“We are not the same persons this year as last; nor are those we love. It is a
happy chance if we, changing, continue to love a changed person.”

- W. Somerset Maugham
(25 Jan 1874 – 16 Dec 1965)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
   I do not know why this song keeps running through my head. I have never been much of a Rolling Stones fan.

BONUS - - The Last Time - Rolling Stones


"The Last Time" is a song by the English rock band The Rolling Stones. This was The Rolling Stones' first British single written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, although Keith Richards admitted in the 2003 book According to the Rolling Stones that '... we came up with The Last Time, which was basically re-adapting a traditional Gospel song that had been sung by the Staple Singers, but luckily the song itself goes back into the mists of time.'. [1] It was the band's third UK single to reach #1, spending four straight weeks at the top on most of the numerous UK music charts (there was no one UK chart at the time considered to be an absolute and definitive authority) in March and early April 1965.It reached No.2 in the Irish charts in March 1965. "The Last Time" was recorded at RCA Studios in Hollywood, California in January 1965. The Last Time was mixed in true stereo, but only bootleggers have a poor quality version, and the stereo version is noticeably shorter than the mono counterpart.

Footage still exists of a number of performances of this song by the Rolling Stones in 1965: from the popular BBC-TV music show Top of the Pops, the 1965 New Musical Express Poll Winners Concert and American TV shows including The Ed Sullivan Show, Shindig! and The Hollywood Palace. A full live performance is also prominently featured in the 2012 re-edit of the 1965 documentary "Charlie Is My Darling". The footage establishes that the distinctive guitar riff was played by Brian Jones while the chords and guitar solo were played by Keith Richards.

A fan favourite and popular song in the Stones' canon, it was regularly performed in concert during the band's 1965, 1966 and 1967 tours. It was then left off their concert setlists until 1997-98, when it was dusted off for the Bridges to Babylon Tour.

Although the song is credited to Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, Richards has mentioned that it was based on a traditional gospel song called "This May Be The Last Time", recorded by The Staple Singers in 1955.[2][3]

The Last Time

Written by Mick Jagger (b. 26 July 1943) and Keith Richards (b. 18 Dec 1943)

(Based on a traditional gospel song called "This May Be The Last Time", recorded by The Staple Singers in 1955.[2][3])

Recorded by The Rolling Stones. 1965

Well, I told you once and I told you twice
But ya never listen to my advice
You don't try very hard to please me
With what you know it should be easy

Well, this could be the last time
This could be the last time
Maybe the last time
I don't know. Oh no. Oh no

Well, I'm sorry girl but I can't stay
Feelin' like I do today
It's too much pain and too much sorrow
Guess I'll feel the same tomorrow

Well, this could be the last time
This could be the last time
Maybe the last time
I don't know. Oh no. Oh no

Well, I told you once and I told you twice
That someone will have to pay the price
But here's a chance to change your mind
'Cuz I'll be gone a long, long time

Well, this could be the last time
This could be the last time
Maybe the last time
I don't know. Oh no. Oh no
Well, this could be the last time
