It was January of 1969, and The Beatles were a mess. The recording of an album tentatively titled ‘Get Back' was meant to be a ‘back to the basics' return to their roots, but personal problems between the Beatles escalated and culminated in George Harrison's walking out on the band.
A merry Christmas Eve to you.
While I'll encourage you to make the most of August, get the jump on the other guy in December, and use the summer slowdown to your advantage, there are times when even fervent job geeks like me will advise you to take a load off and skip the job hunt.
This week is one of them.
Whatever your denomination, this week is for family, festivities, philosophy and fresh thinking for a fresh new year.
So I thought the most ecumenical of approaches would be to share this video of Bing Crosby and David Bowie singing a lovely, peaceful, percussive ditty together:
Because nothing says "the holidays" like a traditionalist from the Greatest Generation and an androgynous glam rocker sharing a piano and a song at the most wonderful time of the year.
Have a wonderful week, Readers!
I'm taking the week off, but will be rooting for you again next week!
