Graduation Day (Neptune High School) at the Greatest Auditorium. Jean Bredin photo for Blogfinger.net June, 2018. ©. Re-post 2020.

By Paul Goldfinger,  Editor @Blogfinger.net

Each June, the Township of Neptune honors the Scarlet Flyers with a lovely graduation ceremony in the Great Auditorium.  The students and families at NHS look forward to what has become a multi-generational tradition.

Blogfinger has been present to photograph an event filled with joy. You can search our archive box. (top right) to see some of those images.

Unfortunately, the event had to be cancelled this year because of the virus risks.

Here is Edward Elgar’s magnificent “Pomp and Circumstance.”  At Rutherford High School, where I learned reading, writing and the facts of life, we always went down the aisle in the Rivoli Theater.

I recall my junior year when I was in the pit with fellow bandsmen to play this piece for the graduating seniors. There was a beautiful alto sax solo in our arrangement, and I played it into a microphone with the sound echoing throughout the theater.  Music has such power to cause goosebumps, and sometimes the musicians get them also.

“Well, she was just 17,
You know what I mean,
And the way she looked was way beyond compare.
So how could I dance with another (ooh)
And I saw her standing there.”

Paul McCartney is on his “One on One tour” and he recently performed in Newark at the Prudential Center and then at Madison Square Garden. in NYC.

Suffering Surfer of Ocean Grove attended the 9/11 concert in Newark.  Surfer was excited; he was going with his girlfriend and he was hoping that McCartney would sing “I Saw Her Standing There.”

He even made a song request sign to hold up, but he left it in the car.    The show set-list did not have that song, but McCartney did it as an encore.  Surfer was thrilled.  The show was over 3 hours long, and the audience was tireless.

During the MSG show, McCartney brought Bruce Springsteen and Steve Van Zandt up on stage to perform together. Eileen found the link below.

The audio on those YouTube videos aren’t very good, so a better audio version  (Beatles album)  is also posted below.  You will hear the difference.
