1 - - Have You Ever Been Lonely? - Teresa Brewer, 1960

BONUS #2 - - Have You Ever Been Lonely? - Patsy Cline and Jim Reeves


"Have You Ever Been Lonely?" is a popular song with music by Peter De Rose and lyrics by Billy Hill (writing under the name of George Brown), published in 1932. It has been recorded by many singers, becoming a standard.

Ted Lewis and Ray Noble with vocalist Al Bowlly [1] had successful records in 1933. A small cover war emerged between Jaye P. Morgan and Karen Chandler in 1955. The song was a pop chart entry by the Caravelles, a British girl group, in 1964. An electronically edited duet featuring Jim Reeves and Patsy Cline, who never recorded together while alive, became a top 10 country-western hit in the early 1980s.


  From Donnie Johnson ('70) of NC - 07/09/15:

O.K., my TYPHOON FAMILY, I went to the doctor on Thursday.

He found cancer in my bladder. I'm going tomorrow (Friday) to the hospital to have it cut out.

I'm hoping he can get all of it.

I need all the praying the family can do. We know how powerful my family can be; I saw it first hand. Help me out.

Love all of the Typhoon family.

From - 07/09/15:

At a recent computer expo (COMDEX), Bill Gates reportedly compared the computer industry with the auto industry and stated "If GM had kept up with technology like the computer industry has, we would all be driving twenty-five dollar cars that got 1000 mi/gal."

Recently General Motors addressed this comment by releasing the statement: "Yes, but would you want your car to crash twice a day?"

Not only that, but....

Every time they repainted the lines on the road you would have to buy a new car.

Occasionally your car would die on the freeway for no reason, and you would just accept this, restart and drive on.

Occasionally, executing a maneuver would cause your car to stop and fail and you would have to re-install the engine. For some strange reason, you would accept this too.

You could only have one person in the car at a time, unless you bought "Car95" or "CarNT".

But, then you would have to buy more seats.

Macintosh would make a car that was powered by the sun, was reliable, five times as fast, twice as easy to drive, but would only run on five percent of the roads.

The Macintosh car owners would get expensive Microsoft upgrades to their cars, which would make their cars run much slower.

The oil, gas and alternator warning lights would be replaced by a single "general car default" warning light.

New seats would force everyone to have the same size butt.

The airbag system would say "are you sure?" before going off.

If you were involved in a crash, you would have no idea what happened.

Have You Ever Been Lonely?

Music by Peter De Rose (10 Mar 1900 - 23 Apr 1953), 1932 or 1934;

Lyrics by Billy Hill (writing under the name of George Brown) (14 Jan 1899 - 24 Dec 1940)

Originally a hit for the Paul Whiteman Orchestra, it was recorded
Teresa Brewer in 1960, Patsy Cline in 1961, and Jim Reeves in 1962.


Have you ever been lonely?
Have you ever been blue?
Have you ever loved someone,
Just as I love you?

Can't you see that I'm sorry,
For each mistake I've made?
Can't you see I've changed dear?
Can't you see that I've paid?

Oh, be a little forgiving.
Take me back in your heart.
How can I go on living,
Now that we're apart?

If you knew what I'd been through,
You'd know why I ask you:
Have you ever been lonely?
Have you ever been blue?

Be a little forgiving.
Take me back in your heart.
How can I go on living,
Now that we're apart?

If you knew what I'd been through,
You'd know why I ask you:
Have you ever been lonely?
Have you ever been blue?
