A Summer Place

Love is the expansion of two natures in such fashion
that each include the other, each is enriched by the other.”

- Felix Adler

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

    Ooooh, more dreamy dance music.....

BONUS #1 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tSsiS-v6_6M - Theme From A Summer Place - Percy Faith

BONUS #2 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9SeDGvfR0HU&NR=1 - Theme From A Summer Place - Andy Williams, 1962


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

"Theme from A Summer Place" is a song with lyrics by Mack Discant and music by Max Steiner, written for the 1959 film A Summer Place, which starred Sandra Dee and Troy Donahue. It was recorded for the film by Hugo Winterhalter. Originally known as the "Molly and Johnny Theme", the piece is not the main title theme of the film, but a love theme for the characters played by Dee and Donahue.

Percy Faith recorded the most popular version of the tune in the Columbia 30th Street Studio in New York City,[1] which spent an at-the-time record of nine consecutive weeks at number one on the still-young Billboard Hot 100 singles chart in early 1960.[2] It remains the longest-running number-one instrumental in the history of the chart. It reached number two in the UK. It hit number one in Italy under the title "Scandalo Al Sole".

Faith won a Grammy Award for Record of the Year in 1961 for his recording. This was the first movie theme and the first instrumental to win a Record of the Year Grammy.

Faith re-recorded the song twice – first, in 1969, as a female choral version, then, in 1976, as a disco version titled "Summer Place '76".

In 2008, Faith's original version was ranked at number eighteen on Billboard's top 100 songs during the first fifty years of the Hot 100 chart...[3]

THIS IS BEAUTIFUL. Change Your Words, Changes Your Outlook

This is a wonderful, one minute clip filmed in Glasgow, Scotland. Full of wisdom, and very brief.
It's not a joke, it's not religious, it's not political. It's just...Special.
Enjoy this two minute clip. It has a meaning for all of us.

   Thanks so much, Dools! As I've so often said, there is a power in words - both for good and evil - of which most of us are sadly ignorant.

  Very true.

       Thanks, Brent!

FINALLY:

From www.ajokeaday.com - 08/01/15:

Joe was a single guy living at home with his father and working in the family business.

When he found out he was going to inherit a fortune when his sick father died, he decided he needed a wife with whom to share his fortune.

One evening at an investment seminar he spotted the most beautiful woman he had ever seen. Her beauty took his breath away.

“I may look like just an ordinary man,” he said to her, “but in just a few years, my father will pass away, and I’ll inherit his large fortune.”

Impressed, the woman took his business card and three months later, she became Joe’s stepmother.

Women are so much better at estate planning than men!!

Theme from A Summer Place

Words by Mack Discant, Music by Max Steiner (10 May 1888 – 28 Dec 1971), 1959

Recorded by Percy Faith (07 Apr 1908 – 09 Feb 1976), 1960; The Lettermen, 1965


There's a summer place
Where it may rain or storm
Yet I'm safe and warm
For within that summer place
Your arms reach out to me
And my heart is free from all care

For it knows
There are no gloomy skies
When seen through the eyes
Of those who are blessed with love

And the sweet secret of
A summer place
Is that it's anywhere
Where two people share
All their hopes
All their dreams
All their love

There's a summer place
Where it may rain or storm
Yet I'm safe and warm
In your arms, in your arms
In your arms, in your arms
In your arms, in your arms
