Verses omitted from "As Time Goes By"

by asighisjust, September 30, 2012

Recently I learned there are three verses to "As Time Goes By," omitted from the film music to Casablanca, sung by Dooley Wilson, and now accepted as standard. Rather than retype them here, readers can go to Wikipedia articles, (i) "As Time Goes By" and (ii) read also about the composer, Herman Hupfeld, NOT Max Steiner, who, purportedly did not like the song/verses in the first place. The complete lyrics make more sense for me now than previously, as lovely as they were/now are.

I guess I've tried to watch Casablanca several times, mostly in distracted situations. This summary really helped me understand the plot!
