Yes! Completely totally awesome! I’m binge watching the series and I have to say it’s probably one of the best shows I’ve ever seen.

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 Interesting little factoid: The lyrics were written by Mike Altman, the 14-year-old son of the original film's director, Robert Altman. Robert would recall in the '80s that he made $70,000 for directing the film, while Mike had - at that time - made over a million dollars for co-writing the song.

My favourite version of the song? Probably the Manic Street Preachers' version from 1992, which has an added poignancy given the disappearance of the band's guitarist and songwriter, Richey Edwards, in 1995.

I've loved 'Venus And Mars '/'Rock Show' for some time now, can't believe I haven't heard 'Venus And Mars - Reprise' till now.

Also 'Fuh You' has been rattling round my head, it's been quite pleasant. Also also --

I've loved this song for a while, but getting the album and learning it/getting it thoroughly stuck in my head yesterday has put me on a decided 'What Is And What Should Never Be' kick...

Bob Dylan - Eternal Circle

I sang the song slowly
As she stood in the shadows
She stepped to the light
As my silver strings spun
She called with her eyes
To the tune I's a-playin'
But the song it was long
And I'd only begun
Through a bullet of light
Her face was reflectin'
The fast fading words
That rolled from my tongue
With a long-distance look
Her eyes was on fire
But the song it was long
And there was more to be sung.

My eyes danced a circle
Across her clear outline
With her head tilted sideways
She called me again
As the tune drifted out
She breathed hard through the echo
But the song it was long
And it was far to the end

I glanced at my guitar
And played it pretendin'
That of all the eyes out there
I could see none
As her thoughts pounded hard
Like the pierce of an arrow
But the song it was long
And it had to get done

As the tune finally folded
I laid down the guitar
Then looked for the girl
Who'd stayed for so long
But her shadow was missin'
For all of my searchin'
So I picked up my guitar
And began the next song

"The pump don't work cause the vandals took the handles!"

-Bob Dylan, Subterranean Homesick Blues

"We could ride and surf together while our love would grow"

-Brian Wilson, Surfer Girl

From Bob's upcoming Bootleg Series Volume 14: More Blood, More Tracks, the first take of If You See Her, Say Hello, which was the first song attempted at the New York sessions for Blood on the Tracks on 16 September 1974:
