As many of you know, Alyssa and I are big Beatles fans and we are anxiously awaiting the upcoming release of the Beatles Rockband game. When we first saw the trailer for it, we knew we had to get it. It's one of the main reasons for our recent purchase of a PlayStation 3.
The release date is 09-09-09 (number 9? number 9?). Yesterday we pre-ordered it, and we're excitedly waiting for it to come out. Curious, I counted how many days were left. 53! How can we wait 53 days? So, like kids anxiously awaiting Christmas, we made a chain of links to countdown the days.
On each link we wrote a Beatles song. (That's how prolific they were--we wrote 53 different songs and could still go on). We'll be posting the "Beatles Song of the Day" on my Twitter feed (twitter.com/ersatzjello). Alyssa and I also hope to do a week in review on this blog for all the songs for that week--talking about our memories of the songs and how they've influenced our lives, as well as trivia about the songs themselves.
