08/13/19 - NNHS Newsletter - Am I That Easy to Forget?

“It's so easy to forget the things that happen
to you because it all happens so fast.
Sometimes I'll just remember weird things.”

Dear Friends and Schoolmates, 
 
 
 Good ol' sad love songs!  Who could sing them more sweetly than Jim Reeves??

BONUS - Am I That Easy to Forget? - Jim Reeves


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

"Am I That Easy to Forget" is the title of a popular song written by country music singer Carl Belew and W.S. Stevenson and published in 1958. Belew recorded his song in Nashville on December 17, 1958, and released the single in March 1959, where it reached number nine on the U.S. country music chart. Other country music artists who have recorded cover versions of the song include: Skeeter Davis (#11 country, 1960); Ernest Tubb (1960); Gene Vincent (1966); George Jones (1967); Patti Page (1968); Jim Reeves (#12 country, 1973); and Prairie Oyster (1991).

In 1960, singer and actress Debbie Reynolds recorded a version of "Am I That Easy to Forget" that reached number 25 on the U.S. pop chart. The highest charting version of the song on the U.S. pop chart was recorded by singer Engelbert Humperdinck on August 11, 1967. Released as a single in late 1967[1] from his album The Last Waltz,[2] it reached number 18 on the Hot 100 and number one on the Easy Listening chart in early 1968.[3] Humperdinck's version was also a big hit in England, where it spent two weeks at number three on the UK Singles Chart,[4] as well as in Ireland, where it spent three weeks at number one on the Irish Singles Chart. Humperdinck himself recorded a special version for Italy, in the local language, entitled "Dimenticarti non potrei" ("I couldn't forget you").

From the Head Flagtwirler of 1965, Janice McCain Rose of VA - 08/08/19, 12:57 PM - "Millenials have now entered the workforce...." (#3 in a series of 16):
   Here is clear evidence that millennials have now entered the work force. Alas, the world will never be the same again...

Am I That Easy to Forget

Words and Music by Carl Belew and W.S. Stevenson, 1958
 
Recorded by
Jim Reeves, 1973


They say you've found somebody new,
But that won't stop my loving you.
I just can't let you walk away,
Forget the love I had for you.

Guess I could find somebody, too,
But I don't want no one but you.
How could you leave without regret?
Am I that easy to forget?

Before you leave be sure you find
You want your new love much more than mine.
'Cause I'll just say we've never met,
If I'm that easy to forget?
If I'm that easy to forget?
