The Beatles released music that I still love today.The Beatles: A Hard Day's Night (1964)
I had a huge crush on The Beatles - especially Paul & George - when I was thirteen and even got their fan club magazine, stuffed with black & white photos, for a while. I was so excited when A Hard Day's Night came to our local cinema. A school-friend had the 'novel' of the book and lent it to me before I got the chance to see it. I remember reading the slim paperback on the school hockey pitch in the lunch hour, lying on my stomach, with the sun scorching my back, pausing every so often to imagine what it would feel like snogging Paul McCartney.
I was reminded of all that today when I accidentally twanged the washing rack in our bathroom and it tingled metallically, just like the opening of A Hard Day's Night. It was never my favourite of the songs, but it does have a rough sexy feel to it, the Lennon touch.
Oh, don't remind me!The Beatles released music that I still love today.
It's hard to fathom that pretty much 99% of their canon catalog was released over a half century ago. It still sounds fresh to me today.
Curiously, though it was released in 1973, my magic year, I have never heard this. Lucky escape!
Yep - I remember this one, and as a 1960s moralistic teenager was impressed by it, as a true statement about the human condition, though even at the time I did wonder if the song was a wee bit portentous.
Thanks for posting. I liked Sandie Shaw - her songs, her looks, and the fact that she seemed more honest than others in the biz. I once got her biography out of the local library. It wasn't a very good read, but I remember that she said she she hated Puppet On A String - maybe because she always had to sing it when she was on stage. I 'quite liked' it - but I preferred Long Live Love & Always Something There to Remind Me.
Puppet on a String by the artist Sandie Shaw.
She won the Eurovision song contest in 1967.
I remember she came to the town where I lived then. ( Bare feet of course)
