The Beatles White Album 50th Anniversary

So the Beatles White Album has been remixed… suppose you have to do something for the 50th aniversary. Not my favourite album in the world, anything after Revolver pails into comparison and while I can agree that it’s progression in their music and songwriting, it’s just not as exciting to listen to.

The White Album just appears to be a lot of knock off songs from India thrown together into a double album although it does have some highlights like Dear Prudence, While My Guitar Gently Weeps and I’m So Tired.

So it’s very meh to me, but there is a new video…. oooooo. Yeah exactly. So here’s a remix of Glass Onion, sounding a little less like filler music to my ears, but hey, we all have our favourites.

David Bowie, 1947-2016

Days after the passing of Lemmy, 2016 continues to be a shit year with the passing of David Bowie after an 18 month battle with cancer.

Absolutely gutted, and it takes his passing and an eight hour marathon of his music on my iTunes today to realise just how brilliant he was over five decades.

But just like it was listening to the lyrics of Freddie Mercury on the Innuendo album after he died, listening to his last single Lazarus it makes me wonder how the hell we didn’t get the message before.

He’ll be sadly missed, and like Lemmy, we’ll never see his like again.

I’ve been listening to this track too much today, but it’s an amazing performance from the Old Grey Whistle Test.

R.I.P Ziggy and Major Tom

This is dedicated to all the fucknuts I’ve let go.

Down, down, you bring me down
I hear you knocking down my door
And I can’t sleep at night.
Your face it has no place
No room for you inside my house
I need to be alone.

Don’t waste your words I don’t need anything from you,
I don’t care where you’ve been or what you plan to do.

Turn, turn, I wish you’d learn
There’s a time and place for everything
I’ve got to get it through.
Cut loose ’cause you’re no use
I couldn’t stand another
Second in your company.

Don’t waste your words I don’t need anything from you,
I don’t care where you’ve been or what you plan to do.

Stone me why can’t you see
You’re a no one nowhere washed up baby
Who’d look better dead.
Your tongue is far too long
I don’t like the way it sucks and
Slurs upon my every word.

Don’t waste your words I don’t need anything from you,
I don’t care where you’ve been or what you plan to do.

I am the resurrection and I am the life,
I couldn’t ever bring myself to hate you as I’d like.

I am the resurrection and I am the life,
I couldn’t ever bring myself to hate you as I’d like.

Down Came The Rain by Mitch Murray

I can remember hearing this on BBC Radio Two’s Pick of the Pops a long time ago, and spending hours laughing at it.

A Google search of who sang it never turned up anything. It wasn’t even on Pirate Bay or eMule (yes it was that long ago), but eventually I found it thanks to YouTube.

It starts of sounding like a typically 1960’s schmaltzy god awful love song. Then it turns in to bat shit crazy pub singing at 38 seconds.

I love this song for the crazy chorus, and it’s just come on again on my mp3 playlist in work, so thought I’d just write a few paragraphs to share my love of this forgotten classic.

All things dull and ugly
All creatures short and squat
All things rude and nasty
The Lord God made the lot

Each little snake that poisons
Each little wasp that stings
He made their brutish venom
He made their horrid wings

All things sick and cancerous
All evil great and small
All things foul and dangerous
The Lord God made them all

Each nasty little hornet
Each beastly little squid
Who made the spiky urchin?
Who made the sharks? He did

All things scabbed and ulcerous
All pox both great and small
Putrid, foul and gangrenous
The Lord God made them all, Amen

Just remember that you’re standing on a planet that’s evolvingAnd revolvin

Just remember that you’re standing on a planet that’s evolving
And revolving at nine hundred miles an hour,
That’s orbiting at nineteen miles a second, so it’s reckoned,
A sun that is the source of all our power.

The sun and you and me and all the stars that we can see
Are moving at a million miles a day
In an outer spiral arm, at forty thousand miles an hour,
Of the galaxy we call the ‘Milky Way’.

Our galaxy itself contains a hundred billion stars.
It’s a hundred thousand light years side to side.
It bulges in the middle, sixteen thousand light years thick,
But out by us, it’s just three thousand light years wide.
We’re thirty thousand light years from galactic central point.

We go ‘round every two hundred million years,
And our galaxy is only one of millions of billions
In this amazing and expanding universe.

The universe itself keeps on expanding and expanding
In all of the directions it can whizz
As fast as it can go, at the speed of light, you know,
Twelve million miles a minute, and that’s the fastest speed there is.

So remember, when you’re feeling very small and insecure,
How amazingly unlikely is your birth,
And pray that there’s intelligent life somewhere up in space,
‘Cause there’s bugger all down here on Earth.
