07/18/13 - 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.

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


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]


HEALTH UPDATE:

          My Husband, Paul Harty (Bardolph HS, IL - '61) of NC - 07/18/13:

  Paul was operated on Thursday morning for removal of the squamous cell carcinoma near his left eye. 

Dr. Debi Chaudhuri, widely regarded as the best surgeon in Fayetteville, assured me that he was able to remove all of the cancer, and that the margins were clear.  He actually did some plastic surgery as he went, grafting some skin from behind Paul's left ear to cover the spot.  Dr. Chaudhuri said that it was a difficult surgery because it was so close to his eye, but it went well, and the prognosis is excellent.

FINALLY:

From www.ajokeaday.com - 07/17/13:

An Antartian boy and his father were visiting a mall. They were amazed by almost everything they saw, but especially by two shiny, silver walls that could move apart and back together again.

The boy asked his father, "What is this, Father?" The father [never having seen an elevator] responded "Son, I have never seen anything like this in my life, I don't know what it is."

While the boy and his father were watching wide-eyed, an old lady in a wheel chair rolled up to the moving walls and pressed a button. The walls opened and the lady rolled between them into a small room.

The walls closed and the boy and his father watched small circles of lights with numbers above the walls light up. They continued to watch the circles light up in the reverse direction.

The walls opened up again and a beautiful 24-year-old woman stepped out. The father said to his son, "Go get your mother."

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!
