THE BEATLES SONG NOBODY LIKES BY EDDIE DEEZEN

1365891587-0The Beatles are the most talked about, written about, discussed, analyzed, and dissected group in the history of music. Almost all of the Beatles’ songs are liked by some segment of Beatle fans. The actual “most popular” Beatles song is up for grabs. Various polls on the subject have been conducted, with diverse results.

Some like the love songs, some like the hard rock, some like “John songs,” some prefer the “Paul songs,” some like the later, freakier stuff, and some like the simplicity of the early stuff. But always, in every poll on the subject ever taken, one song stands out, alone and undisputed, as the “least popular” Beatles song of all-time.

TIME FOR ANOTHER BIT OF FAB FOUR NOSTALGIA THAT I HADN’T EVEN SEEN BEFORE

THE BEATLES AT THE LIVERPOOL EMPIRE THEATRE 07.12.1963…

TIME FOR ANOTHER BIT OF FAB FOUR NOSTALGIA THAT I HADN’T EVEN SEEN BEFORE

AND A NOTE ABOUT: THE BEATLES ROCK BONHAMS ENTERTAINMENT MEMORABILIA SALE

 

These days, especially around the holidays, it seems so difficult to get much accomplished with all of the work to be done, shopping, holiday parties, cooking & cleaning, washing, mowing the cats, milking the chickens, and especially, guitar playing going on at all hours of the night into the wee hours of the mornin’!

 

So it’s really looking like time for a little something nostalgic and kind of fun that was actually even new to me to help me take a few moments to catch my breath.

 

It’s a fun little video sent in by the infamous (or should I say famous) Bobby Fury – a man who is – and I quote “thee ‘Beatles Authority’ on this side of The Pond”, who makes the trip twice a year back to the ‘Homeland’ as ‘Fab Findings & Concerns’ beckon his consciousness.  Bobby Fury is also known here in the ‘new world’- America(“America is kind of like Britain with buttons”) as Bob Mytkowicz – see https://www.jackaboutguitars.com/gear-instruments-beatles-mytkowicz)

 

I had a pleasant conversation just yesterday evening with Mr. Fury in which ‘The Furious One’ told me of his latest escapades in the land of the Fab Four.    (You see, I have lived a secret ‘Beatle Life’ vicariously through Mr. Fury and his trips to the Motherland for many years now and hope that someday ‘The Storm’ will be able to make the trip just once before the long lasting condition of ‘worm food’ sets in for good(or in this

ANOTHER BEATLE POST? JUST A QUICK ONE BECAUSE… IT WAS THERE

ANOTHER BEATLE POST?  JUST A QUICK ONE BECAUSE… IT WAS THERE

I know, I know.  There are so many almost completed interviews to run, product reviews waiting, sections of the blog needing more material, sections of the blog waiting to become sections as they sit idly by wanting & needing attention so they can just BE – telling of content to come, which will actually be pretty darn cool – when it finally gets finished and posted,  and even a load of hidden gems just waiting to be published once they are secretly placed within the blog where they will only become discovered by accident WHEW!  These things do take time.  Enough.  But another Beatle post?  Just a quick one because … it was there. Now on to the quick post.

 

 IT’S ALL GUITAR RELATED

What’s with all of The Beatles stuff lately?  Well, I did cut my teeth on this music so it’s pretty engrained in my guitar roots.  Please bear with me and keep sending in the ideas and comments and I’ll try to get them posted.  Thanks!

THE CONTENTS OF JOHN LENNON’S JUKEBOX

THE CONTENTS OF JOHN LENNON’S JUKEBOX

Here’s a very cool video sent in by Gerard Huerta which is one that I hadn’t seen before and have really enjoyed watching it more than once since I received it.  The main reason that I feel that it’s worth sharing here on the blog is the awesome value that the contents of the jukebox have played in music. Talk about some real rock and roll history!

SOME OF THE INFLUENCES BEHIND THE MUSIC THAT REVOLUTIONIZED POPULAR MUSIC

The contents of John Lennon’s Jukebox video is a 48 minute documentary about a  jukebox that was owned by Beatle John Lennon in the 1960’s.  This jukebox was a “portable traveling companion” of Lennon, used in much the same way we would use an iPod today, except for the fact that an electrical outlet was needed to operate the jukebox.  It certainly wasn’t portable compared to today’s standards.  Thank goodness for technology.  I’m sure John Lennon would have loved the iPod.

 

The contents of the jukebox are 40 records, labels written in Lennon’s hand writing, which are a mix of soul, rhythm and blues, and rock and roll, some that few people had ever heard of, and some classics, all of which helped to shape Lennon’s musical education and played a huge part in his songwriting.
