There are lots of songs about lots of subjects, but I thought I’d try to come up with some related to little green men and spaceships traveling to and from other planets. They used to be referred to as UFOs, not UAPs, but whatever you call them they are fun to talk/sing about.
My second 2023 inductee, 14th overall, is Sir Paul McCartney. He is the first to be in my hall twice, once for The Beatles and now for his post-Beatle career.
The Beatles’ bassist, vocalist, and songwriter would continue solo beginning in 1970 at the sign of the break-up of the band. He would release his first LP, McCartney, a month before the release of The Beatles’ swansong Let It Be. The album, rich with experimentation, has McCartney performing all instruments and vocals himself, aside from some backing vocals performed by Linda McCartney. It also contained the song, “Maybe I’m Amazed”.
I’m goin down to shoot my old lady,
you know I caught her messin’ ’round with another man.
“Hey Joe” is an American song from the 1960s that has become a rock standard and has been performed in many musical styles by hundreds of different artists.
My 4th inductee is the incredible Pink Floyd. In 1973, a friend of mine had the 45 of “Money/Any Colour You Like” and I was hooked. Soon, I would, like everyone else, buy a copy of the Dark Side of the Moon LP. I later went back to their beginnings, and as a psychedelic fan, was not disappointed.
