08/24/17 - NNHS Newsletter - Barbara Ann

The minute I heard my first love story, I started looking for you,
not knowing how blind that was. Lovers don't finally meet
somewhere. They're in each other all along.”

Maulana Jalalu'ddin Rumi
(30 Sept 1207 - 17 Dec 1273)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

   Summer's winding down, but there's still time for some good ol' summer dance music!

BONUS - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2wbMqRO6lnc - Barbara Ann - The Beach Boys, 1965

 


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

"Barbara Ann" is a song written by Fred Fassert and performed (as "Barbara Anne") by The Regents in 1961. The recording reached a peak position of #13 on the Billboard Hot 100 record chart.

The most famous cover version is by the American rock band The Beach Boys. The song was released as a single on December 20, 1965, with the B-side "Girl Don't Tell Me". The song peaked at #2 in the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 (#1 in Cash Box and Record World) and at #3 in the U.K. It also topped the charts in Germany, Switzerland and Norway. It was The Beach Boys' biggest hit in Italy, reaching #4. The song was also released on the 1965 album Beach Boys' Party!. Brian Wilson and Dean Torrence, who had previously recorded the song as one half of Jan and Dean, are featured on lead vocals. Dean is not credited on the album jacket but "Thanks, Dean" is said by Carl at the end of the track...[1]

FINALLY:

From www.ajokeaday.com - 08/22/17:

I found my 10-year-old son reading a book titled, “How to Bring Up Children Properly”.

My son replied, “That’s why I am reading it; to find out whether you are bringing me up properly.”
