Show #30: The American Invasion

The 30th show already? No clever theme related to that fine number, mainly because I’m not very clever. Still, we had a solid show with some epic artists, as we tackled The British Invasion. It was a weird phenomenon where British artists covered American artists, yet somehow these British artists still took America by storm. The white kids in the great US and A had no idea that the songs they were hearing from these bands “invading” the states were actually written and played by artists right in their own backyard. Of course many of these bands went on to reach legendary status like The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, and The Who, they all came from one place: American music. USA! USA!

George Harrison was anything but quiet, which you’ll notice after hearing his killer Beatles tunes. Lennon and McCartney usually allowed him an average of one or two songs per album, and he sure didn’t disappoint. I think some of the best Beatles songs were Harrison songs, but hey, you tell me what you think, because thinking thoughts is a good thing (or so I’ve been told anyway).
