Nice. There’s just something timeless about the Beatles…
though I usually listen to stuff that’s probably a bit too hard for you bunch of daffodils.
Great pick, Dan!
The Beatles always remind me of my childhood and it was good.
Dude! Should have picked, Something. I love that song. I remember the first Beatles song I ever liked, Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds!
Dan, it sure would be nice to see a Warren Zevon tune selected for the Friday drive-time tune. Lawyers, Guns and Money seems appropriate. The late, great Mr. Zevon’s birthday was Jan 24th. Happy Belated Birthday, Warren.
J.M. White, I don’t know what you like, but for hard metal I like A7x and Bullet For My Valentine when I’m working out. My mom calls it angry white boy music. Jethro Tull will always be my absolute favorite, though.
Late night Zevon.
This week is the 50th anniversary of the Beatles first US tour. I remember standing at the school bus stop talking with my friends about their appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show. Wow, I’m old as dirt.
Contra, JT was great. I saw them several times in concert back in the day. Locomotive Breath is still one of my favorite songs ever.
Contra: Trivium is always good for working out and I’ve been a fan of BFMV since I heard their first song. I’ll forever be a Tool fan and love old school Metallica, Megadeth, Maiden. I’ve been known to bounce between Carcass, Johnny Cash, Perfect Circle, Ella Fitzgerald, Sleater Kinney and classical, too.
I think I’ll always have a soft spot in my heart for girl bands; I did a short stint on some roadie work for Veruca Salt back in the ’90s and I’m pretty sure I was in love with Nina Gordon.
Oh! How could I forget! It’s hard to deny the awesomeness that is the Tull.
Also, August Burns Red.

The Beatles first U.S. tour was in 1964, which makes it the 49th, not 50th, anniversary of that milestone.

YOU feel old as dirt! Hell I was a college senior!
Music is a funny thing….you can hear the same song over the years and still hear new things in it. How this group wrote,toured heavey, and keep up the quality is beyond me.
