Well, this is the final Mail Music Monday in February — or what I like to call “British Invasion” or “Beatlemania Month”. Instead of using another tune by The Beatles I decided to use this song about them.
The Four Preps started playing in 1956 and are still playing. Bruce Belland founded the band with three friends while attending Hollywood High School and is the only original member still with the group today. According to Wikipedia,
“The group last appeared on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart in 1964, when “A Letter to The Beatles” charted for a total of three weeks beginning March 21, peaking at #85.”
Another thought as we close up Beatlemania Month is that tomorrow is George Harrison’s birthday. I was hoping to find a piece of mail music by George but couldn’t. If you know of one, I hope you’ll share it in the comments.
