08/16/18 - 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)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

    Here's another great old love song, this one from 1958 - YEA!

BONUS #1 - For Your Love - Ed Townsend

BONUS #2 - For Your Love - Johnny Mathis

BONUS #3 - For Your Love - The Lettermen


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.....

BOAT LIFT - outstanding video clip

We certainly were busy watching the news right after 9/11, but we never saw this......BOAT-LIFT OF 9/11.....
You know, in the 17 years since this happened, this is the first time I've ever seen this...I don't even remember seeing/hearing about this evacuation on the news!
The fact is, it was all done in 9 hours ... 500,000 people!

This is a video well worth watching:

BOATLIFT, An Untold Tale of 9/11 Resilience

The guy at the end (same guy who is at the beginning) has some great words to live by for all of us.
Watch till the end. You won't regret it.
We will never forget what happened that day.

   Thank you so much, Phil! I have seen this before, but only once, and it was about five years ago. Thanks for sharing it with us!  


From My Friend, Stephen, of AZ - 08/13/18:

    Thanks, Stephen!

Here he iss!" - "...More foolish I grow..."

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)
