New Music For Old Rockers – Fab Four Edition

I actually got to see some live music over the weekend which I will tell you about in an upcoming post. But for now, here’s a quad pack of new music for you. You may have heard these already, but maybe one or two will be new for you.

How about some new music FROM an old rocker, specifically an old Beatle? Ringo Starr is 80 and still cranking out new music. He’s dedicated his last couple decades to spreading his message of peace and love, and this song is all about that.

Okay, so there’s no music video and the song is nothing special. But it sounds so comfortably Ringo with Beatlesque overtones, and the dude is 80! Let’s see you spread such an important message about peace and love in such a listenable way at 80. Rock on, Ringo.

Now, how about another new track from a former Beatle that sounds nothing like the Beatles?

This is a new Paul McCartney track that sounds a bit more like Beck since it is a collaboration between these two music giants. Regardless of the mix, it works. Enjoy!

Cool music video and super funky dance vibe from Sir Paul and Beck.

In a softer vein, Hiss Golden Messenger has a song about a place where we all want to go at one time or another.

I don’t know about you, but I find comfort in that song, from the words, melody, and smooth sound. Sanctuary? Yes, please.

This final song of the foursome is just plain fun. If you’re feeling down, let Jon Batiste cheer you up.

Live music is returning to Chicago in 2021, and a live music post from me is coming this week. Stay tuned.

  1. So true, my friend. It has been waaaaay too long. But it’s coming back. As for the Beatles, I never saw them as an entity, but did take my oldest son to see Sir Paul in concert about 15 years ago or so. It was an awesome show. Late in 2019, I went with friends to see Todd Rundgren, Mickey Dolenz, Christopher Cross, the last surviving Badfinger member, and some other guy pay tribute to the White album. Fun show. It was worth the price of admission to see Todd dancing on stage in pith helmet and shorts while performing Bungalow Bill. That local theatre has been shuttered since COVID, but they are doing renovations and pledge to be back open soon. Fingers crossed.
