Nice choice Bernie. Did you know that Lennon was fixated with the number nine?

Yes Phil, I'd seen some of that stuff about the number 9 before.

Cheers

Had to pick something connected to the new movie project this week - would have been rude not to!

As it's Bruce Springsteen's 67th birthday today let's have The Boss and The Beatles with a bit of Macca thrown in for good measure...

As it was the 15th anniversary of George's passing on Tuesday, here's a tribute from Paul - a bonus in that we get his version of 'For You Blue' first as well.

Another sad pick, date wise, this week.

With an eye to yesterday being the 36th anniversary of John's passing...

Very apt Bernie. A brilliant track and should be played at full volume, note, the title of the track is never mentioned in the song.

and this is how the song got its title.

When the Beatles returned to London after their first visit to America in early 1964 they were interviewed by David Coleman of BBC Television. The interview included the following exchange:

Interviewer: "Now, Ringo, I hear you were manhandled at the Embassy Ball. Is this right?"
Ringo: "Not really. Someone just cut a bit of my hair, you see."
Interviewer: "Let's have a look. You seem to have got plenty left."
Ringo: (turns head) "Can you see the difference? It's longer, this side."
Interviewer: "What happened exactly?"
Ringo: "I don't know. I was just talking, having an interview (exaggerated voice). Just like I am NOW!"
(John and Paul begin lifting locks of his hair, pretending to cut it)
Ringo: "I was talking away and I looked 'round, and there was about 400 people just smiling. So, you know – what can you say?"
John: "What can you say?"
Ringo: "Tomorrow never knows."
(John laughs)

Hollies' guitarist Tony Hicks is 71 today so here's a coming together of my 2 favourite 60's bands - a Beatles song done by The Hollies; what's not to like?

A little something for the Amy Winehouse fans - must admit that I never really got her, although many did...

As usual I've lost half an hour distracted by other tunes on your link Bern, :roll:
I'm with you on Amy, she's ok but sounded to me like she was trying to be Billie Holliday.

I'm a bit funny like that Bee.
A few acts that are revered as top-top acts but I can either take or leave them or actually dislike; for example...
Take or leave - Dylan, Stones, Who
Dislike - Marley, Nirvana, Foo Fighters
