A Beatle Night Music

Posted on: July 30, 2010

The only down side to summer is there is nothing good on TV or cable. After my 20 mile “bike training”, I found myself aimlessly channel surfing. As I was about to throw in the towel – or in this case, the remote, I stumbled on the telecast of the Gershwin Awards paying tribute to Sir Paul McCartney on PBS. The event was held in the East Room of the White House and it is given by the President. To commemorate this special evening, an intimate concert was held paying tribute to Sir Paul. A bunch of artists walked up on stage and sang our favorite songs written by our favorite Beatle. I really felt like I was treated to a free concert. Plus the songs made me so nostalgic of the days when we were little and our parents would play The Beatles on the cassette player. Here are some of my favorites.

Vodpod videos no longer available.


This next one features Elvis Costello.  Love it!
And this from the Foo Fighters guy
The evening was capped with Sir Paul treating the audience to some of his songs…
I am looking for the video of Corrine Bailey Rae singing Blackbird but I can’t find it anywhere.   So moving, of course I had to cry!
