 Yeah their cover isn't very good but neither were they. It was before they went all Glam, i think it was late 60's but could be wrong.

We're listening to Sirius' Deep Tracks channel at work, and they played "Cut Me Some Slack." My main Beatle buddy coworker came out of his office, incredulous, "Did I hear that correctly, they said that was Paul McCartney?! That was pretty deep and dark." I was a little surprised at *his* surprise; I certainly don't think the song's deeper and darker than "Helter Skelter."

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

The other day I was walking through the employee entrance with one of my co workers who was just beginning his work shift. He muttered "Back to work Eight Days A Week". I almost busted out singing "Eight Days A Week", but I stopped myself.

Oh well, I don't know anything about Slade. I only know about 2 normal songs which I forgot the name of and then of course that Christmas song.

Just got a Genesis Greatest Hits cd and one of the tracks is called That's All (which i knew from it being on the first first 'Now That's What I Call Music' LP). Was looking at its entry over at wiki and one sentence reads

"The song was intended as an attempt to write a simple pop song with a melody in the style of The Beatles. Phil Collins acknowledged in subsequent interviews that the song also features one of his attempts at a "Ringo Starr drum part".

It still amazes me how through the course of modern music (ie from the 60's onwards) The Beatles and their influence on it keeps on reappearing.

but he wasn't known back then, I find it rather serendipitous.
