Sunday Funnies – John Lennon Tub Scene From A Hard Days Night

John Lennon goofing around in the bathtub in a scene from The Beatles movie, A Hard Days Night.

   Hard Days Night is my favorite Beatles movie simply because it seems so fresh and carefree. This is one of my favorite scenes in the movie with John Lennon horsing around with toy submarines in the bathtub. He just cracks me up doing all the funny voices and generally goofing off. I always get a good laugh out of it and I hope you do today as well.   Continue reading “Sunday Funnies – John Lennon Tub Scene From A Hard Days Night”

  It’s been done with with some great live bands such as AC/DC, Metallica and Aerosmith, but The Beatles Rock Band is like a dream come true for fans around the world. Harmonix has done an amazing job of bringing the music of the Beatles to life in an interactive setting, giving fans the chance to step into the shoes of any one of the Fab Four and play through their career.

 From the time I popped in the game to when I had to force myself to turn it off, I was in Beatles heaven. The re-mastered audio tracks of the game sound amazing and the graphics are visually pleasing. Stages of the game are played in digital representations of the same venues the Beatles played in, such as the Ed Sullivan Show and Shea Stadium. The only stage that differs from the others is the Abbey Road recordings. Rather than show repeated scenes of the historic recording space, Harmonix created imaginative dreamscapes to represent the lyrics and tones of the music being played.    Continue reading “The Beatles – Rock Band Video Game Review”

   I thought this was a very interesting and funny video clip. It’s the cross-mixing of two of my favorite bands of all time, The Who and The Beatles.

The Beatles Anthology Reunion Jam

George Harrison, Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr reunited for the Beatles Anthology project and had a fun informal jam.

  Here’s a really cool live jam George, Paul and Ringo did in 1994 during the production of  The Beatles Anthology. The beginning seems a bit uninspired but they really kick it on “Blue Moon Of Kentucky”. The best part is hearing Paul and George harmonize on “Blue Moon Of Kentucky” towards the end of the clip.
