CEASED DEMANDS

Dear Sir,

In the future, no one will be allowed to add to or subtract from a recording of one of my songs without my permission.

I had considered orchestrating ‘The Long And Winding Road’ but I had decided against it. I, therefore, want it altered to these specifications:-

1. Strings, horns, voices, and all added noises to be reduced in volume.
2. Vocal and Beatle instrumentation to be brought up in volume.
3. The harp to be removed completely at the end of the song and the original piano notes are to be substituted.
4. Don’t ever do it again!

WHEN I’M 64

The Beatles band is now 64 years since they got together, so why did they spell their name with an A instead of and E?

Some just learned the reason their name is spelled with an A is because it's a music pun, like the word beat. Get it?

Why didn't we all know this? Did you know this? I had posters of The Beatles in my bedroom and I never realized this.   https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=wUDRIC5RSX4&pp=ygUUd2hlbiBpJ20gNjQgYmVhdG…

Don’t Worry If There’s a Hell Below, We’re All Going to Go is a daring and provocative track from Curtis Mayfield’s 1970 debut album.

This marked a departure from his earlier work with The Impressions. Known for its bold social commentary and powerful funk-infused sound, the song confronts issues of societal unrest and inequality head-on.

It’s been decades since the groundbreaking music video and recording session organized to help poor African nations in the Continent.

Initially, USA for Africa was the brainchild of songwriter and activist Harry Belafonte. Shocked by the footage of starving children beamed onto NBC, he began recruiting fellow stars in December 1984 for what he envisaged as a benefit concert for the famine relief effort.

LIVE LAUGH LOVE

No matter how we're feeling, let's propose a toast. If we have been half successful, we are much better off than most.

If I was selling fantasies, I'd be a billionaire, but I am not disillusioned and I will never be going there.

When people ask me questions about the way I have lived my life. 39 years in media with a couple of good wives. A fine family with grandchildren, fancy limousines,  jacuzzis, and pools where I have had time to spare. I am not downhearted and I'm never going there.
