Welcome to Thumpin’ Thursday! I’ve dug back in time for this week’s video, and gone to a classic song, and one of our many Beatles cover songs.
The song is “One After 909” by The Beatles, from their album “Let It Be”. I wonder if this song is in their new Rockband game? Well, if it isn’t, it perhaps should be. It’s simple, but just has a catchy, bluesy feel to it.
I first heard this song thanks to Chris, when the two of us and our friend Alberto did a show at his house. This song opened the show and it stuck with me because of how catchy it is.
When you look at the lyrics, you see it’s definitely a train story. It apparently is about a man who’s going to pick up his friend/girlfriend/wife/whatever at the train station, but the woman, who was supposed to get on 909, gets on the one after!
I ordered a new HD TV yesterday because our old box went boom on me. I was watching Sportscenter Tuesday morning and all of a sudden “BEOUUUU”, and then that was followed by the smell of electronics burning. Not good. So, I purchased a 32 inch LG LCD with a whole lotta HDMI inputs. I was a little nervous, but then I noticed my cable box has an HDMI out.
Funny thing, is last week I said to my wife “Do you think it’s time to get a new TV?”
Ok well i’ll see you next week for my next video! Toodles!
