11/14/18 - NNHS Newsletter - Can't Take My Eyes Off You

“But to see her was to love her, love but her, and love her forever.”

Robert Burns, “Ae Fond Kiss”, 1791
(25 January 1759 – 21 July 1796)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

   This song was suggested by my friend, Tammy, whose father sang it at her wedding reception some years back. Thanks, Tammy!

BONUS #1 - Can't Take My Eyes Off You - Frankie Valli and The 4 Seasons

BONUS #2 - Can't Take My Eyes Off You - Andy Williams


From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Can%27t_Take_My_Eyes_Off_You:

"Can't Take My Eyes Off You" is a 1967 single by Frankie Valli. The song was among Valli's biggest hits, reaching #2 on the Billboard Hot 100 and earning a gold record. It was Valli's biggest "solo" hit until he hit #1 in 1975 with "My Eyes Adored You".[1] The song has had a major cultural impact, with hundreds of cover versions, many of which have been on the charts themselves in different countries. The song is a staple of television and film soundtracks, even being featured as part of the plot of some films, such as when the lead characters sing or arrange their own version of the song. The Valli version was also used by NASA as a wake-up song for a mission of the Space Shuttle, on the anniversary of astronaut Christopher Ferguson...

The song was written by Bob Crewe and Bob Gaudio...

From My Friend, Susan, of NC - 11/13/15:

“I have learned that where there is a prayerful heart, a hungering after righteousness, a forsaking of sins, and obedience to the commandments of God, the Lord pours out more and more light until there is finally power to pierce the heavenly veil and to know more than man knows.”

- Spencer W. Kimball
(28 Mar 1895 - 05 Nov 1895)

 From My Niece, Shari, of VA - 10/31/18 - "Statistics (#14 in a series of 18)":
 
  These numbers are based on a single day. The one that may not be clear is the 5000 - an estimate of how many steps the average person takes in a day. I don't know if anyone else will find these of interest, or as much as I do, but one thing that stood out to me is the imbalance in the numbers. Our dependence on technology is clear. It is certainly a blessing in many ways; just hope it does not make life more isolating.

   WOW! Thank you, Shari!

Can't Take My Eyes Off You

Written by Bob Crewe (12 Nov 1930 – 11 Sept 2014) and Bob Gaudio (b. 17 Nov 1942)

Recorded by Frankie Valli (b. 03 May 1934), 1967  


You're just too good to be true.
Can't take my eyes off you.
You'd be like Heaven to touch.
I wanna hold you so much.
At long last love has arrived
And I thank God I'm alive.
You're just too good to be true.
Can't take my eyes off you.

Pardon the way that I stare.
There's nothing else to compare.
The sight of you leaves me weak.
There are no words left to speak,
But if you feel like I feel,
Please let me know that it's real.
You're just too good to be true.
Can't take my eyes off you.

I love you, baby,
And if it's quite alright,
I need you, baby,
To warm a lonely night.
I love you, baby.
Trust in me when I say:
Oh, pretty baby,
Don't bring me down, I pray.
Oh, pretty baby, now that I found you, stay
And let me love you, baby.
Let me love you.

You're just too good to be true.
Can't take my eyes off you.
You'd be like Heaven to touch.
I wanna hold you so much.
At long last love has arrived
And I thank God I'm alive.
You're just too good to be true.
Can't take my eyes off you.

I love you, baby,
And if it's quite alright,
I need you, baby,
To warm a lonely night.
I love you, baby.
Trust in me when I say:
Oh, pretty baby,
Don't bring me down, I pray.
Oh, pretty baby, now that I found you, stay...
