Don't Worry Baby

“Worry is interest paid on trouble before it comes due.”

- William Ralph Inge
(06 June 1860 - 26 Feb 1954)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

   Worry - one of my better skills... quite possibly one of my best talents.....

BONUS - Don't Worry Baby - The Beach Boys


From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Don%27t_Worry_Baby:

"Don’t Worry Baby" is a song written by Brian Wilson and Roger Christian, produced by Wilson and first recorded by the Beach Boys. The band's version, a tender ballad with falsetto lead vocal by Brian, was first released on their 1964 album Shut Down Volume 2. It was also released as the B-side of The Beach Boys' first U.S. number-one hit single, "I Get Around", managing to reach number 24 on the U.S. Hot 100 in its own right. The single was released in the United States in May 1964 through Capitol Records. It was released a month later, in June 1964, in the United Kingdom.

Brian Wilson cited the song as his attempt to capture the essence of his all-time favourite record, "Be My Baby" by the Ronettes, who would later cover his song. At one time, Wilson listened to his 45 record of the song he "could never do" up to 100 times a day.

John Lennon's 1980 hit, "(Just Like) Starting Over", is considered by some to somewhat borrow from the chorus melody of "Don't Worry Baby", while Garbage's 1998 hit, "Push It", contains an interpolation of its chorus.

The song "Don't Worry Baby" is part of the The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's 500 Songs that Shaped Rock and Roll list.[1], and ranked as the 176th greatest song of all time in Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.

From Bob Allen ('51) of VA - 08/26/18 - "Class of 1952":
 
A penpal living in Berryville, VA sent me a message:

"Can you tell me who is still alive in my class of 1952 NNHS ? I told her I would try to find out? Their president, Carl Jett, just passed away."

I am in class of 1951, and we have good records of who and where our mates are now. I know no one in class of 1952? Any help would be appreciated.

Dr. Bob Allen, NNHS 1952 class vice president.

   YIKES! Thank you, Bob! I delayed posting this for one day, hoping something brilliant would occur to me, but alas, nothing did.

    In all these years, I've only had one subscriber from the Class of 1952, Carrie Forest Fox of VA. In case she doesn't see this, I'll forward your message to her, and also to Carl's brother,    Don Jett (NNHS / Warwick HS - '60) of FL.

    If anyone else has any answers, please let me know.


 From Domi O'Brien ('64) of NH - 08/26/18:

Don't Worry Baby

Written by Brian Wilson (b. 20 June 1942) and Roger Christian (03 July 1934 – 11 July 1991)

Sung with Lorrie Morgan (b. 27 June 1959) on lead vocals and The Beach Boys backup vocals


Well, its been building up inside of me
For oh, I don't know how long;
I don't know why, but I keep thinking
Something's bound to go wrong.

But she looks in my eyes
And makes me realize
When she says, "Don't worry, baby."
Don't worry, baby,
Don't worry, baby,
Everything will turn out alright.

Don't worry, baby,
Don't worry, baby,
Don't worry, baby.

I guess I should've kept my mouth shut
When I started to brag about my car,
But I can't back down now because
I pushed the other guys too far.

She makes me come alive
And makes me wanna drive
When she says, "Don't worry baby."
Don't worry, baby,
Don't worry, baby,
Everything will turn out alright.

Don't worry, baby,
Don't worry, baby,
Don't worry, baby.

She told me "Baby, when you race today
Just take along my love with you,
And if you knew how much I loved you,
Baby, nothing could go wrong with you."

Oh, what she does to me
When she makes love to me
And she says "Don't worry, baby"
Don't worry, baby,
Don't worry, baby,
Everything will turn out alright.

Don't worry, baby,
Don't worry, baby,
Don't worry, baby.
