Beatles' album cover saves lives!

Traffic police in India have been saving lives thanks to the  Beatles' iconic Abbey Road album cover. They've been using it to warn  pedestrians about the dangers of jaywalking, and it appears to be working.

Dozens of billboards bearing the famous Abbey Road album cover went up three months ago, with the slogan: "If they can, why can't  you?"

Pretty cool idea- reminds me of this

And this I heard a while back but I don't think anybody posted it (sorry if they did)

 

"Swedish pop stars Abba have surpassed The Beatles to  score Britain's second biggest selling album of all time.

Gold: Greatest Hits by Abba and  the Fab Four's 1967 classic Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band have  both sold 5.1 million copies in the UK, but the 'Dancing Queen' hitmakers have  pulled ahead in the tight race by shifting another 15,000 units of their 1992  collection."

Beware of sadness. It can hit you. It can hurt you. Make you sore and what is more, that is not what you are here for. - George

Check out my fan video for Paul's song "Appreciate" at Vimeo or YouTube.

Parlance, the news thread just isn't the same without you!  heart

Agreed.

Thank you muchly, Egroeg! I was itching to post news bits here during my hiatus, and I think I'll stick with that as my primary contribution to the board (along with the occasional LOL because I can't resist :-> ). The conversation threads are entertaining and informative, but often too addictive for me. So I need to find a balance.

A few things:

* Paul is featured on Bloody Beetroots' 'Out of Sight' - 30 second teaser at the link.

* Geoff Baker is hoping to include Paul as part of a record-breaking ensemble on Buddy Holly's 77th birthday.

* Ringo's publishing a children's book based on Octupus's Garden. (And of course, his ebook of photographs comes out tomorrow.)

* Madame Tussauds is opening a Beatles exhibit in DC. (And Ringo's exhibit in LA starts tomorrow as well.)

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 Thanks, Parlance!  I really appreciate all your news contributions.  I for one, wouldn't be able to keep on top of it, so this is WONDERFUL.

Thank you! :-D

News bits:

* A preview of the Ringo exhibit at the Examiner (with pics) and LA Times.

* Not really news per se, but a blog popped up about The Beatles' in-house astrologer.
