Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

   Can you believe it?!? Today marks the eighteenth anniversary of our website. Thanks for all your generous support in so many ways - especially recently!

BONUS #1 - The Anniversary Waltz - Bing Crosby - deliciously scratchy sound!

BONUS #2 - The Anniversary Waltz - Vera Lynn

BONUS #3 - The Anniversary Waltz - Connie Francis - with video of Lucy and Desi!


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

The Anniversary Waltz is a popular song written by Dave Franklin, the lyrics by Al Dubin. The song was published in 1941. It has been covered by Vera Lynn and Connie Francis. The title "Anniversary Waltz" is often mistakenly and confusingly used to refer to the entirely unrelated Anniversary Song.

The Anniversary Waltz

Lyrics by Al Dubin (10 June 1891 - 11 Feb 1945);
Music by David Franklin, 1941


We just discovered each other
Tonight when the lights were low
One dance led up to another
And now I can't let you go

So tell me I may always dance
The Anniversary Waltz with you
Tell me this is real romance
An anniversary dream come true

Let this be the answer
To our future years
Through millions of smiles
And a few little tears
May I always listen to
The Anniversary Waltz
With you

Let this be the answer
To our future years
Through millions of smiles
And a few little tears
May I always listen to
The Anniversary Waltz
With you...
