The Beatles 1994/1996

1994

Theirs been rumors that their be a new Beatles album with new music by all four Beatles, including The Late John Lennon and everyone was waiting for its release. Time went by and no word about its release date. Then a new Beatles album came out, but wasn’t what the hype was about. The Beatles Live At The BBC was a disappointment to what we hoped to have new music from The Beatles.

The Beatles Live At The BBC was great for me. I just went in the CD store and bought it and I wouldn’t care if I had to come back for the case that it came in. I played it until my ears bleed out over and over again. I listened to the lnterview and the songs, until I can recite it note for note on the double CD, and I didn’t care what people think of me. I know I’m crazy, so why stick around and hear their remarks about me.

I live near a college frathouse, and at night they’d be playing Rap Music and drinking. Neighbors would complain, but I don’t. I got something better, each night I would play Grace Jones and Yoko Ono and the frathouse couldn’t hear their music.

Can they complain or call the police (that would be funny), no they have to lower their music and wait for me to do the same, which if their blessed, it be for another hour I want to listen to Weird Al Yankovic, Spike Jones, Latoya Jackson, just to name a few before I stop. It’s hard to find anything that can top me and seeing that I own their house, it wouldn’t be good to try it. However playing The Beatles Live At The BBC over and over and over again without stopping, might be too much for them, or maybe they were quite for a week or two, just to listen to it as well. The neighbors thanked me, but my tenants moved out, and I wonder why !!!

 

1995

Now the album that everyone was waiting for The Beatles Anthology 1 album with a new Beatles song, mainly written by John Lennon. This double CD was all I ever wished to have that year and I weared it down and I’m glad that I still have it and I hope the second one will come out soon !!!

Donna Summer:The Forgotten Disco Queen

For the record, I’m the only one that isn’t black in my department, so I thought I would play Donna Summers first and last album she made, right after I played Sheena Easton and Willie Nelson.

I play the birthday singer of that day first, and since I was behind, I played them both.

For a treat for hearing Sheena Easton and Willie Nelson (both of which had no effect on them), I bought on iTunes Love You Love You Baby and Crayons, thinking they would like to listen to Donna Summers first and last album, but I just waisted my money on them for nothing. They know her hits, but nothing else.

Disco is dead, that I know, and Donna Summers is well, but she shouldn’t be forgotten. Donna Summers, I’ll keep playing your music, until I’m dead and buried and no one can stop me !!!

The Beatles 1992/1994

The song Love Me Do is thirty years old and I have the 12″45 to prove it. On the 12″45 is the first time all three release recordings have been on one package plus an interview with Pete Best and Alan White  discussing the song together. Don’t you wish you were me and have this out of print 12″45 ???

The Beatles 1990/1992

Paul McCartney released Unplugged which has him singing his songs as a Beatle, as his solo career and some songs he grew up listening to.

Massachusetts the years keep going, less and less music is being produced by the former Beatles, which is getting heard to text about anything about their music.

The Four Lads From Liverpool, that changed the world forever, in the 1960’s, has been changed to nothing, in the 1990’s.

What has happened to the music of the 1960’s, it appears that it has disappeared in the 1990’s. I’m not just saying about The Beatles, I’m texting about the style and imagine of the 1960’s. All I hear is trash in today’s music. When love and peace are replaced with cheating and hatered it’s not music at all.

TThe people buying this crap, must have been sniffing glue, because it wasn’t what the 1960’s were all about.

In the 1960’s, you had British Rock, Bubblegum Music, Beach Music, Teen Idols, and more, but in the 1990’s you had only Rap Music  that’s no choice at all. Get with the program and Get Back to the 1960’s before it’s too late !!!
