Ed Townsend - Edward Benjamin Townsend - (April 16, 1929 - August 13, 2003) was an African American attorney, songwriter, and producer. He was best known for performing his composition, "For Your Love," a rhythm and blues doo wop classic, and as the co-writer of "Let's Get It On" with Marvin Gaye.
The year Townsend graduated from high school, he was elected to the International American Methodist Episcopal Youth Council (IAMEYC). The honor let him travel worldwide before enrolling in college the next year at Arkansas State College.
After graduating, he taught for a year. Although he never formally practiced law, he frequently used his law training to assist other entertainers in negotiating their recording and performance contracts.
In 1951, Townsend joined the United States Marine Corps and served in Korea. After his discharge, he recorded a number of singles for various labels, none of which made the charts. Ironically, in 1958 he took his ballad, "For Your Love" to Capitol Records, hoping to interest Nat “King” Cole, but, impressed with his voice, Capitol signed him to record it himself.
Dick Clark had just started American Bandstand on television and invited Townsend to sing the very first month the show aired. He was an overnight success and the song shot up the charts, reaching #13 on the US pop chart.....
THIS WEEK'S BIRTHDAYS:
From My Friend, Susan, of NC - 08/16/15:
|“We have neighbors to bless, children to protect, the poor to lift up, and the truth to defend. We have wrongs to make right, truths to share, and good to do.”|
Thanks so much, Susan!
From Mayim Bialik (North Hollywood High School, CA - '93) of CA - 08/13/15 - "MUSIC, MUSES, MUSING, MISSING":
|In the year following a
close loved one's passing, many traditional Jews do not listen to music.
Four months in here’s how it’s going for me.
Thank you so very much for sharing this, Mayim! Our hearts still ache for you as you make your way through this difficult time.
Even after all these years, I myself was totally unfamiliar with this particular aspect of traditional Jewish mourning. I have included it today so that we may all come to a better understanding of each other. School is still in session.
From Linda May Bond Crayton ('66) of VA - 08/15/15:
you, Linda May!
From My Friend, Liam, of NC - 08/15/15:
|Thank you, Liam!|
“She was washing all the dishes by hand, so I bought her a machine. I
bought her a lawnmower. That’s what you do when you’re in love.”

I am rather pleased with him. He was very simple to crochet, so long as one made sure one always ended up with 35 stitches at the end of each round after the initial increases, and he didn't require too much other brain power - ssimple sstripes, ssimple sstitches, ssimple sstuffing and ssimple asssembly! Here he iss!" - "...More foolish I grow..."
BONUS FOOLISH RECIPES:
From www.ajokeaday.com - 08/15/14:
During a dinner party, the hosts’ two little children
entered the dinning room totally nude and walked slowly around the table. The
parents were so embarrassed that they pretended nothing was happening and kept
the conversation going. The guests cooperated and also continued as if nothing
extraordinary was happening.

For Your Love
Written and recorded by
(16 Apr 1929 - 13 Aug 2003), 1958
For your love, oh, I would do anything
I would do anything, fo-o-or your love
For your kiss (ahh, ahh, ahh, ahh), oh, I would go anywhere (ahh, ahh, ahh, ahh)
I would go (ahh, ahh, ahh, ahh), anywhere, fo-o-r your kiss
More foolish I grow
With each heart beat
But we all get foolish
That's why I repeat
For your love (ahh, ahh, ahh, ahh), oh, I would do anything (ahh, ahh, ahh, ahh)
I would do anything, fo-o-or your kiss
I would do anything, fo-o-or your love (anything, anything, anything)
Fo-o-or your love
(ahh, ahh, ahh, ahh, ahh, ooh)
