From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/I%27m_a_Fool_to_Want_You:

"I'm a Fool to Want You" is a 1951 song composed by Frank Sinatra, Jack Wolf, and Joel Herron.[1] Frank Sinatra released the song as a Columbia single. The ballad is a pop and jazz standard.

Frank Sinatra first recorded the song with the Ray Charles Singers on March 27, 1951 in an arrangement by Axel Stordahl in New York. It was the second song recorded at the sessions which began with "I Whistle a Happy Tune" and ended with "Love Me". He recorded a second version at the Capitol Tower in Hollywood on May 1, 1957, arranged and conducted by Gordon Jenkins, which was released in 1957 on the album Where Are You?. This album was Sinatra’s first recording for Capitol Records and his first stereo recording. Capitol also released the song as part of an EP, EAP-2-855, EBFI-855.

The song was released as a Columbia Records 10" 78 B side single in 1951 backed with "Mama Will Bark" (with Dagmar) as #39425, Matrix # CO-45185-1. The single reached #14 on the Billboard pop singles chart in a 7 week chart run beginning in June and #27 on Cashbox the same month in a 5 week chart run.[2] "Mama Will Bark" reached #21. The song was re-released in 1954 as an A side Columbia single with "If I Forget You" as the B side. Columbia also released the song as part of an EP, 2559, which also featured "I Should Care", "I Could Write A Book", and "If You Are But A Dream".

The Columbia recording appeared on the 1966 album Frank Sinatra's Greatest Hits: The Early Years, Volume Two. The song also appeared on the 1986 4-disc collection The Voice: Frank Sinatra, the Columbia Years (1943–1952) and the 1993 box-set album The Columbia Years 1943-1952: The Complete Recordings. The song also appeared on Frank Sinatra: The Best of the Columbia Years: 1943-1952 in 1995 and Frank Sinatra Sings His Greatest Hits in 1997 both on Columbia. In 2003, the song was included on the Sony collection The Essential Sinatra: The Columbia Years.

The song was featured on the 1992 Sinatra: Soundtrack to the CBS Mini-Series released on Reprise Records...

  Carol,

This is my friend Virginia Gall, a graduate of NNHS Feb.1948.

Her birthday is October 30,1930. Would you have a yearbook picture you could put with this picture and add her to the birthday list ? I met her through Meals on Wheels . Like me, she cuts her own grass.

   WOWZERS! Thanks, Jamey! I've added Virginia to our Birthday Page, but I do not own either yearbook for 1948, so sadly, I cannot include her senior portrait:

FINALLY:

From www.ajokeaday.com - 09/22/13:

A man walked into a bar and asked for a glass of water. The bartender pulled out a shotgun and fired a shot, barely missing the man's head.

The man got up, said thank you, and left a tip.

Why the tip and thank you?

Because the man had the hiccups.

I'm a Fool to Want You

Composed by Frank Sinatra, Jack Wolf, and Joel Herron, 1951


I'm a fool to want you
I'm a fool to want you
To want a love that can't be true
A love that's there for others too

I'm a fool to hold you
Such a fool to hold you
To seek a kiss not mine alone
To share a kiss that Devil has known

Time and time again I said I'd leave you
Time and time again I went away
But then would come the time when I would need you
And once again these words I had to say

Take me back, I love you
Pity me, I need you
I know it's wrong, it must be wrong
But right or wrong I can't get along

Without you
