08/16/15 - NNHS Newsletter - For Your Love

Love has no desire but to fulfill itself. To melt and be
like a running brook that sings its melody to the night.
To wake at dawn with a winged heart and give thanks
for another day of loving.”

Khalil Gibran 
(06 Jan 1883 - 10 Apr 1931)

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

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.[1]

Although he was born in Fayetteville, Tennessee, his family soon moved to Memphis where his father was called to pastor an African Methodist Episcopal church.

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.....

    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.

http://groknation.com/parenting/music-muses-musing-missing/

   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:

  AGREED! Thank you, Linda May!

 

 
 


From My Friend, Liam, of NC - 08/15/15:

FINALLY:

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.

After going all the way around the room, the children left, and there was a moment of silence at the table, during which one child was heard to say, “You see, it is vanishing cream!”

For Your Love

 Written and recorded by Ed Townsend (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)
