Song of the Day: 'Good Day Sunshine' by the Bangles

So it turns out obsessively (re)reading Wikipedia entries can actually pay off -- like discovering the Bangles covered "Good Day Sunshine" on a 2008 kids' album! Just imagine how thrilled Bea Arthur Michael Steele, Vicki Peterson, Susanna Hoffs and Debbi Peterson must have been in when they met legendary Fab Four producer George Martin at the Hollywood Bowl back in 1999, shortly after reforming! I was just thinking how it seemed like the gals were broken up forEVER, yet the time they were apart (nine years) is a fraction of the time they've been back together ... or were even together in the first place. Getting older is funny that way.


And because the gals can't get enough of Paul, John, George and Ringo, here's a 2012 radio appearance I'm also just discovering, posted in 2018.
