If you happen to be one of the two followers of our blog, I must apologize for the monopolization of posts. But once more, it has not been so due to my having too much initiative but instead for my colleagues having none
But the main focus must go to the original version, which belongs to Elvis Presley, the King - not only because he must be given credited for having written a great melody and quite powerful lyrics (that unfortunately are still true more that 40 years later), but also because it is still the best version in my opinion (at least from the three I know). Hope you like it too
Or, as the spanish people call it, “Palomitas de maiz“. I was listening to a couple of songs of a Spanish band called “Los Pekenikes” and this was one of them. You might know it already, due to Crazy Frog (or other). Not that I find it a great song, but it is definitely a different song, so I thought it would not be a bad idea to post
By the way, the title is called popcorn because it “supposedly” sounds like popcorn popping…
Beatles’ fans have probably recognized what this post is about by the title – and you’re not mistaken.
I’ve been mainly listening to Neil Young, but there have been too many Neil songs in this blog recently, so I thought I should give him (or you!) a break. And besides Neil Young, the one song that captivated me this week was The Beatles‘ Golden Slumbers. I had discovered it several months ago through a John Denver cover, but I only gave it more attention more recently when I listened to the Beatles version (not that John Denver’s isn’t good, quite on the contrary!). Although it is considered a separate song, there is not a separate version of it (as far as I know), being it part of a medley which also includes the great “Carry that weight” (to which the post title alludes) and others.
I’ll post the whole version, but here you have a link that contains only the two songs I mention (which are actually the ones I listen to).
