Day 30- A song that you haven’t listened to in awhile

I realised that with all the songs I have listened to and thought about during this meme, one group I hadn't listed was one of those that I love the music of - and is a huge influence in the growth of the 60's ... and of "pop" music in general - The Beatles.

This song is one that I have always loved, but the accompaniament also reminds me of one of the Ghost of the Robots tracks, with the off-beat clapping.  So, here is "I Wanna Hold Your Hand"  (weird to notice the left handed playing by Paul McCartney!)
The song starts at 30secs -


As to a James song I haven't heard in a long time - it would have to be "Goodbye" whis was on the GotR EP Valerie, and I have on one CD that I don't often listen to!


So - That's all for this meme ... Hope you have enjoyed one or two of the songs I have picked over the 30 days.
