"Let's Be Natural"
Just a dumb marginal note. I really love Badfinger, but I've always found their "Beatlesqe-ness" overblown. More guilt by association than any essential musical resemblance. I'm for The Rutles in that respect too.
Mine comes from "Big Trouble in Little China:"
"Have I paid my dues? Yes sir, the check is in the mail."
That’s long been my own motto, or one of them, and I take it seriously. Lux effulgeat, amigo.
An admirable motto IMHO. Personally mine is "Try, try again, again, again, again, again ...angina."
I mean, I would stack the Beatles up against an oak for perfection...
As to the other, given that I have committed my life to rewriting the history of the Beatles to a truer and more beautiful narrative, I am swinging for the fences on that art thing.
I guess Michael O'Donoghue did figure out how to get the last laugh, after all.
"Quod ego dico, ego facio" is my Latin motto but, in English, I prefer what a man named Hawk said about his friend, Spenser for Hire, when they asked why those two were friends?
"Because he do what he say he gonna do." was his reply.
