For those in the UK and havent heard it yet i'd recommend listening to The Bloggers Guide To The Beatles. Its a reverential look at the beatles legacy but with funny jokes (one involving Pepper and Revolver and which many fans would agree with) and lame impressions. Its available to listen to until Thursday.

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8Oh, sorry. Forgot all about it with life going on and Beatles on tv (Love Me Do was on last night).

The cat is back and being a pain. Was found walking around the bottom of the garden on Saturday night. He was put out today for the first time properly and came back easily enough so hopefully a pattern will emerge for the winter (he was gotten for mice catching as i live in the middle of nowhere).

 

Thanks for asking Zig - hope no one was having a sleepness night over it.

The Rolling Stones are going back on the stage for gigs in London and New York. I thought their last tour was the final final never going to tour ever again ever ever ever tour or did i just give up caring?

 

And if you do nothing about something really wrong and illegal along with every one else, just point fingers, jump up and down, and scream "It was them, them over there. They are to blame. How disgraceful that they did nothing! Theyre bad bad people. Get them. Boooooo!!" and hope no one thinks to look at you.

Looking at the UK album charts for the 1960's and it gets insane.

 

The Beatles and The Rolling Stones between them held the number 1 spot for 23 months fom May 5th 1963 to 11 April 1965.

The Beatles had a run of 51 weeks at number 1, 1 week shy of a full year.

The Beatles had the number 1 album, non-consecutive, for 80 weeks in total (AHDN and WTB were 21 weeks each, PPM for 30 and BFS 8 weeks).

For 3 1/2 years (May 5th 1963 to 17th December 1967) only 5 artists got the number 1 album; The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, The Monkees, and The Sound of Music Soundtrack (recorded by various artists admittedly). Not a bad selection of artists.

 

1960's Beatles Albums Weeks at Number 1 - ( + ) indicates non-consecutive  

 

Please Please Me - 30

With The Beatles - 21

A Hard Day's Night - 21

Beatles For Sale - 8 (7 + 1)

Help! - 9

Rubber Soul - 8

Revolver - 7

Sgt. Pepper - 27 (23 + 1 + 2 + 1)

The Beatles (aka The White Album) - 8 (7 + 1)

Abbey Road - 17 (11 + 6)

 

For completion despite it being a May 1970 release

Let It Be - 3 (weeks at number 1)

 

The only UK beatles album not to reach number 1 in the 1960's was A Collection of Beatles' Oldies... But Goldies, a December 1966 compilation that peaked at #6.

 

Its a slow night.
