Friends and Schoolmates,
Today's Newsletter theme is brought to you at the suggestion of June Veneris Collie (Hampton HS - '62) of VA.
BONUS - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YTaWayUE5XA - Yesterday Once More - The Carpenters
From June Veneris Collie (Hampton HS - '62) of VA - 08/13/17 - "Suggested song":
My 1962 HHS class is celebrating our 55th reunion on August 26th. I found the song “Yesterday Once More” by the Carpenters https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YTaWayUE5XA is very fitting for that time. Could you feature that song in your 26th newsletter? It is hard to believe 55 years have gone by – and I remember some of it just like yesterday!
I enjoy your newsletter very much and Thank You for your time and effort!
June Veneris Collie
Oh, certainly, June! I'd be delighted! Great choice! Thanks so much - and y'all have fun!
|"Yesterday Once More", written by
Richard Carpenter and
John Bettis, is a hit song by
The Carpenters from their 1973 album
Now & Then. Composed in the
of E and as originally presented on the album, "Yesterday Once
More" segues into a long medley, consisting of eight covers of 1960s
tunes incorporated into a faux oldies radio program. The work takes
up the entire B-side of the album.
The single version of the song peaked at number 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart becoming their 5th number two hit and making them the act with the second most number two hits on the chart behind only Madonna. The song also peaked at number 1 on the easy listening chart, becoming their eighth number 1 on that chart in four years. It is The Carpenters' biggest-selling record worldwide and their best-selling single in the UK, peaking at number 2. Richard Carpenter admitted, on a Japanese documentary, that it was his favorite of all the songs that he had written. He has performed an instrumental version at concerts.
