Thank you SG apple01My mom has been in the ICU since Saturday,  so I haven't been able to properly acknowledge his birthday until today a-hard-days-night-george-9. Run Of The Mill always surprises me every time we renew our acquaintance. Of all the songs on ATMP this is the one I couldn't understand until I was much older and now, as the days stand up on end. Love your version and it makes a great B side to your Long Long Long singlea-hard-days-night-george-10. And of course the drawing is perfect for the sleeve!

 

Even though I didn't celebrate, I did think of George for a moment yesterday. I was walking our dog in the park and came upon three girls sitting under a tree. One was strumming Wish You Were Here on her guitar while the other 2 were harmonizing. I stopped to listen and when they finished one came over to pet Charlie. I asked if they were singing that song for George's birthday. She said no, they are practicing for the March For Our Lives protest next month and the song will be dedicated to the kids who were lost. As he sings, it's you that decides...

 I'm sorry to hear that @sigh butterfly! I hope she is doing better? apple01

Oh, that's a cool anecdote! As much as I love George and wish he were here, I must admit their cause is probably slightly more meaningful and I'm sure George would agree ahdn_george_06 Thanks for sharing. john-lennon-salute_gif

Various Revolver -induced drawings

The thing in the upper left corner is my fictitious band of choice, the Space Oddities. They take their name from the David Bowie song, which is their standard set-opener, but, due to the fact that my alter-ego is their guitarist, they also frequently cover Beatles tunes -- Hey Bulldog being a particular favourite.

Once I clicked on the enlarge button, the drawing got stuck and I couldn't click the "Thank" button! I like Paul pestering John to wake up!

Edit: Now I can...

This is great! Paul annoying John made me chuckle, and I also like George and Pattie standing in the corner looking on. That particular part of the pic has a 'Sgt Pepper ' feel about it @Beatlebug apple01paul-mccartney-thumb_gif

I find it funny how you all seemed to interpret the I'm Only Sleeping drawing as Paul pestering/annoying/bothering John, while in my mind he was more gently serenading John to wake up. (Singing 'Wakey wakey, Johhhhn, doooOoOOOooo' is much gentler than 'Get yer arse outta bed, Lennon, we got songs to write!')

And Now For Something Completely Different, here is something you never asked for but are getting anyway:

David Bowie as a Blue Meanie blue-meaniea-hard-days-night-george-4 because he reminds me of the Chief and Max here.
Their exchange is based on a story, which I can't find now, where Bowie was hanging out with Lennon and, when people approached him to ask 'Are you John Lennon ?' he'd say, 'No, but I wish I had his money.' David, being a shameless thief re-appropriator of good ideas a-hard-days-night-george-10 immediately nicked this for his own use. Some time in NYC later, when someone asked him, 'Are you David Bowie?' he said, 'No, but I wish I had his money.'
'You bastard, of course you do,' said the person, who happened to be John Lennon . a-hard-days-night-george-4

Gloves are amazing, gloves are marvellous. Gloves make me feel invincible. I could not do nasty tasks without gloves. heart Hence, this loving parody...

Lyrics under spoiler

I dig gloves
I dig gloves
I dig gloves, in the kitchen
I dig gloves, in the garden
I dig gloves and I want you to know I dig gloves
I glove dig
I glove dig
I glove dig, in the kitchen
I glove dig, in the garden
I dig gloves, and I want you to know I dig gloves
Small glove, big glove, I don’t care, gloves all good gloves to me.
Left glove, right glove, here’s a pair gloves
There’s a rare glove
Come on and get it it’s free
[repeat verse]
Bought glove, whole glove, in any cupboard, gloves always there to see.
Take gloves off gloves, but you should wear gloves, try to share gloves
Come on that’s where they should be
[repeat verse]

Why thank @ewe2, I just used my crappy headphone mic for everything. I have worked out a few tricks to make it sound as good as possible though. apple01

Nevertheless, that was utterly fab!heartapple01 Your vocals, especially in the lower register, sounded very, very similar to George's, I think. You've acheived pretty good sound quality from a headphone mic, that's for sure! Here's to more multibugging! (new phrase, perhaps?)

Finally catching up on your new releases. The production aspects work really well. I know you’ve put a lot of hard work into it, but it sounds effortless! 

I also dig your takes on Pink Floyd; A little bit more of a relaxed feel to your vocals, and the guitar nicely combines the Gilmour template and your own personal playing style. 

Keep em coming apple01

Aww, thank you @sir walter raleigh! a-hard-days-night-george-9 I didn't know I had my own playing style, besides 'Gloriously sloppy/making it up as I go along/trying to be David Gilmour with occasion wannabe Page licks' a-hard-days-night-george-10 but seriously, That Means A Lot to me. heart
