My music playlist for today (February 19, 2012 edition)

My “birthday music playlist” from last Friday on the direction the music of The Beatles pointed me in as a child could not be left there without giving a hint as to the kind of influence their music had on such a variety of other musicians, known worldwide.

Did you happen to miss my “birthday music playlist” blog post from last Friday?  Well, it’s here again below:

A music playlist for my 51st birthday

There will be some “cover versions” of Beatles songs here that most people are familiar with.  But, then, there will be others that some people may never have heard in their lives.  For instance, how many people even know who Lenny White is when they hear him and his group of friends play through a funkified version of “Lady Madonna?”

I’ll give you the answer:  Lenny White is a brilliant drummer who mostly made a name for himself with the jazz-fusion group Return To Forever who once set the jazz-fusion-loving world on fire.

And how many people know that before a singer named Steve came along that Journey did a rip-roaring cover of “It’s All Too Much” that I ALMOST prefer more than the original?  Almost.

Here we go, with just A FEW of my favorite Beatles covers …

About A View From The Middle (Class)

Hi, my name's John. I've thought about this blogging stuff for a number of years now. I got into it for real on November 10, 2011, after suddenly losing my job in late October. I've been blogging ever since, and I kept it up over a period of a year and four months of being unemployed or under-employed, to try and paint a picture of what being jobless with a family to support can be like. Finally, on February 28, 2013, I got a better job that puts us back into the "middle class." I won't stop blogging, though. Who knows, maybe I can actually turn this blogging stuff into a way to earn a living someday! If you go to my blog at and click on my About page, it'll tell you a lot about me -- maybe more than you ever wanted to know. I'm just your average, laid-back guy who's GOING TO MAKE IT IN THIS WORLD, despite all the roadblocks thrown in the way. I also launched a "niche" blog on music at that I'm very excited about because of the popularity of music playlist articles here. Also, check out and "Like" this blog's Facebook page at for instant updates. Look forward to seeing y'all around!
