My Foolish Heart

I watched my foolish heart expand
In the lazy glow of benevolence,
O'er the various modes of man's belief.

- Robert Browning
(07 May 1812 - 12 Dec 1889)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

     This is one of        my sister's (Eleanor Buckley Nowitzky - '59 - of NC) favorite songs, so I always like to use it for her birthday.

     Happy Birthday, Lady!  

BONUS #1 - - My Foolish Heart - Margaret Whiting

BONUS #2 - - My Foolish Heart - Al Martino


"My Foolish Heart" is a popular song that was published in 1949.

The music was composed by Victor Young and the lyric was written by Ned Washington. The song was introduced by the singer Martha Mears in the 1949 film of the same name. The song failed to escape critics' general laceration of the film. Time wrote in its review that "nothing offsets the blight of such tear-splashed excesses as the bloop-bleep-bloop of a sentimental ballad on the sound track."[1] Nevertheless, the song was nominated for an Oscar, losing out to "Baby, It's Cold Outside" by Frank Loesser.

The song was also a popular success, with two recordings of the song listed among the top 30 on the Billboard charts in 1950. Gordon Jenkins's recording of "My Foolish Heart", Sandy Evans, vocal, reached the top ten on the charts. However, Billy Eckstine's version became a million seller, spending 19 weeks on the charts and peaking at number six...

From the St. Louis Post-Dispatch - 07/23/14 - "Collinsville's quirky catsup bottle up for sale":

  COLLINSVILLE • When you say Collinsville, you say catsup. As in the World’s Largest Catsup Bottle, a 70-foot container atop a 100-foot water tower that has stood near the southern entrance to the city since 1949.

Now, the quirky landmark on the site of the former Brooks Catsup Co. factory faces an uncertain future as its current owners, Bethel-Eckert Enterprises, have put it on the market.

Owner Larry Eckert planted a for-sale sign in the shadow of the giant bottle two weeks ago. The real selling point of the three-acre site off Illinois Route 159 is a 90,000-square-foot building that served as a warehouse for commissary supplies that Eckert’s company shipped to Midwestern military bases.

Bethel-Eckert once employed 120 people. But the company abandoned the commissary business last year in the face of stiff competition. It now operates as a trucking firm, employing fewer than 20 workers.

“For $500,000, you get the catsup bottle and the warehouse,” Eckert, 62, of O’Fallon, Ill., said on Tuesday. “I’m hoping that whoever buys it loves the bottle and respects its history.”

The original plant opened in 1891 as the Collinsville Canning and Packing Co.....

My Foolish Heart

Music by Victor Young (08 Aug 1900 – 10 Nov 1956)

Words by Ned Washington (15 Aug 15, 1901 – 20 Dec 1976), 1949

The night is like a lovely tune, beware my foolish heart!
How white the ever constant moon, take care, my foolish heart!
There's a line between love and fascination,
That's hard to see on an evening such as this,
For they give the very same sensation.
When you are lost in the passion of a kiss.
Your lips are much too close to mine, beware my foolish heart!
But should our eager lips combine, then let the fire start.
For this time it isn't fascination, or a dream that will fade and fall apart,
It's love this time, it's love, my foolish heart!
