“If patience is worth anything, it must endure to the end of time.
And a living faith will last in the midst of the blackest storm.

- Mohandas Gandhi
(02 Oct 1869 - 30 Jan 1948)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

   Ahh - one of my very favorite songs by one of my very favorite singers from one of my very favorite movies,
Till the End of Time (1946).

BONUS #1 - - Till the End of Time - Perry Como, 1945

BONUS #2 - - Till the End of Time - Nelson Eddy - contains the seldom heard opening lines

BONUS #3 - - Till the End of Time - The Lennon Sisters, 1958


"Till the End of Time" is a popular song written by lyricist Buddy Kaye and composer Ted Mossman and published in 1945. The melody is based on Frédéric Chopin's Polonaise in A flat major, Op. 53, the "Polonaise héroique".

A number of recordings of the song were made in 1945. The biggest hit was by Perry Como; another version by Dick Haymes also charted; the Les Brown orchestra, with vocalist Doris Day, and Ginny Simms also made a recording of the song. It featured prominently in the 1946 film of the same name.

The Perry Como recording was recorded on July 3, 1945, and released by RCA Victor Records as catalog number 20-1709. The record first reached the Billboard magazine charts on August 9, 1945, and lasted 17 weeks on the chart, peaking at #1. This was Como's first #1 hit song. [1]

The Dick Haymes recording was recorded on July 2, 1945, and released by Decca Records as catalog number 18699. The record first reached the Billboard magazine charts on September 13, 1945 and lasted 8 weeks on the chart, peaking at #3. [1]

The Les Brown/Doris Day recording was recorded on May 17, 1945, and released by Columbia Records as catalog number 36828. It peaked at #3 on the Billboard magazine pop chart. [1]

The Ginny Simms recording was recorded on July 15, 1945, and released by Columbia Records as catalog number 36849. It did not chart on Billboard.

From My Friend, Angela, of NC - 05/05/13 - "Cookie Dough Fudge":

  Cookie Dough Fudge

Makes an 8"x 8" pan, about 16 servings

Cookie Dough:
1/2 c. unsalted butter, softened
3/4 c. packed light brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 c. all purpose flour
1 (14 oz.) can sweetened condensed milk
1 c. mini chocolate chips

1/2 c. creamy peanut butter
1/3 c. white chocolate chips
1. In a large bowl, mix together butter and light brown sugar until light and fluffy (about 3 minutes). Add vanilla extract and beat until combined.

2. With the mixer on low speed, alternate mixing in flour and sweetened condensed milk and mix until combined. Gently fold in mini chocolate chips with spatula.

3. Line 8x8-inch pan with parchment paper, with it going up over the sides of the pan so you can easily remove the fudge after it is chilled. Press the cookie dough into the pan (the cookie dough may be sticky, so lightly flour your hands).

4. Cover the bars with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 3 hours or overnight until firm.

5. For topping, combine the peanut butter and white chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl and heat until smooth. Spread the mixture over the cookie dough bars. Chill the bars for 1 hour or until topping is firm.
   OOH! Thanks, Angela!

Till the End of Time

Words by Buddy Kaye; Music by Ted Mossman
(melody based on Frédéric Chopin's Polonaise in A flat major, Op. 53, the "Polonaise héroique"), 1945

Recorded by Perry Como
(18 May 1912 - 12 May 2001)

Till the end of time, long as stars are in the blue
Long as there's a Spring of birds to sing I'll go on loving you
Till the end of time, long as roses bloom in May
My love for you will grow deeper with every passing day

Till the wells run dry and each mountain disappears
I'll be there for you to care for you through laughter and through tears
So take my heart in sweet surrender and tenderly say that I'm
The one you love and live for till the end of time

Till the wells run dry and each mountain disappears
I'll be there for you to care for you through laughter and through tears
So take my heart in sweet surrender and tenderly say that I'm
The one you love and live for till the end of time
