Today's Happy Hour Soundtrack...

... is VERY retro, in that we're doin' an all-Beatles Friday... listening to Abbey Road, the White Album, and Revolver.  The thang that amazes me is the fact I remember ALL the lyrics to the songs on these albums, even though the music is more than 40 years old.  Which just might could explain why I can't remember what I had for dinner last night (among other thangs), seein' as how my brain is all clogged up with lyrics from songs that are older than my kids and a lot o' my friends.

So.  What to choose from all this?  Wait no more.  From Abbey Road:

One sweet dream
Pick up the bags and get in the limousine
Soon we'll be away from here
Step on the gas and wipe that tear away
One sweet dream came true today
Yeah... soon we'll be away from here, stepping on the gas and all that. 
From the White Album:

You know I'd give you everything I've got
for a little peace of mind
I'd give you everything I've got for a little peace of mind
I'd give you everything I've got for a little peace of mind
Heh.  Well, there IS that...

And from Revolver:

But if I seem to act unkind
It's only me, it's not my mind
That is confusing things.

I want to tell you

I feel hung up but I don't know why,
I don't mind
I could wait forever, I've got time
Yeah, well... right.  I think the interesting thang about the Beatles' music is how timeless they really are.  Thangs that were relevant all these years ago are still relevant today, albeit for entirely different reasons.


  1. I bought the remastered box set (with all the early albums in mono) when it came out a couple years back, carefully ripped it all to iTunes at the highest fidelity settings, and for weeks and weeks we had the whole thing on in heavy rotation at our place. There are not many bands who can claim to have ever made records this good.

    1. Yeah, the re-mastered albums are SO worth the money. I agree with you completely on your "other bands" point, too.

  2. Relevance and reasons. Ain't that the truth!


Just be polite... that's all I ask.
