After revisiting How I Met Your Mother season 6, I realized the season started with the tune “The Ballad of Sir Frankie Crisp” and ended the season with the very same tune. Just amazing.
Have you ever noticed the very same of Death Cab’s perfect album Transatlanticism? The fuzzy sounds at the beginning of “The New Year” also wrap up the album’s closer “A Lack of Color.”
1973 was a good year…
I also started listening to Gram Parsons’ album GP recently, also released in 1973. 1973 was the year Parsons died of an overdose… He was two months shy of club 27….
This post however is about my favourite Beatle–George, and his brilliant album Living in the Material World.
And this marvelous documentary Martin Scorsese directed:
Aww shucks, this is a real love song:
I adore Scorsese and Harrison. I warmly encourage you to see this doc:
“Tame Impala’s influences are vast, drawing on sounds more mystical and dreamy than the Beatles ever touched.”
I wrote the above comment in a review I wrote for my school paper and I sort of regret it after!!! Bold statement.
I know the Stones wouldn’t’ve made a song like this… But I love the innocence the Beatles had in the sixties.
This has to be one of the most beautiful songs ever created –
Just watched the Scorsese documentary on George Harrison called Living in a Material World. A marathon watch, but definitely worth your time.
I always thought of Scorsese as a Rolling Stones guy, but he really did this Beatle justice.
I don’t think we’ve seen sunshine in a week!!!!!!! Time to whip out that bike.
GEORGE HARRISON MARTIN SCORSESE
This is incredible, just watched the first half of the documentary this weekend. You must go buy All Things Must Pass, one of my favourite records in the whole, entire, world of music.
