B.E.: A warning would have been preferable. It had only been about 4 weeks since it expired. Oh well. Now it's renewed and the ticket is paid. I doubt I'll make that mistake again! Dec 5, 2019 18:28:11 GMT *
B.E.: I was listening to a Beatles podcast and they mentioned Gettin' In Over My Head without even a hint of criticism. I was taken aback considering most Beach Boys fans can't mention it without noting how 'bad' it is. Dec 5, 2019 18:34:33 GMT *
Kapitan: Interesting! What was the context? Dec 5, 2019 18:43:36 GMT
B.E.: The episode focused mainly on solo Beatle duets. Near the end, one of the hosts mentioned "A Friend Like You", namechecked the album, and talked about how fans have been interested in a collaboration between the two for many years. Dec 5, 2019 18:51:37 GMT
B.E.: The podcast is technically a 'solo' Beatles podcast, so they're the type of fans who are more likely to appreciate later period work. The sentiment was that it was a decent/nice song and at least we have that one collaboration. Dec 5, 2019 18:55:58 GMT *
B.E.: They also mentioned Steve Kalinich by name, as he cowrote the song. Dec 5, 2019 19:04:36 GMT
kds: I tend to appreciate late career material too, almost to a fault, but wow, I thought A Friend Like You was godawful. Dec 5, 2019 19:15:25 GMT
B.E.: It might be bottom third of the album, but it's still pleasant IMO. If Paul wasn't attached to it, I think some fans would be more forgiving. But, as it is, they're disappointed. My main problem with the song is the repetitiveness, but it's catchy. Dec 5, 2019 19:21:58 GMT
B.E.: It's probably been a year since I listened to it, but I can sing it off the top of my head. Dec 5, 2019 19:22:35 GMT
kds: It's catchy, but to me, catchy and good don't always go hand in hand. Dec 5, 2019 19:32:00 GMT
B.E.: I know what you mean, kds … Is this the only live version ever? :) www.youtube.com/watch?v=pv3oLWZO55I ... Musically, I like the song, but I think the section featuring Paul is poorly structured. Dec 5, 2019 19:34:21 GMT *
B.E.: GIOMH has disappeared from Spotify and YouTube Music. Dec 5, 2019 20:03:52 GMT *
Kapitan: I was always disappointed in A Friend Like You because it should have been so much more. It's a fine little throwaway song, ok fine. But that's how you use the long-sought dream collaboration? Why not give him "How Could We Still Be Dancin"? Dec 6, 2019 0:07:47 GMT
Sheriff John Stone: A Charlie Brown Christmas is on TV tonight - 8:00 PM EST. :) Dec 6, 2019 0:21:00 GMT
kds: We usually wait until Christmas Eve night to watch Charlie Brown Dec 6, 2019 13:32:07 GMT
Sheriff John Stone: The network (ABC) shows it so early in the season, even for somebody like me who listens to Christmas music 12 months of the year. However, the last few years they have been repeating it a few weeks later, much closer to Christmas. Dec 6, 2019 13:43:19 GMT
kds: CBS does the same with Frosty and Rudolph. Dec 6, 2019 14:14:38 GMT
Kapitan: The last Zeppelin album, Coda, is up for discussion. Dec 6, 2019 15:23:23 GMT
kds: I posted Floyd's 4th album - Ummagumma yesterday. Next week, I'd do an all encompassing post for 1970 to include Atom Heart Mother, Zabriskie Point, and a few non album tracks. Dec 6, 2019 18:31:30 GMT
B.E.: The footage of the shootout on a Florida interstate is scary, tragic stuff. The UPS driver (who was taken hostage) and an innocent bystander were killed. That couldn't have been by the book! Just about everyone was in harm's way. Total chaos. Dec 7, 2019 0:51:48 GMT
