One of the Greatest Songs Ever Recorded: “I’m Gonna Sit Right Down and Cry Over You” by The Beatles!!!

As far as I’m concerned, pretty much every Beatles song is One of the Greatest Songs Ever Recorded!

That’s my starting point when analyzing Beatle tracks!

My radio show, “Theme Attic,”  is on Wednesdays 12PM-4PM ET.

The show can be heard on WHFR 89.3 FM in the Dearborn-Detroit area of Michigan, or it can be streamed with this link: https://www.whfr.fm/streamer/!

It will pretty much follow the pattern of The Most Awesomest Song of the Day.

I’ll select a song to celebrate and then give my thoughts about it. Nothing really brand new here that hasn’t been done before. But since I have a website, I can collect them and lay out what my own greatest songs are.

Here’s a link to have a look at “The Greatest Songs Ever Recorded”: https://philmaq.com/the-greatest-songs-ever-recorded/! Occasionally, an “awesome song” crosses over to become a “Greatest Song!”

Even though I always emphasize new music and artists, it’s always fun to take a short drive through the legendary artists, since they influenced those other artists!

But a song doesn’t have to be old or done by a legendary Theme Attic Hall of Fame member to be thus honored.

I can think of several songs that are only a few years old or less that I could identify as One of the Greatest Songs Ever Recorded.

This will be fun, and hopefully you will join me on my journey!

Today’s song isn’t an original Beatles’ song and it has a bit of history.

Starting out as a 1954 Roy Hamilton mid-tempo R&B recording, “I’m Gonna Sit Right Down and Cry Over You” didn’t warrant much attention when it was released.

And it stayed that way until a very young Elvis Presley morphed it into a faster rockabilly tune on his first album!

Seeming to be a somewhat forgotten song, The Beatles added it to their repertoire as they ramped it up to full on rockin’ speed!

The song was included on “The Beatles at The Beeb.”

Personally, I like the song for John Lennon’s strong vocal backed up by Ringo’s super frenetic drumming!

I’m including the other versions to make it easier to find and compare them!
