I Want To Hold Your Attention

________________________________________________________________________________________________



When I first heard  this song 
in 1964, gravity took
a lunch break.

My hands started clapping
and crossed the pond 
to England where four 
Liverpool lads sang:

Oh Yeah, I tell you something
I think you'll understand
 





The B-side of Fillmore Slim's
You Got The Nerve 
Of A Brass Monkey
is a song with the 
exact same title as
the Beatles classic.
  
Mr. Slim recorded his
I WANT TO HOLD
YOUR HAND
in 1957.



The Beatles recorded the  "Lennon/McCartney"
I WANT TO HOLD YOUR HAND in 1963.

To counteract my inability to provide a recording link for 
Fillmore Slim's vinyl image, I hereby provide a bonus
hyperlink  to a Beatles' song that Mrs. CarPeo 
will fall  in love with because it is 
about a dog: the title is  
Black Dog Blues.
The next Beatles' page is  here.
