I listen to the latest Bob Dylan,s Album , Tempest , this song : Roll On, John

Doctor, doctor tell me the time of day
Another bottle's empty, another penny

He turned around and he slowly walked away
They shot him in the back
and down he went

Shine your light
Movin' on
You burned so

Roll on, John

From the Liverpool docks to the red-light Hamburg

Down in the quarry with The Quarrymen
Playing to the big crowds,
playing to the cheap seats

Another day in the life on your way to your
journey's end

Shine your light
Movin' on
You burned so

Roll on, John

Sailin' through the trade winds bound for the

Rags on your back just like any other slave
They tied your hands and
they clamped your mouth

Wasn't no way out of that deep dark cave

your light

Movin' on
You burned so bright
Roll on, John

I heard
the news today, oh boy

They hauled your ship up on the shore
Now the city
gone dark, there is no more joy

They tore the heart right out and cut him to
the core

Shine your light
Movin' on
You burned so bright
on, John

Put on your bags and get 'em packed
Leave right now, you
won't be far from wrong

The sooner you go the quicker you'll be

You've been cooped up on an island far too long

Shine your

Movin' on
You burned so bright
Roll on, John

Slow down
you're moving way too fast

Come together right now over me
Your bones are
weary, you're about to breathe your last

Lord, you know how hard that it can

Shine your light
Movin' on
You burned so bright
Roll on,

Roll on, John, roll through the rain and snow
Take the right-hand
road and go where the buffalo roam

They'll trap you in an ambush 'fore you

Too late now to sail back home

Shine your light

You burned so bright
Roll on, John

Tyger, tyger burning

I pray the Lord my soul to keep
In the forests of the

Cover him over and let him sleep

Shine your light

You burned so bright
Roll on, John


...They've forgotten all about God He's the only reason we exist...

I don't know if this has been mentioned before but Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds was mentioned in Dream Theater's song Octavarium.

My favourite song is 'Stairway to Heaven' by Motley Crue on their 1876 album 'Yellow Submarine'.

In "Boys 'Round Here", Blake Shelton sings:

"Red red red red red red red red redneck

Well the boys 'round here don't listen to The Beatles
Run ole Bocephus through a jukebox needle"

For those of you who don't listen to American country music, Bocephus is Hank Williams, Jr.

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.

One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!" -- Paul McCartney

I didn't see a thread for novelty songs (should I start one? Yes, I know that means "We Love You Beatles" would rear its hideous head), so I'll post here. Posted at Fab Four FAQ 2.0. Photo referenced below is at that link.

Wow, that was quick:


On this day in 1964, "Ringo, I Love You" was issued as a single.

(The artist seen here at right, alongside her producer at left and Darlene Love, center.)

Richard Buskin and I recently discussed this record on our podcast [ ]. This was Cher's debut as a lead vocalist, though it was not a "Cher" record per se. Phil Spector, producer of the single, felt that Cherilyn Sarkesian was too ethnic, so it went out under an All-American-sounding handle: Bonnie Jo Mason.

Though Beatle-related novelties were not hard to find at the time, this one drew few radio spins (apart from Buffalo, New York, for some reason), leading some to speculate that such an atypical female voice pledging devotion to the Beatles' drummer masked something unsavory going on, causing deejays to shun it.

Spector was credited as a co-writer, along with his protege, one Vini Poncia - who one day, would become Ringo's longest running songwriting collaborator.


Edit: This post was moved from another thread. Emily's post below refers to the one above.


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 usually listen to WSM  (home of The Gand Old Opry) in the morning getting ready for work.  Anyway, I caught the last part of this song this morning.

Bigger Than The Beatles - by Joe Diffe


Then found a parody of that song... (She's Got A Butt) Bigger Than The Beatles - by Cledus T. Judd
