03/07/14 - NNHS Newsletter - Who's Sorry Now?

How does one know if she has forgiven? You tend to feel sorrow
over the circumstance instead of rage, you tend to feel sorry
for the person rather than angry with him.
You tend to have nothing left to say about it all.

- Clarissa Pinkola Estes
(b. 27 Jan 1945)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

     I certainly hope that you're not sorry now, because we have some interesting items for you today!

BONUS #1 - Who's Sorry Now? - Irvin Kaufman, Tenor with Ben Selvin's Orchestra, 1923

BONUS #2 - Who's Sorry Now? - Lisette Verea - film clip from A Night in Casablanca (1946)

BONUS #3 - - Who's Sorry Now? - Connie Francis, 1958



"Who's Sorry Now?" is a popular song with music written by Ted Snyder and lyrics by Bert Kalmar and Harry Ruby. It was published in 1923.[1]

"Who's Sorry Now?" was featured in the Marx Brothers film A Night in Casablanca (1946), directed by Archie Mayo and released by United Artists.

The song has been recorded by a number of artists. It was recorded in 1932 by Billy Banks and His Rhythmakers, featuring Eddie Condon on guitar. The Tiny Hill Orchestra recorded it in 1945 (Mercury Records catalog number 2041). Another one of those was an August 20, 1951 recording by Jerry Gray and his orchestra (Decca Records catalog number 27868[2]). Johnnie Ray recorded his version in 1956 for the Columbia Records label. It reached number 17 in the UK Singles Chart in February 1956.[3]

The song was recorded in 1958 by Connie Francis, and since then the song has become closely identified with her due to the immense popularity of her version which was her breakout hit. Francis' father had pestered her to record "Who's Sorry Now" being adamant that the song would be a rock and roll smash hit. Francis did not share this enthusiasm but when an October 1957 recording session - scheduled to be Francis' last as she had scored no hits - wrapped early the singer used the leftover studio time to record "Who's Sorry Now" as a goodwill gesture to her father.[4] Breaking in January 1958 - mainly on account of Dick Clark's championing of "Who's Sorry Now" on American Bandstand - the track rose to number 4 on the Billboard Hot 100 that spring, with eventual US sales totaling one million units. In the UK, "Who's Sorry Now" was number 1 for six weeks in May and June 1958...[5]

From My Friend, Sherri, of UT - 03/05/14 - "THE BEST potato soup recipe ever! ":

THE BEST potato soup recipe ever!
2 1/2 pounds baby red potatoes, sliced into small bite sized pieces
1/2 regular package uncooked bacon, finely diced
1 medium onion, diced
1/4 bunch celery, diced
8 cups milk
4 cups water
4 chicken bullion cubes (use a cup of the hot potato water to dissolve, then use the cup of hot water in place of one of the above cups of water)
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
3/4 cup salted butter
3/4 cup flour
1/4 bunch freshly chopped parsley
1 cup whipping cream

For garnish:
Shredded cheese
fried bacon bits
chopped green onions

In large pot, boil potatoes in water 10 minutes. Drain and set aside. In sauté pan, cook bacon until crisp. Drain bacon fat and place on paper towel over plate to drain more. Add onion and celery to bacon pan over medium-high heat until celery is tender, about 5 minutes. To the large potato pan, add milk, water, bullion, salt and pepper. Cook over medium-high heat until mixture is very hot, about 8 minutes, stirring often. Do not let mixture boil. In small, heavy saucepan melt butter. Add flour and mix well. Cook over medium-low heat until mixture bubbles, stirring 2 to 3 minutes to make a roux. While constantly stirring soup, add roux slowly until soup is thick and creamy, about 4 minutes. Stir in parsley, reserved potatoes, and cream. Garnish with cheese, bacon bits, onions or all three. Serve hot!
   OOH - YUMMY! Thanks, Sherri!

Who's Sorry Now?

Music by Ted Snyder (15 Aug1881 – 16 July 1965)

Lyrics by Bert Kalmar (10 Feb, 1884 - 18 Sept 1947) and Harry Ruby (27 Jan1895 – 23 Feb 1974), 1923

Recorded by Connie Francis (b. 12 Dec 1938), 1958

Who’s sorry now, who’s sorry now
Whose heart is achin’ for breakin’ each vow
Who’s sad and blue, who’s cryin’ too
Just like I cried over you.

Right to the end, just like a friend
I tried to warn you somehow
You had your way, now you must pay
I’m glad that you’re sorry now.

Right to the end just like a friend
I tried to warn you somehow
You had your way, now you must pay
I’m glad that you’re sorry now.
