And he snuck in to see the Yesterday film. I saw some of the interview yesterday. He's two people - the real him and that other guy, Paul McCartney. Interesting.

Larry put Hank W. here and Lisa, Rosanne. Has anyone been watching the Ken Burns' Country Music on PBS the past two weeks? It's an amazing piece yet again by KB and company. Good piece on Roseann last night among others: Waylon and Willie, Emmylou, Dolly P. and they usually end with two strong songs: He Stopped Lovin Her Today and Jolene, last night.

Back to our regularly scheduled BOTB programming.

Gold - All I Really Want to Do (The Byrds - 1965)
My band used to do this. Great sound. Again, different from Dylan’s original; especially that bridge. My fourth favourite Byrds track after 'It Won't Be Wrong', 'I'll Feel a Whole Lot Better' and 'Chestnut Mare'. 

Silver - All I Wanna Do (The Beach Boys - 1970)
Brian Wilson reportedly said this song was ‘boring’ in a 1995 interview. Who am I to argue?

Bronze - All I Wanna to Do Is Make Love to You (video version) (Heart - 1990)
Heartwarming tale about casual sex between a woman who’s already in a relationship and a guy she doesn’t know the name of.

I was reading this just last weekend at vh1.com: 

A #2 smash power ballad written by super-producer Mutt Lange. Heart’s Ann and Nancy Wilson loved Mutt and his composition, but the sisters never felt at ease with the lyrics’ larger implications about conniving women. A few years later, while rehearsing “All I Wanna Do” for a concert that evening, Ann stopped playing it and announced, “You know what? This song gives me the creeps!” Nancy and the rest of the band laughingly agreed, and it was dropped on the spot from Heart’s live set.

Participant - All I Wanna Do (video version) (Sheryl Crow - 1994)

This is how much I hate this song. I placed it below Heart and a song written by ‘Mutt’ Lange. 


Quote:

The internet says "I Don't Want To Spoil the Party" was meant for Ringo to sing, him being a country music fan. I wonder why he didn't sing it.

Because it’s one of the Beatles’ very best songs (easily in my Top 10), personal to John and way too good to waste on the Schnoz. 

There is much contention over who is singing the lower harmony in the verses of the Beatles original. My money is on John AND Paul in unison.


The video that Lisa posted had me gagging. Americans should just give up trying to do British accents. They simply don’t get it. Beyond cringeworthy.

I've caught some of it both weeks, Al. (Would love to actually sit and watch but no PVR, so gotta float back and forth from chores to the TV with at least the audio audible). I can prove watching this week: I had posted a Rosanne offering here beforehand and lo and behold, they have her talking about the night her dad Johnny was on nationwide TV with...Bob Dylan. The next morning she felt like the hippest 13-year-old at school!

Now, now, Darren...take a chill pill. It was intended as a comical piece, hence, the ridiculously cartoony voices. PBS is the American network with primarily documentaries. [wink]"Colbert" is on CBS, which carries the serious and the silly.  Actually, the interview sections are more straight...give 'em a whirl if you haven't. 

(Yes, yes, bonnie...my ballot is coming)

Gold: Sheryl Crow "All I Wanna Do" ... is have another hit record!  Great start for Sheryl but pretty quiet since the '90s
Silver: The Byrds "All I Really Want To Do". The Byrds loved Bob ... me too.
Bronze: The Beach Boys, "All I Wanna Do". A fair way back from Sheryl's All I Wanna Do.

Tin: Heart "All I Wanna Do Is Make Love To You"  I always liked the music but "I didn't ask him his name" ... "so we found this hotel" ... "I left him a note" title should be: "All I wanna do is have casual sex with a bloke I met just once and picked up by the road side."

Very interesting story re-Heart hit.  Good on you girls!  Written by Mutt Lange eh?  The guy that cheated on his wife Shania by sleeping with her best friend. They did get married.  And Shania ... well she then married the husband of her best friend.

I've really enjoyed what I've seen of that Country Music doc.  (on PBS).   I presumed when Roseann said that about 'her husband' determining that Johnny was hip when he sang with Dylan on the show, she was talking about Rodney Crowell.  (but that story would tend to contradict the song Rodney wrote about discovering Johnny's music as a kid 'way out in the pines' and instantly appreciating it to be as great of art as the Mona Lisa and 'Shakespeare spoke real fine'.  

On a less positive note, though still somewhat entertaining, I was forced to be in a mini-mall parking lot in Sunnyvale for 2 1/2 hours last night, strangely about 85 F !  and waiting for a kid to finish Russian School of Mathematics, and of course, lots of the whistleblower stuff, but then, an  I/eye? heart radio blog called 'Disgraceland' that featured a long, perhaps one hour reading of Johnny Cash's ...colorful life. not a big 'true crime' drama fan, myself, but borderline believable.   they also had a 'in coming episodes', they will have one about 'Beach Boy Dennis Wilson and his buddy, Charles Manson.' (also on 'Disgraceland'.    That's what I heard.

The Country Music series was excellent. Yes, Johnny C. was in throughout. The ending song on the last night (eight, two-hours shows) was Maybelle Carter doing Wildwood Flower. Worth watching.

All I want for Christmas is my two front teeth. Anyway:

Arctic Monkeys -- "Do I Wanna Know?"
youtube.com/watch?v=fQ17tnRrA8k

"Stop the World I Wanna Get Off With You"
youtube.com/watch?v=3PyoxMSEHYI


There was a play in the early 60s called Stop the World -- I Want To Get Off. I thought it was a fascinating title when I was 11. Anthony Newley sang "I Wanna Be Rich" in it. It's ok if you like this sort of thing.
youtube.com/watch?v=hC1UPMn_uRI


The Dave Clark Five -- "Any Way You Want It" (a clangy classic that might be in the battle next month)
youtube.com/watch?v=INgNG5a5yQE

The Roches -- "Want Not Want Not"

You can take my house away I don't care
You can take my job away I don't care
You can make my money I don't care [why did they suddenly change it to "make"?] 
Might as well make my boyfriend I don't care [because they're songwriters?]

Lisa, I laughed so much watch thing the Beatles clip. If you haven't heard Baby Shark, don't go there.

Darren, thanks for your votes. I sense that both you and st kilda are expressing a little jealousy that the lead singer of a hugely successful rock band has not picked you up while hitchhiking in the rain and used you as a human rag doll and free donor service. But seriously, good on them for not singing it anymore, and interesting to discover this is actually a cover with souped-up lyrics.

st kilda, thanks for your esteemed votes, and great to Sheryl get another gold placing. I always thought Mutt Lange resembled a golden retriever that needed grooming.

John B. I had to google Russian School of Mathematics. Oh boy, two and a half hours of Russian based mathematics learning ... I've failed already.

John E. Thanks for your votes. By giving The Byrds you gold you've really closed the gap between TBB, The Byrds, and Sheryl.

Larry, thanks for your musical accompaniments. You always provide a good mix of sound. Loving the Arctic Monkeys.


KISS know what they want.




Brian's girls.





And a coupla kiwis. Marlon William and Aldous Harding.

Cheap Trick are emphatic fans of this week's theme. Dare we have a "Who Sang It Better?":




Now then...

GOLD -- Sheryl Crow, All I Wanna Do -- One of the few that's been played to pieces, yet still tolerable for me. For whatever reason, by comparison, "Soak Up the Sun" is one I'll either enjoy or be irritated enough to punch someone in the face (almost). 

SILVER -- Byrds, All I Really Want to Do -- An obvious influence for the late Tom Petty, huh? For that reason, I'll give it a little extra credit to inch up from Bronze.

BRONZE -- Beach Boys, All I Wanna Do -- Nice daydreamy feel to it, although I'm more impressed with the backing vocals.

TIN -- Heart, AIWDIMLTY -- Never did care for this...they've done better. Just trampy, like some say. 

Hands up....anyone else remember Rodney Dangerfield dancing to this in "Caddyshack"? :



Can't get enough 90s around here, can we? Named for a fictional band mentioned only once in a Monty Python record skit:



Can't get enough Beat-alls, either. (CAUTION Darren: Contains "the Schnoz"):   [wink]



Thanks, bonnie!
(PS: Yep, I had the misfortune of hearing "Baby Shark" a while back).  [frown]
