A World Without Love

There is a Law that man should love his neighbor as himself.
In a few hundred years it should be as natural to mankind as breathing
or the upright gait; but if he does not learn it he must perish.”

Alfred Adler
(07 Feb 1870 - 28 May 1937)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

    YAY! A golden oldie from 1962.

BONUS #1 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v_lJPUKTchI - A World Without Love - Peter and Gordon, 1962

BONUS #2 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lt5gN4ubw8E - A World Without Love - Peter and Gordon, 2008


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

"A World Without Love" is a song recorded by the English duo Peter and Gordon and released as their first single in February 1964, reaching number one in the UK Singles Chart in April. The song was written by Paul McCartney[1] and attributed to Lennon/McCartney. The B-side was "If I Were You" written by Peter and Gordon. In June 1964, "A World Without Love" topped the Billboard Hot 100 in the US. It also reached number one on the Cash Box chart in the U.S. for one week. It was included on the duo's debut album in the UK, and in the US on an album of the same name. It is one of two songs written by Lennon/McCartney to reach number one in the US by an artist other than the Beatles.[citation needed] The other is "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds" by Elton John.

"A World Without Love" is one of The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's 500 Songs that Shaped Rock and Roll.

McCartney did not think the song was good enough for The Beatles.[2] Prior to giving the song to Peter and Gordon, he offered it to Billy J. Kramer, who rejected it.[2]

McCartney described John Lennon's reaction to the song: "The funny first line always used to please John. 'Please lock me away –' 'Yes, okay.' End of song."[2] Lennon said of the song that "I think that was resurrected from the past....I think he had that whole song before the Beatles....That has the line 'Please lock me away' that we always used to crack up at."[3]

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

Peter and Gordon were a British Invasion-era performing duo and formed by Peter Asher (b. 22 June 1944) and Gordon Waller (04 June 1945 - 17 July 2009), who rocketed to fame in 1964, with "A World Without Love" and had several subsequent hits in that era.

Peter Asher's sister, actress Jane Asher, dated The Beatles' Paul McCartney, so Peter and Gordon recorded several songs that were solely written by McCartney but credited, as most compositions by either were at the time, to Lennon/McCartney. Those hits included "A World Without Love" (U.S. #1), "Nobody I Know", "I Don't Want To See You Again", and "Woman". "Woman" is credited to "Bernard Webb"; McCartney used this pseudonym to see if he could have a hit song even without his famous name attached to it. The song reached number 14 in the US and number 28 on the British charts. Peter and Gordon also recorded the John Lennon-penned Lennon/McCartney song, "If I Fell."

  Thank you, Joan!
 
 


 From Bill Hobbs ('66) of Northern VA - 09/08/17 - "Tango Mike Mike...a must see...":

This man was a true hero. His story is unbelievable. This it what it means to be a true warrior. I hope there are more like him. He has a truly inspiring story.

Watch where you are going, and remember where you came from.

To all....please watch this. You will get a little more insight into what makes up the warrior. Those of you who are military will understand immediately what this towering human being represents!

I urge everyone to invest a few minutes and watch this video. This guy was awesome. I wish they’d make a movie about him. But as President Ronald Reagan said, so many would not believe it and call it a hoax.

A World Without Love

 Written by Paul McCartney (b. 18 June 1942); attributed to Lennon/McCartney

Recorded by Peter and Gordon, 1964


Please lock me away
And don't allow the day
Here inside, where I hide with my loneliness
I don't care what they say, I won't stay
In a world without love

Birds sing out of tune
And rain clouds hide the moon
I'm OK, here I stay with my loneliness
I don't care what they say, I won't stay
In a world without love

So I wait, and in a while
I will see my true love smile
She may come, I know not when
When she does, I'll lose
So baby until then

Lock me away
And don't allow the day
Here inside, where I hide with my loneliness
I don't care what they say, I won't stay
In a world without love

(Please lock me away)
(And don't allow the day)
(Here inside, where I hide with my loneliness)
I don't care what they say, I won't stay
In a world without love

So I wait, and in a while
I will see my true love smile
She may come, I know not when
When she does, I'll lose
So baby until then

Lock me away
And don't allow the day
Here inside, where I hide with my loneliness
I don't care what they say, I won't stay
In a world without love

I don't care what they say, I won't stay
In a world without love
