top 20 beatles recordings... [30 Jun 2005|09:14am]
So, I was asked my top 10 20 beatles recordings [Download, for those of you who aren't beatles fans], which is ridiculous, but I came to a decision w/o thinking too much, because if i did think about it then I'd never come to a conclusion.. so, here they are:

in no particular orderCollapse )


Also, "I'll follow the sun" and "I'll be back" and "hey jude" get honorable mentions.. eh this was difficult. I didn't have "I'll follow the sun" with me, so I figured it would just be easier to leave it off, even though it would probably have made the top 10. I think I didn't put "hey jude" because I hear it all the time, paul plays it in every concert video I get / concert cd I get.. so that's maybe what happened there, since it was at first my fav. beatles track.

james paul mccartney 's greatest moments [08 Jun 2005|04:01pm]
Say you don’t love him, my salamander.
Why do you need him?
Oh no, don’t answer, oh no.
I’m getting closer,
I’m getting closer to your heart.

Keeping ahead of the rain on the road,
Watching my windscreen wipers.
Radio play me a danceable ode,
Cattle beware of snipers.

When will you see me, my salamander?
Now don’t try to tell me
Oh no, don’t answer, oh no.

L’m getting closer,
I’m getting closer to your heart.

Hitting the chisel and making a joint,
Glueing my fingers together.
Radio play me a song with a point,
Sailor beware of weather.

L’m getting closer, my salamander.
Well when will we be there?
Ah no, don’t answer, oh no.

L’m getting closer,
I’m getting closer to your heart.
I’m getting closer to your heart.
I’m getting closer to your heart

and as well..

Penny lane is in my ears and in my eyes.
There beneath the blue suburban skies
I sit, and meanwhile back

In penny lane there is a fireman with an hourglass
And in his pocket is a portrait of the queen.
He likes to keep his fire engine clean,
It’s a clean machine.

So, I met Pete Best and he was a very shy and timid fellow... just like in interviews. He was really nice though and his band's great. They do the early Beatles stuff. I was very pleased that they did Besame Mucho and Kansas City/Hey! Hey! Hey!. Plus they did One after 909, twist and shout, I saw her standing there, hello little girl, p. s. I love you and other songs which I can't think of right now. But his band's made up of kind of punkish guys from liverpool. The guitar player reminded me a bit of joe strummer and the lead singer screams very nicely. The bass player is a bit older and doesn't play a hofner bass..but actually did sound like paul (not that he was trying to). Another neat thing I noticed was that they used Vox amps (which was what the beatles usually used and paul's first amp was a vox..yeah.) Oh and there's actually two drummers.. both pete and roag best, but they both drum away so there was some pretty awesome drumming going on (he was certainly a betterd drummer than ringo by far, but i've always said that). Anyway, so I got a copy of his book (well he didn't write it, Roag Best did), but it's got all this rare stuff i've not seen from his collection of stuff. It's a nice hard cover book and is like 200 pages long and it wasn't expensive. But he also signed a lovely photograph I brought with me of him and Paul. When I gave it to him I was like "You look very handsome in this photo sir.." him: (turns a bit red) "Oh...thank you".. me: "This is you at the Cavern club.. but well you probably know that.." and he's like "Yeah, but i'm suprised you'd know that!"

So, that was cool.. but my friend got the drumsticks he played with, and he signed them (gah! she always has to one up me.)

Anyway, here's the picture he signed:

the man who put the beat in beatleCollapse )
