BlogFestivus Day 4 and Monday Music

On the 4th Day of Christmas my true love sent to me....

..Four Calling Birds

I’m not talking about budgies, I’m not talking about girls, I’m talking about song birds and that would be the most famous fab four ever, namely:  John, Paul, George and Ringo aka The Beatles.

I love The Beatles and grew up listening to their music as my big Skin ‘n Blister (sister) was, and still is, a MASSIVE Beatles fan. Thanks to her, I know most of the words to all their hit songs and  how to sing all the harmonies…pretty pathetic, I know.

So, I figured, seeing as its Monday and I usually do Monday Music Moves Me over at Xmas Dolly, I thought I’d tie the two together and, you know, kill two birds with one stone. I hear you groaning, Oh I know, it’s a “cheap” shot….(Kak Grap gaan sit in die hoek!)

Well, A Daft Scots Lass’ 12 Days of Christmas song now goes :

Four Liverpool Blokes,
Three Brontë Sisters,
Two Jimmy Choos
And Jamie Oliver's Satay Chicken on a Stick.

Beatles can be eaten as well. Ask Yoko she lived off of dead beatles for a long time!

You're right - there were a lot of birds in the Twelve Days of Christmas.

The lyrics of your rendition of the 12 Days of Christmas are quite unique. I think by the last day I'm going to be a good way. :-)

Oh my another without Christmas songs, but I am a Beatles fan for sure. I don't remember Paul ever having a beard. Have a great week.

Cathy Kennedy said...

LOL great post. I love the four song birds! There isn't a person on the planet who doesn't like the Beatles. What an awesome group they were!

Love the thought about 4 songbirds! Thanks for sharing the Beatles with us!

Xmas Dolly said...

I didn't know this about the Beatles. Paul looks super different with a beard that's for sure. Great song though. Thanks for playin along.

Lucy said...

I had two siblings that crammed the Beatles in my head, not complaining, just saying they were a little ahead of my time too!

Lorie Shewbridge said...

Great song - I love the Beatles and have since I was a kid, too.
Your 12 days of Christmas post can pass as a Christmas song in my book. =)
Have a great week.
