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.
