Beatles. Blackpool Big Night Out. July 19, 1964
The video of this show has disappeared, believed wiped!
There is some private audio. They played: A Hard Day’s Night, Things We Said Today, You Can’t Do That, If I Fell (with a fasle start – ‘to prove we’re playing live’) and Long Tall Sally.
ANYONE WHO HASN’T HEARD THIS LISTEN TO IT I AM SHAKING RIGHT NOW
I’m in love
"Just write ‘attracts me like a cauliflower’"

Kimileri için ölüm asla geçerli bir kavram değildir.
37. “sonsuzluğa kavuşma” yıl dönümün kutlu olsun güzel adam.
For somebody in the world, “death” is not an available word.
And Elvis is not dead. He just won the eternity. Beautiful man.

The Beach Boys-“Wouldn’t It Be Nice”
"Wouldn’t it be nice if we could wake up
In the morning when the day is new?
And after having spent the day together,
Hold each other close the whole night through?”
June 5, 1956 ▸ Elvis performs “Hound Dog” on The Milton Berle Show.
(…) as the song comes to an end he is dragging the microphone down to the floor, staggering almost to his knees. Scotty and D.J. and Bill keep their eyes glued on him, there is only the slightest flicker of surprise as he points at the audience and declares emphatically, You ain’t nothin’ but a hound dog, then goes into his patented half-time ending, gripping the mike, circling it sensuously, jackknifing his legs out as the audience half-screams, half-laughs, and he laughs, too — it is clearly all in good fun.
— (From Last Train to Memphis by Peter Guralnick, 1994)

August 11, 1973: The Birth of Hip-Hop
On this day in 1973, DJ Kool Herc dropped a new sound that changed history. While DJ’ing at his sister’s back-to-school party, Herc tried something new on the turntable: he extended an instrumental beat (scratching the track) to let people dance longer (break dancing) and began MC’ing (rapping) during the extended breakdancing. And so DJ Kool Herc set hip-hop on its dynamic evolution towards the expressive art form it is today.
