Simpler days when a bee flying around in stereo or Hendrix's guitar floating from one speaker to another were high technology...

Speaking of floating, never liked the airplane noises in back In USSR. I play the mono track, with the rest of the album in stereo.

Paul has a live version, i figurrd great, no zooming airplanes. No, he put them in.

I love the Beatles. And due to the wonders of Spotify I decided to listen to every single track on every single album (UK releases) they ever made. So I have been doing that in my car and occasionally around the house.

Several things struck me listening in such a concentrated way:

1. They really were superb song-smiths.
2. The production of their albums was second to none.
3, Paul McCartney is probably the best pop bass player of all time.
4. Ringo Starr is actually one of the best pop drummers of all time.
5 I can't think of another band which (as they did later on in their carer) that was self-referential - i.e. songs referring to other songs and to other band members (The Walrus was Paul for example).

Wonderful even today...and that is without thinking of the cultural legacy.

Well they were of their time and Liverpool in the late 50s was not exactly a liberal place in terms of social attitudes. Plus Lennon seems to have had a particularly nasty streak.

In fact listening to so many of their songs at once I think his (the ones he did most of the work on) are weaker than McCartney's. They are more cutting and bring an edge which would have been lost without him - his lyrics are more creative for sure, but he is the weaker musician by far.

Slept badly last night for some reason. As I lay awake in the dark these bloody songs kept playing in my head over and over. I think I may have got a bit over involved with this little musical project.

You must then get up and play Yummy Yummy Yummy on whatever device you have. It will erase all other songs for 6 hours.
