I just heard "Something" when I stopped at the store on my way home for lunch. It was just like a few weeks ago when I was shopping and heard "Here Today" from The Beach Boy's "Pet Sounds" album. (Which surprised the heck out of me!) I looked at the people around me and wondered if any of them were as pleased as I was by what they were hearing or if it was just going in one ear and out the other.

This past Thursday, May 29th, Here Comes the Sun (the Beatles version) was playing in a Thai restaurant where I was having lunch with some of my co-workers (Jesup, GA).

Over this past weekend, while channel surfing at home, I paused at a movie I have never seen before (I Know What You Did Last Summer) and a cover version of Hey Bulldog (???!!!) was playing in the background of the scene.

Today, June 3, I heard No More Lonely Nights (Macca's version) playing in a grocery store (Waycross, GA).

The mall I walk through to get to and from work plays background mall instrumental music. And they've done a few Beatle tunes lately. I've heard Norwegian Wood and Julia. And there's this guy who plays saxophone outside of the mall for money. I heard him playing the tune of Can't Buy Me Love recently! It was pretty neat, and unique.

Driving home from work the news radio played Paperback Writer. Sometimes Beatle songs seem to sound even better when you hear them as one offs unexpectedly.

My 18-y/o daughter and I were traveling toward a vacation destination in Florida, USA when we passed by a street named "Penny Lane".  Guess what song was playing on the radio at that same moment in time? Nope, not Penny Lane but its flip-side - Strawberry Fields Forever!  We were both ecstatic over that bit of serendipitous timing.

Sure. last thursday we went into Concord, NH to see The Tenors. They're the 4 guy's that are on PBS occasionally. They were amazing to hear! @nd half of the show was on the fun side and they started off with a cover of Something and ended with a medley of Pavoratti and Elvis. I'll see if I can find some video

  Been having a discussion regarding Beatles mono vs stereo, so I did a solid mono cd listening test again. Although I do appreciate the 2009 mono CDs, I still refer back to the 2009 stereo CD’s.

  Part of the discussions was the major flaw of the older stereo recordings with vocals on 1 channel and most of the instruments on the other. I came to the conclusion that if I wasn’t trying to hard to listen to the vocals, it really didn’t bother me, as I still preferred the overall separation in the stereo recordings overall.  This test was done with my headphones.  I find it’s even less noticeable with a home stereo, unless I was sitting too close to 1 of the speakers only.

My 2 cents only.... And did I mention, I was listening to the Beatles.  ;D

On our radio they have begun playing the intro to A Hard Day's Night (or at least it sounds like it to my ears) before talking about the news or something like that. I'm fooled every time and I'm let down every time, thinking it's going to be something about The Beatles. Other than that I heard Here Comes The Sun whilst walking by a shop the other day. It made me jump with joy but I had to compose myself.  ha2ha

Don't worry about it. My goofiness can be more than a bit vague at times.

But back to the topic at hand, I haven't actually been to a Walmart for over 7 years, so what do I know about what they're playing?

Interestingly, I recently happened upon a link to a bunch of old Kmart store audio that an employee digitized and put online...

https://archive.org/details/attentionkmartshoppers (https://archive.org/details/attentionkmartshoppers)

I downloaded a couple of these and it's pretty nostalgic. And you know, they actually played some pretty decent tunes from that time between their little announcements. Cute.

It was quite an interesting juxtaposition to see all of the Christmas items on display and for sale while John is singing "Christ, you know it ain't easy, you know how hard it can be, the way things are going, they're gonna crucify me..."
