'ICONS OF POP HISTORY'
on 7 July 2013
films were the vehicle that made seeing your pop - idols possible
to the many.
'The Beatles' were of course - the ultimate 'Pop Group'
as in this film the music during the early years was fresh and
uncomplicated, very commercial and loved by all ( well most )
the story line....'Ringo' wearing a sacrificial ring he'd found
and finding himself hunted by those that wanted it back, trouble
being.....he can't get it off to give it back.
it'll make ya' smile now and then for sure......the bonus......
the music is great.
with songs such as the title track....'Help' a number one, also
'A Ticket to Ride' also a number one, along with enjoyable numbers
such as....'The night before' .....'You've got to hide your love away'
....'I need you' ....'You're going to lose that girl' ...'Another girl'
the seven songs release on side one of the 'Help' album. ( 1965 )
a little tale ... I was lucky enough to see many, many pop idols of
the day on stage live.......however, how many people do you know
that actually turned down the opportunity to see the fab-four perform
a good friend back then had secured tickets to see 'The Beatles' at
a venue around 40 miles away.......great opportunity.
must have been around mid 1963, the group would have been three hits
into their golden career....'Beatle Mania' had already taken hold, in
fact probably the most talked about subject of the time.
though I quite liked their songs released up to that time I wasn't
hooked to be honest.........I didn't take up the chance to see them,
a decision I've had to live with ever since....what an idiot ...eh ?
by the time their fourth and fifth singles charted 'She Loves You' then
'I want to hold your hand' I had woken up, realizing just how good the music
The Music, truly 'Magic'
the memories will come flooding back.
