"Rhubarb, Rhubarb, Rhubarb"

Let's play a game. Let's test your attention to detail. What do these two videos have in common?

First up, a clip from the Propellerheads' "Decksanddrumsandrockandroll" (what a great title!) featuring the one and only Mizz Shirley Bassey . It's called "History Repeating" (this one's fer you, GW!)

Okay. Now up we have "And I Love Her" from the movie "A Hard Day's Night" starring 4 guys that other than building the foundation upon which all that modern pop music(and culture, and super dope haircuts)rests, they didn't really amount to much. I like "A Hard Day's Night". I always remember it as the one where the boys pretty much kept to the script and didn't mumble "Rhubarb, Rhubarb, Rhubarb" in between giggles. "A Hard Day's Night" was shot BBD. Meaning Before Bob Dylan. Meaning before the boys met Bob Dylan. When they met, Bob gave them...er...a present. If you want to know what that present was, just watch "Help!" which was made ABD(After Bob Dylan)and it will become abundantly clear what Mr. Zimmerman gifted them with(other than with profound musical inspiration).

Don't just say "the videos are both in black and white". That's lame. Sorta DDVS lame. Dylan Does Victoria's Secret lame.

currently listening to: Gomez, Bring it On

Hey, Thanks for the dedication. And I got the answer, only a little late. But a weird thing happened first. I tries to play "And I Love Her" and the video lagged. So I clicked the play button a few more times and I ended up with the same video opened in three windows, all stalled.

Then they all started playing at almost exactly the same time. Close enough to hear the difference, but not quite right.

I felt for a moment that Bob had stopped by with one of those little presents.

Hey GW!!!! LOL! Great comment! Love it!! sorry/ooops on the stalled vid...darn that YouTube! But if the almost insync effect gave you a Dylan gift then rite on!!! LOL! :) Do you know if you play Nickleback's "Remind Me" out of one speaker and another one of their singles out the other they merge together perfectly...same song structure, just different lyrics...but hey, if a formula works!!! Anyway, I was very happy to dedicate to you, you are such a wonderful presence, and a terrific blogsphere friend (with great musical taste!!!):) Take care, GW! E.
