a dancing love letter to the Beatles and their music
Posts Tagged: the Beatles
the most overrated and the most extraordinary album of all time
It stayed in the Top 200 for more than three years
I miss John Lennon
published by the French music magazine ‘Rock et Folk’
The Beatles always needed more than just love, and will always need more than Cirque De Soleil
‘showing my affection for the Beatles’
It’s the Beatles, they are live, what’s not to like?
How can I get through?
‘Oh, we’re the group that was hired to impersonate the Cyrkle’
They performed 32 shows in 26 venues in 24 cities all across the US, in just 33 days
The Fab Four — a nickname he coined
That’s one more week at number one than The Beatles’ overall total.
Paulie’s ode to the black power movement
All three volumes were remastered at Abbey Road Studios
This is ground zero for Beatlemania
It turns out that people do not listen to the same Beatle songs regardless of age.
Lennon takes the peculiarity of Lewis Carroll and adds it to a sinking sense of dread
The auction, hosted by the site Catawiki, is now over and the highest bid reached $3, 306, which is quite a lot for a simple Christmas card
The real losses is the BBC and the Anthologies. I have no idea why they would hold them back.
According to Billboard, most of them ‘if not all, will have access to the band’s catalog of studio albums next week’
As for Adele, several sites report that Trump attended her concert at Radio City Music Hall in New York last Tuesday night. He even cut past a line of concert-goers waiting to get into the venue
Off the 1 video compilation, this is an insane rave up, McCartney on the bridge tears up his vocals to reach the “tight, yeah” and Lennon hows like he has just come out of the “Money” session
The Beatles back on the charts? I might buy the video greatest hits, that I would seriously consider as for 1, well I think I can build my own without too much sweat.
While we don’t know how the world will to react to the Beatles 100 or 300 years from now, it is a fair bet the perception of their entire oeuvre will change from pop to classical. Like the greatest of the greatest classical composers, like Beethoven, Mozart, and Tchaikovsky, and maybe Schubert, they will be performed in recital, analyzed, discussed and studied.
‘He didn’t sail across the Atlantic in an ocean liner or a yellow submarine. He didn’t come in on a third-class ticket looking for a job in Hell’s Kitchen. He didn’t climb up out of steerage with all his potatoes in a single suitcase. But John Lennon was an immigrant all the same.’
People have gone overboard with song interpretations and I will start with the worst example of all, Charles Manson. The infamous rockstar wannabe was convinced that the Beatles’ White Album was as prophetic as the Bible, he would often quote ‘The Beatles and the Bible’ and considered the fab four as the ‘four angels’ as in Revelation 9
I arrived almost two hours before the time — and that’s dedication — but the front of the building was already full of people, mostly ‘old’ people, but it is insane to qualify Beatles’ fans of old, these people have kept the fire in their belly, they are still excited to see one of the two Beatles left on earth, and they still believe that peace and love can change the world… it is so refreshing. Call them naïve, call them childish, I don’t care because I am one of them!
‘I thought that was very distasteful,’ she declared. ‘That’s why it’s important to me to not be a couch potato. I have to keep on doing something because the other side will take over – people who are really not understanding what beautiful things we have in this world and want to destroy it. And I’m not going to let them destroy John or the Beatles.’
We are Paul with new loves, John during break ups, Ringo over lunch with college pals, George when hungover, John in righteous indignation, Paul in loving sublimation, Paul when we are loving our kids, Ringo when we’re playing with them and John when we are reprimanding them.
let me make it simpler. Buy all the UK official releases up to “Let It Be” except for “Magical Mystery Tour”where you need the US version, “Live At the BBC” “Anthology 2” and “Past Masters” I and II and you can pass on the rest
‘I got drunk with them, I saw them with Bob Dylan when they smoke marijuana’, talking about the night the Beatles got stoned after Dylan introduced them to a particularly strong grade of marijuana in their New York hotel, ‘Bob Dylan gave a fat joint to Ringo, and he smoked the whole thing himself, he came back on his knees laughing!’
So do popstars and at the end of their careers, maybe before, you can take a look and see them. You see something they can never reach again. It is possible 1989 is taylor’s… and it is possible I’ll expand on the concept… For now, the obvious.
They want to present evidence that we were duped, that several people have incarnated the Beatles over the years, and they go on and on with height discrepancies using pictures, short Paul here, tall Paul there, eyebrows comparisons, 1963 Paul ‘s high eyebrows versus 1968 Paul’s low eyebrows!
Scientists have found that music stimulates more parts of the brain than any other human function, and we don’t know exactly why, but one thing is sure, it has a tremendous effect on women and girls,… we know that since Elvis Presley and Beatlemania, but was that always the case?
this guy has recorded with about everybody in the music business, from The Rolling Stones to the Who, Bob Dylan, Eric Clapton, Led Zeppelin, the Eagles, The Beatles, the Kinks, the Clash,… basically there is a great chance that the classic song stuck in your head right now, was recorded by Glyn.
If you are a Republican, a Democrat or an Independent you’re gonna love the Beatles most. Plus, if you have a kid under 18 you are gonna love Bruno Mars and if you don’t have a kid under 18, you’re gonna love -ta-dah the Beatles. Decades and decades after they disbanded, they are still the biggest band in the world.
As Nancy crawls on all fours towards George’s guitar (Later, you would hear him say: “Hey why is it sticky?”, she oozes carnal desire, you kisses he neck of the guitar, caresses it, she will take a sip from one of their tea (hope it isn’t Brian), and she is in such a state of lust, she seems to be orgiastic, a sort of internal five way.
According to the LA Times, a very ironic thing happened recently: Los Angeles Councilman Tom LaBonge told the LA Times over the weekend that the pine tree died as the result of an insect infestation… yeah, the beetles killed it! The tree was already 10 feet tall but according to the Times many trees in Griffith Park have been the victims of bark beetles and ladybug beetles
Its VERY difficult to cast something like this- the faces so completely embedded in peoples minds that to have anyone attempt to resemble always come off campy. Of course some shows go the other way and make no effort- which is just as bad.
Seeing the live performances of these guys basically show the extreme contrast in ‘now and then’ stage shows and fan behavior. It’s hard to imagine girls just sat in their seats and screamed seeing the Beatles and rip off their clothes and throw themselves on the stage for Crue
I took me a little while to understand this picture above, what was this about? The surrounding looked strangely familiar, but these head tops give it all… of course! It’s Abbey Road!
Adly Syairi Ramly is an artist and music fan and apparently a lego who, in a surfeit of everything is awesome good vibes, has chosen to make lego figures of his favorite rock bands –which includes, for some obscure reason, the dreaded Foo Fighters
I don’t want to get sick of his shtick- and since its sorta predictable, its easy to get old really quick. So rather than shout out all the nifty things he’s done on the new improved and hipped up Tonight Show, I’ll periodically share something off the beaten path.
The problem is I have seen everyone from the Faux Beatles to Marshall Crenshaw perform terrific versions of Beatles songs and really, these versions, certainly anything anyone but Stevie Wonder or half the Beatles, the “les” if you will, were somewhat on the useless side.
David Letterman spent this week having acts perform Beatles tunes in honor of their US landing anniversary. Unfortunately this is not a tribute it is a horrible nightmare that even the mute button couldn’t cure
With The Beatles was innocence peppered with wiseness. It was the thrill of young life coupled with the insecurites of love, it was the face of the future and in the long haired charming boys from the UK, all the lines of defense, all the bewildered post-WW II spoils of combat disappeared for the children of the greatest generation
From the martial beats to open the album to the agit-prop declaiming “Osama Bin Laden As Crucified Christ” (“You’re gonna hang”), the lead singing changing her gender to a woman hasn’t changed Against Me! that much. A mixed blessing but on the best songs, a definite blessing. The re-recording “Fuckmylife666” sounds great – ALBUM OF THE WEEK – B+
Try yourself if you don’t see your favorite album up there. In any case, enjoy this random selection, it also can also give you a pretty good idea of how I see the world without my contact lenses on.
What is missing is the internal intelligence of the Live AtThe BBC sets. Which it is true that it is all of a year, and a great year, in the Beatles history, still something feels off in the way the songs follow each other.
