It Won't Be Long

I'm sure it won't be long until you find someone nice who loves you.”

- Sebastian Ischer

Dear Friends and Schoolmates, 

   Today's Newsletter theme might apply to many things!

BONUS - - It Won't Be Long - The Beatles


"It Won't Be Long" is the opening track on With the Beatles, the Beatles' second UK album, and was the first original song recorded for it.[1] Although credited to Lennon–McCartney, it was primarily a John Lennon composition, with Paul McCartney assisting with the lyrics and arrangement.[2]

The chorus is a play on the words "be long" and "belong".[3] The song features early Beatles' trademarks such as call-and-response yeah-yeahs and scaling guitar riffs.[4] Typical also of this phase of Beatles' song writing is the melodramatic ending (similar to "She Loves You", which had just been recorded and was about to be released) where the music stops, allowing Lennon a brief solo vocal improvisation before the song finishes on a major seventh chord[3] ("She Loves You" ends on a major sixth). There is an unusual middle eight—for what is, essentially, a rock and roll song—that uses chromatically descending chords.

John Lennon, in his last interview, told Playboy magazine that the song was the beginning of a wider audience for Beatles' music than the youthful throngs that had fervently followed them from their Liverpool clubbing days. "It was only after a critic for the [London] Times said we put 'Aeolian cadences' in 'It Won't Be Long' that the middle classes started listening to us. ... To this day, I have no idea what 'Aeolian cadences' are. They sound like exotic birds."[5] Actually the critic, William Mann, said this about the song "Not a Second Time."[6] Bob Dylan had much the same thing in mind when he wrote that Beatles' chords were "outrageous, just outrageous."[7]


  From Me ('65) of NC - 09/30/16 - "Massive Thunderstorm and Flooding in Fayetteville":

   Perhaps you heard about the torrential rains we had here in Fayetteville on Wednesday. I believe we had more than five inches of rain that day. It just would not stop!

   At the height of the raging winds and storm, my daughter   Adrienne (Harty - Hillsboro HS, IL / American School, IL - of NC) and I were sitting on my bed watching television. Suddenly there was a loud snap and crash on our roof which caused the ceiling to shake, closely followed by another one. Thinking this could not be a good thing, she jumped up and unplugged the electronics in that room plus our office across the hall, and we adjourned to the living room to wait out the storm - which did not end.

   After about an hour I returned to the bedroom and turned on the light. I was greeted by the sound of water falling from the ceiling light/fan fixture onto the bed. Hastily turning off the light, I called to the others.

   My husband      Paul (Harty - Bardolph HS, IL - '61) ran outside to check for damages. He discovered a large limb in the front yard, plus another still atop the house, one of which had knocked an 8" diameter hole in the roof!

   The ceiling, carpet, mattress, and all the bedding were of course sopping wet, so Paul and I will be sleeping in the living room for a while, but Adrienne and I were spared serious injury thanks to the tender mercies of the Lord.

It won't be long yeh, yeh, yeh
It won't be long yeh, yeh, yeh
It won't be long yeh, till I belong to you

Every night when everybody has fun
Here am I sitting all on my own

It won't be long yeh, yeh, yeh
It won't be long yeh, yeh, yeh
It won't be long yeh, till I belong to you

Since you left me, I'm so alone
Now you're coming, you're coming on home
I'll be good like I know I should
You're coming home, you're coming home

Every night the tears come down from my eyes
Every day I've done nothing but cry

It won't be long yeh, yeh, yeh
It won't be long yeh, yeh, yeh
It won't be long yeh, till I belong to you

Since you left me, I'm so alone
Now you're coming, you're coming on home
I'll be good like I know I should
You're coming home, you're coming home

So every day we'll be happy I know
Not I know that you won't leave me no more

It won't be long yeh, yeh, yeh
It won't be long yeh, yeh
It won't be long yeh, till I belong to you, woo
