Song of the Day: Love Me Do

Friday, October 5th, 2012

On this day there can be only one song that qualifies for the Song of the Day…

On October 5 1962 four guys from Liverpool released their first single, Love me Do. These guys would later be known as the Fab Four…yeah, todays Song of the Day is a song by one of the most influential bands in history, The Beatles!

There is another event that make October 5 a special date:

Last year, the world lost one of the most influential technology visionaries of all time, Steve Jobs, passed away. 🙁

There are some links between the two; well, The Beatles founded Apple Corps Ltd (informally known as Apple) a multimedia corporation mostly known for its record label, Apple Records. Steve Jobs was known to be a huge fan of The Beatles and he used The Beatles as his model for business: “They were four guys that kept each other’s negative tendencies in check; they balanced each other. And the total was greater than the sum of the parts. Great things in business are never done by one person, they are done by a team of people.”

OK, back to the music; swing along on ‘Love me Do’! 😉


And as bonus clip for today, check out the official Apple tribute to Steve Jobs, which is shown when you browse to today:



Oh, and for us geeks; the first official version of the Linux kernel, version 0.02, was released on October 5 1991, w00t! 😉

Maria Irene Fornes: “When I’m not doing something that comes deeply from me, I get bored. When I get bored I get distracted and when I get distracted, I become depressed. It’s a natural resistance, and it insures your integrity.”
