So I was listening to the White Album at work today. Went out to the car at lunch to swap out CDs and settled for Sgt Pepper. Having decided to eat in the car, I decided to turn on the radio and they played Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band and With A Little Help From My Friends back to back.

I've posted a couple of times here about the morning show I listen to on one of the local radio stations, and the fact that at least two of DJs decided they hated all of the album NEW just based on hearing the choruses for the title song and "Queenie Eye." Well, today, the entertainment news guy admitted that after seeing Paul last night, he's come around about "Queenie Eye," and it's grown on him, much to the dismay of one of the other DJs. He keeps thinking the song's called "Queenie Pie," though.

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

A local grocery store I frequent has played Beatles songs 3 out of the last 4 times I have been there!  First time was "Please, Please Me".  Second time was "Love Me Do" and yesterday it was "Taxman"!! :)   Very cool!  paul-mccartney

I heard a kind of classical version of Come Together in a shop the other day. It sounded so different it took me a while to realise why I sort of recognised it. It's like I knew the words but I didn't know where from and they didn't seem to match the music! :)

Moving along in our God given ways, safety is sat by the fire/Sanctuary from these feverish smiles, left with a mark on the door.

I want to hang out there for like all their opening hours for 4 days in a row and see what all gets played. Guess I need to whip my passport out.

You might have to make it a point to meet the store manager. Ooooo, wonder if he/she is on the forum, and we just don't know who it is.

I went to a corner shop the other day really late at night for a sandwich after a tennis lesson. I, my mother, sister and about three employees were the only ones there. This guy was taking forever to make my sub so we were wandering around when--all of a sudden...I hear the opening to Paperback Writer on the radio. I got so excited and Mum looked at me rather quizzically because I jumped up and down a bit with a smile and ran over to my sis, nudged her, and pointed upwards (not even sure if the speakers were on the ceiling?). She ignored me because she was on her mobile. Then I proceeded to sing; "and he wants to be a paperback writer...paperback writerrrr!!!" in an otherwise quiet convenience store. The song ended (finally the guy was done with my sub) and I left quietly with my fam and sat back in the car. They got a free performance. I did a splendid job of course. a-hard-days-night-ringo-10 brian-epstein
