“I watched my foolish heart expand
In the lazy glow of benevolence,
O'er the various modes of man's belief.
”

- Robert Browning
(07 May 1812 - 12 Dec 1889)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

     This is one of        my sister's (Eleanor Buckley Nowitzky - '59 - of NC) favorite songs, so I always like to use it for her birthday.

     Happy Birthday, Lady!

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

"My Foolish Heart" is a popular song that was published in 1949.

The music was composed by Victor Young and the lyric was written by Ned Washington. The song was introduced by the singer Martha Mears in the 1949 film of the same name. The song failed to escape critics' general laceration of the film. Time wrote in its review that "nothing offsets the blight of such tear-splashed excesses as the bloop-bleep-bloop of a sentimental ballad on the sound track."[1] Nevertheless, the song was nominated for an Oscar, losing out to "Baby, It's Cold Outside" by Frank Loesser.

The song was also a popular success, with two recordings of the song listed among the top 30 on the Billboard charts in 1950. Gordon Jenkins's recording of "My Foolish Heart", Sandy Evans, vocal, reached the top ten on the charts. However, Billy Eckstine's version became a million seller, spending 19 weeks on the charts and peaking at number six...

My Foolish Heart

Music by Victor Young (08 Aug 1900 – 10 Nov 1956)

Words by Ned Washington (15 Aug 15, 1901 – 20 Dec 1976), 1949


The night is like a lovely tune, beware my foolish heart!
How white the ever constant moon, take care, my foolish heart!
There's a line between love and fascination,
That's hard to see on an evening such as this,
For they give the very same sensation.
When you are lost in the passion of a kiss.
Your lips are much too close to mine, beware my foolish heart!
But should our eager lips combine, then let the fire start.
For this time it isn't fascination, or a dream that will fade and fall apart,
It's love this time, it's love, my foolish heart!
