Oh, this is easy. I am on day 11 of my 30 Day Musical Challenge and today’s selection is “a song from your favorite band.”
My all-time favorite band is the Beatles. Because really, who can compare to the Fab Four? Maybe Led Zeppelin, but they’re number two on my list.
Some of my favorite songs by the Beatles were actually written by George Harrison. I adore that man. What a song writer! Did you know that after 1963’s With The Beatles, George Harrison always wrote one or two songs for each Beatles album? Even John Lennon and Paul McCartney recognized what a talented song writer he was.
Frank Sinatra once famously said that “Something” was his favorite Lennon/McCartney song. No one knows if he really thought it was a Lennon/McCartney song, or if that was just a jab at the famous writing duo. Either way, I think it’s pretty cool that he loved the song enough to say this.
Now we all know that the Beatles were around long before MTV and VH1. Bands didn’t do music videos back in the 60’s. Well, most bands may not have, but the Beatles did. Just another reason why they were so awesome. Look what I found. I almost started crying when I saw this – an ACTUAL BEATLES VIDEO. It was a promotional video for Abbey Road.
