THE COMICS' BEAT: Captain Marvel In The Beatles' 'The Continuing Story Of Bungalow Bill'

Mondays. They are worse than Dr Doom and after a heavy one, it can be a little hard to get the drum pumping again for the week ahead. As a former DJ, each Monday I dig into my collection, and chuck up a hit nodding to comics' best.

This week, I thought I'd chuck up a hit from one of Dale's top bands, The Beatles. The Fab Four more than skated close to the name of Marvel's main quartet, their true comic allegiances showed in the White album track The Continuing Story Of Bungalow Bill. With danger all around, who saves the day? None other than The World's Mightiest Mortal.

Deep in the jungle where the mighty tiger lies, Bill and his elephants were taken by surprise
So Captain Marvel zapped in right between the eyes - zap!
All the children sing




 What do you think?  Full lyrics are here. To buy, visit itunes.com and back here Monday for another Comic Beat!

  1. I swear to god, I didn't know this was about Captain Marvel. Yeah I know, favorite overall album of theirs, and I didn't even know that until now. *Hangs head in shame*

    Thanks for the free info mate. Appreciate it:)

  2. I remember singing this song in school assembly Dale, and that line was probably the only one I didn't mime. Glad you liked it!
