TILL THERE WAS YOU

TILL THERE WAS YOU…Valentines week of love songs for Wednesday is from the way back machine Mr. Peabody. Some of you are too young to remember the early 60’s and the bomb, the Berlin Wall, Cape Canaveral and The Beatles. Music was on our table tops and our transistors. Top 40, Billboard and “45’s”. When the boys from Liverpool stormed into our American lives everything changed. Changed in so many ways. Others are more learned on the group’s history but the child bride still gets all wiggly when their music comes on our stereo while I write. “Till there was you” features her alter heart throb Paul (you know he’s like 70 now) and is her pick for the mid week love song for all of you.

  1. 45’s and 33-1/3’s! Such an improvement over 78’s! Electric gramophones! Dansette! Short term memory has its problems but long term?????????? Oh ………… and (at least in U.K.) Lonnie Donegan and his Skiffle Group! ๐Ÿ™‚

    • The tabletop RCA tube radio in my bedroom picked up the top 40 stations from Buffalo, NY, Windsor, Ontario, Chicago and New York City. I got my first guitar soon after I saw all those screaming girls and the onset of puberty. Never made it past garage band status but I learned to appreciate just how much talent it takes to be really, really good at making music.

  2. It does bring back the memories. We played a game in class the other day, and there was a reference to the 45sโ€”the youngsters, of course, had no idea what that was. No doubt they’d have been doubly confused by the 33-1/3s and 78s. But I remember listing to quite a few of my mom’s old songs on those 78s โ€” and she had a ton of 45s. Bye-Bye, Love and Tequila are still favorites of mine. ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for the reminders.

  3. What most people don’t realize is that this song is from The Music Man, written by Meredith Wilson. The first time I heard it, I said “I know that song!” My musician brother said “No, you don’t! Paul McCartney just wrote it.”

    Thanks for the memories.
