Since this is my first time to be posting on our very new site, I would like to share some pictures of the Chorale’s previous activities, check out the pictures available on our album and it will tell you stories and brief history about our adventures being a GCIC Chorale member. Im pretty sure you’ll enjoy it.
Just today, we performed in the 2010 Freshmen Orientation in the Campus, and we performed ‘Goodnight Sweetheart, Goodnight’, this a song about a lover who is with his lady, maybe spending romantic time together, but he has to go and leave his lady for a while because it’s very late and her parents might caught them together. So the guy is telling him that he hates to leave her but he has to. A very sweet line that goes, “Goodnight sweetheart well, its time to go, I hate to leave i really must say, so, goodnight sweetheart, goodnight!”
Quoting Wikipedia, “Goodnite Sweetheart, Goodnite” is a popular song that was a hit during the mid 1950s. It was written by Calvin Carter and James “Pookie” Hudson in 1953. It was originally recorded by the rhythm and blues group, The Spaniels, in 1954. The best-selling version of the song was recorded by The McGuire Sisters in 1954. The song became well known again in the late 1970s as the closing song performed by Sha Na Na on their weekly variety show as well as its appearance in American Graffiti and again in the late 1980s after its use in the major hit film Three Men and a Baby. This song is completely different than the 1930s song sung by Rudy Vallee, among others. This song has the sub-title “it’s time to go” with the now famous doo-wop bass line intro. This bass line was however not included in the McGuire Sisters cover version, made to sell to white audiences.”
But the version that we sing is arranged for choir SATB by Robert Sund.
Enjoy the posts!
