Musica amore!! Golden Summer’s 50th annual anniversary of Judy Craig’s Chiffons’ “One Fine Day” tune

*

I was 10 years old in the golden summer of 1963  —  fetching baseballs on the green diamond of Wainaku’s Ha’aheo Elementary School  — when Judy Craig’s Chiffons burst onto the world stage with their exuberant and electrifying song, One Fine Day.   This remarkable tune ranks among the 500 greatest songs of all time by Rolling Stone Magazine.

Within 5 months half a century ago, Brit maiden Dusty Springfield burst forth across the Atlantic with Ivor Raymonde’s arrangement of Ivor’s & Mike Hawker’s I Only Want To Be With You  — featuring  Ivor’s unmistakable relentless “ticker-ticker” beat and cascading drum rolls, full-on choirs and “Tower of Power” horn section pitched against soaring rock strings.

*

*

Redux the great Susan Boyle, who lifts us out of our ego-defense [fear] and self-importance/arrogance [smallness]

*

http://www.lvrj.com/living/44256022.html

*

Susan Boyle lifts us out of our smallness, cynicism

*

*

Here’s hoping. Hope. Hope is a dangerous thing. It requires uncommon depth and courage to hope. Cynicism is cheaper, easier, and, in this culture, socially rewarding. People count it as sophistication and intelligence.

*

How perfectly ironic that Susan chooses to sing “I Dreamed A Dream” (Michael Ball) from “Les Miserables”:

I had a dream my life would be/ So different from this hell I’m living/ So different now from what it seemed/ Now life has killed/ The dream I dreamed.

*

The first eight bars slap everyone in the face. No one can hide their shock and surprise. Like a miraculous healing,

Susan’s voice relieves the audience of “mean and bitter,” forgives them for it, and leaves them speechless, humbled and grateful, gaping in the presence of True Beauty.

*

It’s Beatlemaniaesque. Meaning, quickly Susan’s gifts aren’t even about Susan any more.

*

Suddenly Susan’s beauty belongs to all of us.

*

People stand in delirious applause — yes, because of Susan’s talent, but even more because it is such a relief to be dragged out from under the smallness and the cynicism that we hipsters normalize and call “human.”

Duende!!     Duende is a difficult-to-define word used in the Spanish arts, including performing arts. From the original meaning (a fairy- or goblin-like creature in Spanish and Latin American mythology), the artistic and especially musical term was derived. “Tener duende” (“having duende”) can be loosely translated as having soul, a heightened state of emotion, expression and authenticity, often connected with flamenco.

Remarkable that one’s experiences span a century or more, if one is lucky enough to live into old age.       My uncle Masaaki 1903-1970 was 50 years older than me.    My grandson Silas is 50 years younger than me.    Uncle Masaaki is a century older than Silas.     My life experiences span a century between Uncle Masaaki and my grandson Silas.    Gatz!    Defy Father Time??

*

Of course, one can stretch even longer life’s time span   –   my grandma [Uncle Masaaki’s & my dad’s mama] Tome was 70 years older than me [bachang/obasan/grandma Tome apparently our music-maker with her samisen/Japanese pick fiddle, so to speak — Tome sung like my dad Toshi 1913-1998 — my Mom Teruko (Hanato maiden name) 1916-1998 never sang  — Dad/me baritone, my baby brother Lloyd & Tome’s youngest child Yushin/Charley fine tenors].     I’m just short of age 60, so my lifeblood youngest progeny is my youngest grandchild, my granddaughter Maya, who is 59 years younger than me.     Not equidistant, but 130 years separate my grandma Tome from my granddaughter Maya.     

*

Actor William Demarest 1892-1983 was 60 years older than me, thus meeting the equidistance measure, with my granddaughter Maya being 60 years younger than me — the total span being 120 years from William Demarest [or my uncle Bill Cappy Chun, also born in Demarest’s time] to my granddaughter Maya.      Here is prolific vaudeville/longtime character actor Demarest  –

William Demarest Picture

William Demarest(1892–1983)


Born in St. Paul, Minnesota, William Demarest was a prolific actor in movies and TV, making more than 140 films. Demarest started his acting career in vaudeville and made his way to Broadway. His most famous role was in My Three Sons, replacing a very sick William Frawley. Demarest was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Actor in a Supporting role in the real-life biography…See full bio »

Of course, this year’s 60th year Diamond Jubilee with majestic Queen Elizabeth had the most amazing aerial displays    –
*
*
*
but let’s also  remember lusty [yes, con todo mi alma y corazon] Victoria‘s Diamond Jubilee in 1897 [my grandparents were hormonal teens bent on pioneering East to the Hawaiian islands of silk & honey][Victoria is current Queen Elizabeth’s great great grandmother][our greatest modern Hawaiian statesperson Pi’ehu Iaukea 1855-1940 pilgrimaged to England for this tremendous occasion — Pi’ehu was preceded in great diplomacy & leadership by Kamehameha III Kauikeaouli 1813-1854]
*
*
*
*
*
*
*
*
*
*
*
*
*
*
Thence, my immigrant grandparents’ odyssey East transcended both Victoria’s & current Queen Elizabeth’s reigns –   my ojisans/obasans [tutus] experienced both divine queens in all their soulful reigns   – 115 years  [Victoria in 1897 & Elizabeth’s 2012 jubilee] spanning 3 centuries [1800s to 2000s]!!!    Wow!!

Life in a crumpled paper sack   [pathos]   –

*

*

http://www.lvrj.com/living/clap-your-hands-for-advocates-who-stand-by-us-in-our-shame-160159705.html

*

*

*

*

Perhaps there is no more sublime work in human relationships than advocacy. From the Latin “vocare,” meaning “to call.”

*

“To call” on one’s inner/core being is the mark of great respect for oneself  [self-respect] and for another living creature [empathy/compassion].   “I’ve got your back,” or, “I will never throw you under the bus.”    I call on my core being –  “vocare.”

*

Meaning, join the rest of us – and that would be all of us – who have unlovely [as well as lovely] chapters in our lives.        Everyone has a life hidden in a crumpled paper sack.      All I need to do is remember the times I hold my own life in a crumpled paper sack.

I was 20 when my daughter was born, 40 when my oldest grandchild/mo’opuna kane was born, 50 when my middle grandson was born [among 5 grandchildren, 3 boys, 2 girls], and nearly 60 when my youngest grandchild/mo’opuna wahine was born.    

*

My parents whom I worship and miss dearly were 40 years older than me.    My mature parents were tutus/grandparents to me in age chronology, & I am blessed by their mature wisdom/magnanimity & composure/equanimity.  

*

My parents died 15 years ago 4 months apart [coincidence  — Mom died of a stroke/Dad died 4 months later from cancer].

*

I felt like a grandchild blessed with the most loving & supportive tutus/grandparents in the world, though when I was a barefoot plantation toddler here in Wainaku [Ha’aheo Elem. School atop Kamehameha the Great’s most beautiful pu’u/hilltop]  — I felt terribly embarassed that my parents were fuddy-duddy oldsters vs. my village kid peers’ parents, and that my mom worked, so that I never came home to a homemaker mom who had cookies laid out for me on the kitchen table in our old plantation mill camp.    

*

When my parents died 15 years ago, I suddenly crossed over to be a tutu/grandparent to my burgeoning mo’opuna/grandkids.     My grandparents 70 years older than me had died by the time I was born.

*

I don’t remember being a child [in a most blessed sense], but undeniably I was blessed/gifted [of the spirits?  Cor./Romans/Ephesians/Peter/etc.] as a grandchild would be, with my dearest parents who were like grandparents to me in wisdom/countenance.    

*

Nor do I remember being a parent [my daughter who is approaching middle age at 40  — laughingly tells me that I was a lousy party animal parent but above all else  — I loved my daughter more than anything/anyone in the whole wide world  — and this is the only thing which counted for my daughter, which is/means everything to her!!].    

*

But now here I am as a grandparent [by default  — ha ha  ha — still a party animal], and wow, time flies, baby! !!

*

And now I am by default/pied piper via hedonism/elan tutu again to 2 dearest “hanai”/emotional attachment — mo’opuna  — Colton age 27 & Jill age 22, grandkids to me in age chronology!   I ask Colton how may I be of service to him/Jill, & Colton shoots back, “Don’t!   Just be you!”    Gatz!   Who am I????   [ha ha    ;-)    ]   

*

Foggy bottom, baby   — is my head — spinning like a top???!!    Ha ha!   Dig my hero George Harrison’s video   –   [40 years from age 20 to 60 for me  — go by in the blink of an eye!!][Maui resident Harrison died of cancer at age 58 after 9/11 & a year after this You Tube video was produced] 

*

Yes, I hope to make it to age 80 & still feel like a passionate teenager in love!!   Ha ha ha!!        Enjoy [the treats below], baby!!!

Age is a   figment of our imagination    — our core being is   ageless!       –

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Philosophy_of_suicide#Liberalism

*

Forms of Existentialist thinking essentially begin with the premise that life is objectively meaningless, and proceed to the question of why one should not just kill oneself  –   they then answer this question by suggesting that the individual has the power to give personal meaning to life and to death by taking one’s own life  [killing oneself].

*

*

*

*

*

*

*

But my pal Puerto Rican Frankie Boreliz born 1946, without even a formal grade school education, presciently and prophetically says that a suicidal person suffering from immense loss [of a loved one] needs encouragement and comfort and a re-building of self-respect and self-confidence.  

*

Frankie wanted to kill himself after his wife continuously committed adultery with other men, but through the help of Frankie’s psychiatrist Dr. Bloomgarden — Frankie was able to restore Frankie’s self-respect.  

*

Frankie’s baby brother Roy did not fare fortunately  — Roy OD’d on painkillers after Roy’s wife left Roy  — and Frankie laments till this day that if only Frankie & others could have carried Roy — literally — and held and comforted Roy  — Roy would be alive and joyful today!!    So sad.   Ohhh so sad  …..

Music is my whole life, and I dedicate these happy links to my Dad Toshi 1913-1998, who was born to sing & play his ubiquitous Martin ‘ukulele, and who sang & played in the mango tree astride my grandparents’ Wainaku mill camp home as a young boy.     Dad’s mom Tome 1881-1954 sang & picked at her samisen Japanese fiddle/string board.   Dad got his music from his mom Tome.  Dad/I are baritones, my baby brother Lloyd & Dad’s youngest sibling Charley are fine tenors.   My Mom  (maiden name Hanato of Kona) never sang.   I think our musical DNA is from my Dad’s side of the family.    My Mom was a good athlete [basketball capt. soph. yr. 1932 Hawai’i Island prep titlist — Mom spawned all the Kona Hanato girl hoopsters you see today, incl. coach Bobbie Hanato Awa, though imperious Awa has no clue about Mom’s hoopster genesis behind Awa].   Actually, Mom’s  father’s [otosan] & mother’s [okasan] legacy abides in their genesis of what is today’s historically significant Kona’s Honalo Buddhist Jodo Daifukuji church http://www.hawaiibookblog.com/articles/japanese-buddhist-temples-in-hawaii-an-illustrated-guide-book-review/ .    Not in Mom’s athletic prowess, nor in the Hanato business acumen [e.g. Mom’s sister Shizue “Mary” Hanato Teshima’s world-renowned restaurant].  Dad was a great athlete, as is my baby brother [State prep baseball all-star].

*

*

*

*

Even into Dad’s final years, Dad would sing among our backyard pals, Dad’s Martin ‘ukulele always in his arms. My daughter Staycie age 40 is half Hawaiian, & my dearest little baby girl Staycie has instilled in her children the spirit of the islands — aloha — welcome/accomodation/tenderness/humbleness/kindness/generosity — her children  Maya age 2/Emily age 6/Silas & Ashley both age 11/Shay age 21. Beautiful aloha. My mo’opuna keiki all.

As a child just after Statehood 54 yrs. ago, I was enthralled by the theme song to CBS local affiliate’s Saturday Island matinee playhouse.   I still have not pinned down its title, but I remember it sounding a little like Glen Miller’s Moonlight Serenade.   Music aficionados “in the know” are long dead & gone [the great George Camarillo/Gloriana Adap/etc.], so I’ll have to sleuth a little more to find out the melodic magic of half a century ago.   Nonetheless, I present to you favorites of mine over the years.   Enjoy    ;-)

Lennon’s surreal flow — Across the Universe  [Lennon 1940-1980 started our British Invasion, transitioning in 1956 from folk skiffle to rock n roll a la Elvis  — contrary to popular opinion, Elvis’ hip gyrations were Elvis’ own, not copied from African American performers  — & Muhammad Ali’s hyperspeed shuffle reduxed our greatest modern dancer Astaire]

the voice as sensuality   –
*
*
*
*
*
*
*
great pitch & inflection, or musical arrangement  –
*
*
*
the greatest one second “run” [curl & glide notes which mimic the most sensual emotions]
*
Florencia Villagra curls & glides her notes in the greatest one second “run” [trail] I’ve heard & seen.   Go to middle of this You tube at 1:38 [time sequence at the bottom of the video]  & catch this marvel at the end of the chorus just as she starts again at the words “oh darling.”    “Oh” absolutely is the most artful & erotic slide in a second of time.   Remarkable projection.

*

*

Unquestionably, rocker Prince is the greatest contempo shin mover [knees down to the toes] dancer I’ve seen, second to alltime indomitable Astaire, & Astaire’s overall body fluidity also is tops.   Michael Jackson is an expert in sleight of hand/misdirection, so to speak, not in the same calibre as Prince or Astaire.   James Brown is the greatest footstepper [simply moving the feet].    Prince also a great guitar picker/player.
