07/18/18 - 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 over fifty years ago.

BONUS - Yesterday - Paul McCartney and The Beatles, 1965, 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]

From My Friend, Susan, of NC
- 07/16/15:

Let us relish life as we live it, find joy in the journey, and share our love with friends and family. One day each of us will run out of tomorrows... Our realization of what is most important in life goes hand in hand with gratitude for our blessings... Despite the changes which come into our lives and with gratitude in our hearts, may we fill our days—as much as we can—with those things which matter most. May we cherish those we hold dear and express our love to them in word and in deed.”

- Thomas S. Monson, October 2008

FINALLY:

From www.ajokeaday.com - 07/17/18:

Two prisoners were making their escape over the jailhouse roof when one of them dislodged a tile. “Who’s there?" shouted a guard.

The first prisoner replied with a convincing imitation of a cat’s meow. Reassured, the guard went back to his rounds. But then the second prisoner dislodged another tile.

The guard repeated, “Who’s there?”

“The other cat,” answered the prisoner.

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!
