I love that song Becky!

After watching it I clicked on Ferry Across The Mersey, another classic, and enjoyed seeing the old Top Of The Pops chart in the background. Wonderful nostalgia. Spoilt by sight of the presenter though.

Paul Simon is 73 today.

As an aside I caught the end of Sunday Night At The Palladium last night and the star turn was Art Garfunkel
He sang The Sound Of Silence, sounding a little strained at times which made me feel uncomfortable for him. Sad

Ken Bruce played 'The Man From Laramie' two days ago, rather a nice little song.

Oh I missed that Schiz and I quite like to hear it now and then. Can't believe his age though!

Just had to resurrect this thread to wish Macca a Happy 80th Birthday. Cool

A true musical legend

Feeling very nostalgic this morning listening to Freda Kelly (secretary of the fan club) and Billy Kinsley of the Merseybeats reminiscing.

At about 1hr 52 mins in if anyone wants a listen.

Happy 80th to the amazing Macca. A phenomenon, force of nature, and the driving force behind the Fabs for the last few years. Greatest songsmith of the 20th century.

And I say that as a huge John fan.
