Paperback Writer

I guess I have impulses too. I couldn't help myself. I have been thinking about this $30 purchase for a couple of weeks. I bought The Beatles' White Album tonight.

Actually, ever since Tim and I were driving home from St. Louis over July 4th weekend when we stumbled upon KUNI public radio station's Night Music. Every Sunday night they have an hour dedicated to strictly Beatles tunes. That night was great. Every song they play follows a theme and that night's theme was celebration and freedom.

I think every Beatles album is great, but this one has some of my favorites that I do not own yet.
  • While My Guitar Gently Weeps
  • Blackbird-I love this song in a big, deep, absolute way...Take these broken wings and learn to fly...
  • I Will
  • Birthday
  • Revolution

My recent impulsive, yet a month in the making purchase begs the question...What is your favorite Beatles song? Everyone has one. Thankfully, some of us have many.

I love...
  • Here, There and Everywhere
  • Get Back
  • Blackbird
  • Here Comes the Sun
  • Daytripper

Oh man, Sara. This could take years. I'll condense as best I can: Something, Mother Nature's Son, Blackbird, If I Fell, Here Comes the Sun, Please Please Me, And Your Bird Can Sing. ALL OF ABBEY ROAD. And a million others that I know I forgot. Damnit, too hard. Oh, and While My Guitar Gently Weeps. And Good Day Sunshine. Ok, I'm done.

"Two of Us". K and I play it together and sing, and it's freaking lovely and makes my heart all happy. :-)

I think I may have mentioned it, but K has a huge affinity for the beatles. We have two dogs and a cat. Abbey, Rigby, and Mr. Mustard (or Kitty Mustard if you are E). Apparently until the end of time, all pets we have will have names from beatles songs.

Good purchase girlie. Have you checked out Ray Lamontagne? I do beleive you would really enjoy him.

good album choice. you should buy them all.

Dear Prudence - The White Album

Don't Let Me Down - It's easiest to find this song on Past Masters, Vol. 2. It was originally a B side to "Get Back" and was supposed to be on Let It Be, but Spector cut it.

I've Got a Feeling - Let It Be
