I Won't Last a Day Without You
“What we do not see, what most of us never suspect
- Napoleon Hill
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
This song's been running through my head again. In fact, it runs through my head a good portion of the time.....
BONUS #1 - I Won't Last a Day Without You - The Carpenters
BONUS #2 - I Won't Last a Day Without You - Diana Ross
BONUS #3 - I Won't Last a Day Without You - Barbra Streisand
BONUS #4 - I Won't Last a Day Without You - Mel Torme and Buddy Rich
|"I Won't Last a Day Without You" is a song composed by
Paul Williams and
Roger Nichols. Williams released his version as a single in
1973, but garnered only minor success.
Maureen McGovern recorded the song and also released it as a single
in 1973 (and included on her album
The Morning After), with results similar to those of Williams.
It became a hit single for
The Carpenters in
1974, reaching number eleven on the
Billboard Hot 100 chart and number one on the
easy listening chart,
becoming their ninth number one on the chart.
In 1972, Richard Carpenter had learned of a new song from his partners, Paul Williams and Roger Nichols (composers of the famous Carpenters singles "We've Only Just Begun" and "Rainy Days and Mondays"), and he put it on their A Song for You album. Shortly after, Diana Ross heard it and put it on her album Touch Me in the Morning the following year. In 1974, Barbra Streisand included the song on her album ButterFly. Mel Torme also sang a version of the song, culminating in holding one of the longest last notes in showbiz history, with a full six and a half four-counts.

From Me ('65) of NC - 11/24/18:
There are those who might consider my thorough labeling of this photograph to be obsessively compulsive and bordering on demented.
I prefer to view it as careful attention to detail and setting the bar for excellence.

|“Absence of gratitude
is the mark of the narrow, uneducated mind. It bespeaks a lack of
knowledge and the ignorance of self-sufficiency. It expresses itself in
ugly egotism and frequently in wanton mischief... Where there is
appreciation, there is courtesy, there is concern for the rights and
property of others. Without it there is arrogance and evil.”
, October 1964

From www.ajokeaday.com - 11/24/17:
|Two elderly, excited Southern
women were sitting together in the front pew of the church listening to
a fiery preacher. When the preacher condemned the sin of stealing, these
two ladies cried out, "Amen, Brother!"
When the preacher condemned the sin of lust, they yelled again, "You preach it, Reverend!"
And when the preacher condemned the sin of lying, they jumped to their feet and hollered, "RIGHT ON! TELL IT LIKE IT IS! AMEN!"
But when the preacher condemned the sin of gossip, the two got very quiet. One turned to the other and said, "He's quit preaching and now he's just meddling."
