Love Makes the World Go 'Round
“Passion makes the world go round.
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
Today's theme is brought to you by my Magic Shower, which has been annoying
me with this song all this week. It's not even one of my

|"Love Makes the World Go 'Round" is a
song written by
Bob Merrill for the
Carnival!, which debuted on
Broadway in 1961.
Carnival!'s equivalent of "Hi-Lili, Hi-Lo", the signature song from the musical's parent film Lili, "Love Makes the World Go 'Round" is played on a concertina at the play's opening and is later sung by the characters Lili and Paul Berthalet, with the latter being concealed while his puppets apparently sing.
In scoring Carnival!, Bob Merrill had hoped to utilize French folk music as his touchstone, eschewing the conventional Tin Pan Alley style of song predominant in Broadway shows. During the development phase of Carnival!, Gower Champion and Michael Stewart – respectively set to direct the musical and write its book – would visit Merrill's apartment every morning and leave each afternoon disappointed by the lack of any evident hit song in the proposed score Merrill had played for them. When seeing out Champion and Stewart one afternoon, Merrill became irate at his visitors' attitude, telling them: "While you're waiting for this f**king elevator I can write the song I know you want" and improvising a tune reminiscent of Rodgers and Hammerstein's "Carousel Waltz". Whether or not Merrill was making a serious song pitch, Champion and Stewart's response to Merrill's impromptu composition was so positive as to demand its development into a full show tune for Carnival!, the result being "Love Makes the World Go 'Round".
Jane Morgan released a single of "Love Makes the World Go 'Round" which served as the title cut of her August 1961 album release on the Kapp label. The Everly Brothers also recorded the song for their album Instant Party, its title appearing there as "Carnival". "Love Makes the World Go 'Round" has also been recorded by Ann-Margret and Wayne Newton.
Al Hirt released a version on his 1965 album, The Best of Al Hirt.

THIS DAY IN 1963:
From Malcolm Davis ('65) of VA - 05/07/13, 6:45 AM - "Present progress of the Jamey (Douglas) Bacon ('66 - of VA) mission project":
|A team from
Parkview Baptist Church has
committed to assist with the project.
Also a NNHS alumni (anonymously) contacted me and introduced me to a contractor named Ken Thompson from "Four Seasons Home Repair" who has agreed to prepare the site and supervise the brick laying for free. We also obtained an excavator (a machine) for free from Kevin Coats who has a local business "Grand Rental Station". Kevin is an old Boys' Club member and I suspect he may has graduated from NNHS but I am not sure. Jamey and I are now waiting for a meeting to get approval of the project before doing the work. The contributions that we received are sufficient and greatly appreciated. Further progress reports will be forthcoming. The scope of this project has grown with TYPHOON strength and proportions.
That's extremely gratifying to hear! Thank you so much for all your kindness, thoughtfulness, and diligence in spearheading this project, Malcolm!
From Joe Madagan ('57) of FL - 05/07/13 - "The Way Old Friends Do.":
Thank you for repeating this theme, using the music from ABBA. One of my favorites. Glad it has become a standard feature in your Newsletter.
Bobby Fowler ('56) of FL had one of the finest reconditioned truck ever, and he was kind enough to give me a ride to school when he drove that fine truck to NNHS. Not only did he save me bus fare, but gave the the joy of riding in that finely tuned and beautifully painted blue truck. He was First Tenor in the Senior Chorus, and could handle a solo or sing with a quartet.
Joe Madagan ('57) of FL
Thanks so much, Adonis! I was hoping you'd spot that and recognize that I was reissuing that theme just for you! I think I can count on one hand the number of new themes I've introduced since the new year began; some of the old ones of years past - almost 13, now - were just too good not to revisit, and that song is especially moving! It seems particularly appropriate when recalling our old and dear friends - such as Bobby!

From My Friend, Melanie, of TX - 05/07/13 - "NEVER BUY JEWELRY CLEANER AGAIN!":
3. Pour hot water into bowl. Place salt, soda, and dishwashing liquid into bowl. Place jewelry on top of foil and let it sit for 5 to 10 minutes. Rinse jewelry in cool water and dry jewelry completely with soft cloth. Discard solution after use and make a new batch next time.
4. According to www.wire-sculpture.com, "This works well for gold-filled, brass, German (nickel) silver, and sterling silver. I have even cleaned jewelry with freshwater pearls, shell cameos and mother of pearl with no problem."
|WOWZERS! Thanks, Melanie!|

From My Friend, Melanie, of TX - 05/07/13 - "7-Up Biscuits":
|These are sooo good
you may want to double the recipe!!
Melt butter in a 9 inch square pan. just stick your pan and butter in the oven for a few minutes. Just a few though, the butter will burn, so watch it.
Place cut biscuits on top of melted butter and bake for 12-15 minutes or until brown.

From www.ajokeaday.com - 05/07/13:
For all of you with teenagers or who had teenagers, you may want to know why they really have a lot in common with cats:
1. Neither teenagers nor cats turn their heads when you call them by name.
2. No matter what you do for them, it is not enough. Indeed, all humane efforts are barely adequate to compensate for the privilege of waiting on them hand and foot.
3. You rarely see a cat walking outside of the house with an adult human being, and it can be safely said that no teenager in his or her right mind wants to be seen in public with his or her parents.
4. Cats and teenagers can lie on the living-room sofa for hours on end without moving, barely breathing.
5. Cats have nine lives. Teenagers carry on as if they did.

Love Makes the World Go 'RoundWords and Music by Bob Merrill (17 May 1921 – 17 Feb 1998) for Carnival!, 1961
Love makes the world go 'round.
Love makes the world go 'round.
Somebody soon will love you,
If no one loves you now.
High in some silent sky
Love sings a silver song
Making the earth whirl softly
Love makes the world go 'round.
