The Beatles first American appearance-43 years ago today.



Hat tip: Allahpundit at Hot Air

What always amazes me is how much memorable music they did, but were only together for six years after this appearance.

**UPDATE** Additional video clips here at Newsbusters.

RW,

Speaking of Hot Air, did you see this?

I have been seething all day at how this story has been reported, even at FOX.

What a freaking disgrace. And Tough Tooties to Huge Blowhard and comrades who doesn't like my use of the word freaking, like I freaking care what they think.
 
It's the Beat'els man.

Danish, if they don't like it, give 'em some more.
 
JnJ,

Believe me, I do! Did you happen to read MLs today? Midori was out of her mind on the topic of Bill O'Reilly and exploited children.

What a freaking ignorant parrot.
But we already knew that, right?
 
Yep, I read it. Sounded like Edward's blogmaster again.
 
Speaking of the blogmistress, Iowahawk is adapting a play for her and her silky pony.

Presenting "My Fair Blogger"

Language warning should be expected anytime Mistress Amanda or Iowahawk's interpretation is around.
 
Oh my, someone needs to put some audio on that!
 
Jnj,

Can't you just hear Amanda singing it on the street corner?
 
Can't recall much about the Beatles first appearance. My sister and her friends were all screaming and crying while they watched them on T.V.

I do recall having a spitball war with my brother in his room. We both went to see what all the hysteria was about. My brother just shook his head, and then we returned to our war.

I liked Lennon's later stuff. Some of Harrison's too.

Buy Danish:

There's an excellent interview of Michael Maloof at Frontline. It pretty much sums up the reasons why the intel differed. I can link it here if you want. I'll have to locate it.
 
BBSE --

In my life. . .

There are places I remember
All my life, though some have changed
Some forever not for better
Some have gone and some remain
All these places had their moments
With lovers and friends
I still can recall
Some are dead and some are living
In my life I've loved them all


Nice memories on a snowy, New England Saturday afternoon :-.)
 
Honu:

In My Life that's a good one.

I always liked Lennon's utopian dreamsong Imagine, and Harrison's Here Comes The Sun.

Maybe George was predicting global warming, but he did say "it's alright".

I'm with George.
 
I can't believe no one has mentioned Maxwell's Silver Hammer among the Beatle classics.
 
@@,

I hate Imagine. Nice tune, scary lyrics.

I loved Rubber Soul

And

Abbey Road.

And

Revolver

They lost me with White Album.
 
Buy Danish:

Imagine was scary? You have to remember, I was an idealist, a dreamer in my youth.

I was looking through the albums you listed and found Good Day Sunshine. Sunshine is my ideal now.

RW:

I'm having difficulty remembering all their songs. Maxwell's Silver Hammer? Isn't that the one whose beat is similar to Dylan's Subterranian Homesick Blues, or have I wandered too far?
 
...and OMG, they sang Rocky Racoon?

I hated that song, really...hated, hated, hated that song.
 
Buy Danish,

If I even know any Dylan songs I sure don't know them by name.

Here's an animated video somebody put together with the song.
 
RW:

That Maxwells Silver Hammer song sucks. Unlike Dylan's Subterranean Homesick Blues.
 
@@,

The guy that put the animation together calls it his favorite song of all time. I guess you understood that by "Buy Danish" at 7:49 I meant "@@."
 
WOW! Now that was a song that sucked!! Good thing they cut it off after 29 seconds.

Randy: No dog, there just wasn't anything there.

Paula: Thanks for coming by and doing that for us. You do know this is a singing competition don't you?

Simon: You're kidding us right? It's a no. Rolls eyes and laughs with Randy then tells Dylan Other door
 
RW,

Bringing it all back home is a masterpiece, and don't you forget it.

@@ is right, Maxwell's Silver Hammer sucks, but the cartoon was good. I realized that I never really listened to the words before.

I still love Abbey Road.
 
Buy Danish,

Bringing it All Back Home starts with that same awful rap song that @@ linked to.

So Dylan is the father of hip-hop, thanks Bob.
 
Here's a lit'el beat'els.


Hey Jude!
