Beatlemania has a hold on me so here’s another great Mail Music tune from the Fab Four. “Please Mister Postman” was originally a hit for the Marvelettes. According to BeatlesBible.com,
“Originally the debut single in 1961 by Motown group The Marvelettes, Please Mister Postman was recorded two years later by The Beatles for their second album With The Beatles. It had been a part of their set since 1962.”
Because February 9 marked the 50th anniversary of The Beatles first appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show, I’ve deemed February “British Invasion Month” and I’m trying to come up with the perfect Mail Music Monday song for next week. Tuesday February 25 is George Harrison’s birthday so I’m hoping to find a George Harrison song, or a Beatles song featuring him. If you know of such a song or would like to make a suggestion for Mail Music Monday, I’d love to hear it.
