Dont pass me by

(You were in a car crash, and you lost your hair)

Buy "Riding so high: The Beatles and drugs" right here: https://www.amazon.ca/Riding-S.....038;sr=8-1

I've read it, and it's great!  

And don't forget to vote blue jay way (and rocky raccoon) higher up on the 2021 Beatles song poll. If you don't wanna vote it, that's fine.

Per Joe's article, the song Birthday was influenced by this movie.

1427964650avatar.jpg

Based around a standard blues structure, ‘Birthday ’ contains one of McCartney’s finest vocal performances on the White Album. Perhaps the soundtrack to The Girl Can’t Help It – which featured Little Richard, Gene Vincent, Eddie Cochran, Fats Domino and others – played a part.

What happened was The Girl Can’t Help It was on television. That’s an old rock film with Little Richard and Fats Domino and Eddie Cochran and a few others. Gene Vincent. And we wanted to see it, so we started recording at five o’clock. And we said, ‘We’ll do something, just do a backing track. We’ll make up a backing track.’
 

So we kept it very simple, 12 bar blues kind of thing. And we stuck in a few bits here and there in it, with no idea what the song was or what was gonna go on top of it. We just said, ‘OK, 12 bars in A, and we’ll change to D, and I’m gonna do a few beats in C.’ And we really just did it like that. Random thing. We didn’t have time for anything else, and so we just recorded this backing.

And we came back here to my house and watched The Girl Can’t Help It. Then we went back to the studio again and made up some words to go with it all. So this song was just made up in an evening.

Paul McCartney
Radio Luxembourg, 20 November 1968

Thanks AG! I'm having a sense of deja vu, so my apologies if we have been here before (we've played so many games). If elephant memory serves, I try not to do replays. Here is our next presentation a-hard-days-night-john-6

That be me song @Richard! I have made a pact with some other forum members to advocate for Blue Jay Way , in order to take its rightful place in the Top 100 in the 2021 Canon Poll. Note-in the last 2 forum polls it has ranked a disappointing 158 & 189 (out of 220).

I agree that Blue Jay Way deserves a higher placing, @sigh butterfly. Distinctive chords too so I've included it in the current Baker's Dozen list.

Woot woot Rich! If I'm interpreting your Baker's Dozen subject choice correctly, you're a musician. Maybe we can recruit you to participate in the FF Battle of the Bands this summer beatlemaniacs_02_gif. I'm hoping to get 10 participants and so far we're about halfway there.

For your image, my first thought was "relax and float down stream" from Tomorrow Never Knows .a-hard-days-night-john-7

I can play guitar to some extent but I'm really out of practice, sb – I'll get back into it again someday.

No:

I’m not sure if he really said it, but that is often attributed to Winston Churchill. His nickname was Bulldog. When I say hello to him, I say...

Hey Bulldog

This guess may be influenced by his birthday, but I'm feeling Think For Yourself on this one. a-hard-days-night-george-10
