To all of you saying you've never had music make you cry. You need to hear Paul's Little Willow, it was originally written about Maureen, Ringo's wife, who died from cancer.
  

ASJ you know I've heard that one and the first time I almost cried (or maybe I did... can't remember) but it was that fecking video that pushed me over the edge (though I'm sure the song helped). Those bloody kids with their drawings, curse them a-hard-days-night-paul-10

Since then I've listened to/sang the song many times and that's probably diluted its power somewhat. Here Today I only play/listen to on 8 December though and I often start to choke up when singing it.

Children's choruses I find a bit tear-jerking as well, for some reason. I guess that's why Happy Xmas almost does it for me.

It was the ending that did it for me... I didn't quite cry, but I was very close.

The greatest musical masterpiece since the turn of the century, aka Brainwashed. Looking For My Life ended as I typed this and now I'm on to The Rising Sun, which may or may not be the best song on the album.

Edit: Scratch that, I'm listening to Marwa Blues and there's no way The Rising Sun is better than this.

I finished Brainwashed but wanted to listen to more George and then remembered that Brainwashed is the only George album I have. I reaaaaaally need to change that sometime soon. In the meantime I'm listening to my November 29th playlist. Savoy Truffle is currently playing, the guitar is divine.

I'd recommend something a bit different - Thirty Three and a Third?

Currently going through Sleater-Kinney's discography. I remembered loving Dig Me Out a couple years ago, having recognised the tribute to the Kinks' album Kontroversy on the album cover, and its every bit as good as I remembered. 'One More Hour', 'Little Babies' and 'Buy Her Candy' are my favourites.

A must-listen for any punk fan and/or any feminist music fan. 

Tall, dark-haired QuarryMan likes basketball, music, and naturally, girls. He was a valuable participant on the track team. He is one of Freeport's great contributors to the recording world. As for the immediate future, QuarryMan has no plans, but will take life as it comes.

I've been listening to my Nov. 29 playlist nonstop over the past couple days. I just finished The Rising Sun, and Don't Bother Me started. Hell of a strange transition but somehow I love it a-hard-days-night-george-9

Listening to Savoy Truffle (yet again) and I just noticed a line I'd never really heard properly before: "Coconut fudge really blows down those blues." A really incredibly lyric if you ask me. 

Love one another.

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8Aw thanks! I spoke nothing but the truth.

Currently listening to Never Get Over You. SO GOOD beatlemaniacs_02_gif

For some reason whenever I put my George playlist on shuffle, Brainwashed is the last song. It's very strange.

EDIT: ^Haha never mind, I just started the playlist over again with a fresh shuffle and guess which song was the first to play... a-hard-days-night-george-10

@All Things Must Pass what do you think of Between The Devil And The Deep Blue Sea? It's one of my very favorites heart

Just heard Rinse The Raindrops for the first time. I didn't expect to like it, but I did.

By the way @Beatlebug I just saw someone wearing a Led Zeppelin shirt and I thought of you a-hard-days-night-george-10

Rinse The Raindrops is a good song. If the rest of Driving Rain could pull off what is happening on Rinse The Raindrops it would be a pretty decent album.

^ it's the only song I've heard on the album so far. It's very long, but I like it. The bass has a different sound to it, but it's a good sound.
