I thought we could use a thread for this.
Lately, I’ve been on a John Lennon kick, and find myself listening to some of my favorite Beatles songs by him. Today while doing some house cleaning I had Abbey Road on and “Mean Mr. Mustard” came on. It exemplifies the Lennon sound in my opinion, and I absolutely love it. According to him, it was “just a bit of crap” he wrote in India. The eight-song medley on side two of Abbey Road is really pretty fun to listen to, with the Lennon contributions being my favorite.
I have also been listening to Sam Cooke, and quite love a compilation of his greatest hits from 1962. While “You Send Me” is probably his most well known and beloved song most of what I’ve heard from his catalog is just awesome. The circumstances surrounding his death are shrouded in controversy and are quite tragic. Truly a great loss, as he was only 33 or so when he died.
Also, for whatever reason, the Alice In Chains “Dirt” album has been on constant rotation for over a year now. During my workouts, I’ve been listening to lots of Wu-Tang and RATM.
