My afternoon has been spent with the glorious sound of Tool, at the moment Aenima is blending in quite well with the hockey game. I'm not sure what my neighbours think of Tool, but I can state for a fact that today they are loving it…..that, or they've fled the area!!

Does Tool fall into the category of psychological weapon?.

Today was a beautiful day. The first day of the year when there was not a single cloud in the sky all day & one could wear shorts and a t-shirt from morning till dusk. In celebration I shall post the four Beatles songs with Sun in the title in order of popularity:

Here Comes the Sun (1969, primary credit: George Harrison), 17th most popular Beatles tune with 9,878,408 video views in the 9 months since it was uploaded:

I'll Follow the Sun (1964, though written in1958/9 when Paul was only 16/17, primary credit: Paul McCartney), 99th most popular Beatles tune with 589,321 views in the 9 month period:

Sun King (1969, primary credit: John Lennon performing a one-upmanship and shout-out to Fleetwood Mac's Albatross), 125th most popular Beatles tune with 417,049 views in the same timeframe as those above:

Good Day Sunshine (1966, primary credit: Paul McCartney, once considered to be their worst song by the more edgey crowd due to it's dedication to cheesiness and early morning riser style upbeat sound, this opinion is innaccurate), 137th most popular Beatles tune with 372,134 views for the period:

George Harrison was easily my favourite Beatle. His concert from Bangladesh is amongst my most favourite of concerts to watch/listen to.

Today was a bit rainy this morning/early afternoon, I spent that time listening to three excellent albums: Facelift, Jar of Flies, and Dirt. Yessir, Alice in Chains makes my ears giddy!!!

Yes, Harrison really picked up in the popularity stakes the more The Beatles went on. His earlier Beatles stuff is quite hit and miss and his singing, let's be honest, really stunk on a few of his starter songs, around the 63-65 period, but the later stuff starts to really shine above both John and Paul. The above Sun King track was also John poking fun at Harrison, the word Sun King being a derivation of George's Something & uses the same "here comes the sun" lyrics. People being more popular than John really triggered his inner Jealous Guy.

It's also no surprise that Harrison had arguably the best track record in popular music once the band split up, especially with the Eric Clapton connection. Clapton, like lots of other people, was an honorary 5th Beatle. One of my favourite Harrison tracks is the relatively underrated Savoy Truffle from 1968's White Album. It's a song where Harrison sings about Clapton. Apparently Clapton had an uber sweet-tooth & guzzled sugar products like a 10 year old:

Ranking only the 144th most popular Beatles song for the period with 338,572 views. IMO this is scandalous, but then again it does say something when a band can produce tunes this good and for them to be considered also-rans. As many people note, Beatles album fillers are usually songs that would have made other bands only famous song.

The drawback to The Beatles making quite so many relatively perfect pop songs is that it can feel suffocating for all the other bands, what with there only being so many hours in a day & the ease to which one can just listen to The Beatles all day, for many days, without ever getting bored or tired of the same old thing.

I mean, I myself have an extremely huge list of talents and songs I'd love to post about and it's actually quite odd for me to like a band that doesn't have some dancing going on somewhere & I regularly feel guilty for all the others I neglect when I find myself listening to 5 hours of Beatles music, but then that's the whole point about them, they're sort of a central point where everyone can gather before once again spreading out to their preferred niche, they're the music equivalent of Grand Central Station & as such benefit the wider industry by being so busy.

Savoy Truffle is freakin' amazing isn't it

Fucked Up's 2006 album "Hidden World"

I've always enjoyed "David Comes to Life," from 2011, but I can't stop listening to their old stuff. Worth a list if for fans of hardcore: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uF9H…F24CF38BBAEFEE
