Friday Song: The Beatles

It was 42 years ago this week. “…a decisive moment in the history of Western civilization.” – Kenneth Tynan, 1967. And I still think this song is their crowning pop achievement.

  1. It’s certainly up there in mind book, christian. Great minds think alike. Blogger Jeff had The Lads’ Get Back up earlier. Thanks for this, my friend.

  2. I can’t say it’s necessarily the one I’d put on for any given Beatle mood, but it’s brilliance is undeniable.

    Haunting.

    Happy weekend.

      I think this song just sums up the 60’s and the Beatles hybrid musical genius more than any other. I can only imagine what it would have been like to hear this for the first time in 1967. Hell, it woulda turned me into a hippie.
