WIRTW #459 (the “weeps” edition)


How did I not know this was a thing? Last summer, The Beatles released a remix of my favorite song of theirs, “While My Guitar Gently Weeps”. It commemorates the 10th anniversary of Cirque du Soleil’s Beatles’ show, LOVE (an absolute must-do if you find yourself in Vegas). The new arrangement is the final work of legendary Beatles’ produced George Martin before his passing.


(For what’s it’s worth, I prefer what many consider the definitive version of this song—from George Harrison’s 2004 induction into the Rock Hall—performed with zero Beatles, one spawn of Beatles, two Traveling Wilburys, and one beautiful and blistering Prince guitar solo—The New York Times has a wonderful account of that performance here).

Here’s what I read this week:
