How timely that I’m featuring music to provide clues for my upcoming mystery novel, and it’s the Beatles’ 50-year anniversary to America.
It was Feb. 9, 1964 when they appeared on the Ed Sullivan Show and made music history.
“Something” written by George Harrison (my favorite Beatle) is the only song he wrote while with the Beatles that topped the Hot 100 chart. It’s a beautiful song about the mysterious qualities of a woman that attract a man.
And we all know, there are so many things about a woman that can mystify a man. 😉
To recap, the clues so far were:
The Tide Is High

Have a lovely week,
John Lennon is gone, and so is my favorite Beatle, George Harrison, but Paul McCartney is still going strong. On the popular SNL show this evening, he danced a skit in a cowboy outfit, played a mini-harmonica, and did a segment on “Weekend Update” with Seth Meyers where he mimicked Camilla Parker-Bowles. He was funny without even trying.
Sir Paul also performed (and looked svelte and sexy doing it) several musical numbers, two from his band Wings—”Jet” and “Band on the Run,” a medley of “A Day in the Life” and “Give Peace a Chance,” and closed out the show with “Get Back.”
Though his voice was noticeably weaker than it used to be, I still got a warm and fuzzy feeling watching him. In my opinion, he’s one half of the greatest song-writing duo in modern music, and I’m so inspired to see he’s still rocking after all this time—46 years after he first performed in New York with the Beatles on the Ed Sullivan Show. Maybe I’m amazed.
