I grew up listening to The Beatles. I can’t remember a time when I didn’t know their music or their names. My mother would play them on 45 rpm records while we were home. When were out in the car, we listened to them on 8-track tapes. I remember singing along with The Beatles when I was small enough that I could stand up on the front seat of my dad’s 1969 Mustang.
She loves you, yeah, yeah, yeah…
She was just seventeen, and you know what I mean…
Man, that takes me back.
The Beatles were fun and exciting. In the midst of a rather turbulent childhood, they were a constant reminder that there were other ways of thinking and being and other places to go in the world. Even after all these years, their music makes me happy and upbeat. It is utterly timeless.
I’m not really sure what the purpose of this post is. I’ve been listening to The Beatles and John Lennon’s solo music for the past couple of days, so I guess that’s where my mind is right now.
Browsing through YouTube, I did come across a great song that made me think of my small circle of blogging friends; those who have been supportive and encouraging through some stressful and difficult times (even when they didn’t realize it). In closing, I dedicate this song to them. I’m sure they know who they are (that includes you, Honey).
