Miss You Like Crazy

“Where you used to be, there is a hole in the world, which I find myself constantly
walking around in the daytime, and falling in at night. I miss you like hell.”

- Edna St. Vincent Millay
(22 Feb 1892 - 19 Oct 1950)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
  
OHHH, how I LOVE good ol' crybaby love songs!

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

"Miss You Like Crazy" is a song recorded by Natalie Cole and released in 1989 from her album Good to Be Back. It was a huge hit for Cole, becoming her fifth Top 10 hit on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, where the song peaked at #7. The song also topped both the R&B and adult contemporary charts in 1989, as well as reaching #2 on the UK Singles Chart. The song is a moving ballad where the singer describes how she is feeling lonely and is longing for the one she misses "like crazy" (or, in other words, very much).

   From Bill Hobbs ('66) of Northern VA - 10/07/13 - "A farm kid joins the Marines":

A farm kid joins the Marines

Dear Ma and Pa,

I am well.  Hope you are.  Tell Brother Walt and Brother Elmer the Marine Corps beats working for old man Minch by a mile.  Tell them to join up quick before all of the places are filled. 

I was restless at first because you got to stay in bed till nearly 6 AM, but I am getting so I like to sleep late.  

Tell Walt and Elmer all you do before breakfast is smooth your cot, and shine some things. No hogs to slop, feed to pitch, mash to mix, wood to split, fire to lay. Practically nothing. Men got to shave but it is not so bad, there's warm water.

Breakfast is strong on trimmings like fruit juice, cereal, eggs, bacon, etc., but kind of weak on chops, potatoes, ham, steak, fried eggplant, pie and other regular food, but tell Walt and Elmer you can always sit by the two city boys that live on coffee. Their food plus yours holds you till noon when you get fed again.  

It's no wonder these city boys can't walk much. We go on 'route marches,' which the platoon sergeant says are long walks to harden us. If he thinks so, it's not my place to tell him different. A 'route march' is about as far as to our mailbox at home. Then the city guys get sore feet and we all ride back in trucks. The country is nice but awful flat. The sergeant is like a school teacher. He nags a lot. The Captain is like the school board. Majors and colonels just ride around and frown. They don't bother you none. 

This next will kill Walt and Elmer with laughing. I keep getting medals for shooting. I don't know why. The bulls-eye is near as big as a chipmunk head and don't move, and it ain't shooting at you like the Higgett boys at home. All you got to do is lie there all comfortable and hit it. You don't even load your own cartridges. They come in boxes.

Then we have what they call hand-to-hand combat training. You get to wrestle with them city boys.  I have to be real careful though, they break real easy.  It ain't like fighting with that ole bull at home.  I'm about the best they got in this except for that Tug Jordan from over in Silver Lake. only beat him once. He joined up the same time as me, but I'm only 5'6' and 130 pounds and he's 6'8' and near 300 pounds dry. 

Be sure to tell Walt and Elmer to hurry and join before other fellers get onto this setup and come stampeding in. 

 
Your loving daughter,  
Alice

       Thanks, Billy!

Miss You Like Crazy

Written by
Michael Masser and Gerry Goffin

Recorded by Natalie Cole, 1989
(b. 06 Feb 1950)


Even though it's been so long, my love for you keeps going strong
I remember the things that we used to do, a kiss in the rain
'Til the sun shined through, I'd try to deny it, but I'm still in love with you
I miss you like crazy, I miss you like crazy, ever since you went away
Every hour of every day, I miss you like crazy, I miss you like crazy
No matter what I say or do, there's just no getting over you

I can see the love shining in your eyes, and it comes as such a sweet surprise
If seeing's believing it's worth the wait, so hold me and tell me it's not too late
We're so good together, we're starting forever now, and I miss you like crazy
I miss you like crazy, ever since you went away, every hour of every day
I miss you like crazy, I miss you, baby, a love like ours will never end
Just touch me and we're there again

Musical interlude

Just one night and we'll have that magic feeling like we used to do
Hold on tight and whatever comes our way we're gonna make it through
If seeing's believing it's worth the wait, so hold me and tell me it's not too late
We're so good together, we're starting forever now
And I miss you like crazy, I miss you like crazy
No matter what I say or do there's just no getting over you

And I miss you (baby), I miss you (baby), all the tender love you gave me
When a feeling gets this strong, you know the real thing's come along
And I miss you, I miss you like crazy, baby, only your sweet love
Can save me, I miss you like crazy, a love like ours will never end
Just touch me and we're there again,
Miss you like crazy, I miss you like crazy
