Song of the day

"Right Said Fred", by Bernard Cribbins.

This song is my childhood. There may be more credible / "worthy" ways to acknowledge George Martin's contribution, but, heck, how many songs would have travelled through more radios and television sets?

It was also the punk rock of its day: no frills, no nonsense, no solos; it got straight to the point, and then it got out of the way.

George Martin also produced "Rain", by The Beatles, three of the most perfect minutes human ingenuity has ever created. You probably won't find that on YouTube, but the chances are you have it at home somewhere.
