Around the Blogosphere: Weekend Edition

(Inane introductory paragraph removed by blogger.)

No problem at all finding our lead story today.

The Beatles - Two of Us (Let It Be. . .Naked version) - The Rawking Refuses to Stop - Also has video of the final, rooftop concert

I'm still new enough at this bloggig that I thrill whenever some "colleague" chooses to add me to his/her blogroll. When I find s/he is posting high quality stuff I can't resist, it's even better. Such happened with--and here I can accurately use the word "friend" even though she doesn't actually know me, etc.--Ginny over at My Little Ghost Friend. Tesco Chainstore Mascara were one of my earliest posts, but I'll not add a link because the song I posted's been cut off at the source. Sigh. Ginny's posted two superdupers, including an excellent cover of "That Thing You Do," penned by Fountains of Wayner Adam Schlesinger.
Tesco Chainstore Mascara - Sun’s Shinin’ For You & That Thing You Do - My Little Ghost Friend
If all I had found were these two songs, 'twould be a bounteous harvest. But wait, there's more.

(Embarrassing transitional paragraph removed by blogger. Really.)
