Song of the day: Linda Ronstadt- It’s So Easy

it's so easy linda ronstadt

Back in 1958, the song It’s So Easy was sung by the Crickets. One of their members was Buddy Holly, who recorded some hits solo later. They would not reach the charts with this song. In the seventies, the song was picked up by Linda Ronstadt. She recorded in 1977, and did reach the charts: number 5 in the US and number 11 in the UK. Another artist that had a go on the song several times was Paul McCartney. First with the Beatles, later solo, but he did not manage to chart with the song. Enjoy

The Beatles

Time to add one of the greatest bands in the world to the Hall Of Fame. Or should we say: THE greatest band in the world? Fact is, that they still earn a lot with their albums, whether they are on vinyl or CD, downloads, streaming, etc. Recently, their work was remastered, a “new” CD was released with never released work, and their Number one hits were compiled in a remastered version. The Beatles are still alive and kicking, or at least: their music is. John Lennon has died, unfortunately, as is George Harrison. The only two alive are Ringo Starr and Paul McCartney. And they proved that they could do their old trick on the Grammy’s from 2014. After more than fifty years, their music still sounds great and most of them belong to the finest music in the History of Music. They did a lot for music, and therefore this place is well deserved!

Song of the day: Paul McCartney- Wonderful Christmastime

Christmas is coming nearer every day, so a new song is waiting for you! Actually, it’s one of my favourite Christmas songs, since the structure and the music is so simple. And yes, the man had a great career after the Beatles! Enjoy:

Music Documentary 6: About George Harrison

Some documentaries are very good. Some are short and others are a bit longer. This documentary was long. Three and a half hours.

I saw it on TV, I think last year somewhere, and I thought it was a superb documentary. A lot of archive material, material which never was showed and new music. That’s why we watch documentaries! But not only for the exclusive material, we also want to learn something. And that was a point in which it succeeded. I didn’t know a lot about the Beatles, and the things I knew were about either Paul McCartney or John Lennon. Those are interesting persons, but if you think George Harrison was boring, you’re deadly wrong. This documentary makes you see the Beatles from a different perspective, and learns you a lot about their different stages, such as the stage in which Eastern philosophy is very important.

If you can find it anywhere on DVD, buy it! You won’t regret it, even though you don’t like the Beatles. I could not find a link, but it’s called Living In The Material World.

Song of the day: Paul McCartney- We All Stand Together

Hello everyone,

After the frog from Roger Glover yesterday, I had a visit from some more frogs. They came together with Rupert the Bear, to tell me that their song should be song of the day.
Well, because of this question, and because it’s a good song, here’s:
Paul McCartney with We All Stand Together!

Of course, Paul didn’t do it alone. No, not with the Beatles, but together with the Frog Chorus!
Well, Christmas is creeping closer and closer…
Tomorrow a new song!

Song of the day: Roger Glover & Guests- Love Is All

Hello everyone,

Here’s another song of the day. It’s not a Christmas song, with which I start tomorrow!
Firstly, a clip with a frog who is singing the song.

No, I have not gone mad, I’m talking about Roger Glover and Guests, with Love is all.
It was one of the first drawn clips, and later Paul McCartney did it, too, with his song We all stand together.

That was it for today, and tomorrow a new song!
