No, not that type of beetle! The English invasion known as the Beatles was the theme over at Monday Music Moves Me. It was suggested by Patrick from Adventures in Wiseland. Everyone did many songs from The Beatles which are, rightly, famous. I love the band but, strangely, I don't own an album of theirs...weird. I went a bit different but still all about the Beatles...
1. SUBROSA SUBWAY BY KLAATU-1976
I love this band that happens to be Canadian and have a prog rock feel ( am I right with that assessment??). Someone suggested that they were actually the Beatles who were hiding under this name and it became quite the talk of the town for a while. You can hear the influence with this song.
2. IMAGINE BY JOHN LENNON-1971
I love, love, love this song by John Lennon which, I think, is a powerful song. Many get their butts in the air about " no religion too," but many wars were started as a result of religion( Crusades anyone, never mind the zealots in the name of their God who commit aatrocities). I have seen people on TV say they believe in the Bible and place their gun on top of it...WTF? Some of the worst people I have met or seen are ready to judge and vilify another person because they disagree with their own beliefs. So, I think it's perfect to have that in the song. Sorry for my rant.
3. CELEBRATION BY PAUL MCCARTNEY-1997
I had to place in a classical piece that Sir Paul composed and he has composed more than one classical composition. The sadness is that the so called high brow snots scoff at his orchestral works which is such a shame because I think it's quite good.
So these are 3 of my choices which are odd, except for Imagine(maybe), but it works. I do love The Beatles and my fav was always George. Loved him in The Travelling Willburys.
