Wow you're also left handed! Some of the best guitarists are left hand (e.g. Jimi Hendrix, Paul McCartney etc.)

I went to a zoo before and saw a Yellow Submarine which looks like the one in the movie, no clue why it was in a zoo though.

EDIT: Right now I am at my relative's house and Ebony and Ivory is playing, not Paul's version though =(

At the grocery store today, "Got To Get You Into My Life," starts playing, but not the original... yet this version's oddly more familiar to me. Then I realize that the Earth, Wind & Fire cover is the one I actually grew up with. And a great cover it is!

Ten minutes later, they played "Band On The Run."

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.

I went away for a vacation and passed a city, knowing this is where almost every radio station is at, I decided to check a certain station. This station plays the "rarest and the greatest" every weekend. The song: "With a Little Help" from friends came up. It wasn't the original version though, but it was Ringo Starr singing! I told me dad to jack up the volume. After the song Ringo Starr started talking more about the second, he said it was the one which gave him a 30 year career. He also mentioned about the first line being : "Would you stand up and throw tomatoes at me" (with a different pronunciation I am used to). Sadly, this was post-George's death, he said about writing a song with George, and before it happened the radio station changed the song.

A few songs later and I heard a live Paul singing with his current band: "Hey Jude", surprised he could still hit his high "G's", then came the Na-Na-Na part he asked only the male in the audience to sing, then the female then altogether, the radio station cut the song again lol.

The radio station also played a couple of Beatle songs but no later than 1964.

Lady Madonna?

But I must admit I would not have picked up on that.

I'm actually right handed in every way (Like Paul, who also had trouble with right handed guitars), my left hand is just weaker than it should be in comparison to my right, I think.

 

I got my class ring (finally!) yesterday. I started thinking of the scene in Help! Where Ringo's hand gets stuck to the top of the elevator because of the magnet xD Also the fact that the ring is stuck on his finger (I couldn't get it off for an hour!)

"I'd tell her I love her, but she'd only reject me in the end and I'd be frustrated. That's why I play guitar; it's my active compensatory factor" -Ringo said something like this once, I changed it up a bit.

Into the Sky with Diamonds - yep, it's a definite steal from Lady Madonna IMO. Sounds really obvious to me, but perhaps I'm too Beatle obsessed nowadays.

Yeah, that's obviously a nick from the Lady Madonna outro! I noticed it right away, too, but maybe that was just because I was paying attention closely.

Only just noticed the Beatles reference in 'Morning Glory' by Oasis.

''Walking to the sound of my favorite tune
Tomorrow Never Knows what it doesn't know too soon''.

 

 

 

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.

This is more of a George-ly Moment. While waiting for a TV show to come on, I tuned in to see the last few minutes of the show that was just ending. I don't watch it, but it's a show called "How I Met Your Mother". Anyway, during the last scene of this show the background music was "Ballad of Sir Frankie Crisp (Let It Roll)".

I may have to start watching this show.a-hard-days-night-george-10

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, Let it roll for all its worth.

It's pretty much the most popular show these days :) , and it is very good. Copy of Friends but a great one :) .
