The Beatles: Can YOU guess which song John Lennon and Paul McCartney recorded in one day?

Published

John Lennon and Paul McCartney had an incredible writing partnership during The Beatles years. But did you know they once finishing writing and recording one of their many No 1 hits in just a single day? The track in question is The Ballad of John and Yoko.

According to Far Out Magazine, Lennon and McCartney managed the feat while George Harrison and Ringo Starr were away.

John said in 1969: “It doesn’t mean anything.

“It just so happened that there were only two of us there.

“George was abroad and Ringo was on the film and he couldn’t come that night.”

The late Beatle has now been dead as long as he was alive.

And this year a new documentary film called John Lennon: The Final Year is coming out in late 2020.

The film is focused on the musician’s activities in 1980, rather than the assassination itself.

Lilla Hurst, the co-managing director of Drive, who is the film’s British distributor, said: “This groundbreaking film gives exclusive access to people who were part of John Lennon’s life during his final year and sheds light on a part of his life that hasn’t been previously revealed.”

She added: “We were fascinated by this story as soon as it was brought to us and we look forward to launching the film to the content industry.”

In 1980, Lennon and The Beatles had been broken up for a decade.

After a five-year break, Lennon released his Double Fantasy album, which included songs by his wife Yoko Ono.

John Lennon: The Final Year will also feature previously unseen interviews and archive material with those who spent time with him that year.

Slipknot’s Corey Taylor tells people to “stop whining and put your god damn mask on”

Slipknot, Corey Taylor

Slipknot’s Corey Taylor has sent a message to those complaining about having to wear a face mask during the coronavirus pandemic, telling them to “stop whining and put your god damn mask on.”

Countries including the UK, Australia, Vietnam, Mexico, Singapore and parts of the US have introduced face mask mandates to help stop the spread of coronavirus.

In an interview with Australia’s Triple M Rock, the Slipknot frontman was asked for his views on those who weren’t sticking to the face mask rules. “Stop whining and put your god damn mask on,” he began. “This isn’t an isolated incident. My country’s loaded with these dumbasses that think it is some sort of political standpoint or some sort of partisan garbage.

“And I’m just like, ‘Are you serious?’ Just because you haven’t had anyone in your life affected by it doesn’t mean that it’s not a real thing.”

Taylor continued on, comparing wearing a face mask to the masks he and his bandmates wear on stage. “I once had to wear a full head mask for eight hours while doing Slipknot press,” he said. “Eight hours straight – didn’t take it off, but these people are going to bitch and moan about wearing it for 10 minutes at the market? Get over yourselves.”

Meanwhile, Taylor will release his debut solo album ‘CMFT’ on October 2. The record, which was announced last week (July 29), will feature a mix of newly written songs and tracks that date back to his teens.

The Slipknot and Stone Sour frontman originally planned to release the album in 2021, but brought it forward after the coronavirus pandemic cancelled Slipknot’s 2020 touring plans.

Two songs from the record have been shared already – the Tech N9ne and Kid Bookie-featuring ‘CMFT Must Be Stopped’ and ‘Black Blue Eyes’.

Diplo joins Joji on hazy new summer anthem ‘Daylight’

Published

Joji and Diplo

Diplo has teamed up with Joji of Asian rap collective 88rising for new track, ‘Daylight’ – listen to it below.

Set to appear on Joji’s upcoming new album ‘Nectar’, the new record is a mid-tempo summer anthem that sets the half-Japanese, half-Australian former YouTube star’s vocals against Diplo’s hazy production.

“It might be nice for people to hear a song about daylight, especially when we don’t get as much of it as we used to,” Joji said of the track.

In the accompanying video – directed by Munachi Osegbu – Joji and Diplo act as struggling PAs on a ’90s music video shoot. The pair unintentionally derail the shoot of the young (at heart) pop divas by bumbling around the set.

Watch the video for ‘Daylight’ below.

‘Daylight’ is the fourth pre-release track from ‘Nectar’ and follows the release of ‘Sanctuary’, and Joji’s first 2020 single, ‘Run’. The album is due to arrive on September 25.

Earlier this year, Diplo shared some key tips on the best way to prevent contracting the coronavirus while travelling.

As the virus continues to spread, the Major Lazer producer made light of the epidemic, posting a tongue-in-cheek video to his Instagram captioned “travel tips.”

The video, soundtracked by Foxx’s ‘Wipe Me Down’, saw Diplo sat in first class on a plane wearing a face mask and rapidly wiping nearby surfaces with wet wipes. His friend, also sporting a mask, ran over with a wipe and disinfected Diplo. The words “Not today coronavirus” were written across the top of the video.
