Check out the mallu version of Queen’s I Want to Break Free.

(Click on the above link to open an Odeo player window, click ‘play’ to start the song. It’s worth the hassle. Believe me…)

In case you know who the pink-lungi-wearing, card-carrying, beef-eating genius behind the track is, please let me know.

Manoj the Malayalee inspired this post. Thank you.

I love books on bands and have over the years acquired many Rock histories, encyclopaedias, biographies, guides and a big collection on The Beatles.

Biju’s Oldies (from Connection Mathai) kicked off my Beatlemania 27 years ago. And as my love for the Beatles sound increased so did my passion for everything Beatles – I read the authorised biography as well as books that proudly proclaimed ‘No Beatle was interviewed in the writing of this book’ – and everything in between; I read the interviews & gossip, hagiographies & hatchet jobs, analysis, reviews, critiques; I collected photographs, album artworks, commemorative stamps…

Been a magical mystery tour, and I loved it.
I guess, “the love you take is equal to the love you make”…

Now, the caption is very original, thank you.
It was 50 years ago today that John and Paul first met, thus setting off this big huge thing

Last summer, when our families escaped to Kochi to beat the heat, Sunil M and i sat down to see how many guys from Rajagiri Class of ’81 we could list. We counted 50 of the 98. Not bad, i guess.

Next time I go to Kochi, i will track down the group photograph and upload it here.

And while of the subject of classmates, i want you guys to check out a beautiful song by Statler Brothers. Kurt Vonnegut (RIP) introduced me to the Class of ’57, but then that is another story…

And again, while on the subject of classmates, Sunil M and i were classmates, both my elder sis and younger sis were classmates of Sunil’s sisters. Limca Book of Records, are you listening?

Tommy’s selling used cars
Nancy’s fixing hair
Harvey runs a grocery store
and Margaret doesn’t care
Jerry drives a truck for Sears
and Charlottes on the make
and Paul sells life insurance
Part time real estate

Ellen is a hostess
Frank works at the mill
Janet teaches grade school
And probably always will
Bob works for the city
And Jacks in lab research
And Peggy plays the organ at the Presbyterian church

And the class of ’57 had its dreams
We all hope we’d change the world
With our great works and deeds
Maybe we all thought the world would change
To fit our needs
But the class of ’57 had its dreams

Betty runs a trailer park
Jan sells Tupperware
Randy’s on an insane ward
And Mary’s on welfare
Charlie took a job with Ford
And Joe took Freddie’s wife
Charlotte took a millionaire
And Freddie took his life

Johnny’s big in cattle
Ray is deep in debt
Where Mavis finally wound up
Is anybody’s bet
Linda married Sonny
Brenda married me
And the Class of all of us
Is just part of History

And the class of ’57 had its dreams
But living life day to day is never like it seems
Things get complicated
When you get past eighteen
And the class of ’57 had its dreams
All the class of ’57 had its dreams
