Carry that band a long time!

Abbey RoadBeatles’ 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 BeatlesGolden 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).

    The Beatles were truly aware of how to write great songs. I really like their later years, when they started entering psychedelic ground… The White Album, Revolver, Sgt. Pepper’s, Abbey Road, really nice albums.
