Song of the Day #668

Song of the Day: Got To Get You Into My Life, words and music by John Lennon and Paul McCartney, was a hit for the Beatles, from their album, "Revolver." Tomorrow, Paul McCartney turns 64. Yes, Sir Paul: We still need you! Like so many of the Lennon-McCartney songs, this one has been covered by many other artists (including my sister-in-law). Listen to audio clips of a hit rendition by Earth, Wind, and Fire and another by Ella Fitzgerald.

I'm so glad you brought up the Lennon/McCartney! I'm a Beatlemaniac; became one 6 years after they broke up. (I guess I was a little slow on the uptake there, but I was only 6 months old when they first landed at JFK).

This is such a happy song, full of energy. I'm glad you had a link to the EW&F version...one of the few bright spots the cinematic mess that was "Sgt. Pepper" movie of 1978, starring the Bee Gees and Peter Frampton (although I saw it 8 times in the theater when it was originally released--Peter Frampton and Barry Gibb were SOOOO CUTE! ***squeals like the 13-year-old she was at that time***).

Thanks for bringing back some memories.

Sir Paul could probably use our support right now, too. :-)

Yes, indeed, Peri---and I too love the Beatles. :)
