07/18/10 - NNHS Newsletter - Yesterday

A feeling of sadness and longing,
That is not akin to pain,
And resembles sorrow only
As the mist resembles the rain.”

- Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
(27 Feb 1807 – 24 Mar 1882)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

   I've loved this song ever since I first heard it way back then - and that's why we're revisiting it from exactly four years ago today:

http://nnhs65.com/07-18-06-NNHS-Yesterday.html

BONUS #1 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ONXp-vpE9eU - Yesterday - The Beatles (Paul McCartney), live

BONUS #2 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6-n1Ro456nA - Yesterday - The Beatles - sing-along version


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

"Yesterday" is a song originally recorded by The Beatles for their 1965 album Help!. According to Guinness World Records, "Yesterday" has the most cover versions of any song ever written. The song remains popular today with more than 3,000 recorded cover versions, the first hitting the United Kingdom top 10 three months after the release of Help!. Broadcast Music Incorporated (BMI) asserts that it was performed over seven million times in the 20th century alone. The song was not released as a single in the UK at the time of the US release, and thus never gained number 1 single status in that country. However, "Yesterday" was voted the best song of the 20th century in a 1999 BBC Radio 2 poll of music experts and listeners. In 2000, "Yesterday" was voted the #1 Pop song of all time by MTV and Rolling Stone Magazine. In 1997, the song was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame.

"Yesterday" takes the form of a melancholic acoustic guitar ballad about a breakup. It was the first official recording by The Beatles that relied upon a performance by a single member of the band, namely, Paul McCartney. He was accompanied solely by a string quartet. The final recording differed so greatly from other works by The Beatles that the other three members of the band vetoed the release of the song as a single in the United Kingdom (however, in 1976 it was eventually issued as a single there). Although credited to "Lennon/McCartney", the song was written solely by McCartney. In 2002, McCartney asked Yoko Ono if she would consider reversing the songwriting credits on the song to read "McCartney/Lennon". Ono refused.[1]

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

BBC News named his song "Yesterday" the most covered song in history—by over 2,200 artists[4]—and, according to the BBC has been played more than 7,000,000 times on American television and radio.[5]

      From Dave Arnold ('65) of VA - 05/11/10 - "Class of 1965's 45-Year Reunion":

The NNHS Class of 1965 will hold its 45-Year Reunion on Friday and Saturday, October 15 and 16, 2010 - which is OPEN to all classes!

Friday evening we will meet at R.J.'s Restaurant and Sports Bar. The only cost will be what you choose to eat and drink. The company will be priceless. 

Saturday will be spent at Newport News Park. We've reserved a group shelter that can seat 150 people with sufficient cover to take care of any weather concerns. If you made it to the 55th Birthday Party you'll recall it was held at the Park in one of the smaller shelters. The facility we're using this time is a new addition and will give us lots of flexibility to meet and reminisce. The cost of this event is $15.00 per person through August 31, 2010. After that date the cost will be $20.00 per person. The charge for Saturday will cover your food and beverages.

     From Me ('65) of IL - 07/13/10 - "My Anniversary Gift to You (continued from Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday)":

   I decided to actually work on the site itself and do some long overdue scanning.  As a result, these pages are either entirely new or newly fleshed-out with images:

          http://www.nnhs65.com/cheerleaders-67.html

   Why, you may well wonder, did I concentrate solely on the Class of 1967??  That's because         David Whitley ('67) of VA graciously loaned me his 1967 Anchor back in the Fall of 2006 and it's high time to return it to him!

   Thanks again, Gorgeous!

NOTE: I had planned to finish several more sections, but this is taking even longer (and making me even nutzier!) than I had anticipated, so I'll be working on this for the next few days.


    From Glenn Dye ('60) of TX - 07/15/10 - "NNHS Cheers":

Carol

I was wondering how many of the cheers we could come up with that we did at the football games and other events. The only one that I can remember was this one. (Strawberry shortcake, huckleberry pie, V-I-C-T-O-R-Y! Are we in it? Well, I guess! NEWPORT NEWS HIGH SCHOOL yes, yes, yes. )

Glenn

   Thanks, Glenn!

  From Judy Phillips Allen ('66) of VA - 007/17/10 - "Boogie Through Life ~ Grandma Faith's Website":

I have sent some bad stuff today....mostly about our government and state of affairs, so I will end with something upbeat and much more positive.  I really appreciated it coming my way, so I will share with you.

God bless!

FINALLY:
From ArcaMax Jokes - 07/18/10:

Blonde's Jigsaw Puzzle

A group of blondes walk into a bar. One of the women tells the bartender to line up a row of drinks for all of them. The gals lift their glasses and toast, "Here's to 51 days!" and they proceed to down their drinks. Once again, they tell the bartender to "line 'em up", and once again they toast 51 days and down their drinks.

The bartender says, "I don't get it. Why in the world are you toasting 51 days?"

One of the blondes explains, "We just finished a jigsaw puzzle. It had written on the box '2-4 years,' but we finished it in 51 days!"

Yesterday

Words and Music by Paul McCartney (b. 18 June 1942) (though credited to Lennon/McCartney), 1965

Recorded by The Beatles, 1965
 

Yesterday, all my troubles seemed so far away!
Now it looks as though they're here to stay,
Oh, I believe in yesterday.

Suddenly, I'm not half the man I used to be!
There's a shadow hanging over me,
Oh, yesterday came suddenly.

Why she had to go I don't know; she wouldn't say,
I said something wrong now I long, for yesterday.

Yesterday, love was such an easy game to play!
Now I need a place to hide away,
Oh, I believe in yesterday

Why she had to go I don't know; she wouldn't say,
I said something wrong now I long, for yesterday-ay-ay-ay.

Yesterday, love was such an easy game to play,
Now I need a place to hide away,
Oh, I believe in yesterday!
