Today is the 52nd anniversary of one of the Beatles most polarizing albums. Now, is it a Beatles album? I think so. A lot of it (the whole second side) is instrumental selections that George Martin wrote for the animated film’s soundtrack. I like those, too. Side A, though, has a lot of great tunes, many of which I think is overlooked because of the album’s place. I don’t know, perhaps, I’m making that up, but I don’t think that I am. Here’s my favorite tune from that album and how can you go wrong with Dave Grohl and Jeff Lynne doing a Beatles tune with two of the Fab Four sitting right in front of them, John and George’s kids and all that. So, enjoy!
Until tomorrow, same blog channel…
“Big man (Yeah), walking in the park. Wigwam, frightened of the dark. Some kind of solitude is measured out in you. You think you know me but you haven’t got a clue. You can talk to me. You can talk to me, You can talk to me. If you’re lonely you can talk to me.” – “Hey Bulldog” (Lennon/McCartney)
