...But hey, if the song never exited, we never would have gotten this classic SNL skit from the same year:

LOL, I'd forgotten about that. But then it came back to me, including the "Beatle kid that looks like a broad." Poor Paul.

Sad to hear that great British comedian and actor Mel Smith died yesterday of a heart attack at the age of 60.

He was simply one of the most important comedians of his generation, finding fame on the highly influential Not the Nine O'Clock News in the late '70s alongside Griff Rhys Jones, Rowan Atkinson and Pamela Stephenson.

A couple of reminders of his work.

This, from Not the Nine O'Clock News, is probably one of my favourite sketches of all time.

And I also found this, from Alas Smith and Jones, which begins with a discussion of the '60s before moving onto a mock-documentary about The Beatles.

RIP Mel. Thanks for all the laughter.

Very strange video of an unidentified sea creature caught on film by an ROV. Nature is very strange. What do you think?

A 1988 Roy Orbison concert has come on the tv (I wasn't paying attention to it after a Johnny Cash documentary had finished) and my word he has one heck of a voice. Never been a fan of his early days stuff, cant stand Oh, Pretty Woman, but seriously what a voice, can see what the Beatles and all the others said about him.

 I hadn't actually heard The Girl Is Mine until a few minutes ago and I must say that out of these 3 songs we are discussing, I like The Girl Is Mine the most. And with ''like'' I mean which I dislike the least.

That's another of the McCartney early-80s duets I dislike intensely. Especially the talking part. It *really* dates the song - one of my friends called that kind of thing a "pornover." And something about a 40something man bantering with a 20something man about fighting over a woman gave me the intense creeps. And I can't think of the song without think of that skeevy drawing MJ did for the liner notes. Why is the woman so tiny, lol?

Randomly, though, I do remember liking the musical shift at the part where they sing, "So come and goooo..." Like a brief key change. The bridge is the best part of the song, I think.

You could always do what I do and imagine they're fighting over Linda. ahdn_paul_01
