Thursday Tidbits....

Sparks Of Insanity By Vinny "Bond" Marini Thursday, March 04, 2010

Remember a little band from back in the 60's called The Beatles? Yeah, I am sure one or two of you have heard of them. They had a few 'minor' hits and caused a little uproar when they came to the US from their home in Liverpool, England.

As I mentioned on Monday's show, The Beatles and that guy named Michael Jackson pretty much carried the music industry over the finish line for 2009. Without the release of Michael's "This Is It" release and the re-release of a remastered Beatles catalog, the music industry would have been dreadful, instead of just pitiful.

Well, if you are a fan of The Beatles, then you have to check out Beatles Tube. Here you will find all of the Beatles videos in one place, cataloged by album and by song alphabetically. All of these videos are on youtube, but here they are all in one place. Each video page also has a small description of the song and in some cases, information from the Beatles pulled in from various sources.

Not a huge Beatles fan? Well, you can then check out Rolling Stones Tube or U2 Tube or Queen Tube or even Elvis Tube.

In many instances, the lyrics for the songs are right there, so you can grab your hairbrush, crank up the Tuneage and sing into your mirror, channeling your inner Freddy Mercury.


My iTouch was en fuego this afternoon...I mean, sometimes it just knows how my day is going and ensures that the day is made easier...

  2. my iPod is pretty new (birthday gift from The Teamster) and I haven't really gone crazy loading it up. All three kids have offered to take on the task. I've graciously denied their helpful controlling selves.

    And I am not sure I'll ever let it pick the songs for me. I guess we know where the kids got their control issues.

    But thanks for the Beatles Tube link...I loved it...but Rhiannon will be thrilled...
