Well its nice to know im an inspiration.

I was having a go at the commercial disco that is forever churned out by god-awful cheese-bucket-fest radio stations normally at the weekend.

Every time I see a 70's music compilation I cringe and you wont ever catch me listening to 70's night on the radio even tho there were some really strong artists out there (Elton, Queen, Rod Stewart, Solo Beatles). I truly hate the Glam, Punk and Disco genres because of the same shit the radio stations shove on over and over. Having said that the most boring record ive ever heard is Barry White's Just The Way You Are, nothing happens until an incredibly dreary sax(?) solo comes on before returning to Barry now sounding like he's managed to bore himself out of his brains, pus the song never bloody ends. Never in my life have I needed a Beatles fix more.

And I know there are 1000's of exceptions to what ive said and its a completely general overview that can be pulled apart in seconds. The radio killed it for me.

Oh, Paul. He has two stikes now. This, and Give My Regards to Broad Street. Must have skimed over George, but he was in the Rutles so he gets a pass. a-hard-days-night-george-8

:lol: The Rutles' "Al You Need is Cash" is truly excellent!

That it truly is! :D But maybe George gets a demerit for "Shanghai Surprise", if it's as bad as its reputation.

No explanation needed, MrM, but yours is perfectly understandable nonetheless! (And I never cared for Barry White either.)

Would Shanghai Surprise be a film where nobody involved in its existence wants to see it released, ive only ever heard how awful a movie it is and how much a pain Madonna and Sean Penn were? I love how they had to call on George to appease the hatred from the media towards the leading cast with a press conference. The music is good tho, Shanghai Surprise I enjoy a lot as well as The Hottest Gong in Town and Breath Away From Heaven and Someplace Else which ended up on Cloud Nine both came from the film.

No idea how bad the film truly is or if it's available on video anywhere, but I've found a complete recap at one of those bad-movie sites for the curious:

And hey look: the recapper is Dr. Winston O'Boogie! (One of the bigwigs at that site.)

Thanks for posting that link von. Was enjoying the read until I got 3 paragraphs into the film description which bored me and I realised there was another 9 pages (not the article was boring it was the film that sounded incredibly dull). Life is too short – where is that paint drying?

Yeah, I only ended up reading half of it myself – not one of the better recaps I'd read at that same site.

It's pretty literal, no slang or anything:

"I'm embarrassed for you."

I don't know if yall are a fan of the show "Mystery Science Theater 3000" 

That would be a perfect show to have that movie on. if MST3K would celebrate "beatlemanis" this would be the cheesy film they would be forced to riff.

Can't think of anywhere else to put this – Meet the Beatles has an entry on "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band on the Road," which played for six weeks on Broadway.

Hard to believe John and Paul sanctioned this (according to the blog, George and Ringo did not).

Dig those gold spandex shorts.
