Sinead O'Connor. She did have her 15 minutes of fame, and maybe even

a bonus minute or two, and then fell off the earth, at least as far as

record sales and popularity, though she kept on plugging along.

Performing The Emperor's New Clothes along with the dance of

the burning coals.







Sorry about the ad. I tried to post a version without one, but it snuck

in anyway. Sneaky, sneaky.

The Beatles performing Hey Jude. If I recall the facts and figures

correctly, this single was the Beatles' longest, clocking in at over

seven minutes, and of their singles, also spent the longest time at #1

in the US, 8 or 9 weeks. The longest Beatles' song was Revolution 9,

which was a minute longer than Hey Jude, but which, for some inex-

plicable reason, was never issued as a single. Go figure.

That was just a tongue-in-cheek comment. I doubt even Lennon, at his

most drugged out, suggested it be released as a single. He was of course

very adamant that it be on The White Album. McCartney and George

Martin were the most insistent that it be cut. I don't think Ringo or

George really cared too much. Since the WA has everything on it,

why not throw in the kitchen sink too? It certainly didn't seem to

effect the commercial value of the album. I believe it is the best selling

Beatles' album or a very close second. It is an interesting little side

story. Life goes on.

We got eight inches of snow yesterday, and today everything is cozy and quiet.

Have to see if it stays till Christmas. Gene Autry with an early sighting of you

know who, Here Comes Santa Claus...right down Santa Claus Lane.

An iconoclastic bloke like the former Johnny Silver would likely point out that

before there was Christmas, there was Saturnalia, and before that the celebration

of the Winter Solstice, which is today, December 21st. John Lennon performing

Happy Xmas (War is Over) Happy Holidays.
