31 Days of Music – Day 1

I decided a few weeks ago I would share with you some of the great bands and musicians that come from my city of Liverpool and the surrounding area throughout August.

On the August bank holiday weekend in 1992, a music festival began in Liverpool originally called the Mathew Street Festival (aka Beatles weekend), now known as Liverpool International Music Festival, that brought great music and food to all those visiting. I worked in Liverpool for some years and lived there for 3 years before moving north. August was to me, the height of summer fun and music was a big part of it.

So, in light of the reason for my posts, my first offering is The Beatles Eleanor Rigby. A song I have always loved, not just the lyrics, but the haunting melody which opened my ears when young to the Merseybeat. I first heard this whilst watching Yellow Submarine.

The Beatles – Eleanor Rigby
