Love Is Here and Now You're Gone

To find oneself jilted is a blow to one's pride. One must do one's best
to forget it and if one doesn't succeed, at least one must pretend to.”

- Molière
(15 Jan 1622 - 17 Feb 1673)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
   This Golden Oldie from 1967 keeps running through my mind. This will either purge it or solidify it.

BONUS - Love Is Here and Now You're Gone - The Supremes


From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Love_Is_Here_and_Now_You%27re_Gone:

"Love Is Here and Now You're Gone" is a 1967 number-one hit single recorded by The Supremes for the Motown label. The second single from the Supremes' album The Supremes Sing Holland–Dozier–Holland, it was written and produced by Motown's main production team Holland–Dozier–Holland.

The song, which depicts a relationship in the beginning stages of breakup ("You persuaded me to love you/And I did/But instead of tenderness/I found heartache instead"), features several spoken sections from lead singer Diana Ross, who delivers her dialogue in a dramatic, emotive voice. Matching the song's drama influences is an instrumental track, featuring a prominent harpsichord and strings, which recalls both a Hollywood film score and The Left Banke's recently popularized "Baroque rock."

Primarily recorded in Los Angeles, California, thousands of miles away from Motown's regular Hitsville U.S.A. recording studio, "Love Is Here, and Now You're Gone" was the #1 song on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 for one week, from March 4 to March 11, 1967, becoming the group's ninth number-one single. The single was also the group's sixth number one on the R&B charts.[1] The girl group performed the hit record on NBC's The Andy Williams Show on Sunday, January 22, 1967,[2] going to number one two weeks later. Lyricist Eddie Holland names "Love is Here" as his favorite Supremes song.

From My Friend, Susan, of NC - 08/21/15:
 
“Patience means active waiting and enduring. It means staying with something and doing all that we can—working, hoping, and exercising faith; bearing hardship with fortitude, even when the desires of our hearts are delayed. Patience is not simply enduring; it is enduring well!”

- Dieter F. Uchtdorf, April, 2010
(b. 06 Nov 1940)

    Thanks so much, Susan!


From Joan Lauterbach Krause ('60) of VA - 08/22/18:

 From Bill Hobbs ('66) of Northern VA - 08/20/19, 8:27 PM - " 'Once Upon A Time A Long Time Ago' - Golden Years (video)":

A good friend sent this 3-1/2 minute fabulous trip down memory lane. If you are at my age +/- ten years, you should feel the emotion.

Bill


"Once Upon A Time A Long Time Ago" - Golden Years (video)

We that remember those days will see us in this video... The Old Days as we lived it! If you don't have these memories, you may want to share this with someone in your family or among your friends who will remember as some of these scenes are shown. You will remember the shirts, the cars, the streets, the clothes styles... It was us.. Enjoy!

Pass it on to your kids and grandkids..

I don't know exactly where Memory Lane is located, but enjoy the trip.

     WOW! Thank you, Billy! These images were so distant, yet so vivid in my mind. The fact that I've been binge watching 1958 episodes of The Naked City on Roku helped, too!


From My Friend, Jim, of IL - 08/21/19, 4:23 PM:

     Thank you so much, Jim! That's another reason I vastly prefer old movies and television shows to anything made in the last 50 or so years - my ears and spirit are not assaulted by a constant barrage of blasphemy and vulgarity!
 
 


    From Jimmy Hines ('64) of VA - 08/21/18:

  Thanks, Santa Jim!

From the Head Flagtwirler of 1965, Janice McCain Rose of VA - 08/08/19, 12:57 PM - "Millenials have now entered the workforce...." (#12 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...

  Thanks, Janice, though I personally think that this type of "brilliance" is hardly limited to Millenials!

FINALLY:

From www.ajokeaday.com - 08/21/19:

His request approved, the news photographer quickly used a cell phone to call the local airport to charter a flight. He was told a twin-engine plane would be waiting for him at the airport. Arriving at the airfield, he spotted a plane warming up outside a hanger. He jumped in with his bag, slammed the door shut, and shouted, "Let’s go!"

The pilot taxied out, swung the plane into the wind and took off. Once in the air, the photographer instructed the pilot, "Fly over the valley and make low passes so I can take pictures of the fires on the hillsides."

"Why?" asked the pilot.

"Because I’m a photographer for cable news," he responded, "and I need to get some close up shots."

The pilot was strangely silent for a moment, finally he stammered, ‘So, what you’re telling me, is… you’re NOT my flight instructor?"

Love Is Here and Now You're Gone

Written by Brian Holland (b. 15 Feb 1941), Lamont Dozier (b. 16 June 1941),
and
Edward Holland, Jr. (b. 30 Oct 1939)

Recorded by The Supremes, 1967
 

Love is here and
Oh, my darling, now you're gone
Love is here and
Oh, my darling, now, now you're gone

You persuaded me to love you
And I did
But instead of tenderness
I found heartache instead
Into your arms I fell
So unaware of the loneliness
That was waiting there

You closed the door to your heart
And you turned the key, locked your love away from me

Love is here and
Oh, my darling, now you're gone

You made me love you
And oh, my darling, now you're gone
You said loving you
Would make life beautiful
With each passing day
But as soon as love
Came into my heart
You turned and you walked, just walked away

You stripped me of my dreams
You gave me faith, then took my hope
Look at me now

Look at me
See what loving you has done to me
Look at my face
See how cryin' has left it's trace

After you made me all your own
Then you left me all alone
You made your words sound so sweet
Knowing that your love I couldn't keep

My heart cries out for your touch
But you're not there
And the lonely cry fades in the air

Love is here and
Oh, my darling, now you're gone
Love is here and
Oh, my darling, now you're gone

You made me love you
Oh, my darling
Now you're gone
You made me love you
Oh, my darling
Now you're gone
