“I've been meditating for years. It's gotten to the point where I can very easily meditate until my mind goes blank. But then the problem is, there is no one to blame.” ― Garry Shandling
Merkel would never use the "Du" with Trump.
LOL - I see you working now. But back to the subject at hand, I remember that version and the fact that Los Beatlos worked in Hamburg. Were those their Best days?
Here's the real Beatles version
@Sixty: The song did come from their Hamburger days. Schlafen mit der Fräulein, das ist prima gut!
Don't fear the Reeperbahn, eh?
I toyed with putting up a Paddy Day appropriate song tonight, but went instead with politics. The one I was thinking is a delightful recording of Cait O'Riordan reprising her I'm A Man You Don't Meet Everyday. I admit I have a bit of a crush on her -- sorta the way Trooper crushes on Sinead O'Connor. I love the way her name is pronounced, and also the the way she says "drinkin'"
If any of them said her name I sure couldn't pick it out of that gibberish. Aye, I can't hear fer shite, but I could tell that the guitar was out of tune.That was truly an appropriate song on this day when so many people are saying "Erin go Braless!"
There's an interesting video on youtube of Hamburg, 1948. Not at all what you'd expect. Doesn't emphasize the war damage, just filled with marvelous unforced shots of the throbbing life of a great port city. Or Hamburg, 1946. One of those two. Hamburg has been turned into gleaming emptiness by modern architects and the port itself is now office parks and anodyne cafes. In other words it's like a thousand other places. But then the combination of water and tugs and steamers and liners and cranes and the northern skies and the city right smack up against all that busyness...well, it was something.
you gotta link for the handshake photo, sir?
That was truly an appropriate song on this day when so many people are saying 'Erin go Braless!'Thanks, Sixty. That should get the the video some clicks.
Trivia for William (if he still reads here) -- from her Wiki bio:The Pogues' most commercially successful song, "Fairytale of New York" from If I Should Fall from Grace with God, was written as a duet for O'Riordan and MacGowan, but the band eventually recorded it with Kirsty MacColl singing the female part.
Had a Murphy's, last night with dinner, corned beef. Enjoyed the hell out of it.
