With Just A Hint Of Mayhem

Music trivia, useless info, extra added random stuff and the odd rant from me

“For well you know that it’s a fool who plays it cool” October 6, 2012


With all the Beatles activity to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the release of “Love Me DoBBC local radio stations polled 12,000 listeners to find out what their favourite Mop Tops song was. Incidentally I also joined those 50th anniversary celebrations with my post, click here to read it. My top ten would be very different. I also think that wheeling out Macca to maul “Hey Jude” at every opportunity this year (Jubilee, Olympics etc.) has really turned me off the song. But strangely that hasn’t been the impact for those who voted as it was their favourite! Here is the top ten;

Hey Jude
Yesterday
Let It Be
All You Need Is Love
Eleanor Rigby.
Here Comes The Sun
The Long And Winding Road
She Loves You
I Want To Hold Your Hand
Strawberry Fields Forever

My favourite Beatles song of all time is “Don’t Let Me Down”, followed closely by “In My Life”, “Revolution” and “Girl”. None of which made this top ten. I would certainly include “Eleanor Rigby”, “I Want To Hold Your Hand” and “Strawberry Fields Forever” as well. What are your favourite songs from the Fab Four? Here are my top 4 followed by the poll winning “Hey Jude”

 

“If you just put your hand in mine, we’re gonna lay all our troubles behind” February 10, 2012


Do you receive a regular selection of random e mails from various groups that you have subscribed to over the years? I get loads and often I can’t be bothered to look at them. But for some reason I took a  chance and opened one at random. It contained stacks of old pictures. Mostly of different stars together and not necessarily those that had worked together. Here are a few that I really liked and had never seen before. let me know what you think of them.

Bob Marley & the Wailers and the Jackson 5

George Harrison & Bob Marley

Mick Jagger & Jimi Hendrix

Mick Jagger & James Brown

No more words required just listen to some great music by some of those artists while you enjoy the pictures.
