^'God Only Knows' is fecking amazing, too bad Bowie utterly butchered it when he covered it. Bowie + 'God Only Knows' was a combination that could've held such potential, WHY did it have to be on Tonight...

Listening to it now, thank you all for reminding me of its existence. john-lennon-salute_gif

Hey, I kinda like that one. a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 I mean, of course the original is better, but I don't mind that. Of course, I don't have quite as much of an attachment to Working Class Hero as I do to God Only Knows, and I'm rather fond of Tin Machine...

With Bowie it seems the covers are either very hit (Wild Is The Wind) or very miss (God Only Knows) or just plain WTF (Across The Universe )... Stick to songwriting, David*! a-hard-days-night-paul-7

I have been listening to a Beatles playlist that I am working on. I am considering calling it the Ultimate Beatles playlist. It is kind of a mix of Past Masters and the 1962-1966 and 1967-1970 compilations with a few extra songs thrown in. 

Once I am happy with it I'll post it here.

Yes, please. 

I love the Across The Universe cover!

I have to listen to God Only Knows and Working Class Hero but I'll probably like them, too, I have an issue. i'm hopelessly in love.

It's lunchtime in London and 50 years ago The Beatles were playing on a rooftop.

I am listening to Volume 23 of The Ultimate Live Collection:

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8Lol are you using earbuds or playing it through the speakers? It's not half bad through earbuds but I agree, music + phone speakers = total crap.

Glad I could inspire you to bless your ears with one of the greatest albums ever to grace this universe. paul-mccartney-thumb_gif

And I'm listening to Dark Horse... in my head because there is too much background noise in my house to listen to music rn.

Phone speakers. I only use earbuds when I have to. Yeh, agreed, total crap. When the album is over I'm going to put the record on, but how could I interrupt it?!

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 Stop at the end of side one and put side two of the actual record on. I use 'sides' as a convenient breaking place all the time, even (especially) when I'm not listening to a record.

Funnily enough, I listened to most of Revolver earler (got interrupted right after For No One , alas)... Right now I'm Listening to this on repeat because I have a problem. a-hard-days-night-paul-7

@TheWalrusWasBrian it's from Never Let Me Down which is one of his mid-Eighties slump albums (the other being Tonight, which was even worse), but the 2018 remix really brings out the song. It's not perfect, but it's an improvement in my opinion (though the original had more Peter Frampton on it, so that was pretty cool too).

...Aaaand now I'm listening to It Don't Come Easy on repeat, alternating between Ringo's and George's demo. As a Harrifan, I adore George's singing to death, but of course they're both good.

thanks again @50yearslate john-lennon-salute_gif

Np Beatlebug 😉

I'm listening to Bruno Mars because that's what my teacher is playing. a-hard-days-night-paul-3 It Don't Come Easy would sound really good just about now.
