“Love is much like a wild rose, beautiful
- Mark Overby
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
Before the holiday themed Newsletters begin on Tuesday, there's still time for another melancholy old blues number.
BONUS #1 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3vuPuKK31XU - More Than You Know - Johnny Mathis - a definitive arrangement with a pretty slide show!
BONUS #2 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8c_svPNY8LY - More Than You Know - Mel Torme with the Marty Paich Orchestra, 1988 - Hmmm - beautiful version, but he seriously reinterpreted the lyrics, changing the entire meaning, by switching a few pronouns here and there.....
BONUS #3 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OBPD887Luf8 - More Than You Know - Jane Monheit with Jonathan Kreisberg on guitar and Joe Martin on bass, 2003
|"More Than You Know" is a
song, with music written by
Vincent Youmans and lyrics by
Billy Rose and
Edward Eliscu. The song was published in 1929.
The song was introduced in the Broadway musical Great Day where it was sung by Mayo Methot. It was also popularized on the stage and radio by Jane Froman. The most popular contemporary recordings were by Helen Morgan (Victor catalog number 22149), and by Libby Holman (Brunswick catalog number 4613).
The song was subsequently included in three musical films: Hit the Deck (1955), sung by Tony Martin; Funny Lady (1975), sung by Barbra Streisand; and The Fabulous Baker Boys (1989) sung by Michelle Pfeiffer (in a memorable introductory scene for her character). It has been recorded by many artists, including Star Trek Next Generation's Brent Spiner on his 1991 album Ol' Yellow Eyes Is Back.

|A panda bear walked into a
restaurant and ordered a meal. After eating he pulled out a gun, shot
the place to the ground, and ran away.
Quickly the bartender ran after him yelling, "HEY YOU CAN'T DO THIS!!!"
The panda turned around and yelled, "Yes, I can. Look me up in the encyclopedia!"
So, the bartender looked up
"Panda" in the encyclopedia, and it read: "Panda: increasingly rare
species of bear that can be found in the eastern part of Asia. It eats
shoots and leaves.”

More Than You Know
Vincent Youmans, 1929
(27 Sept 1898 - 05 Apr 1946)
Lyrics by Billy Rose (06 Sept 1899 – 10 Feb 1966) and Edward Eliscu (02 Apr 1902 – 18 June 1998)
Whether you are here or yonder
Whether you are false or true
Whether you remain or wander
I am growing fonder of you
Even though your friends forsake you
Even though you don't succeed
Wouldn't I be glad to take you
Give you the break you need
More than you know, more than you know
Girl of my heart, I love you so
Lately I find, you're on my mind
More than you know
Whether you're right, whether you're wrong
Girl of my heart, I'll string along
I need you so
Much more than you'll ever know
Loving you the way that I do
There's nothing I can do about it
Loving may be all you can give
But baby I can't live without it
Oh how I'd cry, oh how I'd cry
If you got tired, and said good-bye
More than I'd show
More than you'd ever know
