Record Tuesday: A Hard Days Night

09 - A Hard Days Night by Ella Fitzgerald on Grooveshark
A Hard Days Night covered by Ella Fitzgerald

The fact that I am even awake right now surprises me. I don't know how you moms do this thing called parenting... Let me just take a moment to tell you how much I hate seagulls. I know this seems off topic but I feel like it is relevant. So I take the girls to Sonic for dinner and to play on the play place. Ruth gets up for one minute and then next thing I know a seagull is off with the rest of her hamburger. Seriously... that thing was ruthless. It stole from a child. Poor little Ruthie. 

The first song to pop into my mind as I grabbed my laptop and got into bed was A Hard Days Night. It's relevant to my life at the moment, and I am a big fan of Ella Fitzgerald's cover. I love Ella, and the Beatles. 

Good Night



  1. I've never heard this version before but I really dig it! No seagulls in Oklahoma but that sounds quite awful! Poor girl. I'd pout if my hamburger got stolen, too.

    1. Count yourself lucky you don't have seagulls... :)

  2. A kookaburra did that to me when I was a kid!!! It was mighty sad :(
    Whenever I take care of my cousins and say similar things to my aunty, she says while it's still exhausting, it's different for Mum's because they're taking care of their own kids. I suppose it's good to know that makes a difference, even if it's probably not very helpful for you :P Good luck with the rest of the baby-sitting! Rhi xx

    The Wildest of Dreams

  3. I've never heard this cover before- it's great! I hate seagulls (any kind of bird really). I've just got back from the Cornish Coast where there are a lot of them- everywhere! I swear they're as big as people. I kept a careful eye out the whole time we were there!
