How Do You Like It? by Gerry & The Pacemakers

I wanted to listen to an older album again, and picked out Gerry and his pals for a listen. It’s one of those albums where you’re like, I recognise this song from somewhere else! This time it was Jambalaya - and I’ll be honest, it was weird hearing a song about the Bayou in a Liverpool accent. But hey, the band sing good rock songs, makes a good album, and of course has the world-famous You’ll Never Walk Alone that is now so synonymous with football.

Please Please Me by The Beatles

So, yea, I’ve been doing this album thing for five years now and I’ve only just got around to listening to a Beatles record. If I’m honest, I’ve been avoiding them because the Beatles aren’t my favourite. They’ve got a lot of good, classic songs, obviously, and we know they’re super important to the music world, but mostly, they’re just not my thing.
