The Beatles 40 best songs: at 17 Get Back

get back

Get Back is Paul. That’s a better version of Lady Madonna. You know, a potboiler rewrite.”
– John Lennon (1980)

The song was credited to The Beatles and Billy Preston. It was The Beatles’ only single that credited another artist.

We have included 10 different versions in this post!

“Get Back” is a song recorded by the Beatles, originally released as a single on 11 April 1969. A different mix of the song later became the closing track of Let It Be (1970), which was the Beatles’ last album released just after the group split. The single version was later issued on CD on the second disc of the Past Masters compilation.

The single reached number one in the United Kingdom, the United States, Ireland, Canada, New Zealand, Australia, France, West Germany, and Mexico. It was the Beatles’ only single that credited another artist at their request. “Get Back” was the Beatles’ first single release in true stereo in the US. In the UK, the Beatles’ singles remained monaural until the following release, “The Ballad of John and Yoko”.

“By the time sessions reached Apple the lyric had changed and the title… well, Paul had his own ideas in that direction. George Martin, over the talkback: ‘What are you calling this, Paul?’ Paul: ‘Shit. Shit, take one.'”
– Mark Lewisohn (The Complete Beatles Recording Sessions)

bob dylan cork 2014

 

Tomorrow we here at JV will drive for 7 hours to Stavern were Bob Dylan will play his 17th concert on this “Europe summer tour 2014”. Next day we will drive down to Kristiansand and catch the 18th concert. Happy days are here!!

Here are some statistics from this leg:

  • 12 concert have had a pretty stable setlist, the only change being #4 changing from “What Good Am I?” to “Workingman’s Blues #2”. Seven of them with “What Good Am I?” & the last six with “Workingman’s Blues #2”.
    It’s a safe bet that we will not hear “What Good Am I?”, and we will hear “Workingman’s Blues #2”.

The setlist we will get at least one of the days (maybe both days):

  1. Things Have Changed
  2. She Belongs To Me
  3. Beyond Here Lies Nothin’
  4. Workingman’s Blues #2 (earlier: What Good Am I?)
  5. Waiting For You
  6. Duquesne Whistle
  7. Pay In Blood
  8. Tangled Up In Blue
  9. Love Sick
    (Intermission)
  10. High Water (For Charley Patton)
  11. Simple Twist Of Fate
  12. Early Roman Kings
  13. Forgetful Heart
  14. Spirit On The Water
  15. Scarlet Town

Bob+Dylan Willie+Nelson

[blockquote cite=”Mr. WordPress” type=”left, center, right”]He’s [Willie Nelson] like a philosopher, you know. He gets to the heart of it in a quick way, gets it out and it’s over. And this leaves the listener to think about it.
~Bob Dylan (28 April 1993).[/blockquote]
