So Paul lifted the lyrics but the tune is his - and now I'm intrigued to find out what the original tune was!


It's a 17th Century English folk song/madrigal...

As Paul himself told journalist David Wigg:

"I was just playing the piano in Liverpool, my dad's house, and my sister Ruth's piano book - she was learning piano, and you know those sort of 'D'Ye Ken John Peel' and 'Golden Slumbers' and your old favourites was up on the...thing, y'know, the stand y'know, there was a little book with all those words in it and stuff... so I was just flicking through it, and I came to 'Golden Slumbers' you know, so I just started - coz I can't read music so I didn't know the tune, I can't remember the old tune y'know - so I started just playing my tune to it, and then I liked the words so I just kept that, y'know, then it fitted with another bit of song I had, which was the verse in between it, so I  just made that into a song... just happened coz I was reading her book".

Been gorgeous here lately: high 60s/low 70s, sunny and clear, lots of lovely foliage.  :) I see there's a chance of snow in the forecast for Tuesday, though; boo! By this time we've usually already had some snow, though, so I shouldn't be greedy.

Was watching an old episodes of The Simpsons last night, and during one part of a 1991 episode, part of the melody of "Golden Slumbers" is played. (Wonder how they got around the copyright?) My daughters just walked in the door as it was playing, and they immediately started singing the lyrics.  :)

I wasn't able to post a clip, because there's a fee, but here's an excerpt from IMDB that mentions it:

Homer's dream sequence was accompanied by a version of the Beatles' "Golden Slumbers" when originally aired. A different song is featured in the syndicated version, although the original soundtrack plays on the Season 3 DVD set.

It's always nice to come across any Beatles reference!

The clue's in the web-site title - 'Ultimate Classic Rock'.
Anything calling itself that has to be c***!
I doubt anyone conducting this list has heard a Who record before 'Tommy'.

Absolutely nothing wrong with the list. Both pre and post-Tommy Who have been talked about a whole lot, it's nice to see that solo Pete gets a bit of attention for a change. Some of us do get bored and do listen/read about other things than the well-established classics, you know.

The Who didn't record many covers (they didn't need to), but I really love this one:
 Heat Wave 1967

I always liked their cover of that, too.

I doubt anyone conducting this list has heard a Who record before 'Tommy'.

Well, these types of lists are always so subjective. I could probably rattle off 10 more off the top of my head that I personally think are underrated.
