It’s Still the Same Old Story… As Time Goes By…

“You must remember this
A kiss is just a kiss, a sigh is just a sigh.
The fundamental things apply
As time goes by……

…It’s still the same old story
A fight for love and glory
A case of do or die.
The world will always welcome lovers
As time goes by.

Oh yes, the world will always welcome lovers
As time goes by”.

Cateva versuri de neuitat din cantecul scris in 1931 de Herman Hupfeld, o melodie care va intra in Istorie pe poarta cea mare, odata cu filmul lui Michael Curtiz, “Casablanca” din 1942. Cine poate sa uite privirile lui Ingrid Bergman, stralucind complice in lumina difuza a reflectoarelor, in momentul in care rosteste fraza pe care o stie pe de rost oricare cinefil autentic: “Play it Once, Sam, for old Times’ Sake….. Play “As Time Goes By”!… Un cantec aflat pe locul 2 in topul celor mai bune 100 de melodii din filme… O compozitie atat de potrivita cu imaginile fabuloase ale lui Steve Hanks!…

    Varianta originala cantata in 1931 de Rudy Vallee “As Time Goes By” si cover-ul lui Frank Sinatra “As Time Goes By”... Daca te descurci cu computerul, incearca sa urmaresti imaginile lui Steve Hanks ascultand cele 2 variante ale cantecului.

Din pacate, astazi s’a incheiat magnifica expozitie a lui Steve Hanks, fara indoiala cel mai bun acuarelist de care am auzit vreodata! Maiestria cu care stie sa se “joace” cu pensulele si culorile de apa nu cred ca va putea fi prea curand egalata!… Lucrarile lui Steve Hanks au fost expuse in “The Most Expensive Girl in the World“, “Sunshine on her Shoulders“, “Always on my Mind“…
