And now for something completly different...

2 MP3's here of old classics that many may have heard, but maybe not. If you're getting as sick & tired of all the current political talk as I am, this may help clear your head.

....George Martin produced all of Peter Sellers early LPs and singles and one of the reasons that the Beatles and Martin hit it off so well at their first meeting was that the Fab Four were impressed that he had worked with Sellers and Milligan from the Goon Show. Here are a couple of recordings of Sellers parodying Beatles classics (again produced by George Martin) which include a Shakespearean reading of 'A Hard Day's Night,' in the manner of the "Winter of our discontent" spech from "Richard III" and it's manic b-side 'She Loves You' inspired by Sellars' character in Dr.Stranglove. This record went Top 20 in the UK charts in the mid-60s and Sellars and The Beatles went on to become close friends....

I own this on CD. It's pretty funny if you like Sellars's style.
