The Beatles Philosophy

Everybody seems to think I'm lazy
I don't mind, I think they're crazy
Running everywhere at such a speed
Till they find there's no need (There's no need)

From: I'm Only Sleeping, from Revolver, 1966.

What memories. What feelings from the past their songs evoke in me. Yes, I was basically there. Just a kid but I was there.

I can still smell the new picture pages from the Magical Mystery Tour album that my older brother would have killed me over if he knew I was handling it and listening to it. I made sure he was out of the house when I took my trips with the Beatles. He ultimately had to build a lock-box for his albums with a pad lock! It kept me out. But he would forget to lock it often enough. I kept up with the latest music that way.
